Hi Lucy! What about an easy way to search for posts? For example a search box or tah list?

Tracey Peach said...

I really enjoy finding out about the person behind the blog xxx

Lynn Fancy said...

What makes a great blog? Mmmmm It's a hard one! I read really varied blogs depending on if I am looking for views/opinions/reviews on a specific thing...

Great flow of content; not JUST reviews!

Spelling! Something that really gets my goat is apalin spellin' or txt spk arghhhhhh!

Great content, proof read - real life, there you go! You already do a grand job xx

You recently did a blog post about Juice Plus and it ave me a good insight into something because of how you had written it rather than me trawling through boring long winded stuff!

katie skeoch said...

I enjoy reading posts that a relevant, items that are useful in the home or make up being reviewed. I also like reading about bloggers entering and winning giveaways!

Jen Russon said...

I like variety! Being a mum, I'm interested in kiddie related things, bargains, advice & recipes! I hate it when a post is quite long winded, I think its just best to get straight to the point. Having a look round your blog, I think your doing a great job!

lisa marie smith said...

I like your quirkyness (yes that is a word ;) ) .You can tell your an hinest blogge rin the way you come accross

Heather Haigh said...

A genuine enthusiasm and passion for what a blogger writes about is probably the main thing, though of course not all subjects will appeal to all readers. I have fairly eclectic interests but love your quirky style. i often read blogs and don't comment due to shyness, something I'm working on since starting to blog a little myself and understanding how nice it is to read them. But I have looked in quite a bit before and think you write well and it comes across as very genuine. I'm never going to read every single article on any blog and there are so many parenting blogs it's a very difficult area to stand out in but your writing style is original which is great.

The main thing that puts me off a blog is if it is hard to navigate - some bloggers seem to go crazy on the artwork and badges so their pages look really full and colourful - but you can't find anything. Yours is laid out so I know where to look. Hurray!

Gail Bennett said...

I just love reading what different people are up to and experiencing. Reviews are always good too :-)

Anonymous said...

blogs that are regularly updated with relevant items are always worth return visits and the ones that do rafflecopter with 20 requests for a pize generally don't get returned to x

Judith Luscombe said...

I like to read about moneysaving ideas, whether by food/shopping/insurances/holiday bargains any ideas to get things cheaper. Nowadays we need all the help we can get as we are all struggling to live.

Bruce Kennedy said...

I like reviews of products best. Keep it simple too - hate blogs full of fancy stuff and pictures of offspring! Nice pics of food always enticing too :-)

Cat Williams said...

I love lots of pictures, lots of personal posts and not too much sponsored stuff :)

Adeinne said...

I enjoy reading product reviews and about what happens in other peoples days

mary heald said...

Places to go and people to see seem like a safe bet. I loved your 'A secret agent saves the day ' blog. However it is a genre of writing that, for me is in its infancy and I am enjoying the varied pieces that I find to read.

Jessica Wilde said...

I love to read reviews on blogs - it helps me decide what products are worth buying!

Lisa Everaert said...

Variety, no one likes to read the same repetitive subjects. Not that 1 thing is a bad thing, just a nice mix up of subjects helps to draw people in xx

Dean Willoughby said...

I love blogs that are true to life and have a natural flow from the blogger. Just like a great comedian pulls on everyday life scenarios that get great laughs. Not just providing a technical view of the item under discussion but a generalized overview for even laymen to understand.

Diane Wood said...

I'm with you on the spelling!!

Diane Wood said...

Articles that interest me - not very helpful, I know but I can't think what! Places you've been, things you've done, funny anecdotes but always, always spellcheck/grammar check your posts - you have the internet at your fingertips, use it!

@chris_woodgate said...

maybe a search button so we can peruse the bog better

Robyn Logan Clarke said...

I like being nosey, I like an insight in other peoples lifes and how they do things.

Rebecca Smith said...

I love variety and would like to see a searchbox x

I mainly like to read reviews of products that I am interested in. Its good to get an honest account!

downingarms said...

I'm trying to upgrade my cooking from very basic to something more reasonable and I've picked up a lot of useful tips from blogs

Anonymous said...

I like to learn about reviews AND the person who writes the blog - write ups and photos, lots of variation and a competition or two !

Mark Witherington said...

I love the different viewpoints and the personal touch

Karen said...

I like lots of photos!

Anonymous said...

More cooking tips are always welcome!

Natasha Mairs said...

a search box is always useful. And I like to see some old posts along the side bar. or also include some related post at the bottom of each blog post.

Anonymous said...

I love blogs that give frank, honest reviews but I also reviews products which are affordable and accessible. I have seen some that review products that are so expensive!!

