As an author and a blogger, my personal life often bleeds into my writing. Out of respect for my family’s privacy, I try to keep some things to myself. I try not to reveal any embarrassing personal stories that involve my kids, and as a mother of teenagers, I’ve come to realize that almost anything embarrasses them.
Most of the fun, entertaining stories I’ve compiled have come from my children or from the people I used to work with. If I can’t use friends and loved ones as fodder for my blog, what the heck am I supposed to blog about?
I could make stuff up, but I try to save my wild imaginings for my novels. I could spill all the dirt on my family and friends, but change the names to protect the innocent and the guilty. Or, I could write deep, thought-provoking articles. Okay, you can stop laughing now.
The truth is, I often struggle to find suitable blog topics. Honestly, I could use a little help. So, what do you like to read? What topics interest you? What would you like to see more of?
