As I thumb through my favorite blogs and search for new ones, I have begun to realize that I’m drawn to blogs with certain characteristics. Maybe it’s my busy lifestyle that doesn’t afford me the opportunity to sit online for hours at a time (honestly, on a good day I get about an hour). Maybe it’s my lack of patience (it’s been known to be the cause of many a habit of mine). Maybe it’s my lack of time management or the guilt that overcomes me when I’m on my laptop rather than being more “productive” with my time. Whatever the case may be, I find that my attention is drawn to posts with few but dramatic images, limited text, and infrequent posts.
Maybe it’s the lure of the unknown. I like a little mystery. A post with two versus ten pictures of the same outfit, is more likely to peak my interest. I’m more likely to read whatever text is on the page and even more likely to subscribe if the blogger posts no more than three times a week. I think I just get overwhelmed when there are tons of posts to read and so little time. Am I like anyone else?
Maybe I’m just too nosey for my own good. I like to know about people and I guess I kind of get turned off when I see a whole bunch of links. I want you! LOL What do you think? What characteristics do you look for in a blog ? Am I the pot calling the kettle black?
