How far should Industry Bloggers Stray from Industry Topics?

How much should Industry Blogs stray from Industry Posts?

They’re been coined as "Cat Posts" before; I’d define a "cat post" as a "personal post" or "off industry topic" post. (I’ve done a few this past week, but started post with "Cat Post" in the title).

I’d like to ask YOU, how much (if any),"Cat posts" should an Industry blogger ever do (not just me personally, but as a whole across all topical bloggers)?

Do blog readers like, or dislike it, when an Industry blogger gets off topic….or even personal. What is acceptable in tossing out cat posts? As readers, do you care, do yo mind, do you hate, do you like, does it depend (on what?)?
