I sit on my couch with my netbook in my lap. My cat keeps trying to sit in my lap and seems confused by this plastic thing in the way. I have tried to think of something to blog about so I am resorting to the worst sort of blog post, a post about blogging.
I think there are four main types of blog. You have the corporate blog. These exist for the synergising of brand awareness… or something else made up. I avoid these like the plague. There is the pro bloggers. People who are an expert in a field and tend to write on that subject. A couple of examples from my own blog feeds, a blog on woodworking by a professional woodworker, and a blog by a tech writer about laptops. Thirdly are the theme blogs. Blogs about politics or discussing a specific type of news story. Think of blogs with an agenda. And finally my favorite type of blog, the personal blog. I read a lot of personal blogs. Most of them are about expats living outside their home country. This provides them with a nice exciting hook.
As I have returned to blogging I often wonder if my life is worthy of being written about. Seeing as I spend most of my time at a sports bar, probably not :). Don’t worry I plan to keep blogging. It’s not really that I don’t have topics to blog. Mostly I need to find the will to do it. I can easily find the time. And perhaps the desire to blog will help me do something more interesting than just watching every single Blackhawks game.
