30 Blog Post Ideas (Part 1 of 4)

Can't think of anything to blog about? Try one of these:

1. Write a list of funny things your kids have said.
2. Do a series of short stories about your relationship with your significant other. How did you meet? How did you feel about him/her when you laid eyes on them? Were you attracted to them or wished they'd drop off the planet--what changed your mind?
3. Make a list of your favorite sites and why.
4. Personify an object or situation.
5. Keep a 24 hour journal... post it the next day.
6. Make a happy/sad list.
7. List things that you find strange.... like pink flamingos in front yards.
8. Write an essay from the theme- 'the written word is my drug of choice.'
9. Create a photo series theme. Such as 'The Understated.'
10. Write a story in 50 words.
11. Make a to-do list.
12. Write a love-letter to your favorite object. (your computer)
13. List 15 books that have stuck with you.
14. Create a photographic alphabet. Use poladroid or picnik to alter the pictures to your taste.
15. Write a poem.
16. Create a newspaper article about yourself.
17. Describe a moment in your life with an illustrated photo.
18. Confess something (nothing to confessional.... something like 'I'm actually a Democrat' or 'I don't really like Christmas').
19. Create a discussion topic for your commenter's (this is best done on Friday's when your readers have all weekend to talk about it).
20. Use a recurring theme. Monthly theme's (that change every month and you can fall back on), daily theme's (Tuesday tell-all, wordless Wednesday, funny Friday).
21. Write an advertisement for yourself.
22. Discuss why people should read your blog.
23. Compose a letter to your readers thanking them and encouraging them to spread the word.
24. Write an entire post without using the letter 'L.'
25. Make a photo-journal titled 'A Day in the Life of _____"
26. Discuss--in a educated, controlled manner--a political situation.
27. Make a post out of what would have been a comment. Link to the blog you're commenting about.
28. Tell your readers what your favorite chore is and why.
29. Retell your first memory.
30. Write about the scariest moment in your life. Write about the happiest moment.

All great ideas! All yours? I am always impressed that you keep it fresh and full of new literary ideas, instead of the same old chit chat.

Why thank you. I think I get bored of the 'same ol' chit chat' so I imagine everyone else does too.

I so needed this. I'm starring this in my reader. I will be referring to this for many posts to come. I get so stuck on what to blog about besides my kids.

Altered Shoe Art: Ring Holder Shoe Tutorial

This was my week two craft for So You Think You're Crafty. I placed third that week for this one. I thought you might enjoy finding out how I made it.


I tried about a million different decorations before settling on one that didn't drown out my rings. I wanted them to the focal point. This is also why I went with black fabric and not something more vivid.

Don't be intimidated by the lack of 101 I'm giving you. It really is a straight forward sort of project. If you know how to use a glue gun without burning yourself you can do this. Just be sure to dust off your imaginative brain space first. :)

The one important thing you might be wondering is how I got the pink fabric to stick to the shoe. I really just Mod Podged it on.

There are several different ways to make ring tubes that you can find online. One I saw used that colored foam paper stuff that you find in the kids craft section. I thought that might have been easier, but I had scraps of batting lying around so I …

How-To Pretend You Work For Anthropologie

The problem with Anthropologie is that they cost way too much money. WAY TOO MUCH! I mean, come on--these book boxes:

Cost $68-$188!

Do you have that kind of money?

I don't, but you know what I do have? I have a library with a cart full of free books that no one really cares about! So guess what I did... I made my own (and then I gave them away because I really don't have anywhere to put them).

Here's how.

I Am A Phoenix

This is a drawing I did right after my divorce, when I was trying to discover my life's course and who I was as a person. Divorce is this horrendously nasty thing that leaves a person with little to nothing of who they were before (at least that's how it was for me). My family was gone, at one point I had counted up blood/legal relatives that had stopped talking to me and it was nearly 60. Things were bad, but one of the recurring comments I heard from other divorcee's was 'Get bitter, or get better.' So I aimed for better. I came up with my own personal code of conduct (Quiet Dignity) and my own personal motto.

The motto the drawing is based off of is: 
"I am a Phoenix. I was born for the fire and I will rise from the ashes."
But, that's not all. Each aspect of the drawing has meaning. I researched these... so I hope I got them right. lol
I chose to make my image reminiscent of a mandala with the most significant parts at the very center. The shape i…
