Shooting Thoughts: Let's Get Personal
I feel like the majority of people that read my blog (and have their own blog) focus on books or other forms of entertainment. Some of these blogs share some personal details about their life, some share a lot, and others just focus on the book/entertainment content.
Personally, I like learning about the blogger behind the blog but I understand why some people don't feel the need or are afraid to give out too much information. I probably wouldn't have shared as much when I first got started, but I've been doing this for awhile now and I've slowly gotten used to sharing stories or giving information about my real, everyday life.
What about you though? Do you think personal details are a no-no on your blog? Do you like learning about other people through their blogs? Do you ever follow "personal" or more real life blogs?
When it comes to the latter question, I do like blogs that focus a great deal on their life. They still might have reviews or other fun posts, but they also give you information about their everyday experiences. It's great to see how you might have things in common, as well as how you are different.
In honor of this whole idea I thought I would share just one of the more everyday blogs that I follow.
Krysten from Why Girls are Weird: She's a wife, a dog mom, a bookworm, and more. I love Krysten's blog because she talks about real life issues and topics but she also shares new products and book reviews here and there. It's a nice mix! Plus, every Friday, she posts the top 10 things that made her happy that week! Who doesn't like that?!
If you look at my blog list on the left hand side of this page, you are sure to find some other blogs similar to Krysten...or at least similar in the fact that they are more "personal."
So, please do share your thoughts on being personal on blogs! Don't forget the questions above if you need help generating a thought. :)
