I am sharing this post from last July. As a part of Fandango Friday Flashback
Rory has asked a set of questions on his blog;
24 Hour Blog Question Directory
The Resonation of Relatability?
How important to you is it for you to have a level of resonation or relatability to the blog and bloggers you read from weekly or does it not matter and you read purely for the escapism, learning or entertainment factor and so on?
Mostly the blogs I follow have to have a degree of relatability otherwise I don’t follow them. The thoughts and the content has to gel with me before I make visiting them a daily feature.
There are a few which are either hilarious or entertaining which also are on my reading list. Short stories, poems or funny anecdotes all to lighten up my day.
Do you like to balance your reading or focus on specific genres only?
I think my reading is pretty balanced. But I don’t go out of my way to include blogs which are totally opposite to my way of thinking. That would be just too much to swallow. But if a blogger that I follow has an opinion which is opposed to mine, I will not only read it but also try to look at things from their perspective.
Finally do you need to ‘get your blogger to get your blogger?’ or do you get the blogger anyway whatever?
This question seems to be a puzzle!
I get what a person is writing but do I completely get them?
Some I do because I’ve been following them for most of the time I have been blogging and there are some that are new and I don’t know them that well.
Reading and perusing a blog gives the ideal opportunity to know the person behind that writing.
