For me it is those with lots of card samples, daily updates, really great tips, fun new techniquest. I don't like those with soapbox issues, lots of journal entries, family or other photos that are not craft related. I bookmark those I like and don't return to those I don't care for. I read some blogs daily!

I've been visiting lots of blogs lately just trying to get to know people. I'd like to know what everyone likes in a blog too. I'll stick around in this thread

I really like blogs where people post almost everyday and share a lot of cards. I just love to read something new every day. The three bloggers I've been visiting most often are:

Amy Rysavy
Gina K
Nichole Heady

I like blogs that are mostly stamp related, but if they throw in some personal stuff, that' ok, because I get to know them a little better. Two of my favorites to check are Serikastamper's(Pink Lemonade) and Stamp_momma's (Make a Difference).

Updating times don't really matter to me, because I have a blog and it's hard enough for me trying to update it every other day with stuff that I have going on, so I know that other people probably have time restrictions also.

I'm with everyone else. I mostly enjoy blogs that are more stamp related than ones that focus on journaling about personal stuff. I do like a little bit of personal info, but I prefer the focus to be obviously stamp related.

Currently the only blog I visit weekly is TayloredExpressions. I love her blog it's the perfect balance of everything.

I like stamping related blogs. I don't mind a little personal info, since that helps me learn more about my favorite stampers. I don't like a ton of detail though I seem to be finding a new, great blog a day. Currently my favorite blogs are:
Nichole Heady
Debbie Olson
Michelle Wooderson
TayloredExpressions
... and I pop in on Jan Tink's... because I think it's great that she loves herself , Beate Johns, and well, the list goes on!!!

The following 2 things are the hallmarks of a great blog, IMHO:

1. Great stamping with ingredients on how to make the card or other item.
2. Personality of the blogger shines through -- makes me wish I could meet the blogger.

I have a ton listed on Google Reader so it doesn't matter to me how frequently someone updates.

I tend to only visit blogs that are updated at least every second to third day. I am a blogger too, so I know how hard it is to update lots (I skip days here and there!). But, I find that if I know that there will be an update often, I visit often.
Also, I like a mixture of cards and altered items. I get a bit bored with just cards, even though I LOVE seeing them! I just like to see other stamped projects too.

If you want to see great ideas with so much talent, or need a good "gut" laugh go to JanTinks Blog. Great stuff inside.

I try to update mine daily, if not every second to third day. I include a bit of personal stuff, but alot of my crafting--woodworking, stamping, scrapbooking. I don't know why I don't get more of a response, I think I rock!! I think many people just don't know about my blog. I would continue doing it, though even If it was just for me. It is theraputic, I guess. keri

I put any blog I want to keep track of on my Google Reader account. You can sign up for this for free at http://google.com or Google Reader It's easy to copy new addresses into it when you "discover" a new blog. It's great for keeping track of all blogs, especially those that post great stuff, but on an irregular basis. I have lots of favorites. Some of them are:

Beate's blog

Thinking Inking

Linda's Works of Heart

A couple of new blogs that I've just added to my Google Reader are:

I lie, cheat and CASE

and everything nice

I'm shocked no one has mentioned emilymomto3boys blog yet. She recently held a contest and asked us to ask her questions, which she is now answering. I have found this to be very interesting. I also visit her sister's blog, MamaK. They both update every day.

I also like to go to Stampin' Kub's blog. If I could just have the creativity from his pinky finger, it would do wonders for my cards.

I also like Ali Edward's blog. She, however, has a lot of personal stuff there. I think it's funny that she lives in Oregon and I'm in Middle Tennesse and our personal lives are so similar.

I love reading people's blogs - about everything!

There are a few that I tend to read more often, but I like one's that are written by down-to-earth, just like everyone else, kinda people. I love seeing different crafty ideas, but I enjoy reading about little family/kid experiences too. I think that a combination of both really gives you an idea of who that person really is!

I have a huge list of blogs I read, but there are only about three or four that I HAVE TO read every day. I like ones that have new info each day (doesn't have to be a lot...just new info.) And I really like blogs where I feel like I get to know the person...so a bit about family is fine with me...as long as the main focus of the blog is stamping related. My two all time favorites are Heartfelt Greetings and My Inky Fingers.

I like to cruise around the blogs. I get notified for some, but I always like Jan TInk's wit and creations. I love Julia S's Belle Papier, and Sharon Harnist's PaperFections. Their titles alone make me smile and that's even before I see the wonderful creations they post.

I love lots of blogs, and it's fun to see what people say about their stamping experiences.

I've only just got into reading blogs but am stacking up quite a few favourites already. It looks like I'm the opposite to those who have already posted here - I get overwhelmed by new techniques and love to read all the personal stuff. I'm basically a very nosey person and enjoy these "slices of life".

One of my absolute favourites is SweetMissDaisy's Sassy and Sweet Notes (although it's taking long and longer to load due to all her fabulous pictures). I love the fact that it's not just stamping but about life on her farm too. And I ADORE the pictures of baby animals!

