What do you look for in a food blog?

There are so many food blogs these days - I've probably bookmarked a couple of hundred and often when I go back to read again I wonder what the hell I was thinking. I'm like the rest of the sheep and read Pioneer Woman, Smitten Kitchen, and of course, Serious Eats, but what makes a really good personal food blog? Is it pictures? Recipes? The personality of the blogger? All of the above?

So many bloggers try too hard to be funny and just aren't but then I'll see their recipes or restaurant reviews and think, okay, who needs funny when you have Korean tacos or a five course meal at a chic San Francisco eatery to read about.

What makes YOU read more than once?
