This week’s question:
What attracts you to a book blog? What puts you off in a book blog? Do you share personal stuff on your book blog?
For me, first and foremost, is if the blog has similar reading likes of genres that I enjoy and content. At least once a week, I search the internet and visit many blogs, looking for hosts to invite to Partners In Crime Tours. I am amazed at the number of book blogs that there are now, as compared to when I first started in this community. Thousands. A large majority being YA/MG. The next is if the blog has a pleasant look and easy to navigate. To me, that says that they put in a little extra for their readers since we are the ones who see the main page. Things I don’t like are, and there seems to be less of it now than before, and that is music on the site, difficulty navigating, and word verification. However, and it happened to me on blogspot, I understand why since there are those people/bots that fall under the category of spammers and one has to protect their site.
I do share some personal events in my life and also enjoy seeing the same on blogs that I visit. I believe it gives one a little window into the blogger behind the screen.
