You know, I see you all blogging. I really need to blog (haven't since Jan) but I never know what to write. I kinda feel that I say everything I need to say in the weekly newsletter here.

What do you all blog about? How do you keep it interesting and fresh?

Umm.. I pretty much only blog my LO's and kit previews. I don't feel like my personal life is that exciting to share. Same with FB -- I don't share much. hehe

I feel the same way with my blog. Nothing exciting. I do share a lot on fb, but only on my personal page, not fan page.

I find myself not using my blog much either. I only seem to get there when I have something new to release and then I try to coordinate with a freebie. I've actually thought about giving up the blog all together now that everyone seems to be on Facebook. I can do the same things on my Facebook Fan page as I can do on my blog and I think people interact more than they do on our blogs because it's easier to leave a comment or simply "like" but I'm torn as to whether to do that or not.

I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling this way!

Y'all are talking about giving up your blogs and I am working on getting my 3rd one up and running! :36_1_37: (Can you say nerd) They each serve different audiences and I do struggle sometimes with what to write. I am building a plan and am working mostly on getting them ready for when I have a bit more time to devote to them. Right now I do good to write on each one once or twice a week.

For my digiscrap blog right now I am doing research so I can write a few more posts about using Gimp. Plus of course I love sharing other peoples stuff! One of the easiest posts you can write is just a quick list of a few things that caught your eye while surfing! Or for designers - you could do posts of layouts in your gallery that caught your idea. People love to be recognized for their work! I do tend to agree with you that Facebook has made it very easy to do a lot of the same things. But there really are still tons of people reading blogs every day. I actually found digi-scrapping not quite a year ago after finding out about blogs in April. One of the homeschool blogs I was reading was talking about digi-scrapping and I looked into it and fell in love! :)

So I think blogs can be an important part of networking but they are definitely more time consuming than say Facebook or Twitter! :)

Anyhow - I think you've inspired a future post Shannon. Maybe I'll call it "Things Shannon could blog about" - what do you think? I'll be sure to come back and link you up when its done!

Yes - blog about me and not knowing what to blog about. Then I'll blog about you doing that and we can create a giant circle...lol
