Well, whadda ya know! Help yourself.
Mmm. Just licking a frosted flower from my fingers. Gosh, those are delicious!
Which leads me to my question of the day: what do you think makes a deliciously successful blog?
Right off the top of my head, I'd say:
- Personality: You get a sense that the blogger's an interesting person (and, for me, the addition is "nice" person. Trainwreck types can be "interesting," but I've only got so much patience for neuroses.)
- Writing Style: Someone who has a way with words and who knows the value of writing concisely.
- Content: Pretty self-explanatory. I'll probably be interested in a blogger who blogs about the endlessly fascinating subject of writing. But the wonderful thing about the blogosphere is that there's something for everyone. There's probably even a blog in which someone's Aunt Nellie lavishes her attention on the breeding of Afghan hounds. So if Afghan hounds are your thing, Aunt Nellie's your woman.
- Frequency of posting: Once I go all starry-eyed over a blog, I need my insatiable hunger to be fed. So, if my new blog-crush only posts when the moon is blue, I'm going to lose interest--and probably wave a sad goodbye.
The QQQE is definitely another swoon-worthy one. Matt is all-of-the-above-awesome, as well as being one of the most supportive people in the whole wide world.
Thanks for stopping by! Another cupcake before you go?
