What To Blog About

Why am I always at a loss as to what to blog about? It comes so easily to some of you. Care to share some secrets?
I wanted to mention the treasury that I'm a part of right now. My butterfly purse/zipper pull is in it.
WHY do my photos always come out sideways???? I don't have a clue how to turn them around! I don't use picassa anymore because it slows down my computer. Anyone.....I mean ANYONE who can help me with this, I'd appreciate it!!
Now, back to what I was saying.......what was I saying? I'm so forgetful these days! I guess it's that O.L.D. that's taking over my body! LOL
Yes, I have a problem knowing what to blog about. But here I have a wonderful treasury that I've been privileged to be a part of. Let's see if I can get a shot and show it to you.......don't go away!
I can't believe it didn't come out sideways!! Anyway...didn't she do a great job? (Applause!!) My friend Deb (Wuglyees) has her beautiful necklace next to me too! Here is where I have another problem. I have NO idea how to put her item in my blog!!

Well, look what I did!! Sorry it's as big as it is, but at least it's there!

So as you can see, I really need help and suggestions. You got any?

Thanks in advance! I hope SOMEONE actually reads this post.


  1. I have that problem too that I just don't know what to blog about or I just don't have time OR the story is not so long and I just end up posting to Facebook ;)
    About the pic being sideways. I'm not 100% sure whats the problem there but I think it could be that when you take a pic with your camera you point it downwards and maybe tilt a little and the camera doesn't quite know which way the pic should be and just puts in portrait not landscape. You just need to find a decent enough app that wont be too much for your computer and will let you rotate your images. I'm sorry but I can't be of any help here since I only use Photoshop.
    I actually dislike the pic posting here on blogger because every time it puts the pics on top of my blog post and I just have to drag them where I want them to be in the text. So frustrating when you have lots of pics!!!

  2. The joys of blogging, LOL! I don't know what to say half the time either! I think Mariann mite have hit on the sideway pic problem. I wanted to add: When placing pics in your blog, just click (like you are going to type) then add the pic in that position. Hope that helps. I also use the pic program that came with my computer, it should have an arrow on the bottom that will allow you to turn your pics around.(my program is live gallery)

  3. Hey!!!! Look what you blogged about!! And YAY! You shared it with me!!!...Oh Cindy, I wish I knew how to help you. I've been trying to share what I know with my friend who just started her own blog! (It's a beautiful one too!)
    We worked on it a little yesterday, but she has it pretty much figured out, and she's much faster than me!!...My computer practically does everything itself. I just click "yes I do" or "No I don't". I have one of those "Computers for dummies"! LOL...As to content, just stop thinking that everything you find interesting is going to be boring! Because it's not!!! I look forward to seeing what's on that funny mind of yours!! And I'll be waiting!

  4. The photos might try an online tool vs. something downloaded and running on your machine which you say slows it down. Perhaps try this site . You can just sign up and use the "free" functions which are adequate. I have used it in the past and it has been recommended on etsy. Good Luck!

  5. Mariann, I appreciate the suggestion! I never thought about it being the way I photograph them! Wow! Guess I'll be paying a bit more attention from now on, won't I!!
    I know what you mean about the frustration of adding photos. It's a pain!! They need to come up with an easier way for sure!

  6. Thanks Debi! Sure is nice to know I'm not alone here! LOL Yep, that could be the pic problem! I'll have to work on it a bit more for sure.

  7. Thanks Wug!!! You are such an encouragement! The photo issue is my worst enemy for sure. But I think you're right about writing about what interests me. Maybe there's others out there that think like I do! LOL (Heaven forbid!!) I'll check out Spanishlullabies too!

  8.'ve hit the nail on the head!! I already have used picnik in the past, but totally forgot about it! Thanks so much for the suggestion and the reminder!

  9. Cindy, do you use Windows? When you view a picture in My Pictures or Media Center you can change the direction. Last year, I spent an entire day putting up my vacation blog, it was a challenge! Took umpteen attempts to coordinate photos with text!!! I love reading blogs, good reflexion of the soul. Finding sooo many fascinating people on facebook has overtaken my blogging days, for now, but if you'd like to read some ancient history ;)....

  10. Thanks for the suggestion RockMeGently! I appreciate that. It will take a bit of work for sure to get those photos right.

  11. You should have been with Deb and I the other day trying to make sense out of this blog-world...we were CRACKING up at ourselves and we got pretty silly together! I hope the other suggestions helped because all I know and love is sorry it has slowed your computer down. Congratulations on being featured in the treasury. You're creations are stunning!

  12. Wow, Picasa really has alot of great features! Can't wait to give it a try!
    Sheree :)
