I should have celebrated my last blog post. It was the 100th, and since I never thought I'd write that many, I really should have noticed. But I didn't. Also, with the end of the year drawing close, there were many more things to take care of. So, when I opened my blog today, to finally get going on my New Year resolution, blogger told me that I would now be writing my 101th blog post. So with that, I welcome (back) all readers near and far. May 2011 be gentle to you.
On New Year's eve, I decided to improve my blog and I spent hours thinking about the how-to. There are many things I'm interested in, but I wasn't too sure if my readers would enjoy the same things. Finally, I realized that I could ask. Stupid of me, really. I have seen other people ask on their blogs but never realized I could do, too. That's the old "control-freak" sneaking up on my again when I thought I had defeated him last year. ;-)
So, here we go. I know that I won't be able to write a blog post every day. As much as I would like to do that, it just can't be done. With the sort of family I have, I can probably manage two or three posts a week - at least that's what I am aiming for. Now, for the subjects:
- I have a degree in forestry and a PhD in science. Should I write regularly about a subject of science (biology, ecology, even chemistry, physics or math) if I promise not to make it boring?
- Also, I'm a foster mother of two children with handicaps. Anyone interested in how my family copes with that? I've learned some neat little tricks in the last 8 years.
- My writing is good enough that I am agented (in German at least). I know the ins and outs of my trade, and I'm really good at plotting. Shall I write about writing?
- I have noticed that there are many good blogs and websites "out there" (no, not the universe, the Internet). How about writing reviews of those sites as a sort of road map ("How to find what you're looking for")?
If you would like me to write about something you think I might know anything about, leave me a comment. If you want one of my suggestions, please leave me the numbers in a comment. My plan is to have a structure before the end of the month and schedule some posts that will hopefully interest many readers.
Join me on this journey and please help,
