Blog in the Spotlight

Blog in the spotlight

Here’s another new feature for empfire.info. It’s called “Blog in the Spotlight”. Every month I will write a blog post about a blog that I love. I won’t just be talking about pretty layouts and awesome coding, but I’ll be writing about people who write interesting posts that make me want to return time and time again. It doesn’t matter whether the blog is hugely popular or just a small one that’s recently started.

I won’t be accepting requests for this feature. I want it to be more of a reward for awesome blogs and their owners/authors. I will pick a blog I love, contact the owner, either before I write the post (to make sure it’s okay) or afterwards. It really depends on whether people like the idea of me contacting them afterwards like “Hi, you’re the chosen one!” or if you’d prefer to give me the go ahead before. I will only write nice things, I promise.

Not only will these blogs get an entire post dedicated to them but I will also provide an advertising spot in the sidebar for a month, with a special “Blog in the Spotlight” heading, so everyone knows you are special!

As I said, I won’t accept requests; however, if you were to comment regularly here and then I end up falling in love with your blog when I come to return your comments, you might just end up as a part of the feature.

Stay tuned for my first Blog in the Spotlight. You never know, it might be you!

Enjoyed this post? Why not share it...


  1. This idea of having “Blog in the Spotlight” sounds so neat! You can spread the love for their content and everything. I can only think of good things for both sides; like you can have an awesome post about the blog while the other blog gets their name out there for doing what they do. I’m looking forward into seeing this series become live~

  2. I think this is a great idea. Not only is it a nice reward for whichever blogger you choose, it also encourages networking, which can only be a good thing.
    I look forward to seeing the future features. 🙂

      Yeah, I really want to support other bloggers. Especially those that don’t get the attention that they deserve.

    I think this is a great idea! I was going to start doing something similar to this last year, but series and I don’t equate to the continuation of them happening, at least not on my personal blog… I don’t understand why I’ve such a difficult time keeping up with them on there, ha.

    Anyway, like Nancy, I’m looking forward to this! 🙂

    p.s. I like the layout change. :]

      I hope I manage to keep up with this feature! I go through periods of not wanting to blog at all, and then other times I can’t stop.

      I’m glad you like the layout. 🙂

  4. I think that’s such a good idea. I like seeing the blogs that other people enjoy. I used to something similar with a Sunday Link Love but then that went by the wayside.

      Yeah, I just hope I can keep up with this feature. I can get a little lazy from time to time!

    What a great idea! I’ve been looking for more blogs to read so this is fabulous. Now I know where to go when I need a new read. (:

    I think this is a great idea! I feel like a lot of people feature blogs for their looks and not their content. It’ll be nice to see a spotlight focused on the person’s writing instead. I look forward to seeing who you pick!

    • Holly

      Exactly! I think we are all guilty of judging a blog by its layout from time to time. But, you can’t judge a book by its cover. I love blogs that have fantastic content.

  7. Aw, this sounds wonderful! I’m always up for finding new blogs 🙂

  8. I really loved this idea of yours!
