30 Days of Gratitude…Day 18…

How I get Topics for my Blog….


When I first started blogging, I wondered how I would find enough things to write about.

In every day life, I’m not even that much of a talker,

but if you need some one who will listen, I’m your girl.

In fact, a lot of the topics I blog about, are based on my life long practice of meditation and spirituality, when I originally intended this blog to be about decorating.

Though I believe our spirit and our homes are connected in the most intimate ways.

Here is what I’ve discovered….

Reading Facebook and other blogs will often spring forth an idea or call out a question that needs to be answered.

Projects that I’m working on like crafts, cooking, decorating, and DIY

I will have a dream that sparks an idea.  It’s a good idea to keep a notepad and pen next to the bed.

I might observe a behavior in someone and find a way to relate it to myself.

Reflecting on what is dwelling in my own mind will sometimes point the way.

Just observing what is happening in my own life and how I’m handling things often makes me want to share my highs and lows, my victories and my mistakes.

Some of the deepest conversations, the ones with God, my angels, and guides, will inspire me to do some automatic writing.

Those are the posts that seem to strike a chord, or bring about some healing for some of my readers.

Even meditation on a topic will inspire how to write it and what I need to say in a much more profound way than if I had just kind of “surface” thought it.

If I get an idea and don’t write it down right away, I might lose some of the content that I’d thought of.

Brainstorming topics and making a list for future use.


I’ve only been blogging for a little more than a year and have so much to learn, especially on the technical side.

After having written almost 100 blog posts, I’m finally getting an idea what my purpose in blogging is all about .

I love blogging.  I love being able to speak my mind and at the same time help other people.

We are such multi-faceted beings, and blogging is a way to share a bigger piece of ourselves with the rest of the world.

Blogging is a very intimate form of communication, and even though our words go out into cyber-space, it’s fascinating to be able to reach others all the way around the world, and to be able to feel their essence.

I’m grateful to be able to share this opportunity with so many others. Thank you.

Keep Calm and Blog On…..Lorna

How many of us long for our own comfy cottage in the woods? I know I do! We can make our own comfy cottage, right here, right now, no matter where we live. I'm a mother of two, grandmother of two boys, interior designer who thinks out-of-the-box, up cycler, and interested in just about anything related to living comfortably and finding contentment, connecting with the Great Spirit in the natural world and respect for all beings who walk the earth.

  1. Lorna, I adore you. Even though we have never met or spoke in person, only through blogging, I feel such a connection and understanding to you. This post feels like a duplication of what I would say or write. I completely understand what you are saying. Thank you for liking one of my post and giving me the opportunity to call you my “blogging friend”. Robin

  2. Many have suggested that I blog, or ‘tell my story’. I feel that I am still too full of hurt and anger, too much cynicism, and too many barbed words. I’ll probably stick with my attempts to journal, which isn’t very consistent, but I continue, trying to heal. Your blog, Lorna, is so uplifting and encouraging. It is also giving me an opportunity to get reacquainted with my cousin, living so far apart. ❤

    1. You have been sort of blogging on FB You have a great sense of humor and a writing style that a lot of people relate to. You already have a following. The next step if you are moved to would be to blog. Just be your self. You already know what to do. I am so thankful to get your feedback, to get an idea of how my words affect others. It’s all a journey, and it’s not the end result that is the best part. The best part is in taking the journey to heal. Maybe that is your gift to share. Let the hurt, anger, cynicism, and barbed words come. Your tribe will get it. Have no fear. Much love, Lora


      1. Wow. Thank you, Lorna. Sometimes, I do worry about what others will think of what I post on FB. But, then I remember, that’s ego talking. Go ahead and be myself, warts and all. Otherwise, I’m not being true to myself and doing no one, especially myself, any favors.
