I'd searched for something like this after reading this post by Kristen Lamb. Her post caused quite a stir for authors, bloggers, and writers who blog about writing, but when I read it, I sighed. A happy, heart-lifting, freedom kind of sigh. Because, honestly, I don't want to blog about writing every time I post. Sheesh. Did I just write that? Yes, indeed I did.
So after reading her post, I contemplated and listed things that encapsulate my life. Writing is one of those things, but my list hosts many other things too. And why can't this blog accumulate all those things in one place? I think it can.
Mondays evolved into sharing my love of middle grade books and linking with others who do the same. Wednesdays blurt writing blurbs. And Fridays are a free-for-all. And because it's a pattern, not a set-in-cement plan, I can follow it or deviate from it. Even the days I post, they can flex. Ahhhhh. I found freedom. And that was important to me.
What about you? If you're a writer who blogs, how do you determine what you blog about? And should writers mostly blog about writing? Let's talk.
