I've got a question.
But I've always got a question, you say...well that is true, but this one is a blog question.
Where do you get your inspiration?
I know, many of us out here are mommy bloggers and I think kids provide a great source of inspiration (mine, at least, provide LOTS of humerous blog topics, remember broken nuts?) But kids aside where else does it come from and here's the kicker...how do you determine what you want to write about?
I ask, not because I want to steal your ideas, but because I have those days where I seem to be floundering out there in the sea of blog words with nothing to write...at least nothing write worthy. I try to write about things that relate to my life, highs and lows in my life, sometimes the kids, sometimes goofy things at work and sometimes I can't help but mention some of the crazy stuff that happens in the news that has caught my attention. But there are many days where either I've run out of ideas or better yet, I have a bunch of ideas and I can't pick the right one.
Take for example yesterday, I blogged about my alarm clock and how much I hate to hear it go off. Funny thing was that I had spent many hours prior to that trying to decide what I would write about. I just didn't have it, nothing, I was drawing a blank. Then the whole alarm thing went off and I just couldn't get it out of my head...so you, wonderful readers, got to hear about it.
Lucky You! (wink wink)
What I find most fascinating about all of this is the fact that I am rarely ever without anything to say. I've always got something to say on a topic or two, seriously, I chat ALL DAY LONG at work (and yes, I could provide stories for days on that one) but really, it can't possibly be good to talk about co-workers when they know you blog!
So, once again I am back to my original delimma. Where is the inspiration?
How do you find your inspiration for blog topics?
