- Beautiful photos. Whether there is an article attached to it or not, I always enjoy a beautiful photo. I don’t even care if the photo goes along with the theme of the article. Sometimes a nature scene will go with anything. I prefer nature scenes rather than of buildings and people, etc., but there are some exceptions: I enjoy photos of rare things, and ancient or historical things.
- Photos without writing on them. To me the look of the photo is ruined when there is writing on it—no matter how meaningful or truthful the message is. I would rather see the message or verse under the photo, so I can see the entire photo just as it would look for real.
- Short articles. If an article is over 500 words I may not bother to read it. I don’t always have the time—unless it is from someone that I know always writes good articles and will keep me interested.
- Blog posts with catchy, thoughtful titles. If a post has a title that makes me stop and think, I will usually read the article. If the title is interesting, usually the post will also be interesting.
- Short Poems that make me think and that teach truth. I especially enjoy poems that go along with a photo, in which they cleverly use a photo as a teaching tool or as a visual aid.
- Blog posts that tell personal stories, even the events of their day or week, with photos. Post’s like this are a great away to get to know people.
- Blog post that are heartfelt—how they have overcome some hardship. Reading these kinds of blogs may bring sadness at first, but they may also bring God’s grace. Of course, I especially enjoy reading the articles that I can identify with.
- Blog posts that are obviously written with thoughtful study and research. This is the kind of post I try to write, and so I appreciate it in others.
I thought of another point.
9. I prefer not more than one blog post per person per day. If a person I am following has three or four posts in my reader for the day, I don’t like that!
