Stuck About What to Blog?


When you cannot think of a thing to blog, write a list.

Compliments of Google Search

Below is my LIST of several reasons that I believe blogging helped me and can help you too. If you have not decided to try blogging yet, I hope this list will urge you to start blogging…NOW. And now, it’s all about me!

  1. Blogging keeps me sharp and helps me develop and learn.
  2. Blogging gave me an office of friends and co-workers around the world who were willing to share their ability with me, and keep me company right in my home.
  3. Blogging maximized my doors of opportunities in ways I could not foresee. Arcadia Publishing Company noticed a post about my town and asked me to write a book about Woodlake. What a thrill and an achievement of one of my lifetime goals! Next, I wrote two novels, two children’s books and now this book along with its longer counterpart, Because of Blogging  because a friend encouraged me to step out and do it!
  4. Blogging developed my skills in technology, writing, drawing, and photography. Using Photoshop and Adobe Illustrated to process photos, create flyers, and brochures is no longer a mystery. Miss Earningway even tried to sell some photographs – unsuccessfully, I might add, but it was an experiment. A Bamboo electronic sketch pad helped me to start drawing and publishing a few of my drawings.
  5. Blogging developed marketing and communication skills. Social media became my best friend, and I expanded from doing it only for myself to dragging in all the organizations to which I belonged, right in with me. WordPress publicized automatically to several accounts, so I had to set up and learn to use those accounts.
  6. Blogging refined and expanded my hobbies because writing helps you learn new skills.

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
