Just to be clear, the majority of these ideas I did not come up with, but rather found them on various other websites/blogs. I wish I would have remembered to grab a link to the sources, but I didn't. Sorry. Umm.. (By the way, hovering your cursor over the picture makes the words more... legible. Sorry about the weird format.)
Anyway. I've been at a loss for things to blog about for... quite some time now. You may have noticed by the apparent lack of blog updates. They just don't happen all that often, do they! So, in my quest to get writing again (I'm really wanting to actually WRITE write, not just blog), I've decided to keep handy a list of topics that I might blog about. Get the brain going, you know? Feel free to use this list at your leisure. I'd love to read your responses to any/all of the items on it! It's fun to see how different people think.
In the meantime, be on the lookout for me hopefully actually using this list and updating my blog periodically. Preferably more than just once or twice a month, as has seemed to be my average as of late.
(Oh, but P.S. I probably won't blog any more this week. We're driving up to the North Country tomorrow after I get off of work because my cousin is getting married Saturday morning. And then, basically right after the wedding, we are driving back home so that I may close at work. But let's not talk about work right now, because it makes me want to cry. When the mess is sorted/more manageable, then perhaps I will blog the sob story/nightmare that has been controlling a great portion of my life since Tuesday.)
So, here it is. A List of Things to Blog About when you're at a loss for Things to Blog About.
