#bloggerpinion: Why Do You Follow A Blog?

This week, I've been wondering how you girls come to the decision to follow a blog and what you look for in blogs when they read them or find a new one to read!

Whether its, 1, 50 or 1000 followers. I'm sure your blog is amazing and yet to be discovered!

When I choose to follow a blog I look for content I enjoy and am interested in, something I'm actually going to read and someone I could possibly relate to. I find that I don't follow some really great blogs because of the mass amounts of followers, amazing outfits, photos, and mostly because I can't relate to the blogger, and it makes me feel like just a follower if I follow and not a true reader. I follow simply just to keep up to date with posts, and because I like the blog, blogger and contents. I read these blogs because I genuinely enjoy what you write! I also dislike "follow me and I'll follow back" ultimatums...
What do you look for when you follow a blog and what makes you follow them?

  1. It's quite simple for me - if I like a blog then I'll follow it, amount of followers etc. doesn't really matter to me. If I like the content and want to read regularly etc. then I just hit the follow button! :)

    I don't really like the "follow me and I'll follow you back" comments, if you like a blog and want to read it then you'll follow it.

    The only other thing I'm not keen on is if a blog is just full of stock photos - I like a bit of personalisation to a blog, it doesn't have to be amazing quality pictures or anything like that just a mixture of photos you've taken yourself as well is nice to see(if that makes sense)- but that's just what I think anyway :) xx

    1. Thanks for sharing your opinion! I'm glad I'm not the only one who hates the follow 4 follow situation!

      And I agree, personalisation is a big thing I love in a blog! It makes sense about pictures you've taken too and things like that :) XO

  2. Great post! I follow a blog down to mainly the appearance/design. If it looks cute, and got a decent few posts, then I follow :) I like to try and follow a few new people every day, because I find that everyone has something unique to express through their blog :)

  3. I generally follow a blog if I like the content - and the layout is nice/uncluttered - or if I like the bloggers personality and they make me laugh. But I also like to follow some new bloggers who are just starting out as I always think it's nice to support newbies and I remember (not too long ago) how nervous I was when I first started.

    I agree with Sarah above though - those 'follow for a follow' blog comments drive me nuts!

    1. Thanks for sharing! I think an uncluttered blog is nice too, but I always give them a chance anyway because sometimes the content might be really good. I think clutter is a distraction at times, but not all the time :)

      And I agree about supporting newbies! We were all newbies once!
