A few months ago, I published 30 Things I Absolutely HATE About Your Blog — since then I have been thinking to come up with its reverse topic as well. That is, I wanted to publish a list of 30 things that I LOVE about a blog. Once again, it’s just my personal view and hence there’s a good chance that you would disagree with me — with some or all of them. :D And I also tried to cite other blogs and blog posts as examples for “things” wherever it’s possible. Also, when I published the previous list, none of the “things” were actually technical in nature but on this list there are so many technical “things” that are not easily fixable (if it’s a problem). However, it doesn’t really mean that I absolutely hate your blog. It’s just a perspective and I could be totally wrong. 1.

Whenever I visit a blog that I haven’t come across before, I try to find out how different it is from others or what makes it interesting. Not just that. I also notice things that I don’t like in it. Your blog might be very popular. But it wouldn’t stop me from finding things I don’t like. I can’t stop myself from doing it. Over the past few months I started curating such a list in my Evernote and I’m sharing it here. And I believe most of them can be fixed (if you think it must be fixed) as none of them is technical in nature (if it’s a technical problem then it’s you who created it).
