Writing Prompts Challenge

   Blogging in 2014 is more than about the random thought that spill forth from our minds. Blogs in the beginning were nothing more than glorified diaries of individuals wanting to share with the world. Today there is a blog for everything. Want to see the latest trends in fashion, there is a blog for that. Want to know the latest on the Eco-friendly front, there is a blog for that too. Want to know if there is an app for that thing you want to do, there is a blog that will tell you that too. Today if you want to blog, and want people to read your blog, you either have to be very interesting, or specialize in what you write about. 
    That is one of the many things I am doing wrong with my blogging. I don't particularly specialize in anything in my blog. However I also do not specialize in anything in particular in life either. I am a Jane of all trades so to speak. I am an artist, I paint, do digital art, make jewelry, wire sculpture, write, crochet, ect... 
I am a mom and an herbalist. A collage student and a wife. A gamer, a geek, a whovian, a gourmet cook, the list just go's on and on. There are just so many thing to talk about, and so many things in life that interest me, I can never narrow it down. 
   Since I cant narrow it down I must try to be interesting, which so far I have not accomplished very well. So I am going to challenge my self to follow a list of writing prompts, to see if anything interesting pops I found them here
Now I know I cannot write oin here every day with going to school, the kids ect... However I am going to shoot for twice a week at least and if I accomplish more then Huzzah! 

Here is the list If any of you are interested in trying this yourself.
