    Your blog disappoints me...

    I usually read all blogs but the ones I like most are ones about thoughts or opinions, or interesting life stories etc. I'm don't like ones that are about things on PC (unless they're promoting an event, or a promotion or something in which case they're understandable/enjoyable) as they seem trivial and not really worth blogging to me. Also, blogs that are like... a gif of something from a show and that's all... meh. And same with chat logs, as they're not fun to read if don't know the people.

    And Retro, I always like your blogs! They're well thought out and interesting, so keep 'em up! :D

    Your blog disappoints me...

    I like blogs about people doing cool things outside of their PC life (hiking wouldn't interest me though, but if you went to Nintendo World, blog that **** man!). I like to read about people's progress in games, Pokemon or not, if they tend to blog that stuff (I do!). That's about all I can think of. :)

    I also agree with Curious.

    The sorts of blogs that don't interest me, but rather really annoy me are those that ooze egotistical.

    Blogs about an interesting thought someone had, or something interesting (or honesty, mundane) that's happening with them offline. Blogs about stuff that happens online don't interest me at all because... well, usually you can see that stuff anyway. Unless it's about another website in which case as long as it's interesting, I guess it's alright. But no-one really wants to read "hey look how many posts I have" or "hey guys here are chat logs from people you know anyway" or "hey here's an event you probably aren't interested in anyway". Those just... aren't interesting for anyone not involved.

    As for your specific questions about content - I prefer a blog that focuses on one topic. I'm more likely to read a blog that explores one thing properly than one which just throws stuff at me, probably in half-arsed detail. You can always wait a day to post another blog to talk about something else. As for length, as with most things on PC, quality > quantity. If you've got something to say then take as long as you need to say it to a degree which satisfies you. If that's particularly short or long then don't worry about it.

    Hey, don't I know you?

    You could always start by just saying hi. You'll be surprised how many people appreciate a nice catch-up.

    As far as irl or online goes, if someone mistreats you, even if they were a good friend, they aren't a good friend anymore, sadly, and not worth your time no matter how much they say they miss you- sometimes it's just for appearance's sake. :c Though that's just me; you're welcome to give them another chance.
    Sometimes people do also just drift, but it's natural- though if you make an effort you can find it's pretty easy to become close again. Sometimes friendships never leave you, even if you don't talk that much.

    Geeze, tell me something I don't know. That doesn't make it any less disgusting to me. Honestly, I never said anyone needed to wash their hands after touching their faces. What I'm saying is they need to be mindful of what they're doing after that. I don't want to get sick because you aren't paying attention.

    Yeah, same here. My school is too (AGAIN) but I think I'm more interested in seeing all the different costumes/masks/etc than actually participating.

    Oh! I forgot the comma in the title!

    Unfortunately, I do and you'll be glad to know I did relatively well with my short two hour studying session.

    Wow, congrats! I wish I had the motivation to eat healthier... But where's the fun in that?! :p

    Chocolate and Pop always are a tough one for people to give up for lent. (I don't know many people that've actually succeeded.)

    I kind of have some resolutions, but they're... on hold for right now haha.
    Yeah, you're right it is solely about the individual. It just feels weird not having them already known at the beginning of the year like you're "supposed" to.

    On hold, eh? Happens, aha!
