Is it me or is this blog BORING?

August 22, 2006

Nope I really don’t think it is me. I think I could have lost my “Joie de Blog”.

All it seems to be is questions and memes and the odd pre menstrual rant thrown in for good measure. What it isn’t is good reading. I am surprised that people keep coming back here. I think I might have given up a while ago if I were you. But I am glad that I am not because well, I really like the fact that you come here.

So I have noticed that some people, when they get to this point, think ah, perhaps it is time to hang up my blogging hat for a while and take a rest and have a little blogging break. But i don’t really want to do that. Because when I was on holiday I missed blogging but when I came back I was busy (again!) and I have slipped back into my old habits. Damn those comfortable-as-old-cotton-pyjamas habits.

So dear readers, I need your help.

Instead of taking a break I want to try and write something everyday. But I need some rules. So this is my plan.

I will post everyday, including high days and holidays!

I am not allowed to post answers to set questions (like Friday Feast or The Friday Five)

I am not allowed to post any memes.

I am not allowed to post any survey type things for example “What colour crayon would I be?”

I have to write about something that someone has requested I write about or something that I have been inspired to post about after reading something somewhere.

I am allowed pictures but every post must be at least 50 words.

So………….I need your help people. Can you pop into the comments section and let me know if there is anything that you would like me to write about. But please no questions as I will not be allowed to answer those. More like “tell us about…..”

Or just leave a comment telling me that this is a silly idea and I am going mad. Remember I am doing this for you. I don’t ahve to read this drivel!!!

    Maybe just write about what you find amusing. Like something you see at the store, or what someone said at work.

    That’s a lot of blog pressure.
    Should it not be whatever makes you happy/catches your interest??

    I have gone through the same, I tend to post less often and when I have something interesting to say! I am sure you will find a happy medium! 🙂

    I still enjoy reading!

    I think your blog is fine. Post what you want, the blog is for you, we are simply voyageurs.

    I actually find certain meme quite interesting.
