It depends, for some blogs it's because the photo's are just so clear and amazing and for other's it's just that they write very well. Blogs that are continuously posting about things that are sent to them are starting to get very boring and so I don't tend to follow them so much these days. I like a blog were you can actually imagine the person who writes and were their personality shines through :)

For me the first thing that draws me in is general blog design, if they've got a nice simple layout and white background they've already got a headstart in my books! I like a bit of personality and not just press release after press release. It also really irritates me when there is excessive advertising, like after each post...

The first thing I notice is the quality of the photos and that's what draws me in. Second is definitely the design of the blog, I love seeing something really simple or a little more creative. And lastly, I check if I like the writing style, but the photos are what gets me usually haha :D
I mostly follow beauty blogs with a few fashion ones thrown in, sometimes I also like reading cooking blogs if they have great photography and recipes!

I agree definitely good photos, I also find it interesting to learn a bit about the blogger too, for me it makes it more interesting :)

I think my favorite blog of all time is http://www.Kissandmakeup.blogspot.com - I think the reason I initially was so intriuged was because of the layout/header she had at time (which by the way I love her layout now, and she actually now creates them for other blogs too) I just loved it! and I really loved her topics and her pictures they were just colorful and fun.

Now as I have been blogging for a few months its other things now I can appreciate like the actual quality of the picture (I know how time consuming it is now to take the perfect picture!) and I do love a blog that you can kinda "get to know" in a sense as far as personality.

1. The layout, if there are a million things going on all at once it distracts the reader no matter how good your writing skills are (I especially hate black backgrounds)
2. Pictures, before I started blogging I did not realize how difficult can be sometimes to get the perfect shot of something. What I have realized however is clear and concise pictures draw readers in
3. Style, I find that many of the blogs I follow have a similar style of my own. Whether it be I have similar product interests or fashion wise I like to get inspired

Just some of the things I have noticed myself taking into account when I decide to follow a blog!

* A nice clear and simple layout which is easy to read.

* Good quality pictures.

* Writing style which tells me more about a reader, i don't want to read a blog just full of product reviews.

* A mixture of things rather than just set on one particular subject, the blogs i like best are which contain Fashion/Beauty and General Ramblings.

Lay out is important to me, also nice photos.

I agree though that the ones that gives you some insight into the lives of the blogger makes a much more interesting read.

The Thoughts embedded in a particular blog makes me feel that so and so author is likely to produce new ideas in his/her thoughts and therefore I feel like following those thoughts produced by the blogger in that blog.
