I know we just had a discussion on Friday, but this is more open-ended than my other one about book review request forms where I was specifically soliciting advice.
This is something I’ve been thinking about for a while. Why do some people follow one blog and others don’t? What makes you want to follow a blog?
Obviously subject matter and your level of interest in it is important. I, for example, wouldn’t follow a blog devoted to football because I really dislike football. That only makes sense. But sometimes I’ve unfollowed blogs despite the fact that the subject matter is great. Sometimes it’s because the blogger never responds to comments, never posts on a regular schedule and/or gets boring/loses that spark that made me follow the blog in the first place.
So what I want to know now is this: What makes you follow a blog? What things do you look for in a blog before you decide to follow it? Are there any follower dealbreakers for you?
