You’ll have to excuse me if I ramble a bit here, I'm thinking out loud. Not a particularly tidy process.
When I first found out about hobby blogs, I (naturally) followed the ones that did something to catch my attention -
Interesting paintjobs? Followed.
Unique conversions? Followed.
Ideas I wanted to steal and improve upon? Followed.
You get the idea.
I’ve seen blogs fall by the wayside in a similar manner to my own, and i’ve seen them go from producing average content every so often to great content on a weekly basis. While real life can always get in the way (remember my spinal surgery a couple of years ago? That gets to happen again soon!) the blog always seems to sit there like the loyal pet, waiting for the owner’s return.
I normally visit the blog every day, sometimes multiple times a day to see what everyone else is up to – my blog list to the right became my feed. None of this RSS nonsense for me.
Special mention should go to Ron at the sadly now defunct, From The Warp. I figured the way to push the blog was to get it on his blogroll, at the time (to my knowledge) the most read. Probably not the best way to go considering the slapdash nature of the updates but It seemed to gain a few readers who may not of discovered the blog otherwise.
So bringing me to the point of my little ramble – what do you want to see from the blogs you read and why do you read them regularly?
Seeing as I like to read blog posts with pictures in, here's a hint to a project coming in the future.....
