Blogging: A is for Angle

What is your angle?
{And, I don't mean degrees}

When I say angle, I mean approach, outlook, perspective, viewpoint, etc.
 What is your blog about?  Do you write about only one topic, or is your blog a collection of several different topics?  Do you write about what you want to write about {about what you love}, or do you write about what your readers want to see {about topics that are popular at that point in time}?

If you have looked over my blog, you know that I write about several topics, including: life, love, religion, health & fitness, and food.  I am considered a "general" blogger.  I blog about what I want to {what I love}, and I enjoy doing it!

I believe you must write about what you love {or like}.  I think you have to enjoy what you are doing, otherwise your posts will come across as strained, and your readers will see this.

What do you blog about?
{Leave me a comment & let me know!}

By the way, Happy April Fool's Day!

Good question! As a horror/paranormal author, I blog about monsters. I ♥ monsters!

Rekha said...

My blogs are; one for photos that I find clickable and the other focuses on writing experiments, book reviews, poetry and some random humourous thoughts or rants.
I do go with the flow sometimes, and join blogfests for fun even a odd tag meme or two.
They reflect my interest or passion just as your blog reflects the areas that interest you.

Happy April Fool's Day. Look at us April fools doing the crazy A-Z.

Thanks for visiting. I've followed you and will be looking forward to more of your posts.

What do I blog about? Writing and flash fiction mainly but I have a Paris blog which is my indulgence.

My blog is all about books and anything bookish. I write reviews of everything I read, plus doing the odd meme and discussion posts.

Diantha Jones said...

I write about Books and being an Indie Author mostly, though the A to Z challenge is giving me the opportunity to expand on that even though the theme is related to my book, Prophecy of the Most Beautiful!

This is my first blog and I think I will write about what I want to write about. Expect stories about family (including 'animal' family) and perhaps some musing...or rantings on the ways of the world.

Beth Zimmerman said...

Returning your visit. (Thank you!) I'm a *lifestyle, faith-based* blogger which covers a wide range of topics. Mostly I just follow whatever trail my muse chooses to take me on each day. :)

Cassam said...

My blog is about life in general, some posts are about things that happened when I was younger as I want to leave my grandchildren with a memoir of my life.

Buffy Armstrong said...

I write about faeries and creatures of lore. Sometimes I write about writing. Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Barbara said...

I, much like you Kayla, write about my life and my faith. Occasionally I jump on a bandwagon. I write what I want to how I want to and hope others find it interesting, amusing or inspiring. ~ Barbara

Funny in My Mind said...

I mostly blog about the funny things that happen to me and my life in general. I throw in fashion too, for fun.

Brittany TYD said...

My "angle" centers around general, but branches into love, faith and work.

I don't know how interesting it is, but I notice that people connect more with my vulnerable posts than ones where I discuss current, popular events.

Courtney B said...

LOVE this question! My blog is pretty much my journal! I just write about me and the hubs... I'm so grateful to have a space to document our adventures and have pictures to go along with the stories :)

Anna said...

Great question, and great way to kick off the challenge! totally understand the headache too, I get migraines. icky!

I blog about everyday art in all sorts of forms, cooking, gardening, photography, DIY projects, upcycled art/crafts, my kid, my dogs, my life, spirituality... okay you catch the drift... I basically blog about most things that excite me, and I wrapped it all up and called it "art"

nifty, eh? Thanks for posting :-)

Dave said...

I blog about acting, writing and increasingly directing, but also writing about things I like has changed the nature of what I write.

I blog about everything and anything XD also, thank you for your comment, and yes I have much more about Amanda and the 13 sisters, on letter J and G there is characters part of this world also. I am dedicating this challenge about this time of my life and imagination of that story.

good luck on the chalange!

jnana said...

I'm a general blogger too, but I guess there is a specific style to the kinds of posts I write, just can't put my finger on it!

Anna Tan said...

I write about a lot of random things, but I'd say that most of these centre around flashfiction, faith and books.
And maybe some personal updates when I'm feeling guilty about not blogging ;)

Angi said...

I'm also a general blogger. I blog about life, recipes, homeschool, kids, and anything else that comes to mind.

Lisa Campbell said...

I'm like you, a general blogger, but naturally, it tends to be about me and my family, artistic things I do, and honestly, anything that I want. I do believe in having a sincere interest in what I write and blogging about things that matter. You can only read so many posts on products and other fluff before you long for something with substance. I'm excited for the rest of your a to z posts.

I'm a fragmented blogger I guess...I have multiple blogs for multiple topics.

One is our main blog, about our daily life as we travel the country in our RV and ride our Harleys for fun.

One is our pup's blog, Sadie has a lot of followers.

One is my writing blog where I post flash fiction, short stories, excerpts and some ramblings related to writing.

One is our blog as we slowly take our raw land to a site for our RV and eventually our log cabin.

One is for our planned Route 66 ride, now scheduled for fall of 2013 (when I will be 66).

And one is for general miscellaneous posts and guest blogs (some advertising blog posts from time to time).

Phew! Well, you asked.....LOL!
