So I have been feeling a little guilty about not posting anything in 2 weeks. But I've got nothing to post because I am having a severe case of writer's/ideas block. I thought for sure by now something would have popped into my head.
|Oh, but it is so pretty!|
So I googled "blog ideas" and there were lots of sites making suggestions. One site, 101 Fabulous Blog Topic Ideas, did not really help. I liked a couple of them, like the how-to blog post and the list blog post.
Now I need ideas on what to how-to about and what to list.
How to survive winter in the northeast. Hmm, if you live here and don't know by now, I hear that North Carolina and states south are nice places to live. Oh, yeah, wait, they've been having the same weather!
How to get your garden ready for Spring. First, wait for all the snow to melt. Second, wait for the new snow to melt.
How to transition your clothes closet for Spring weather. No hurry on this, we will be wearing boots, winter coats and sweaters till mid-April. For now you can just drool over all the fashion magazine pages, store displays and racks of Spring clothes that are already out, that you won't be wearing yet.
Okay, let's try the List blog post idea.
A list on stuff to always have in stock in your kitchen. Boring.
A list on 10 ways to beat the winter blahs. Number 1....some sunshine.
A list of great books to snuggle up with. ZZZZZ, what? Oh, yeah, I'm here.
Maybe I am expecting too much for wanting a really unique topic to write about. I've done the personal story post, the family recipes, the holiday recipes, the flowers in my garden, the decorated mantel. I even did a blog post about nothing, during my last bout with writers block. I've done the inspirational post, the trip to an interesting place, and wrote about all my fabulous thrifted finds. More than once.
Actually that has been the most fun I've had this winter. Picking and thrifting the local VOA, Goodwill and Savers for donated goodies from people who have actually put their time to good use cleaning out their basements and attics. Right now though, I am in the business of filling up my basement with great old stuff! But I digress.....
For now I will blame my writer's block, along with my non-stop head cold, dry skin and achy joints on winter. He can take it. Because He (Old Man Winter) will be back next year and we can do this all over again.
Any ideas for me for posts? I have another 6 weeks of winter to fill!!
