Seven Tips on Selecting Subjects to Blog About

 Re-posted* mainly from July 2013

Tips on selecting blog subjects/post topics:

1. Read other blogs to find subjects not done already or not given an approach of interest to you.

2. Chose words in the dictionary that spark your interest. They can help create ideas that will lead you to areas to blog about.

3. Look around your house. Are there stories you can share in a non-personal way that doesn't advertise your valuables?

4. Consider creating a series on one area like paper, fabric, realism, cubism, street art, or brushes to blog about the history, manufacturing, current trends, and such. The more you know about a subject, the more ideas might be generated from that interest.

5. Make a list of all the areas of art or the theme of your blog. Section a small notebook for each. Write down your thoughts in each section to write about later.

6. Check your refrigerator. Have a recipe to share? If not, them create one, try it out, and blog about the process. Everyone pretty much likes food.

7. Create a seasonal photo folder to consult. Chose a photo to expand on for a blog you can add links to.

Whatever you chose as a blog subject, like what you write about.

  1. Dear Maywyn - great advice about blogging - good tips. It is hard at times to come up with something new that is for certain. Take care and have a great week.

  2. Good ideas! I like to take breaks too-helps recharge...Glad you're back!

  3. I found a couple of tips in your list that are helpful. I need to keep a notebook. So many times I get an idea and a few days later it is gone...forgotten. I tend to just let each day bring a blog post.

  4. Hello Dee,
    I tear out old pages of ideas and scribbles, and put them in a folder that I look at later. I like the way that system sifts the good stuff, on lists year after year.
