How To Catch People's Eye With You Blog

Blogging is a passion of mine, and it is something that I love to do. I love writing posts and sharing them with anyone who fancies a little read. As a blogger I think it is fun to read other people's blogs and interact with them. In this post I thought it would be good to share with you a few things that attract me to a person's blog, and stick around and check it out.

On a blog, the first thing that catches my attention is the blog header. I like reading various blog types, and this means that different blog types will have a different style to it. When someone has a bright header, with a bold font I tend to take more notice. Simple graphics also catch my eye, as does a pop of brightness and colour! A bold and bright header will catch my eye and make me want to stick around the blog. A blog header doesn't need to be absolutely stunning to be adorable, just add your own style to it. You have a personality, show it!

The layout of a blog is a factor that I notice when I'm having a look through a person's blog. If the blog is nice and organised and spaced well, there is a better chance of me clicking the posts. If the text is well aligned and the spacing is good then the post flows a lot better and is more enjoyable to read. It also keeps the blog look clean and crisp.

I love looking at images on people's blogs. Images add a lot of character to a post and make them interesting to read. I love reading reviews and hauls where there are swatches of the product, or images of what is in the post! The images size is a factor that makes a post well presents too, as having images that are a good size, and well fitted to the text makes a post look perfect. As a blogger I know how bipolar the weather can be, and how much of a pain in the ass getting good natural light (#bloggerproblems) for image can be, but Blogger's find a way to get that image! Bloggers know how extort the best possible natural light and angles of an image, so work that camera! If blogging has taught me anything, it's that being a blogger you learn you can bring out the best natural lighting in any case and make any product look hella good!

I love to read blog's where the blogger has their own unique writing style. I read pretty much any kind of post, and I love it when a blogger write's their content in a way which feels as though they are taking to you. Content is much more engaging when you feel like the writer really  has a passion for their topic. If I'm reading a review of something, it's because I want to know what it was like for the person using it! If I wanted standard basic information about something, I would read the product description! If you love something, tell the reader why! If it was crap, then say why and what can be improved! Blogger's have amazing personalities and are some of the funniest people I know, so show that in your work!

Those are a few little things that attract me to a blog, there are lots of factors that go into it but if these are on point I will probably stick around and read or follow your blog!
