15 Day Book Blogger Challenge: Day 8


Day 8:  Quick!  Write 15 bullet points of things that appeal to you on blogs!

YIPES!

  • Light colors
  • Lack of floaty stuff behind the mouse
  • No CAPTCHAs
  • Funky type, but not so funky that I can't read it
  • Contact / follow me buttons
  • Personality
  • Professional yet fun (ie, not sounding like a stereotypical sorority chick when talking about why you like something)
  • Reasons why you like something, not just a summary or a "It was so great, you should totes read it, too!"
  • Not having to do a ton of stupid stuff to enter a contest.  Just let me fill out a google form for Pete's sake!  I don't want to have to follow you, your mom, and your dog on twitter, facebook, pinterest, tumblr, etc just for an entry.
  • Variety of books read and recommended
  • On cooking blogs:  easy recipes.  Ain't nobody got time for grating lemons to have to create an infused olive oil that you really don't need that much of and doesn't add that much flavor to your finished meal in the first place
  • On crafty blogs:  if you're going to blog about the awesome thing you made, give me the steps in that post.  Don't just say, "It's like this post over here".  Again, ain't nobody got time to go find your old tutorials.  
  • On organizational blog/blogs with printables:  Just add the adobe file to the main page.  Don't make me click to another post (see crafty blog).
  • Links to where I can buy the book, gadget, whatever
  •  Clear photos!
 The 15 Day Book Blogger Challenge is hosted by April of Good Books and Good Wine.  And don't forget to head over to Andi's ABC's to find out Andi's book related confessions!

  1. The contest thing! SO MUCH WORD! I started to enter a contest earlier and I had to legit follow like 25 people on Bloglovin' to do it. I stopped after 4. It was so annoying. Not worth it.
