What shall I post today?
This is a major preoccupation with every blogger.
How do we decide what to post?
Sometimes events take us up and we post something that happened to us.
A good example of this is Dr Rob's ill- fated trip to the hairdresser.
Dr Joolz takes a lot of inspiration from Flickr and this makes her blog very visual which I love.
Anya explores digital affordances and responds to what she does and sees which is great.
Sometimes we get ideas from each other, and I think that is what memes are.
I tend to think about my blog on the train, and write down my ideas in a little notebook Dr Joolz got me.
Sometimes I wake up and think about my blog before anything else (is that sad).
Blogs occupy an interesting space, as they weave in and out of our daily lives and preoccupations.
Sometimes I follow a train of thought or a pattern.
Do we plan our posts?
Or are they more random, and depend upon the ephemera of the everyday?
I think of my blog structure a bit like beads on a chain but sometimes I switch chains.
What do you think?
