Popular Blogs

We all have our favorite blogs, but what is it about them that captures our attention? What brings us back again and again? What inspires us to come out of lurk mode and leave a comment?

I come across blogs that have comments into the 100s and I'm curious as to what draws us to them? I think photography is one ingredient to a good blog. I'm also thinking humor pulls people in. But what else attracts us to a blog not once, but repeatedly.

I'd love to hear your thoughts, so please come out of lurk mode long enough to share. I'd also love to know which blogs you find yourself going back to again and again. Do you comment on them? If so, what makes you comment on one while you lurk on another?

Just call this bloggy research lol. Or you can call it 'I'm too tired to think of a real post'.

30 More Meandering Minds.

Comments are addicting, aren't they?
Often I don't leave a comment because I don't have anything profound to add. Inanities aren't generally considered "profound".
The blogs I enjoy reading usually have a Christian attitude, humor, and I do like photos. Although, there is one blog that seems to over do it a bit. I am amazed at the good photos some people take. Mostly I read Mommy blogs, cooking blogs and recently, financial blogs, oh and some homeschooling blogs. Most I don't read everyday. I am ever the lurker, only leaving comments when I feel strongly about something or when it's someone I actually know. When there are already 10 comments stating it was a good post or when at least one person has said what I was thinking, I really don't see a need. But I do enjoy when people comment on my blog- but I don't even get 10 comments! I am lucky to get one or two.
Good luck on your research!:)
