Why do you read a blog?

What is it that makes you read a blog?

What makes you move on and not want to read blog?

I realize there can be plenty of opinions and one person might stay for what another would leave. Variety can be such a great thing. Feel free to give one or more answers to any of the above questions.

Here are a couple of my answers:

Makes me read:
I’m a sucker for cool graphics, images and design.
Topics I’m interested in sway me easily to stay longer.
Humor catches my attention.
Good writing skills can hold me at a blog.

Makes me move on:
Text I find hard to read.
Bashing others that appears to be ill intended or for sensationalism.
Using what some might consider insulting language as a shock factor.
Over advertising or marketing can irritate me is some cases.

Hi- I'm here via Blog Explosion. Good thoughts on this post.
I gazed over at your sidebar after reading it and noticed a novelty I had not seen on any blog yet.

As an artist, I've seen the "change the background" option for many sites for decorating or art, but not on blogs. Cool!!!
Take care

hi!
um, i like fun names and cool backgrounds and such, but if posts are too terribly long (like some of mine are) and there isn't an about or something to tell me who you are, then i'll probably move along....

Ok...what keeps me reading....

Stuff I can relate to. Humorous stories. Good pictures.

Makes me leave...

Boring. Condenscending. Mean. Not my kinda stuff.

Michele sent me....this time!

Excessive political and/or religious ranting drives me away quickly. I like hearing opinions of 'the people'...but some get a little carried away for my taste.

I prefer the blogs that give me a giggle, or something I can relate to. :)
