What To Talk About?
Apparently, there is a thing known as NaBloPoMo, which is short for November Blog Post Month, meaning you will post something every day in the month. I need to give this some thought, especially since Slow Fashion October didn't end up working out for me (that's a whole 'nother post), and I thought that would be a cinch. Such is life, you know?
In any event, this week for Ten on Tuesday, Carole wants us to list Ten Ideas for November Daily Blogging. I like thinking about what I might have to say in any given post (even if that doesn't seem the case when you are actually reading), so I thought I'd give this a try. I am going to try to mix it up with things that are usual topics, and then other random things that make their way into my brain.
1. Alliteration Days. You know - such as "Ten on Tuesday" or "Five on Friday." Thinking about this, I like the idea of "Madness Mondays" (you decide what madness is), or even "Weird or Wonky Wednesdays" since let's face it, there would always be something for that.
2. Good things. November brings us to Thanksgiving, and even if you don't give it much conscious thought for the rest of the year, think of some good things during this month. Things that make you happy, things you are thankful for, etc. I have found that trying to think of good things on a bad day can help me a lot.
3. Quotes, poems, prayers for the day. Some days you just feel like a good quote, you know?
4. Pickles. Accordions. Lamps. I think it would be fun to write a post about whatever word pops into your head when you sit down to write.
5. Holidays. Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, Festivus. How do you celebrate? Do you celebrate?
6. Of course, project updates, whether knitting, sewing, painting, or whatever you are in the process of doing, and how it's going.
7. A photo/video tour. Of your house, your office, your craft room, a park nearby. Show people some of your favorite places/things.
8. Cooking, baking, eating, drinking. Everyone enjoys a recipe or hearing about a special meal or restaurant, etc. (OK maybe not everyone. But they don't have to read it if they don't want to.)
9. Tips. Have you figured out an easier way to do X? Why not share it with everyone else?
10. Whys. Why do you like something? Why do you always do something a certain way? Why do you still blog, when others count on Facebook, Instagram, etc.?
I think if you don't force it, NaBloPoMo, could be fun. And if you don't obsess over what to write, or show, you could actually enjoy the daily challenge of it. The problem is overthinking. Carole shared this post, which also has ideas and prompts, and I'm sure if you read the other Ten on Tuesday posts, you'll get even more possibilities.
As for me ... well, it could happen. Who knows?
