Great or Greatest?

What makes a blog great? What makes you follow a blog or “like” a post?

There are so many great blogs out there and I discover a new one to follow almost daily. The WordPress Freshly Pressed portal is usually where I would be trawling around for new and interesting posts. Further, as a rule, I follow back anyone who follows me.

Even though I follow a lot of blogs, getting a “like” goes a bit deeper than that. For me to “like” a post, it would have to be something that absolutely speaks to my soul; something that really gets through all the mental clutter of a busy day and makes me think. A re-post goes even deeper! You know that feeling when you hear a song, watch a movie or read a post that sends the goose-pimples racing up and down your body? Better yet, when you read a post and by the time you are done you do the annoyed look around the office to see who is watching as you wipe away the tears? That’s a re-post right there!

Thank you to all the wonderful members of the WordPress family for inspiring me everyday, for making me think, for lifting my spirit, for bringing back to earth, for making me cry! I love reading your words every day!
