The main reason I find is the quality of the bulb ( buy cheap buy twice) . I had a customer who told me her bulb went often and when I checked they were of a good quality after some investigation I found her young boys jumping off the top bunk onto the floor this excessive vibration was the main issue, and after some tweaking I managed to install the bulbs on springs inside there fittings, no bulbs have blown since. Other reasons are age off switches, cabling and of course the bulb itself, Ie switches may have worn causing spikes etc

There are many variables that might make light bulbs blow. Cheap light bulbs are generally made of a poor quality lots of vibration or movement while the bulbs are on will weaken and blow the bulb element Also old switches with dirty contacts can make an arc and send an electrical spike through to the bulb and blow the element Old age from the bulb being switched on and off a lot or being used for a long period of time Electrical spikes sent through the electrical network can cause bulbs to blow . This is very rare and generally if this happens a lot of electrical equipment is effected in your home
