There are a few blogs out there that I really want to love. I want to love them because their blog designs are GORGEOUS and I want an excuse to visit it every day. Or I want to love them because everyone else loves them, and that gets me excited so I want to love them to. Or I want to love a blog because I adore the person behind it (maybe we’ve chatted on Twitter).
But sometimes, no matter how hard I try, I can’t bring myself to love said blog.
Sometimes it’s because we don’t read the same kinds of books. They read a lot of historical fiction, and I don’t. Or they read graphic novels and I don’t. You get the picture. Or sometimes it’s because they ONLY post reviews. Lately I’ve been avoiding blogs that only post review after review after review. In such mass quantities, they start to feel like memes (to me)—tiring and a bit repetitive. I get sick of them; I want variety. I look for a good mix of discussion posts and book reviews, and maybe a unique feature (or blogging tips or something!).
It really upsets me when I so desperately want to love and subscribe to a blog, but I just can’t click with it for one reason or another.
