Book Blogger Hop: Feb. 13-19

So I've been determined to incorporate some new things into my blog this time around. I finally came to the realization that every blog post doesn't have to be a 330+ word review on the latest book I've read. I found this little weekly hop through some method of random searching and clicking, and thought it would be find. 

Here's how it works

Every week Billy over at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer poses a question submitted by a blogger. Anyone can answer the question and then add their link to the list. It seems pretty easy and fun.

This week's question

February 13th - 19th - Is there anything that makes you keep returning to certain blogs? (submitted by Elizabeth)

My answer 

There aren't a whole lot of blog that I would say I visit on a regular basis. (I know, I know. Shame on me) The very few that I do frequent are actually finance blogs. But I'm trying to get better at keeping track of blogs that do hold my interest. Many times I find ones that I really like, but as soon as I've closed the page I've forgotten their name and how I found them. 

There are a few things that will hold my attention and keep me coming back: 

1. I really enjoy blogs that post more than just review, I like seeing tips about writing and blogging. It's very helpful when you're a new blogger and have no idea where to start.

2. I also like to see blogs that are nicely designed, without clutter clogging up everything. 

3. At the top of my list though, is a well-written blog. If you can write your thoughts clearly and concisely with a little humor thrown in there... then I'm sold.


  1. What a great answer. All wonderful points.

    I love uncluttered blogs too. I see you visit finance blogs....must be why. Same as me because I am a business teacher. We like organization and neat. :)

    Well-written reviews and posts are a draw also.

    Nice to see you on the Book Blogger Hop. Stop by my blog if you like for my answer as well as giveaways that are ongoing until April.

    Happy Hopping!!

  2. I totally understand about blogs with just more than just reviews. I like seeing other stuff besides reviews as well.

    1. Thanks for checking out the post. Weekly memes have been my new favorite thing to see, other than reviews.

  3. All great points and things that I think influence my visiting as well. A little humor is always great especially mixed in with clear concise thoughts!

    1. The humor really adds a personal touches to blog posts and I just love that. Thanks for visiting!

  4. Great answer! I also like blogs that share more than reviews. It's a fun way to get to know them better.

    Have a great week!
