a great blog is one that is entertaining, versatile (topic-wise), substantial and sensible, and is uncluttered (layout-wise, so that non-techie people like me can easily navigate through it). just like this, which i enjoy reading :)

Gracie said...

I think a great blog is one that you instantly want to subscribe to, check every day for an update or new blog post. Also simple in design/not too overdone, updated fairly regularly and has mixture of interesting topics. I love to see hauls, reviews, looks, random updates etc.

Gracie said...

Thank you very much Tanya Lou and goodluck on the contest! It's true! Those are exactly one of the things that I look for in blog. I often wish that I'm able to update my blogs more frequently.

for me a great blog is one that delivers honest opinion,and gives the viewers a chance to feel or experience what the blogger is trying to write on,even only by reading.mostly what readers find best in a blog is the bloggers interest his/her blog site,like giving feedbacks,showing pictures.=D..

Happy 1st blog anniversary!!!!

For me, good blog site has contents that's exciting to both the readers and the writer as well, and it must be able to connect with its readers...it's not necessarily need to have perfect grammar as long as its understandable, and the contents must be worth reading...lastly, I the most important thing is it must be able to inspire and when one reads the contents, it can make a gloomy day a bright happy one :D

Shen said...

a great blog is when the personality of the blogger shows instantly on his or her post... when you can say, "i know what she/he means..." or "wow.. i could use that." or "what a great post.." it's when a blog post is able to relate and inspire the reader to become something more than herself/himself. and found yourself looking for updates on his/her site.

a great blog should be like a friend you could go to for a quick fix of inspiration.

Happy blog birthday sis!! :) more blogging years ahead of us!!

Dana said...

Happy 1st B-day To u Gracie&ur amazing blog.^^ . . .
What makes a great blog is the sincerity to the readers ( updating often) sharing their helpful experiences also entertaining and keeping it simple at the same time. A blog is always successful when it draws the readers attention by interesting pictures and makes the reader involved in it.
It`s best when the reader can relate to the blog..and actually help them in real-life.

^^tankU fo the lovely contest.

HI Gracie! Happy blog anniversary!

For me a good blog is one that can entertain people who reads it..lay-out should be not too flashy... people can learn from the blog may it be from the bloggers experience or just simple reviews... it also should be fun and creative.. can cover various topics and leave the reader always looking forward to the next topic....

godbless!

btw, love your pics :)

kaige said...

a great blog is a blog that is updated regularly and has content that is engaging, interesting and informative. it doesn't hurt if it has nice pictures, too. :)

Monette said...

A great blog for me is the one that is always updated, like you don't have to wait for 2 weeks for the next entry. Also, it has to be informative, does not have too much unnecessary graphics and most of all must have promos and freebies once in a while! =)
Keep up the good work!

Hi! I got here from sis nikki's site. anyways, for me a great blog is one that captures the reader's interest. It is entertaining and at the same time informative. But most of all, I think a great blog bespeaks the author's true self, regardless if a lot of people read the blog, as long as s/he is able to express him/herself, opinions and what have you. Personally, I find a blog interesting if the author speaks from his/her heart, like you feel that you personally know the blogger because you get to learn his/her interests, passion, etc. Well i think that's what makes a great blog, bloggers being able to connect to other fellow bloggers. :D

Steph said...

oh and btw, HAPPY FIRST BLOG ANNIVERSARY! :D

~ turquoise ~ said...

what makes a good blog site? i think a great blog is a blog that can relate your readers to you, make them know you better and who knows you and them can be good friends.a great blogs for me also is a blog that is very informative (such as helping them making a right choices of makeups) in lotsa ways, interactive, simple yet cute and very2 fun to read & make your readers addicted (to read your blog) and come back for more & more & more...hehe

nvr_dare_me said...

Yapeee Anniversary..^_^

Website blog (web log) or now commonly known as blog is very popular nowadays. With the advent of technology, we can write our own opinions where people from all over the world can read. Since it is a form of expression, blogging sets no rules. But of course, there are still some factors we have to consider. Netiquette is one. In virtual community (or the cyber world), we must still consider the basic value our parents teach us – respect from other people. As you express yourself through blogging, it is important to consider other people’s opinions too. Also, the use of harsh words must be avoided. There are things that can be done in a very proper manner. A good blog site does not only intend to entertain but to inform people regarding a particular topic that could possibly be of great help to other people. It is also better if the blog site entices participation among fellow bloggers and readers regarding different issues. Remarkably, message content follows after the blog site’s design.

Happy Blog Birthday, Gracie! :D

Anyhoo, I think a good blog is the one that reflects the author's personality, with clear and salient points that makes you nod while reading from the blogsite. It may not always be the topic you prefer (for us, it is usually make up) but for some reason, the reader can very well relate and is pushed to new ideas.

ilaybalilay@yahoo.com said...

happy blog-sary! congratulations!

a great blog must have a clear grasp of the target audience. it can be about the simple or mundane things but creatively written the reader thinks it's the most interesting thing. :)

beautylilsecrets said...

hi there gracie!been visiting your blog every now and then...i'm quite new in the blogging world but i think a great blog is...

informative at the same time entertaining, has a simple layout yet attractive, shares factual and personal opinions on matters...but best of all, a blog that can create new friendships anywhere in the world with an author not afraid to own her page :D

more years to come and God bless!

~tHiAmErE~ said...

just subscribed to your blog!
^_^

a good blog is one where the blogger is clearly having fun with what she is blogging about. It's informative, but at the same time it have its own flair.

Delivering personal opinion is something that we all can do, but we ought to have an originality.

A good blog is something that doesn't destroy anything, but instead flourish the information that she got from something. To know what the readers want & simplify it is something that we as a blogger should take an account for.

As what the saying goes, Simplicity is the glory of expression.

moiheartsmakeup said...

happy anniv sis! wow there are a lot of beauty bloggers celebrating their anniversaries huh? hehe.

before i enter your contest sis, i miss you! i've got lots of time to blog as i previously did and comment on your blog as well but i always hope that you and your family are always happy and safe. :)

for moi, a good blog is something that is personal yet relevant to others. better if it aims to help out his/her readers on any level he/she can. i personally think entertaining blogs are popular but good blogs are those that affect many people's lives. :)

Verena Maria said...

i think a great blog has nice quality of photos, simple languages that can be easily understood.. and informative of course.. and something that is also important.. cool layout..!!

heyhazelhazel said...

I think a good blog site has a lot of photos and a lot of the blogger's opinion. I hate those blogs that parrot ad copy.

Happy 1st blog Anniversary! :)

I think what makes a great blog is the content (it's a MUST), and followed by simple design. I love simple and neat template without too much ads or JavaScripts which consume too much bandwidth :D

Cris said...

A great blog has to be...Well, interesting and well-written (quite obvious, but true ;D), but it also should be interactive. It should allow comments and reply to the ones that have questions or expand new thoughs...I hate blogs that won't let my comments thorough, it makes me a bit miserable really :(.
By my standards, this is a great blog :).
Happy Blog Birthday ^_^.

shatzlaine said...

A good blog is a blog I’d follow on to, informative and picture-loaded for better appreciation,. The heart of the blog should be to share information, life endeavor and insights and not just to brag or show-off.

Happy blog anniv!!!

CG said...

One that is easy to read (good writing and simple blog format), easy to understand (considerate of newbies and not just the 'beauty' experts), has interesting and bright photos, and lots of personality and sincerity. There are many beauty blogs out there but I always come back to the ones I can easily relate to. Otherwise, I would feel that whatever beauty product or technique featured will not be applicable to me. Happy Anniversary and keep on blogging!
