superficial blog attraction

Today, I'd like to take you on a tour of blogs I like due to their appearance. They also possess other features of a high quality blog (good writing, interesting subject matter, fantastic commenters, etc.) but this is solely about my attraction to the way they look.

Life at Willow Manor

Bookstorm

coffee messiah

Kiss a Cloud

everyday reads

nonesuch books

Beautiful, aren't they? Although they each have a unique aesthetic sense, they share something in common. Any thoughts as to what it may be...

Thanks for the list. I've added a couple to Google reader.

Hi Sherry.. thanks so much for the link love! I visited the other sites and they're all wonderful, I wonder how you could ever put me in the same category (*blush, blush*).

Your blog is wonderful, too, by the way. I especially love your banner and title (of course, we know that). And I love your laughter posts. (And of course, the books!). *Hugs* to you..

2 columns?

I like the orange in everyday reads. And every time I see kiss a cloud's header I get jealous!

sherry said...

Great guess, Jill. I hadn't noticed that but you're right. They all have a two column format. I do like clean, uncluttered looks so maybe that does have something to do with the attraction.

Keep guessing...

What great links! Have to admit that I am really drawn to attractive blog appearance. I visit Kiss a Cloud twice a day most days just to see what Claire has done.

Really enjoy your blog too. Only came upon you recently thanks to Kiss a Cloud. So off to put you on my blog links before I forget...

Thank you for the complement! Hopefully readers will appreciate the content of my blog, as well.

Pam - of course your blog is aesthetically pleasing too! Thanks for stopping by.

Claire - I love so many other things about your blog in addition to its beauty. Thanks for the kind words.

Frances - Thanks so much for adding my blog to your blogroll. Yours is a blog that is worthy of this list because of its appealing layout (as well as the interesting content and organization of material). I'm adding it to this list.

Willow - your blog has it all & you're very welcome. Thanks for stopping by.

What a neat idea for a blog post! I know what you mean about loving the look of certain blogs. I'll going to go take this little tour.

And I love that little puzzle with the butterfly.

And the quote.

Can you tell I've been catching up with your blog but commenting just once!

And I gave you an award here:

OK, here's one thing these wonderful blogs have in common: nothing having to do with amazon is on them. No widgets...search boxes...nada. To me, the absence of anything amazon adds to the beauty of a blog or website.

This is a bit late but thank you Sherry! It's nice to be appreciated by fellow bloggers!

And your puzzle post made me quite addicted on them puzzles! That's why I never got around to commenting here sooner :)
