"When reading a blog what is it people are looking for? Is it content? Is it the unique story a writer has to tell? Or, is it a combination of things?
Some people look for writing content. Others look for graphics and then some people like to go to blogs because, they can find their entertainment in video content.
For the most time, I look for combinations of things in a blog. Also this depends on the mood I am in. If the story is entertaining enough I will keep reading, if the video has a title I am attracted to I will finish watching it unless the content is just totally ugh. Graphics are great but graphics with a story to what I am looking at is even more fun.
Writers are in general unique by them self. Every writer has their own style when they write their own original content. Some writers make spelling mistakes, but do not let that keep you from reading their story. English might not be their first language but at least an attempt to give another person some entertainment was given.
On the end it is always the choice of the visitor. When they like your entertainment they will return. If a question is raised in a specific topic, more then likely visitors return just to see if there is an answer posted. So, no matter what is presented a great blog is great when the visitor likes it."
