How do you decide what to write about?

Life, PhotographyMarylin4 Comments

Are you one of those born organized people who have a schedule and stick to it? Or are you the sort of person who writes when the whim takes you? Do you try to blog every day, or just a few times a week?

What if you're really struggling to think of a decent post, but you just can't think of anything at that point. You *really* don't want to not post (if, for example, you blog every day), but you don't know where to start. When I hit a wall like this that, I write about it, and try to think up ways of working around it.

I know that there are lots of areas that I can cover, but I'm not sure where to start. Maybe that's my problem. Maybe I have too wide a list of things to talk about. Maybe that's what leaves me struggling.

So here are some random excerpts from my day:

*****

I read some more of my Understanding Exposure book, but haven't yet implemented any of what I've read. I think I will need to write notes of the important bits of info so that they're all in the one place, easy for me to get to.

*****

I took some photos of the leaves in my back garden today once the rain had stopped, but I just couldn't get the macro shots I was wanting. Whether it's my kit lens, or my expertise that were lacking, I just couldn't get that really close up shot of those gorgeous water droplets that I was hoping to capture.

*****

My cat is currently trying to type my blog post for me, but I told him - you only need one space in between paragraphs. He didn't listen.

*****

I still have a lot of stuff to unpack in my bedroom. It seems to be the place I've put boxes full of things that don't have a home yet.

I'm working on it.

(At least I finally have one huge mofo of a bedroom!)

*****

Things are starting to normalize around here. The 4 yr old has started at his new nursery, and we're finding out about other playgroups etc to go to that can help fill up our weekdays.

*****

I want to get back into my usual routine, but there's too much good tv on late at night, and I don't have Sky Plus yet.

*****

I really should get my butt to bed now so I can start getting up earlier to be more productive around the house at least. ;)

Night all!
