Blogging Buddies – snap descisions

Last week your responses reminded me that there is definitely not a ‘one size fits all’ correct answer as to how to make a post interesting. One person liked people to leave a question at the end of each post whilst another specifically singled this out as something they didn’t like. I find this reassuring as some of it is down to personality. That takes some of the pressure off.

Earlier this week I thought about another factor related to this – how do you start your post off? I ask this because in my reader I only get a few sentences at the beginning of a post and, especially when I am looking for ‘new’ blogs (like I need anymore to read!) I do sometimes decide whether to continue reading based just on these brief snippets.

When I stopped to think about it I was quite upset with myself for being so superficial but I am sure that I am not the only one.

It gets even worse when you look on google. I put in ‘wire mesh jewellery WordPress’ to see what came up:

23 hours ago – I have been experimenting with wire mesh and making some different necklaces with it. 1. Simple celtic knot. 2. Netted Pearls 3. A Fair Trade 

That’s it. Would it make you want to read it? I guess it depends what you are looking for.
I have no magic answers to this except that I have been a bit more mindful as to how I start my posts off. I have been trying to cut the waffle and get to an interesting point very quickly.
What about you? Do you have any tips or suggestions that you use? Do please share.