Kay leigh said...

i love comps and recipes

kay panayi

Claire Appleton said...

A good search tool to find blog subjects easily would be fab! :)

Kiran Parry said...

I like reading reviews on films and like the food blogs because they have some excellent recipes. Most blogs I come across are good because they have interesting stories or reviews but I think film blogs, tech blogs and food blogs I enjoy viewing the most.

Barbara Handley said...

I like to hear that other families go through the same problems and have to make the same decisions through life. I also like reviews which help you decide whether or not to buy something so sometimes helping you save money.

Anonymous said...

I find other peoples blogs interesting

debbie godbolt said...

hi i enjoy reading reviews of products, lots of competitions, i love reading about other peoples lives with pics aswell

Charley Foy said...

I think a good blog has to have variety. So if you're primarily a review blog, or a fashion blog, or a food blog, that is perfectly fine but mix things up with personal posts, giveaways, funny posts, just to keep things fresh :)

Justine Meyer said...

I am just nosey and like to see what like minded people get up to in every day life.

kelly lawton said...

Reviews on fave things not just stuff bloggers review cause they get it free if you know what I mean, competitions, family outings and just general updates! maybe weightloss ideas and journeys if you are trying to lose weight. x

Jade Wimsey said...

I love that blogs aren't all advertorial like magazines seem to be, I love real life opinions! x

Hilda Hazel Wright said...

I think for me the answer is quite random, just stumbling across something interesting at the right time! Obviously I like competitions, but I like travel, days out, holidays, good photos! Sometimes recipes catch my eye! I think good presentation and well written blogs are more eye catching so although thats not about the content as such I think its important.

kris said...

lots of variety

Jenifer - Kitsch N Sync said...

I'm a nosey moo, so I like reviews or hauls - I love lifestyle posts as well, especially if the blog owners not from my town...I love to learn about new places to visit and restaurants to try! :)

Jen xx

laura miller said...

great blogs love to read and love new layouts

Hayley Evans said...

I love it when someone talks about something I thought might just concern or happen to me. It's great to hear I am not alone and to get another opinion 😊

Gems - Fashion Well Done said...

As someone who finds it difficult to make friends thanks to a bout of depression, blogs help me to feel less alone and to make a whole new set of friends I know I can talk too.

JC Cross-Jones said...

I like learning about other peoples lives, and I like reviews! Hearing general public reviews are so important, rather than just review sites which can be manipulated!

laura jayne bates said...

i love reading blogs on what people have been up to and reviews just awkward locating then some times

Tracey Anne Berry said...

Passion about their blog readers, keeping in constant contact even if it's just to say hi or tell us about what an ordeal it was shopping in Tesco or a fab new haircut, tell us about people/companies/local businesses/friends who go above & beyond. Basically, tell us about you and your experiences so we can interact even if it's something we may not agree on, allow conversation & debate, ideas & suggestions about blog content - recipes, day outs, bargains, comps, gadgets, highlights, the lows and of course all the highs of life. Sorry to go on & on but it's the interaction I love through blogs. Keep doing what your doing hun! Be good, be happy & be very, very lucky xx

Richard Randall said...

I'm a blogger and love other blogs for the random stuff you find on them.

emmaspeers said...

I would love to see parents becoming involved more - different opinions of people being taken into account for different topics, different experiences etc. So for example peoples experiences advantages and disadvantages for breastfeeding, or special needs, behavioural problems, children first starting school, bullying etc - everyday problems which a lot of parents face.

sally johnston said...

Love the money saving tips and ideas, easy to navigate and there's a bit of everything for everyone x

Helen said...

I do like every day stuff....a touch of humour....no preaching....that really puts me off

So thrilled to find your fab blog!!!!!! xx

Stralisemiai said...

Evening Lucy - I love reading blogs for various reasons, but mostly because of quirky - honest opinions and comments.
I have actually searched for things to make and do - such as "100 uses for toilet roll tubes / uses for jam jars" and ended up discovering some fantastic family blogs - some American and some from the UK.
I prefer family based blogs / cooking / savvy spending / saving type ones - rather than fashion or cosmetic focused ones, simply because my heart lies with my family, and make up and fashion takes a large back bench to family activities that take precedence.

Worth mentioning though - for what its worth, my hubby also reads blogs - online game ones, tech reviews, and some funny football type ones.
We have discussed the rise of blogs over the years - rather than websites, and we agree it really gives individuals a louder voice compared to being a general contributor on a forum.

alison broadhurst said...

I like to see random things and money saving ideas xx

Lynne O'Connor said...

Regular updates, personal ramblings and please spell check for typos (spotted 2 in the rafflecopter alone)

glennamy said...

I like to see reviews on techie stuff that I do not always get or understand...

