Do you enjoy reading blogs that feature topics of interest? What topics do you find interesting? Do you have a list of friends who blog? What’s your blogging purpose?
These are valid questions as I contemplate what I’m going to write about today. I’m also thinking about a new direction I’m going to take with my own writing. I guess you could say I’m bouncing ideas around with you guys.
Right now in my Feedly I have a few topics going of blogs I am interested in reading at the moment: Blog Mommas, Church, Politics, Psychology, Random, Christian, Fitness, Fostering, Friends, and Technical.
Blog Mommas – This is a list of all the blogs listed on Blog Mommas who actively blog. Believe it or not, I am reading your blogs. I may not always leave a comment but you can surely count on the fact that I am reading.
Church – This is a list of all the blogs by people who go to my church. I love this list because it gives me a chance to see what people are up to and what they’re passionate about. I also like to list blogs by people in leadership at church.
Politics – This is a list of all the people I’m connected to who write about what’s going on in the world. If you follow the political movements in this country, and I’m connected to you, I’m probably very interested in what you think of the current political climate. I also enjoy reading blogs by people in talk radio.
Psychology – Yep, I’m a fan of blogs and bloggers who write about the brain, how it works, and why people do what they do. If you can learn more about what makes us tick and how to solve behavioral issues, you will have a lot more knowledge and peace in your world. Believe it or not, there is a reason why people behave poorly, and with every challenge there is a solution. Without that knowledge I would find myself pretty stuck, and if you know me well, I am not one to stay stuck. So yeah, these type of blogs interest me greatly.
Random – This is a list of blogs by people who I find interesting. There is no rhyme or reason to this list. These are just blogs that have sparked something in me to just read them. Reading random blogs about anything can be fun!
Christian – This would be my list of people who blog that I may never meet face-to-face, I love their ministry, and they write about things that bring me closer to God.
Fitness – Yep, I subscribe to blogs that teach me more about fitness. This is how I get my exercise routines and find new healthy recipes to try. I also enjoy reading about the frustrations and successes of someone’s weight loss journey. If you’re struggling with weight loss, and you have health issues, sometimes it can be a good thing to encourage one another. I just love to see people succeeding at something I’ve had such a hard time with, so yeah, if you’re trying to lose weight, I’m probably going to follow your blog.
Fostering – This topic is near and dear to my heart. I am a foster parent so I do want to read blogs by other foster parents. I have contemplated writing about this topic myself. Maybe one day I will.
Friends – This is my blog list of my friends. These are people who blog who I consider to be my friend. I am always interested in what’s going on in your lives. I may not always have a chance to read your posts as you are writing them but I do hit this one first. I just love my friends.
Technical – This is my blog list of all things technical. If there is a platform I use on my computer or my device, I am probably going to follow your blog. For example: My Fitness Pal, Blogspot, Wordpress, Twitter, or Instagram. Because these are applications I use, I want to know what the developers are coming up with, or if there are any major changes coming down the pike.
