Researching a column I'm writing on how inspire readers to comment on your blog, I came across this morsel of advice, from someone called MommaBlogga:
"Of course, your life will be the main source for your blog, but take
your posts to the next level by appealing to something that applies to
more than just you and your spouse.
For example, don’t just say 'I had Kix for breakfast,' say, 'I had
Kix for breakfast. What’s your favorite cereal or breakfast food?'"
