While reading some random blogs, I noticed that the ones that I enjoyed most were those that chronicled daily mundane activities. So I either have a small mind or I am just a boring person, either way, I derive a sense of fulfillment or should I say refreshment, from a blogger detailing their morning ritual or blogging about a walk through the park. Weird, yes I know and offer no apologies.
It is interesting how a simple act such as the brushing of ones teeth, could be turned into something read with the anticipation of a kid opening the big present on Christmas morning. Sometimes it’s really not WHAT you write but HOW you write, that draws readers. Unfortunately, not everyone has the HOW but many have the WHAT. Some of the bloggers I follow have that ability to take the uninteresting and make it interesting.
There is nothing wrong with blogs on Technology, Health, Economy or News. I can and have found satisfaction when reading some of these. They each have their time and place. I tend to shy away from blogs that drop technical terms and big words like grenades in a war zone. Even though I am an information junkie of sorts and love technology as much as the other guy, there’s just something about a light blog about nothing that just grabs me. (Damn, maybe I am really small-minded…)
