10 Reasons Why I Love Your Blog


There are certain blogs I will return to time and time again due to many differing reasons. I don't leave comments as much as I'd like as it's pretty hard work juggling my own blog, a full time job, reading other blogs and juggling everything else life has to offer! But trust me, I have my favourites and these are the reasons why...

1. Blog Photography - if you are using natural light as your best friend and appear to be a pro at flat laying then your blog will catch my eye no doubt about. In terms of travel photos, I prefer light and airy with not too much going on.

2. Content - As much as I'm brought in by your photography, if your content isn't any good then I won't be returning. I like blogs that are varied that include lifestyle posts as I like to relate to the writer. I also get put off if spelling and grammar is poor, the odd mistake is fine but a post full of them is a big no no so proof read!

3. Template - This is really important too as too many background colours and an unstructured layout will put me off your blog. White backgrounds make your photos pop and stand out, it doesn't need any further jazzing. Plus if your site is easy to navigate then I will be able to engage with it more.

4. Engagement on social media - If you're active on social media and I can see a snippet of your life outside your blog and I like the way you come across I will tend to enjoy your blog more and keep returning.

5. Being Unique - I find the best way for bloggers to be unique in my eyes is to write personal lifestyle posts. Offer your opinion and tell me what you enjoy outside of beauty products and fashion and I'll return. It's very difficult to be unique when it comes to reviewing products as lots of people will review the same thing and potentially have similar opinions.

6. Your face! - As funny as that sounds, if I cannot see your face then it puts me off. I don't mind what you look like, I like to see the writer with my own eyes.

7. Your header - This is important to get right as it's your header on your blog page and should appear on each. A lot of bloggers are including personal animations in their header which is a really nice idea for a personal touch.

8. Accessible social media buttons - If I like your blog then I will definitely follow you so if you have your buttons displayed clearly, it makes it easier for me to return to your blog when you promote a new post.

9. Pets - If you have a pet, include them on your blog/social media as lots of people own pets and love to follow a fellow pet lover - this truly makes me like you more.

10. Be yourself - If you are genuine then you will come across this way. If all of your work is your own and reflects your personality then I'm sure to return.

What makes you return to somebody's blog? I'd love to know so leave a comment below.

  2. I love to return to blogs with clean, sharp design which works quickly. Another important thing is for me to have a beautiful photography and useful content at any website. Otherwise I might not remember the blog at all and as a result not return! http://www.igaberry.com
