When I wrote this post earlier this year, it was in response to a question that I’m often asked: what should writers blog about before they are published?
Now that book one of The Mapmaker Chronicles has hit the shelves, I’m actually finding blogging more difficult than ever, mostly because I’m spending so much time thinking, dreaming and talking about The Mapmaker Chronicles. Seriously, how many times can I write blog posts about my own book?
Which leaves me with my next challenge: what to blog about now? I could (and do) blog about writing. I could (and do) blog about social media for writers. I could (and do) blog about my own book/s. But we’re all just going to get crazy/bored if that’s all I do, right?
In the earliest days of this blog, I used to talk about my boys more often. I’ve never blogged about them per se, but they were the starting point for some fantastic posts about parenting (that linked post is one of my favourite posts of all time), and writing (another everlasting favourite), and the whimsical stuff I love writing. But they’re bigger now, and I’m really aware of the footprint I leave online for them, so I tend to steer clear.
Which leaves me with Procrasti-Pup (bless him)
and my roses.
Puppies and roses. I guess, after nearly five years, there are worse things to blog about, right?
Has your blog changed? What do you blog about?
