Help me learn

What makes a blog great? What makes you follow a blog or “Like” a post?

Honesty. Knowledge. Common sense. Good writing. Sense of Humor. The artistic point of view in photo blogs.

I love blogs that help me learn something about life, about other people’s culture and experiences. I enjoy reading so if they give me a good reading, I like it and follow. I usually don’t look at the number of followers, just decide if I like it or not. I think blogging is not a popularity contest. I love the interaction among bloggers. I like comments.

I think great blogs are blogs by people writing for the pleasure of writing or simply for the shake of sharing an experience.

It’s impossible to follow all the great blogs out there so I pick  what I find in places like this daily prompt space and searching among the ones about topics of my interest.
