These are 5 blogs that I love to spend time on. I chose these ones because I find myself learning from them, whether it’s learning from the content they post or the way they set up their blog, or both. They are very easy to spend time reading through because they keep their posts relevant and interesting, and they also update often to keep information new.
Mashable has a lot going on as far as content goes. It is a blog on social media giving you tips and news, which is why I like it. It has a how-to section for social media, and examples of how you can use social media for your business. The have a feature on the home page called “trending stories” which is a handy because it highlights today’s most popular stories in a way that’s relevant to social media content. It has something for everyone, it connects web technology to both business and entertainment.
This has a lot of funny things from a lot of different places which is why I like it. There’s many different categories of “fails” and they do a good job at keeping the content new or updated. It’s also pretty easy and self-explanatory to navigate through, which is always a good thing.
I like blogs I can go and look at fashion-related things. This blog has a lot of that and also a lot of fashion news, but it’s not too heavy on one or the other. It has the featured stories and top stories displayed, and it’s easy to find exactly what I’m looking for. My favorite feature on this blog is the retail news it gives because it relates to a wide variety of retail whether it be affordable or not so affordable, it has all of it.
This blog has a really interesting set up. The home page is made up entirely of posts, and it is by far the easiest blog to navigate through. The top toolbar consists of all the categories they post about, and each post is a sort of how-to. The side bar includes an “easy button” to follow them on Twitter, which is a good promotional method, and next to it, they make it very easy to subscribe to the blog.
I really like getting my news and information from the Huffington Post because of how they arrange their information. it makes it really easy to see where I want to go and what stories are interesting/important any given day. The stories displayed on the home page include some of their content on the feature, which is nice if you are just trying to scroll through without having time to read through all of them.
