Here I am watching Julie and Julia and I decided that I needed to do something to keep me blogging everyday. I am thinking about blogging on the movies that I watch, but if anyone else has any other ideas, I would like to hear them. Maybe if I had multiple things to write about, I would be able to keep up with this. I don’t do a lot of interesting things in my life to write about everyday.
So hopefully I will be able to figure out something. Hope to hear some suggestions soon!

Why don’t you write your fan fiction here? Part of a chapter every day or so? I’m interested in reading it….
The Star Wars one?
Why not? I thought that is what you wanted to do….
THAT WOULD BE SO AWESOME! I’d be sure to read! Love me some SW fan-fic or any thing you have to share!
When I was blogging every day, I would do movie and tv show reviews, write about my family or pets, or I would write about interesting / funny / sad news stories I read about since I’m a headline junkie. I’ve stopped writing as much, mostly due to time constraints, not for lack of material – I have about 20 drafts waiting to be written without the time to write them. I’ve found that I can take anything from my daily life, no matter how boring, and write about it and people will comment. Then again, I find daily life interesting; if I found it boring, I probably wouldn’t want to write about it and if I did, it might be boring for others to read. Maybe it is boring for them to read, but no one’s said anything… But anyway, the blog is mostly for me – it’s a family diary of sorts, a log of these years when the kids are growing up, and a place for me to give my opinions on anything I want – a place to vent feelings without worrying about seeking out a listening ear or being judged.
For you, I think you should write about your pets, your work, and I think the fan fiction is a good idea too. I also have written about animals – I would choose a species and research it; this way I got to share my fascination with animals and learn about them at the same time. I would love to hear about your summer (summers?) as a zoo teen! Or you could write about your faith… Life as a newlywed… Good luck, and I’m looking forward to hearing from you more often! 🙂
I’m afraid I can’t give you valid suggestions on blogging every day seeing as I am lucky to get one out once a week! I suppose all it really takes is a want to write, and you will think of something each day, even if it’s a post about how you have blogger writer’s block.
Definitely the fanfic, or any short story ideas. Funny stories from when we were kids. What the cats are doing right now. I have an iGoogle page (If you have gmail, you have a page. Email me for directions.) and I have a quote of the day. Perhaps something like that would inspire you?
I have several ideas of my own, but the want to write just isn’t there so much these days sadly. Something will change eventually though and I will write more again. No gmail account for me at the moment.
But this is about you- you write, I’ll read. 🙂
