What do I blog about?

One of the pieces of advice I often see in book and articles about how to blog is that one should pick a subject to blog about. For me that is impossible. I have a multitude of interests and I enjoy blogging about all of them. Tomorrow I might find something new that is interesting and then I'll blog about that. Thank heavens I don't feel any need to monetize my blog and I can blog about what I want ot blog about.

Recently one of my Reno blogging friends – Ron at Local So-and-so blogged about the exact same thing.

I loved the way he put it.

"As for me, I'm content to meander along, like a lazy flowing river,
curious to see what's around the next bend. Who knows, maybe I'll find
a purpose for my blog there, or maybe even a way to make some real
money without selling my soul to the Devil"

  1. I can’t say I blog much these days. I’m just content with posting photos and don’t feel like writing any more, but in the days I did blog, I was just like you. But then I am more of a dilettante than somebody who has one point she wants to make 😀

  2. Even though I depend on specialty blogs for most of my news, blogs like yours are always the most interesting. I can’t explain why that is either. It just is. We may not pull in the number of readers that marketers demand, but someday the historians are going to love us.

    That is such a good point – I think of my blog as being like a commonplace book – somewhere to record all my meanderings and burblings and all the little goodies I find along the way.
