Just curious to all those that either have a blog or people that follow a blog, what makes a good one? What do you like to hear about and why? Want to start one up but there are just so many out there, would like to get some ideas as to what people want or need :)
There is ours of course – the SororiTea Sisters! http://sororiteasisters.com
As far as what I like to read about, I like to read about tea. I like to learn things about tea that I didn’t know before, I also like to learn about new teas I’ve not tried before, and I like to read about teas that I have tried … to learn about other people’s opinions of a tea.
I follow both of you guys :) both fantastic blogs. Teatra.de is wonderful as well ,cant wait till more and more people check that out and maybe even buy some of my teas from there or directly from my site. So many avenues via the web it is amazing.
Some things I look for:
Dispelling tea myths
info about different types of tea
how to steep (or in the case of matcha “prepare”) different types of tea
teaware info/reviews (important since some teaware like yi xing is not nearly as easy for people to see in person before buying as the tea itself)
I blog at keenteathyme.blogspot.com, but I don’t usually do reviews there. I review here instead! Plus nobody beats the SororiTEA sisters on reviews, I don’t even want to try. :) On my blog I interview tea companies, research tea types (and will be including a “how to brew” guide in May), tea news, tea-related news, and more. I’m always up for suggestions on improving my blog too. :)
I blog at www.shadetreemate.com/blog
My blog entries have pretty much to do with Yerba Mate & Guayusa happenings. Reviews, good links, news, interviews, and sometimes the business side. Pretty much anything intriguing on the yerba mate front is what I go for.
I have noticed my blog entries to be pretty hit or miss, i would love feedback.
The blogs I read I enjoy for their information -steeping techniques or brands to try, ideas on how to fit tea into your day. With my blog, I try to do the same, but I post what I like without trying to fit any particular audience. I’ve found that my posts gravitate toward teaware, greens, and puehrs.
Thanks everyone, I love how every blog is a little different, you can get so much info so many opinions so many ideas with eachone :) Yours are all amazing :) I have looked at them all and I liek them all for individual reasons. Thanks
