I recently attended my first meeting of a Freelance Writers Group during which I learned that it is important for writers, especially those who write or plan to write books, to have a blog. Anyone who knows me will tell you that when it comes to putting words on paper I do not have a problem. However, the idea of writing a blog was almost overwhelming.
When I see blogs they are generally topic specific. Each posting is always on one general subject, but what should I write about? I am a writer, newsletter editor, and am working on a book. My husband and I have our own photography business, Times Gone By Photography, and spend a lot of time out shooting pictures. I am a scrapbooker, enjoy reading, attend a wide variety of local events, enjoy traveling when I can, work full time in a law office, and am a mother and grandmother. Which of those subjects should I choose? That was my dilemma.
My life is a melting pot of various activities. Everyone’s life is a melting pot. That is how I developed the theme, or title of my blog. This blog is about life and will cover all the various aspects of it. The good, bad, serious, and funny. Hopefully everyone finds something they can relate to in each post, because after all, Life Is a Melting Pot.
