well i have to admit, i dont really care about their family or anything, but since i am a history nut, anything to do with history piques my interest. (perhaps the history of where they live, that sort of idea...)

Different people have different likes, dislikes and interests. If you want to be a well-read blogger then you must write from you heart. I know that this a cliche, but this the open secret in blogging. You can ask all the people what they want to read in a blog but in the end you will get a mishmash of interests that will confuse you. That is what I think, if you want to be well read, then you write what interests you because by doing so will give you the energy to write longer and better. You will not be forced to write anything you have no interest to. My suggestion is for you to start blogging now. You my start your blog as a personal blog, then if you get more confident in your writing then you can create a more specialized blog (i.e. poliblog, food blogs, etc.) I am a newbie in blogging and in the future I hope I can create a good blog and be well read many people. If you want, visit my two blogs: http://theparadoxicleyline.blogspot.com and http://paradoxicleyline.wordpress.com

Different people like to posts different things..Some may like to post about their life,personal,daily and love life.Its like an online diary to them and friends or who ever may reads it.This also interest me to read their blogs if they are whom i know..my friends & families!Generally for me,i love reading about the entertainment life that peoples posts in their own opinion.Me myself do posts about that too. Those who blogs about the life in general meaning the everyday life around them also i enjoyed.Some may have the capabilities to blog interestingly that makes me attracts and visit their blogs often.
