Blogging Questions From 'She Lives'
-- How do find the blogs you read regularly? Through other bloggers' recommendations? Their sidebar links? Search engines? Through comments left on your blog? Something else?
Yes to recommendations and some sidebar links. Not search engines. I don't get many comments from new people, but that always gets me to take a look. In reality, most of my reads come from comments on other blogs, my sitemeter, and Coutorture.
-- When you leave a comment, do you frequently return to that post to check for the author's response?
-- What types of situations might cause you to stop reading a blog that you once enjoyed?
Posts too long. I also have a hard time with blogs that take a long time to load. (I have an "itty-bitty straw". Actually, it's more like a stir stick.)
-- How much personal privacy do you try to maintain when posting on your own blog? Everything that might identify you to a friend or neighbor? Only demographic data? Only children's information? Something else?
I have never said exactly where I live or my children's names, nor have I shown my face. But that's mostly because I have a goofy smile in pictures.
-- What are your thoughts about encouraging offline friends to read your blog?
I try not to mention it. Nevertheless, it is disappointing that more of my friends aren't interested. Hey, people, THIS is the real me.
Now, they were all fascinating questions but, because I don't believe in huge posts, posting on the weekends, or blogging much about blogging (I heard it is somehow not good form), you can read the rest of them here. I am, of course, interested in YOUR thoughts.
