I admit the one major aspect the leaves a quick impression to me is the blog’s design (a designers prerogative me thinks). A good design blog makes me wanna go “ooooh~” with heart eyes. But that first impression will wear off, and eventually it’s not the one that sticks, it’s still the content that will make me subscribe for the loooong haul.
When I was still a book blogger, 90% of the blogs I follow were book blogs. But as I slowly and almost completely left the book reviewing community, I also ended up following every kind of blogs and niches. And it didn’t help that 90% of those blogs went *poof* anyway. They left the blogosphere altogether so I took it as a sign to do some metaphorical spring cleaning. And I thought it’s not a good decision to box my blog subscription to what my blog is or its topics. Limiting to what “I” also do is not really good decision. So I spread my wings and how followed blogs that interest me!
I have every kind of favorite blogs right now. I follow a few personal blogs because there’s something so interesting to read about people’s everyday lives. It doesn’t have to be luxurious. Even a dog’s day out is something really uplifting to read. I also got charmed by, guess what? No takers? Alright! Journal blogs!! I found amazing stuff and they make me wanna go and finish mine. I’m thinking of sharing mine by the end of the year. But before that all happens I need to make it, make it, make it. I also love following DIY/Home Improvement blogs. I plan to make a office space renovation someday (y’know money is tight) so I’ve been checking out some places on the web for some much needed inspiration.
Of course my list wouldn’t be complete without my top most passionzz! Web Design & Development is up there along with my anime/manga news. Although chunk of information I got for the latter come from twitter, I still am following anime/manga related blogs. Anime in particularly ones that review episodes weekly. Instead of watching it (which I can totally say not my priority as of the moment) I ended up just reading them to save time.
But Mitchii why aren’t you telling, give us the deets, share us those blogs! Sorry fellas, I’m saving that post for another day. Well, at least you have an idea how my RSS reader looks like? It’s chaotically everywhere~
