What Makes a Blog Great?

What do you think makes a great blog? 

I started reading blogs years ago, and started (sort of) blogging myself shortly after that. I never really felt like I got the hang of it, you know? My family read my blog, and I made a couple of connections with some fabulous ladies I didn't know, but I never really felt like "a blogger". So when I decided to take it up again, and take it more seriously, I started paying attention to what I thought made a blog great. There are several blogs that I have followed for several years, so I went to those first.

The first, and most obvious thing they all have in common is great photography. Every blog that I follow, outside of friends and family, has great pictures to look at.

Hmmm. Gotta work on that one.

The other thing I noticed is that they seem to include some posts about daily life, but they also include deeper subjects. There are posts that make me evaluate myself and who I am, and want to be. They include recipes, decorating ideas, party ideas, all kinds of topics that give me ideas for my own family. I love that. I can pull off lots of stuff, but I don't have whatever it is that gives me the ideas in the first place. I get all of my ideas from blogs and Pinterest. Thank goodness for creative people!

So here I go again. Blogging. I don't know what I'll talk about. A little of everything, I suppose. Mom stuff, because that's what I know. Cooking, laundry, school stuff, church stuff, house stuff, crafty stuff, whatever's happening around here.

Thanks for reading, and we'll see what happens!