Ali Johnson said...

I love reading varied blogs. Not just reviews, but recipe suggestions & general advice about things you've discovered.

Christine Taylor said...

Jane said...

I agree with a lot of the previous comments - a search bar is definitely something I look for in blogs (especially as someone who does a lot of work with bloggers for a job)!

stacy sorrell said...

my first comment was that i couldnt see the feed on the right had side (the GFC etc) i kept refreshing but it still wasnt having any of it. I commented then when it refreshed it was fine. must be my ancient laptop. i was reading the above comments, and i think a search bar would be great. xxxx (copying this incase it refreshes correctly, ill comment again)


figured it out, there is a 'view web version' at the bottom..... silly me

JO BRYAN said...

I am a bit of a blog addict, I love reviews, seeing peoples family life, what they eat, wear, a snoop round their homes. Where they go etc. So any of those would be fab. I love reading a rant and I also love hearing positive thoughts. So keep it up, yours is great, been following a while and you are fab!!

JO BRYAN said...

You missed the full stop after the bracket! ;)

blue10 said...

I enjoy reading blogs which are constantly updated with interesting information. Those which are upbeat are more interesting to me. Enjoying reading your blog.

LauraF said...

I like REAL reviews - where negatives as well as positives are mentioned. I like parenting and a bit of a nosey. i do like rafflecopter giveaways and usually have a go if I like the prize.

Solange said...

More reviews and competitions

prwilson said...

I like that it's real people talking about real things that are happening in their lives. Lots of the internet is PR sheen, which gets a bit wearing.

christy beckett said...

I would love to see a search box so I could search for a specific subject easily. I love reviews especially if they are honest. Money saving ideas are always a big hit in my family x

james wright said...

what makes a great blog? the person behind the blog is most important to me,and how well a blog/review is wrote thank you

Kate Cunningham said...

I like reading little snippets about real life and how people feel about things especially relating to family and education. I have also been fortunate to have discovered lots of little craft businesses and bought lovely gifts that were just that bit different to those in the shops. Keep blogging ladies. I may join you one day - when I retire and have more time!

YOLANDA DAVIS said...

I like hearing about the blogger's day to day coming's and goings, reviews on thing we all use and or need and giveaway's.

Carolin said...

I enjoy comps and also reviews of items I can make use of :)

GW78 said...

I love reading product reviews, recipes (I get loads of ideas!) & random tips (beauty/DIY anything really!). I also enjoy holiday/travel blogs & the photos that go with them :)

Jane Willis said...

I like to read blogs of all kinds but what keeps me coming back to the same ones again and again is the personal touch. Whether the post is a review, a chatty post, an informative one, a recipe or a competition, I like to see the personality of the blogger coming through.

christine shelley said...

Blogs about learning disabilities, their education and personal experiences interest me

Faye Huntington said...

I think your blog is fab! Although, if I were to add one suggestion, it'd be to join Bloglovin' as a lot of blogs seem to benefit from that (well, my friend does anyway lol)! :) thanks for the comp!! Faye xx

Jaycee said...

I love money saving tips in blogs. We have all had to do more budgeting so an ways of saving money is always interesting.

vanessa King said...

I'm a freebie girl so competitions and freebie roundups are what I like to see in blogs :)

rachael jones said...

humour without a little humour blogs can be boring :)

Samantha Fernley said...

I love blogs with lots of photos and reports on days out. I also love haul type posts.

Chrissie Curtis said...

I love the blog - I would love to see some summer holiday suggestions for entertaining kids. It would be even better if you had any free suggestions. Maybe some more about you in a heading section. All in all its already great to be honest.

spinefarm said...

Great giveaway and nice blog. Good blog needs to be simple and funny.

Snorkie said...

I really like quirky posts, something to laugh about.

Lee Vanpopple said...

Id like to see more videos thats one thing most blogs dont have.

I like reading blogs because there is such a wide variety of opinions, recipes, creative and amusing stuff.

Steph Campbell said...

i love reviews. they give true readings of something

Gillian Holmes said...

I love honest reviews

Joanne Blunt said...

I love lots of photos to break up text. I really struggle with large blocks of texts and tend to lose interest. I always search blogs for reviews of things I want to buy as I find most bloggers are honest. Spelling and grammar are also quite important to me when reading written text.

Ellen Stafford said...

I love looking at pictures and reading about your family and reviews and giveaways. It's a great blog.

Wendy Tolhurst said...

I enjoy reading blogs because I like reading about how different people manage daily challenges. I also like reading about other people's opinions on different things, such as places to visit, things people have purchased etc. I also enjoy some of the giveaways :-)

Kim Neville said...

I like reading blogs that have a bit of everything, reviews on different products
