What I like about your blog

   Oftentimes, I see blogs with very good content, but something is missing..something that doesn’t let the blog be perfect.So I’ve made a list of things that I like in other people’s blogs.


      1.Calm colors

I think it’s super important to keep reader’s eyes relaxed and comfortable.Frankly, I don’t like blogs with WHITE background and don’t understand why the author chose white as the main color.We see that white background everywhere –  in books, news, articles on the internet – because it’s classic.But blog is something not so official, more personal – that’s why I prefer seeing dark pastel tones in blogs 

      2.Font

The font SIZE, to be exact.I’ve seen a few blogs with very small font size, and it really annoys me! How am I supposed to like what you write if I’m not able to read it??๐Ÿ˜

     3.Necessary widgets

By ‘necessary widgets’ I mean menus.It’s always easier to navigate a blog if I see categories of posts (Health, cooking, awards etc) or archives.Ironically, I do not have any of them yet! Shame on me…๐Ÿ˜„I promise I’ll add them one day!

     4.Photos

Pictures and photos really attract me, as well as many other readers.They have to be eye-catching, making you want to open the post and read it.If you don’t know what picture to set as a featured image – just write the title of your post on a pastel background (a lot of apps have the function of writing on pictures, I personally use PicsArt) or choose a picture from Pinterest or Tumblr –  and voila – your picture is ready!


Don’t take these ‘rules’ very serious!๐Ÿ˜‰ If I really like your content – I will still click the “follow” button, even if you have small font size or a lack of photos.The tips I’ve written make a blog perfect, from my point of view ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thanks for reading my post! Tell me, what do YOU find attractive in a blog? What would you add to my list? Feel free to share by leaving a comment!

Types of FOLLOWERS

Good afternoon,ย lovelies! How was your day?๐Ÿ˜Š

During this weekend I’ve come across SO many cool blogs on WordPress! I’m very happy that now I’m a part of this huge blogger community too.I noticed that I’ve been feeling less lonely recently, and I think I owe it to YOU, my blogger friends!โค๏ธ When I hear that WordPress sound coming from my phone – I instantly light up with a smile!! What’s that? New follower? Someone liked my post? YAAAY!))๐ŸŽ‰

By the way, I reached 20 followers yesterday!ย Thisย number may seem very small to you, but for me, it’s a big achievement!))


So, today I decided to list types of followers that almost every blogger has.

1) The staunch follower

This one reads pretty much every post you publish very thoroughly, likes it and usually leaves a warm and supportive comment.I love these ones, who doesn’t?๐Ÿ˜„

2)ย The follower that doesn’t really FOLLOW my blog

They either don’t open WordPress whatsoever, or just read other blogs, but not mine.I don’t receive any likes, comments or even views from them.I don’t really understand why they clicked the Follow button in the first place if there’s no activity from them on my blog…

3)ย The insincere follower

They may like and comment your posts, but they never really read them! Why? Well, it’s simple – they want you to check out THEIR blog, in order to gain followers.The worst part is that you never know if their likes and warm comments are genuine or not, it’s really hard to distinguish them from the “staunch” ones.

4)ย Fake follower

I’ve got only one fake follower – my mom๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„ย She’s one of my email followers (I entered her email when I had NO followers, just to see that “1 follower” note in the right corner of the screen and make myself feel better) She never really reads my posts though – I usually translate them into Russian and then – read it to her out loud))


Now, tell me about YOUR followers? How many staunch ones do YOU have? I’m looking forward to your comments! Thanks for reading)
