15 Day Book Blogger Challenge~Day 8 (Things that appeal to me on blogs)

Today is my birthday! :D I turned 17 today. Today is also Day 8 of the Book Blogger Challenge hosted by April of Good Books & Good Wine!

Write 15 bullet points of things that appeal to you on blogs!
  • A good layout. It's more likely that I'd read a blog that is pretty than one that is not.
  • An easy-to-read font. I'd prefer black over white because that's easy on the eyes. Also, the font shouldn't be too big or too small.
  • The blog should load quickly. If there are too many widgets then it'll take too much time to load and then I lose my patience.
  • I love it when the blog posts have a 'casual' tone to them. I don't like to read "professional" posts. It's more fun reading someone fan-girl or rage over something.
  • I'd like the person to have an 'About Me' page. I almost always read the About Me when I visit a new blog.
  • Bad grammar and spelling really turns me off. If there are only a little slips then I'm fine with it but if all the posts are filled with mistakes then I'd probably not read the blog.
  • I like it when a blogger rates books. It gives me a quick over-view of whether they liked it or not.
  • The blog should be easy to follow. If I don't find a follow button easily, it's more than likely I won't follow the blog.
  • I hate CAPTCHA! I wouldn't comment if your blog has CAPTCHA 'cause honestly, it's just too hard to read that and I'd probably then waste 15 minutes trying to get it right.
  • I really don't like auto-play music or noise on blogs. If you want to put music, then please don't put it on auto-play. Let the visitor decide if they want to listen to music or not.
  • I love reading personal and discussion posts
  • I love it when book bloggers post something besides books. I know it's a book blog, but it's nice to see what else they like besides books.
  • I love it when bloggers use GIFs! I love GIFs! They're so much fun!
  • I love love love character interviews! They're so much fun to read!
  • I like it when people do Top-Tens and 'best' or 'worst' lists!
So, what appeals to you on blogs?


  1. I actually have never had character interviews on my blog. I've seen them around but now I'm really intersted to go explore for more lol
    Great post!

  2. Happy Birthday! :D

    This is a great list of what you like on blogs- I agree with all of them! And I'm realizing lately that I might enjoy reading personal or discussion posts more than book reviews sometimes which just seems like a betrayal to my beloved books. :)

    1. Thank you! :D

      And I'm the same! I sometimes too enjoy personal and discussion posts more than reviews. It kinda makes me feel guilty. :P

      Well, thanks for visiting and commenting! :D

  3. Hira I like all of your points apart from the GIF's, I haven't gotten into the GIF's as yet :(
