Nothing to write about . . .

I've struggled to find time for blogging lately.  Today, I actually had a little free time, so I dat down with my computer and . . . . . NOTHING!  I suppose this is what's called writer's block.  I just couldn't think of anything interesting to write about.  I follow some blogs where the authors write at least 3-5 times a week.  Their posts are always interesting, but for the life of me I can't figure out where they find the time or the topics!

Attempting to remedy my blockage, I browsed through several other mommy-type blogs to see what others were writing about.  Then, I did what any reasonable person in this age of technology would do - I searched Google.  I typed in "how to find something to blog about."  There were a couple things that seemed to be repeated suggested:

1) Re-posting old posts (Just did that here - at least I'm doing something right!)
2) Daily topics - Things such as Wordless Wednesday, Friday week-in-review posts, etc.
3) Answering reader questions/finding out what others want to read about.

So, here is where I combine those last two suggestions:  What would you, lovely readers, like to read about?  What are some of your favorite posts that I have written?  Do you like the daily topics (i.e. same topic every Thursday) or do you find that overdone & boring?  Do you have questions you would like me to answer?  What do you like or dislike about my blog (be honest, it's o.k.)?

I'd love to hear from you!  Seriously.  I need some help here!  Leave me a comment and help me get past the writer's block!  Thanks bunches!!!!!

Oh, I struggle with this problem, too! Especially during the school year when we aren't doing different things and I worry about boring people with another soccer or hockey post! Frankly, I just enjoy reading your writing - I thought this blog post was great! I'm also a fan of the posts featuring your beautiful girls... but my favorite post of yours recently was the one about your poor, skunked dog!

Thanks, Martha! What I love to write most is about my girls and our family happenings. Sometimes, though, it seems there is nothing happening that is really worthy of a blog post. Then I feel like I am grasping at straws trying to pull something out of nothing. Guess I'll just have to wait for something exciting to happen!! (Hopefully no another skunk!) Thanks for your input!
