Why do we visit Blogs?

Why do we visit Blogs?

I am interested what keeps us 'hooked' on certain Blogs. I visit about 6 or 7 Blogs regularly. For me it is a few things and I would love to hear others views about why we keep ‘coming back.’

Here’s my list for starters - I like:

  • Regular Postings
  • Variety of postings
  • Originality
  • No jargon – simplicity please
  • No pretentiousness
  • Professional yet some light relief as well
  • Feeling like I am part of a community
  • Friendliness
  • Stories
  • Good quality argument
  • Non confrontational
  • Plenty of smiles with comments
  • A Blog where the owner makes me feel like a customer
  • Some personal stuff about their life from the Blog owner

Absolutely right. We visit blogs because there are many things one can learn by blogging. Some blogs (like yours) are very informative and are quite diverse in terms of content posted on it. It's also nice to know more people and their interests / passion. I like your list.

Thanks Sriram - I love lists!! :-)

New cutting edge tip from Tom Peters the other day

Step 1 Every day - write a list
Step 2 Do the things on the list

Wonderful! - Simplicity!
