That "Blog Star" Look

What constitutes a Blog Star? The question has been posed on numerous occasions and today I am going to answer it.

1. Great writing style. I love to read a well-written blog - who doesn't? Vivid descriptions, nice use of metaphors and simile's, and well written anecdotes are all things that the Blog Patrol looks for when assigning Blog Star status.

2. Design. If you are forced to use a standard template, no big deal, but try to infuse the design with some of your own creativity. See http://thesquareslant.blogspot.com for example. And if you can get a custom template, then by all means - do.

3. Consistency. I like to go to a blog that is updated frequently. There is nothing more irritating to me than going to a favorite blog only to find that they haven't updated in two weeks and they haven't given a reason for not updating. Unless you are dead, you need to update - consistently.

Those are the core ingredients to a Super Star blog. If your blog hasn't been nominated for super star status then perhaps it is time you took a look at your blog, get out the turtle wax, shine it up a bit, and then bring it to our attention - we might just give you the very coveted Blog Star Award.
