As you peruse your LJ Friends Page or work through the latest entries on blogs you follow with Google Reader or the like, have you noticed how some posts catch your eye more than others? Sure, a lot depends on things outside that blog writer’s control eg: the reader’s interest in the subject, how much time he/she has etc. Nevertheless, lately I’ve been wondering if it’s possible to come up with a generic template for a good blog post (by ‘good’ I mean gets lots of readers and comments).
Personally, for this sort of thing, I find it more helpful to first identify what doesn’t work, then go from there. With that in mind, if you’ve got a minute, I’d appreciate your feedback.
For the purposes of this poll, I’d like you to assume that the questions refer to a journal entry by someone whose blog you follow.
From the following list, please select anything which would stop you reading someone else’s blog post.
