Each week I do a number of things, one of which is writing a post for my blog. I make it a point to keep some portion of the post about writing. The rest of the article can be about most anything. I try to keep it interesting and usually lean toward humor. You would be fascinated at the daily goings on that seem so lackluster and still make for intriguing reading.
Look out of your window and without knowing it, you will see a plethora of topics, natural and otherwise, to spin into an article that will catch the average eye.
For instance, the seasons can bring post after post, ranging from weather, summer vegetables, the colors of fall, or winter travel in the snow and ice.
Human nature, and especially the hardware we use today to engage in social media, none more engaging than the cell phone, can be used as fodder for a blog article.
How simple things in the past such as writing with Quill pens, to typewriters, and today’s computers, progressed through the ages.
In short, most any topic can be carefully woven into an interesting story that will entertain.
As I sit here pondering the subject matter of this week’s blog, there are several themes I am considering. I like to make my posts entertaining, humorous, and pertinent to life in the 21st century. Some subjects broach the outer limits of these ideals, but that’s what occasionally incorporates humor into the article.
Although I’m not fond of penning a serious blog, they are necessary from time to time. Life does not rotate around a center of fun, but with the shape of our world today and man’s inhumanity to man the necessity becomes self-evident.
I suppose this is why I choose to interject satire into what I write.
The explosion in technology over the past thirty years can be an interesting, if not overwhelming, topic. It literally depicts a micro-evolution not unlike moving from the stone age to the bronze age. I can only wonder, with some trepidation, where we will find ourselves in the next tech revolution? A quote from Jeff Goldblum in the movie, Jurassic Park, states, “Just because we can, doesn’t mean we should.” Perhaps we ought to pay closer attention to this quote as we develop the next technological breakthrough.
It seems I have completed my blog using said blog as the subject matter. Take care and have a great week!
