One of the most common complaints I hear from wannabe bloggers is…”I want to start a blog, but I just don’t know what to write about.”
Do you want to know what my response is? “Then DON’T start a blog.”
That may sound strange from a person involved in a blog writing course, but it is true. If you don’t know what to blog about, you probably shouldn’t be blogging. That’s because the best blogs stem out of people’s passions. In some ways, blogs sort of start themselves when people have something to say, and they know they want to express it, so they kind of have to start a blog to get their words out.
If there is something that brings you constant enjoyment, something that your friends are sick of hearing you talk about, something that is constantly on your mind, or something that you have been through (or are going through) and you wish you could share the journey – – then you already have a blog theme! All that’s left to do is to get the technicalities out of the way and start writing!!
Even business bloggers need to rekindle the passion they feel for their company or product to be effective in the blogosphere. It doesn’t matter if you are a mom who happens to think her kids are the most fascinating human beings on the planet, or a man whose wife is in the first stages of Alzheimer’s disease – – if you live it, and you have strong feelings about it – – it’s probably good blog fodder!
