It’s the first of the month. That means it’s time to sneak out into the blogosphere’s pasture and do a little blogtipping!
I’ve been a lurking subscriber at Dwayne Melancon‘s blog, Genuine Curiosity because, well – I was genuinely curious about what he had to say. I’ve been regularly rewarded with a good read. Three things I like about Dwayne’s blog:
- There’s a great mix of those little lessons in life. Dwayne pays attention to the details – whether it’s things to do in the middle seat on the airplane to directing people’s attention to the etiquette of figuring out how to turn off the ringer on your cell phone.
- Dwayne has a wonderful sense of humor that comes out in his post titles and his writing. I read a lot of blogs that have great content, but they’re a bit – can I be honest about this? – boring in writing style. Dwayne regularly makes me chuckle while giving me good content. I appreciate that.
- This is totally a personal preference, but I like the way Dwayne adds visual touches with photography. It’s the way I like to do my own blog and I know that it takes some time, effort and thought to find just the right photo or graphic to compliment the post. I know a lot of readers probably don’t care – but Dwayne, I for one appreciate the extra-mile effort.
One suggestion I would make:
- What can I say? I want more! I talk to other bloggers about the optimum frequency of posts and I know there are different thoughts based on the realities of time and life circumstances. Dwayne seems to average a post or two a week. He’s a great writer and I think it would be a good challenge for him, and a welcome addition for his readers, to try to write 2-3 posts per week.
Thanks for writing a great blog, Dwayne!
