It’s time to participate in the April A-Z Blog Challenge. I will be blogging every day in April, with Sunday’s off.
The topic for each day will begin with the designated letter of the alphabet.
This Friday’s letter is V for Virtual Visitor.
I have visited about 200 new blogs since I started the A-Z challenge. My goal is continue to sample the work of as many of the participants as I can, long after I write my last post. So far, I am struck by the wide variety of topics and writing styles.
My strategy for selecting which blogs to initially read was to choose blogs in the categories MI (miscellaneous) and PR (personal). Those are the type of posts I am most interested in.
As I was going through the list, I found that I was also attracted by catchy titles.
My decision to follow a new blogger and become a long term visitor is based on how much of the author’s personality shows through his or her posts. I imagine what it would be like to have a real conversation with the writer. I wonder if we would be friends in the real world?
If the blogger engages me with humor and wit, manages to tug at my heart strings, piques my curiosity, or expands my horizons a little more, then I will surely add their blog to my reading list.
As I said I am still in the process of visiting new blogs and I must say I am enjoying it as much as writing my own posts.
Have you been a virtual visitor during this challenge? What makes you want to return to a blog?
