hi! the main thing that draws me to crafty blogs would have to be the authors style in their craft..if i love the look of their "thing" i usually come back regulary just to have a look or i subscribe thru bloglines ...inspiration is another HUGE thing i look for in crafty blogs.

..thanks for the chance!

I like visuals. I subscribe to most of my blogs (hundreds of them) through Google Reader and I scroll down through the new posts daily (a couple of hundred a day). I really nice pic will put the brakes on and I will read all about it. Sometimes a headline will stop me or keep me moving. For the most part, I love reading them all. Every one has so much to offer to crafting.

I joined the sisterhood of blogging stampers and I made some friends by leaving comments on their blogs when I find something that catches my eye on their blog. Try this one. http://stampinglinkstolove.blogspot.com/
Every day a team of us go through blog land and put links out there for others to scan and find what they want. Hope this helps.
Lovely blog candy.

I will keep coming back to a blog if I love their creativeness. I also look for inspiration with my own card making.

Thanks for the chance to win!

I come back when I see interesting projects... particularly when there is a tutorial. My favorite blogs are the ones that have lots of tutorials. I prefer the non-video tutorials because you can get a really good look at the project.

Oooohhhh I don't have this set, can I play? I'll link ya on my blog if you give me a chance!!! I love visuals too! Just give me some good eye candy and I am one happy gal!

Sheila D said...

I like your blog. I've put you in my Google reader. What keeps me coming back is the creativeness of the cards. I like lots of color. I'm not a scrapbooker so I mostly look for cards (Using the stamps I have is a plus). Keep up the good work.

Deborah said...

Congrats on your new blog! I look for creativity...and I LOVE tutorials showing me new ways to use old toys (lol)

Hi Joanne,

Congrats on starting a blog! What keeps me coming back to certain blogs: if I like the style of the projects, whether they have frequent/regular postings, and the style of writing. I'm not a big fan of 'cutesy'...you know, lots of 'LOL' and comments like that. But I can ignore 'cutesy' if the projects are good.

Congrats on your blog! What draws me back is the creativeness of the stamper and their style of stamping. Everybody has a different style, and that's ok. We just find one that fits our style. I also like the new techniques that many bloggers share via tutorials. That really helps. I also like seeing what's out there as far as new product finds and how to use them if they are a new tool. Thanks for the chance to win.

I love blog candy!!!!

Posting frequently will keep me tuning in, assuming I like the person's work to start with.

Congrats on your new blog! I like when people update on a regular basis. Not necessarily daily, but at least every couple of days or so. Good, clear pictures of your work is a plus, too!

Congratulations on your new blog. I enjoy seeing different ideas and samples on the blogs I visit. I find that I return again and again to those blogs that feature particular styles that I like. I have had my eye on that Wildflower set from Crafty Secrets for some time. It has so many possibilities. Thanks for the chance to win.

Greta Adams said...

congrats on the new blog...i followed the link from michelle's blog...

beautiful work...

mitchells2000 said...

I, too, found you from Michelle's blog. I love blogs for the inspiration, tutorials, and ideas that are "outside the box." I'm always looking for new things that I can do without having a lot of "stuff," since I don't have a lot of money to spend on embellishments, etc. I just love to see what others create! :-)

Pam said...

The one thing that I really enjoy on blogs is new creative card ideas. I love the inspiration this gives me. I just stumbled upon your blog and signed up to recieve emails. Love your blog!

Bunny B said...

Thanks for the chance to win :)

Heather said...

Thanks for the chance at the blog candy. What brings me back to a blog is personality, honesty and inspiration. I like to know the person not just their work. Have a great day!

Veronica said...

What a beautiful set! What brings me back to blogs are the card or other paper crafting projects. Also the blog needs to be user friendly and not overloaded with too much "stuff".

Jennifer (SCS: jennifer-g) said...

I like blogs with good photos, some tips/info here and there on how the projects were made, and I definitely gravitate towards specific stamping "styles". I have about 200 blogs on my Google Reader and when I find new ones I like, I add 'em in! I add at least 1 or 2 every week, sometimes more. Sometimes I find blogs that have been around FOREVER, but for whatever reason I never came across them. There's so much wonderful information and networking/sharing going on through blogging - it rocks!

I love these images, they are GORGEOUS, thanks for the chance!

MelissaS said...

What a great set! With so many blogs in my Reader, I find myself returning faithfully to those that are updated regulary, and those that have sketches and/or challenges. That really gets my thinking cap primed and ready to stamp! Thanks for sharing :)

PICTURES and more PICTURES!! Being new to stamping and making cards, I love to find tutorials with pictures. I also love your section "where my money goes". This section makes it easy for newbies to find stamps. You have wonderful examples:)

lorikind said...

Being new to this, tutorials and pictures are what attracts me to come back to a blog. I love the section where your money goes:) It makes it easy to find stamps for us newbies.
Thanks
