What Should I Blog About

I have two blogs but I don't post on a regular basis on either one of them. There's plenty of material in my various notebooks that I can post to, ain't nothing to it but to do it. On the other hand, coming up with things to blog about here is where my dilemma lies. During National Novel Writing Month (, I talked about my novel writing progression (or lack thereof). From December to October, my posts are few and and far between.

To get my creative writing juices flowing, I've decided that I want to participate in National Blog Posting Month ( Since there isn't any specific month that this challenge takes place, I figured February was as good a month as any. Not only because it is the shortest month (which means only 28 posts) but because I should be able to come up with something interesting to talk about with Valentine's Day, my birthday and the anniversary of my mother's death all taking place during that month. I may even write about my baby sister, who was born a couple of weeks before my 25th birthday (Yeah, I'm old enough to be her mom). On those dates where nothing significant happened, I'm sure I will be at a loss for words. To avoid that fiasco, I've been Googling blog topics and trying to decide what else I could talk about to inform yet entertain my readers.

Here's the list of blogs that I found that provided a wealth of topics to choose from.

Even though these sites are written from the prospective of people in several different fields, they all pretty much give you the same advice-in so many words-write about what interests you. A lot of things interest me (writing, crafting, technology, and education), but I'll just have to come up with a way to write about my ideas in a way that won't make my readers fall asleep or wonder--"What the heck is Susie talking about?"

Help a sister out...
What do you blog about? Does your blog have a particular theme or do you just write about whatever tickles your fancy?
