Post 26 ~ In which Teresa changes her mind yet again

Yes, I have a special fondness for A.A. Milne's lovely Winnie the Pooh books.

I see it's been an entire month since I said something on this blog. It's not my fault; it was the Woozles' fault. No, wait; it is my fault. Isn't there a blame fairy who can wave a wand and absolve me?

Although I'm not so deluded as to think that there's anyone actually waiting for me to post something (I had 6+ years to build up a following in my other blog and nobody's there waiting for me to post anything either), if anyone is really dying to read something from me, s/he can always hop over to my regular blog http://homesteadnotes.blogspot.com/ that I actually update more than once a month. It has nothing to do writing or art, although it does have a lot to do with the other equally important things in my life, such as what to name our tractor.

But what is my change of mind? Well, I've thought about it for a while now (nearly three freakin' months), and decided that you don't need, and probably don't want, to hear my opinions on different writers and agents' blogs. I'll bring up ones I come across and love as I come across them. If I don't love them, I won't bring them up. Simple!

However, I think any good blog/website needs to "give" something to readers, whether it be killer content - Nathan Bransford's blog is a fine example of this - or in-depth and specific useful content, such as Jim Kelly's website where he analyzes his writing for would-be writers.

I just don't know yet what I can give the readers that is unique and desirable. I've decided, of course, that it wasn't blog/website reviews. So, what now?  Maybe you can tell me? What would you like to see here?

Just to remind myself that life is not all about wringing my hands and writing-fails, I want to mention that I won another haiku contest from WildBird Magazine on Twitter:
It's a terrific addition to our huge collection of bird guides.  Go follow editor Amy if you're on Twitter and like birds or fun writing contests.  :)

How about your thoughts on current events? Existential thinking? The latest on your novels and stories? I just started following, so I'm game for anything. :-D

I'll take any brain farts you care to share. Or not share.

Kat and Epi, you two are funny! But neither of those things are very exciting or informative. ;) Existential thinking? I can start quoting Nietzsche or Sartre, maybe...hah!

CONGRATS, Teresa! You are rocking out with the Haiku!!

And seriously, do any of us really know what we should be writing about on our blogs? (Well, maybe some of us do but I'm constantly convinced I'm "doing it wrong." ;o) Anyhoo, I just like to "read" your voice. So...just...say what you need to say. (Wait, is that a song?)
