How do you choose your blog topic?
What Gayatri doesn’t know is that at times I struggle to find a suitable topic to discuss. Earlier when I was posting twice a week, I would go nuts trying to think of topics without repeating myself. Time constraints and a lack of topics is one of the reasons I have reduced the posting days.
As my blog is restricted to all aspects of writing, I have limited things I can talk about. I would hate to bore my awesome blog buddies and devoted readers by talking about I, Me and Myself. That’s why I choose writing topics that will interest everyone, even those who are not writers.
I often choose a theme/topic which I am struggling with or which I find interesting while writing my stories. If I am brainstorming a book, I blog about that. If I am travelling the revision road, that topic finds its way into my blog. If I am struggling with a resolution to a story, it becomes my theme for the post. If I come across an interesting way of describing things, I discuss that.
Sometimes I blog about a topic on which I need an opinion from my writing friends. When I come across some writing tips, I am eager to share that through a post, so that my blog buddies too benefit from it.
How do you choose your blog topic? Like me, do you at times struggle to choose topics, or do the topics come knocking on your door? What kind of blog topics do you like to write and read about? On another note, which topics bore you? Please share your views with us?
