What makes a good blog post?

I’ve been wondering about this as I’ve watched the traffic numbers for this blog ebb and flow.  I really am not greatly concerned with traffic as this blog serves as much as a place where I keep notes on things I am interested in.  However, visiting the blogs of modelers like Jeff “Inch High” Groves, Jim “Cranky Canuck” Bates and Tommy Thomason, I realize that my stuff just doesn’t have the same quality.

Each of those blogs, and many others are different in their own way, but all have a mark of quality.  They make me muse on what makes a good (modeling related) blog post.  One thing these sites all do is make use of photos.  I don’t do that enough.  Also, all of these sites go deep on history in many of their posts.  Those are some of the best posts.  I’d like to find more time to devote to posts like that, but until I get better organized, I don’t know if that will be possible.

  1. just discovered your blog via Jeff’s page. Keep doing what you do – you post a lot of very interesting stuff. And you post, that’s important in my book. I don’t post often enough ..and that bugs me a lot..

  2. Thanks. Jeff’s blog is what I aspire to be plus the link farming that I do now.
