What makes a good blogger?

I took a LONG vacation from blogging and I apologize to anyone who missed me.  I'll try and make fairly frequent posts now that I'm back. I don't have any weekly posts or certain things that mean I have to keep a schedule but I know I have to post to keep someone's attention.  I appreciate any feedback and try to answer any comments.  Speaking of that, I wanted to mention a blog that I follow.  It's a 'foodie' blog and I enjoy reading about dining experiences and other recipes. One blogger in particular posts almost every day.  She's quite popular evidently because she gets free trips to conventions, has get-togethers with other bloggers which are sometimes video broadcast, and she quite often gets free products to try.  Sounds great, huh?  So why doesn't she ever respond when people post comments on her blog? I and others have asked her out-right questions and she never answers.  I don't think this is good blogging.  What do you think?  If you have any suggestions to make MY blog better, please don't hesitate to let me know.

Purely a guess, but I bet she has additional real life obligations which keep her from even attempting to answer actual questions.
A shame really because the whole reason we frequent blogs is because we like the content, and not to be able to ask and get an answer when we need one is frustrating.

Hi Jo! Nice to see you here.

Re: the blogger, yes, she has a LOT of family responsibilities, 3 kids and pregnant, but she's a stay-at-home mom. Currently her family is in France on vacation (her birthplace). I just think she could take 5 minutes and reply to some of her comments. And I was just using her as an example of good/bad blogging.
