What makes a blog popular? I’m sure you who write and read blogs like to know.
I am looking for blogs that are good read. I browsed some top blogs. And I wonder how come some of the popular blogs or the ones that get traffic and followers do not have much content value. Some blogs sound like PR machine. Events and product endorsement clutter in their blogs. There’s no problem with that. It’s just that some bloggers write like they’re writing a press release with an “I” rather than a simple sincere blog. Some blogs are popular because they are owned by popular people. Some blogs have lots of followers because they know SEO tricks and whereabouts of the internet. But when you try to examine the content, nothing is spectacular, just an ordinary diary. But there are also popular bloggers who really make interesting and useful posts. These bloggers have their own niche and regularly updates their blogs. Here are some of them.
This food blog is owned by Erwan Heusaff, who is popularly known as Anne Curtis’ boyfriend. I used to think that this guy is so lucky to have Anne Curtis as his girlfriend. But after reading his blog, I said, “Anne Curtis is a very lucky girl.” I followed his blog as soon as I decided to trim down some weight and moved to healthy living. His blog is one of the best food blogs I stumbled upon. Unlike other food bloggers who write about restaurant reviews, he encourages his readers to prepare their meals. He is really good example for healthy lifestyle. His blog has recipes of healthy food and how-to-do videos.
Anna Oposa is an environmentalist and a writer. I enjoy reading her blog because I like how she writes. She has wit and sense of humor that even if she talks about serious environmental concerns, she does not sound boring. She generously share her life and her aspirations in her blog. Her blog has so much life, passion, and positive vibes.
Fashion sense means sense of sight. In terms of fashion blog, it should be pleasing and easy on the eyes. After all, you are talking about appearance. This means that the layout, photography, text of your blog should give an overall pleasure to the reader. And I am not surprised Camille Co’s blog is one of the most visited blogs. Her photos are really eye candy that it’s so hard to believe that she does not have a professional photographer with her. Her driver or her mother is most likely her photographer. I also like her style. It’s so dainty, colorful, and glamorous.
I like reading this lifestyle blog because Jenni finds new and creative ways to make small family gatherings special. She writes down recipe of deserts and simple meals which are very useful for career women. Her family is fashionable and cultured. And it’s really good to know that no matter how modernized her family can be, they have a great bond.
