A couple weeks ago I posted about blog posts I don't love. But it didn't feel right to leave off so negative! I have met some wonderful bloggers out there, and wanted to share some love! So here are five kinds of posts I love love love to read. :)
ONE. Your life experience. I love reading about your unique adventures and experiences and qualities. Sometimes, these posts fall into categories of Things I'll Never Go Through or Things I am Not, but sometimes they are things I may one day face and isn't it cool to know how someone else has accomplished/handled/managed (survived) it? And isn't it cool, in this world where I will only ever get to be me to learn about how other people are and how they see the world? I think so. Highly recommended for this category of loves: Yes and Yes's True Story series.
TWO. Posts that build me up and make me feel good about myself. Does this really need any explanation? Okay, I'll explain anyway: I am bad at comparing myself to others. But finding a post that says, Hey. You're doing this right and you're awesome? That is a magical, wonderful moment and can make me smile all day. Examples here and here. And here and here. And one more really great one here.
THREE. Fun relationship stories. I love hearing about your weird dad or they ways your boyfriend is goofy. LOVE IT. I don't care who the human in your life you're talking about is. I just love hearing about how people relate to each other. Fun posts here and here.
FOUR. Running and work out posts. I especially love when they're about things I haven't done yet, like marathon-ing, this crazy workout Amy was brave enough to try, and triathlons, which I idly dream of doing someday.
FIVE. The random, the silly, the everyday. Similar to the first category, but less pressure -- I love to just read about the every day lives of all my blog friends. Because I will never live your life, but I can still learn about another human's experience and perspective through this thing we call blogging, and that's pretty cool.
What do you all love to read?
