Just a few things that have been on my mind about this blogging adventure. I miss reading and following blogs that have gone "invite only" after I've been reading them for a year or more - it's like a book with no ending - so disappointing. And I "miss" them.
Then something I did recently that I should have known NOT to do - the removal of a blog from my blog roll. Once you add one to your blog roll other's can and WILL use your blog as a launch point to get to the other blogs. I had this happen to me when a blogger removed all her blog links from her blog so I should have known NOT to do this on my own blog.
Blogs with dark background and white lettering - IMPOSSIBLE to enjoy! I know I can change to viewing with "no style" and get it back to black writing on a white background but I follow a LOT of blogs and just don't feel I have the time to invest in doing that so they get cast aside. Which is a shame as some are REALLY good in content.
Music on blogs.... I removed mine; used to have it but then decided it didn't add anything to the reading experience. If music is on a blog; I myself wish the set up to turn it off was at the top of a blog so I didn't have to hunt for it. Now that being said I do LOVE the blogs with calming music or nature sounds - I know I'm a flake but soft bird songs are so much better than some of the music out there.
We have family members that just don't understand why we blog - Scott and I both have blogs. We enjoy it for one thing; there is a connection with people all over the world; something I share may open someone's mind to something new and we learn so much from other Blogs. There is a sense of community in Blogland that is hard for us to find locally as we think a LOT different from those close to us geographically. We get a lot out of blogging plain and simple. Just another thing to add to our uniqueness.
What makes a Blog enjoyable to YOU?
