Today’s Daily Post prompt asks: What makes a blog great? What makes you follow a blog or “Like” a post?
I think what really draws me to a blog in the first place is interesting writing or content. I like to see new stuff or think about things in new ways, but I don’t want to have to read a lot because I just don’t have a whole lot of time in which to read. That being said, I will follow a blog that is posting consistently interesting content of appropriate length. For the individual post, the same criteria would apply, but liking the post is often a different story. I refuse to like posts that are bad news in nature because who likes bad news? Unless it’s along the lines of creative non-fiction, there’s nothing to like about it – however, I will generally like anything interesting, anything inspiring, anything new.
So I feel like I’m losing my self-respect because now I don’t have time to do anything but Daily Post prompts most of the time. I can blame it on work, like its seriously not my fault, but what can I do about that? This is draining the interest out of my writing.
