I read several blogs for several different reasons.
After a while, I begin to feel like I know the author... At least I begin to know the part they share on their blog. Whether it's personal or business, I begin to understand how they think and what they think is important.
When a blog has made it to my Must Read list, I begin to wonder why the author started blogging in the first place. I mean, I know why I started blogging, so I wonder if they started for the same reasons. Which means sometimes I will go in search of their first post.
Some of these bloggers have hundreds or thousands of readers. However, at one time they all had zero readers and zero comments. Which makes it really interesting to read some of the early posts.
Here are links to the first posts on some of my Must Read blogs.
