Here’s the thing: I never really have had any trouble coming up with something to write about. I do reviews and memes, and then I do my eBook Wednesdays posts. eWednesdays are my new feature for my blog; I’ve only done two of them so far, but it’s one of my favorite things to do and I’m definitely going to keep at it!
I don’t remember exactly how I came up with eBook Wednesdays. I think it was a mixture of wanting to have a new feature, plus my extreme interest in ebooks and the future of electronic publishing and reading. I wanted to write more about it, and thus: eBook Wednesdays!
I have about a bazillion topics I want to write about for eWednesdays, and actually I have a tougher time picking one thing. What I do is keep a list of all the subjects I think of that relate to electronic publishing, and then when I need something to write about I pick from that. It’s pretty easy for me to keep adding items onto that list, mainly because I try and keep up with what’s happening in the ebook world. There’s nearly always something new happening, be it free ebook giveaways or some new reader or what have you. The writing topics just seem to keep popping up, really.
(I do this same list-keeping with books I’m reviewing, too. I keep track of different feelings and thoughts and interesting things that pop up while I’m reading, and then use that list to help me write my review. They’ve come in quite handy, especially if i get stuck somewhere.)
The main thing I’m worried about now is being sure to encourage conversation and input from anyone who reads eWednesdays posts. I’m trying to maintain a balance of my own opinion and allowing room for other people’s, but, er, I don’t know how well I’m succeeding. Still, I’ve made Improvement my middle name and I aim to live up to it! I’m sure by the end of this year I’ll be the queen at writing about, uh. My own opinions. Ha!
