That has to be one of the most common questions I get when it comes to blogs.
How do you come up with things to write about?
I can’t speak for my colleagues here at the Daily Globe, because we are all different.
But I can speak for me.
And sometimes, yes, it is difficult.
I write so much for different things that sometimes a blog is the last thing I want to do.
And yet, for me, there’s something soothing about blogging.
In a profession where we are surrounded by bad news, sometimes it’s nice to write about something else. It’s nice to share a funny story or light-hearted situation.
But that doesn’t answer the question.
To be perfectly honest, it’s amazing on what I have written blogs about. They have ranged from family and friends to events I have participated in to current events.
Being a former sports editor here at the Globe, often my blogs have leaned toward the sports field.
But that’s what’s fun about blogs, they are unique. Each person has their own with what they are free to do what they choose.
Some people outside of the Globe’s walls use blogs for other reasons. Some are devoted to a specific topic. Others are used for business. And some are used to promote an agenda of some sort.
Here, the staff blogs are nothing more than to allow us a chance to interject our personalities in the newspaper.
As part of the Social Media Breakfast Club here in Worthington, we will be giving a presentation on blogging. Everyone is welcome to join us at 8 a.m. Wednesday at BenLees. The event is free, but pre-registration is required. To register, contact Julie Foote at firstname.lastname@example.org.
