Why do you read blogs?
No, I really want to know. What are you looking for when you read a blog? News? Analysis? Enjoyment? Information? Research?
Think about the blogs you read. Do you read political blogs and special interest blogs? Do you expect your political blogs to cover only politics (or whatever the special interest is)? If a blog is primarily a "mommy blog" for example, do you skip the articles that cover the latest local election?
Do you comment when you read blogs?
Do you avoid really long posts or do you skim them? Do you click on the links?
Or do you prefer quick, headline type links without analysis?
Speaking of analysis...are many blogs just echo chambers of each other?
How do you find the blogs you read? How often do you check them?
Do you prefer pictures or not? Does it depend on the post?
Do you use a reader, like Google reader?
Go with me on this. I have a point.
Discuss. All thirty of you that are still here, that is.
