Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion post here on Rainy Day Ramblings where I discuss a wide range of topics from books to blogging. Weigh in and join the conversation by adding your thoughts in the comments. If you want to do your own post, grab the question and answer it on your blog.
What type of posts do you enjoy reading most on blogs?
After blogging and reading blogs for going on five years now, I have learned that there are posts that I enjoy reading (and writing) and ones I can do without. This week, I am going to focus on the posts I love seeing on all of your blogs.
Thoughtful Reviews: Considering that most of the blogs I read are book blogs, I enjoy reading well written reviews that provide me insight into a book. I like reviews that share reasons why I would enjoy the book, as well as reasons why the book not work for me. I love seeing all the different creative review styles out there. I especially appreciate that I have found so many great reads based on reviewer recommendations, and that I have been saved a time or two from a read that would probably not work for me. I love reading all of your thoughts on books you have read.
Discussion Posts: Tell Me Something Tuesday here on my blog, tends to be the post I get the most comments on every week. I think many of you, like me, enjoy a good, healthy discussion. I love reading all the different posts out there on the blogosphere where you all share your opinions on a wide range of topics. Some are informative while others are funny. I always like seeing the comments and the discussion these type of posts generate. I like all the different questions you all pose, and the comments they generate.
Upcoming Books: Every week, I put together the Friday Forecast, a post where I share upcoming books releases. I am not the only one who does this type of post. There are many blogs that share exciting books on the horizon. I also enjoy reading Waiting on Wednesday posts, so I can see books that everyone is excited to read in the future.
Blogging Tips: As a new blogger, I always appreciated when established bloggers shared their insight and wisdom. I still am learning, as we all are, so I like when a blogger takes the time to do a post on how to do stuff as there is always something new to learn. Any helpful information I can glean that will provide me with tips, tools and shortcuts to make blogging faster and easier is always welcome.
Personal Posts: When you continually visit a blog, you establish a relationship with a blogger. I always like when a blogger takes the time to do a post that shares a bit about the blogger behind the blog. Whether it be a post on all the fun crafty stuff you are making, or the charities you help, recipes you love or fun stuff you are doing in your personal life. I like when I get to know my fellow bloggers better. I think when you get to know your fellow bloggers better it makes us all a bit closer.
Giveaways: What can I say? I love to win stuff so I am always up for entering a good giveaway.
Funny Stuff: Sometimes the world can be a dark place, so I always appreciate when someone takes the time to put together a post that makes me laugh. I think a bit of positivity goes a long way, and I know that when I read fun posts that make me smile, my day is a bit better.
These are a few of the posts that I enjoy reading the most when I visit blogs. What about you all, what kind of posts do you like to read?
