1000 blogs over 3600 photos, and over 2½ years later, Under The Pecan Tree is still going strong.
This was the name of my first blog page I started here on WordPress, three years ago. Original my blogs supposed to be about my garden and the wildlife that visits my yard. But after three months, I ran out of writing ideas. So I gave that blog up. About a year later, I started another blog named “The Barefoot Garden Fairy”. But after two months, I’ve got bored with that as well. It was like starting a journal and then after a few pages in, I neglected it.
On New Years Day 2017, I began this blog page and told myself I have to stay focused. But I also have to change some things, if I want to keep “Under The Pecan Tree” running steadily. I decided, I use this page more as a diary. I love to write about daily things, which cross my path. This would include gardening, hiking, traveling, photography, kids’ activities, my creative side, etc. Finally I found what I was looking for in a blog. Over 14 months later, I still keep writing almost every day about my “adventures”. And I still enjoy it.
The moral of this story: If you run out of ideas to blog, try something different. Maybe the page needs a new name. Be creative, and don’t give up writing. Our interests change over the years as well. What was fun yesterday, might not be as interesting today.
