The Art of Blog Part 2

Ok
Let me continue

The blogs i like:

Are warm and personal
Give me the feeling of being intimately involved in what the blogger is wanting or trying to say
Sometimes I feel like a voyeur....but I'm a voyeur who has been given explicit permission to take a look.... So i don't feel guilty about it...although there's a sneaky pleasure about looking in....
It's like looking into a diary or journal... into the personal and the private but with no obligation to be anything other than a looker (a voyeur)....
Of course I can choose to be more than a looker....i can offer 'response'.....i can comment....

The blogs i like:

Have a sensitivity to language
Are playful with words
Give true expression to an underlying feeling
Have an intention to reach out and make connection
Give me a sense of who the blogger is (or at least who their blog persona is)
Make me feel like i know or would like to know them better
Make me feel i found a friend already (even though they don't know me) (Yet)
Are raw with something 'living'...they say something about what it's like to be that life they live right now
Turn me on to want to know more, read more about them...i look forward to their next post like it were a long awaited letter through the post
Make me smile inwardly in a moment of self-recognition
Make me laugh at something i didn't yet know about myself
Can tell a story
Give something out that 'adds' rather than takes 'away' from life
So that i feel like i just enlarged my life...this person i read has made me bigger....

I really am just making this all up....right now....right off the top....

Post this one too
