Why do you visit a particular blog?

I was having a discussion with Lee Ann this morning about why people are attracted to certain blogs.  Her feeling is that blog surfing is relaxing and is a form of escape.  She loves the beautiful photographs, the music at times, and the indulgent feelings she gets when visiting her favorites.  I on the other hand, I have a completely different take on why I follow blogs.  To me it is more of a learning experieince.  I tend to visit a blog more often if it gives me a "how to" once in a while.  I am also attracted to blogs that get the creative side of my brain working.  I love to see new ways to turn nothing into something.  Before and after photos probably impress me the most. 

Today, I posted a survey on the sidebar asking you to tell me what attracts you the most to a specific blog.  Please click on an answer and let me know what you think.  Or, if you have time I would love for you post a comment about what you think makes a blog attractive.  And remember the drawing.  If you post a comment you will be automatically entered in the March drawing for the oven key.

Fay Henry,
Every time I get back from a show I am so overwhelmed with ideas that I often spend days trying to figure out which projects I want to tackle next. Glad you liked the photos. I have entered you in the drawing. Good luck!

Hello, thanks for stopping at my blog, really interesting to discover yours. I'd love to take part in your poll, but we're only allowed one answer! I can have different reasons for following a blog - overall attractive presentation; amusing and well written text, great photos, fresh ideas, they're all important. Maybe it's easier to define why I wouldn't follow a blog!

Hi Sharon,
Yeah, it's a tough choice for some which is why I thought the poll might have some interesting results. Thank you for your comment. I have entered you in thr March Oven Key Giveaway.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Rory, and for leaving such a kind comment. Love the name "greentique" - looking forward to reading more in your blog...sounds like we're like minded. Be sure to check back to see the things I repurpose for my garden (I refuse to spend big bucks on new stuff!)
Oh, and I'd love to be entered in your giveaway for the neat oven key!
