It is truly amazing to me how many blogs exist out there in cyberspace. I guess it is because I work in the design field, but I am real particular when it comes to adding new blogs to the list I visit every day. One look at a new blog and I am either in or out. You certainly do not have to be a designer to have a great blog, but I swear I don't know what people are thinking sometimes when it comes to their blog design. You can't even READ some of them without squinting an inch from the screen or printing it out because there is too much going on for one little screen to handle. I mean shouldn't readability be something everyone should be striving for? You don't have to be a Web wizard anymore to put together a blog. God knows if I can do it anyone can! I feel sorry for the ones where you can tell someone put a lot of time and effort into it, but you seriously just can't read it. I guess it wouldn't be polite to leave a comment saying "I would love to come back and visit, but can you please get rid of the black type on the dark purple background."
What makes you put a blog on your favorites? What makes you NOT want to visit again?
(and please tell me if mine is causing anyone headaches and eye strain)
