This got me to thinking about what people are really looking for when they are reading blogs. Our statistics show we have a lot more people reading our blogs than we have followers, which is great. Yet, I keep wondering what it is that they like. What is missing in our statistics, is the vital part of the equation that would allow me to tailor this blog a little more to what our readers truly want to see. While I am so enjoying writing randomly and not having a set schedule this year, I also would like to interact with others on topics that would engage our readers.
Last year was a mixed bag in that I was blogging on a set schedule for each day. Yet, not one of my many varied topics struck a solid resonate cord that I could identify with as a peak interest for my readers. Topics were varied, they ranged from the controversial to the educational to the latest color trends in fashion, nothing is off limits.
For myself, I tend to follow blogs that interest me. Be they educational, or keeping up with authors I enjoy reading. However, I am not drawn to any of the gossipy blogs about celebrities. Obviously, I follow a couple of business blogs and of course gardening and food blogs, those are a must.
So what is it that you look for in a blog, that grabs your attention to follow it on a regular basis?
