The “award” I received and some recent posts on other blogs have got me thinking about blogging. How we all have different tastes, styles, and looks to our blogs. And also, how we all likely prefer to read different blogs.
As I mentioned in my post from the other day, I don’t care for the blogs that are basically just a way for bloggers to sell their wares. I am not against them, in fact I do follow Tin Can Knits, but just don’t fill my reader with their links. I couldn’t put a pulse on why I don’t care for these kinds of blogs until Soaring made a comment to that post:
“I enjoy your blog, a lot of the more commercial ones I find quite boring”
Nail. On. Head. That’s it. I find them boring. If I even start reading one I find myself just skimming past all the sales spiel to get to the knitty gritty. The posts are too dry, no real life to them. Sometimes they are too verbose about that one item they are hawking. Or, the kicker, TOO MANY DAMN PHOTOS!!! I do not need 12 photos of the SAME EXACT THING! That issue also turns me off normal knitting blogs. I like photos, I even like different angles or shots of the item. But anything over 4 photos of the same angle is ridiculous. But maybe that’s just me.
And the 2nd thing on my “don’t even bother” list. Pod casts. I know, I must be the only one. LOL. But I just can’t! I don’t get into them. Sorry if you are all over them, but I have stopped visiting some bloggers because they have gone to that format. I know, there are probably some that are just the bees knees, whatever that means, but they just are not for me.
So, what are your least favorites when it comes to knit blogs?
