What word can I use to describe people who frequently keep telling a long story in a boring way (i.e. they keep telling their life incidences in exaggerated way)?

In a similar vein, what word can I use to describe people who keep telling their life incidences in interesting and enjoyable ways?

A good word for the first type of person might be blowhard: An exceptionally talkative and boastful person. Or, perhaps they are a windbag: someone with nothing to say, who takes all day to say it.

Going only slightly further afield, you might call them a blatherer, babbler, prattler, or chatterer.
