Your blog disappoints me...

Posted February 16th, 2013 at 9:59 PM by Retro Bug

Simple question, when it comes to blogs what keeps you around?

I see some people mentioning things about blogs on here and it got me curious. I know some people don't blog because they don't get feedback and how "stupid" blogs get like x amount of comments. So, what would you like to see in a blog? A blog that covers a multitude of topics? Focuses on one? Lengthy entries?

I'm not sure where I want to go with my blog so I'm just trying to get ideas.

    Blogs about someone's life outside of the internet.

    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.

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

    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.

    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
