As this blog evolves, I'm discovering that inspiration is not always as readily available as I had hoped. But, as I follow an insane amount of other people's blogs, I've found a technique that some use that may spur on some new ideas.
It appears that the trend for many blogs is to have a common theme/idea for a day of the week. For example, there's Nathan Bransford's "You Tell Me . . ." and "This Week in Publishing"; ResaDesign's "Mom Tip Monday"; Stacy Nyikos's "You Might Be a Writer If"; and, a recent discovery, Katydid and Kid's "Tech Tuesday." Oh, and I almost forgot my favorite, Cup of Jo's "Wednesday Giveaway."
So my brainstorm right now is centering on a weekly theme I could contribute to my blog. Should it be tips for writers? what I've found about getting published? mama guides? writermama anecdotes? mamas with freelance careers? simple, easy-to-swallow steps to living more healthy? recipes? pictures?
Any thoughts? ideas? What do you want to read? Faithful followers, what have you found as a common thread that you'd like to see more of? I'd love your input!