And I love Bloggabella because Emily is so crazy and just like a normal person; despite being the Goddess of Bella she's not too busy to chat with her fans/customers/stalkers.

There are lots of others too - far too many to mention!

I read a lot of blogs, including many of the ones already mentioned above. But the that I would recommend to everyone is Stampin' When I Can www.stampinwhenican.blogspot.com. Allison does a fantastic job of posting updates from tons of other blogs, so visiting her blog is a great way to keep current on what's going on. Personally I think she deserves a medal for her service to the stamping blogosphere!

Lisa Johnson's blog, Poppy Paperie, is the blog that started the addiction for me. From there I went on to Julie and Taylor and now my list is so long I had to go to Google Reader which has saved me soooooo much time. BTW, I like the blogs that talk about stamping but include a little about real life too....just fun to get to know everyone.

i've enjoyed this thread... i'm so addicted to blog-hopping, so it's great to find a few new ones to check out! i tend to like those that share stamping with a bit of personal stories and other crafts sprinkled in since that's what i do. my blog is also for my local customers, so i share printed designs, cakes & party ideas too--but stamping is my first love! i also visit several non-stamping blogs too (my favorite: tales from my tiny kingdom).

*some* of my current stamping faves are:
{capture the moment}
poppy paperie
paper trufflez
stamping scoops
mona lisa moments
taylored expressions
prairie paper & ink
i{heart}2stamp
simple dreams

i just couldn't narrow it down to three and there are still more!

for now, i'd better get back to work!

I have dozens of blogs bookmarked that I check when I have time. The ones I check every single day are the blogs of my friends... I just want to see what they're up to and if they've posted a creative project that's a great bonus.

I also have a group of crafty blogs that are not stamping related and they're really interesting, especially Heather Bailey's.

I have a ton of blogs I like to visit as well, most of which have already been mentioned here.

Even though I love to see new and exciting stuff, I prefer those that use mostly SU! stuff because it's fun to see the ideas people come up with for products I already have.

I love to blog read and have tons bookmarked. Usually on the weekends I get to sit down and read them all. I work 12 hour shifts during the week. I would love to get to update mine more and going to try to but sometimes it gets hard during the week. Love to look at new cards people have made and love when people post techniques and tutorials! There are some amazing and creative people out there!!!

I just figured out how wonderful google reader is and will be using it instead of bookmarking blogs. The blogs I really like have frequent posts as well as detailed descriptions of the work. It's nice when they have a clear link to their SCS gallery, so I can put work I like into my favorites for future reference. I also like it when blogs have links to where to get particular products...although, maybe that's not such a great thing. I have purchased more than my fair share of stamps, DP, and tools over the past few months. Maybe detailed descriptions aren't the best after all. I'd link to my favorite blogs, but with so many that I like, it'd take way too much time. Let's see...what else? I also like product reviews so I can see what others are using and what works/doesn't work for them. Finally...really, I'm about done...I love looking at their stamping spaces, if they have pictures somewhere on their blog.

I read a thread about 4 or 5 months ago that talked about what people wanted to see on a blog. A lot of people said they liked to most frequent the blogs that were 95% stamping related with just a few pieces of family stuff thrown in here and there. That's when I decided to start a personal blog so that people that wanted to keep up with my personal life could do just that, but for people that just wanted to read about stamping related stuff didn't have to page past the personal stuff. it's been a good balance for me.

As for favorites, I have a bunch of blogs on my blog roll....

I love Dawn Griffith's personality: http://dawnsstampingthoughts.typepad...ping_thoughts/

Mary Anderson has such a sweet spirit: http://itsallaboutthejourney.typepad...t_the_journey/

Nicole and I go WAY back (she's responsible for getting me sucked into SCS):
http://inkblots.webseitler.com/blog/

Sarah Moore.....what can I say??? I just love that girl to pieces:
http://stampstars.blogspot.com/

GinaK is da BOMB!:
http://blog.ginakdesigns.com/

If you haven't checked out Corinne Delis' blog yet, you really should. She's AMAZING! I've been following her since July and am taking her online course right now. Her style is awesome and she's a whiz with the camera:
http://corinne-delis.typepad.com/the...a_dutch_scrap/

There's so many more......but just wanted to bring some out that some of you may not have seen.

I love reading and scoping out stamping blogs!!! I have so many bookmarked and love them all...I love to see the works of art and everyday life.
Many of them I will never meet yet I often can relate to whatever they share in their blogs.

I finally took the plunge and started blogging myself. I read all kinds of blogs. I go to Julie Ebersole's nearly every day. From there I can spend hours linking and following links, etc.
Of course all of us stampers want more stamping info than anything else!!

I've found that my blog has many different audiences...from distant family members to my workout buddies and all the stampers in between so I try to keep the balance going. Many blogs have links to tags assigned to the posts. If the writer assigns topics to the posts, its easy to go to the ones which interest you.

Have fun!

i am a blog addict....have I subscribed to this thread? hmmm...not sure, so subscribing again. I look at about 20-30 of them. I take turns everyday on which ones I look at. Most have been mentioned here, but there are a few I have never heard of, so must check them out. They are such a great source of inspiration.
