While re-designing my blog site and author site, I thought of adding some method to help with my writing habit. I will publish post along pre-determined categories or themes for the blog themes. Each day will have a “Themes” or topics for every day of the week. You can track the progress of my writing by visiting this page.

Blog Themes in a Nutshell
Starting February 2022, I will publish atleast 1 blog post per day of around
500 800 words. Each post will carry one of the below themes, depending on the day that post is published. The themes are:
SaaSy-Sundays : SaaS reviews
MyPod Mondays: Podcasting
Travell Tuesdays : All about travel
Webby-Wednesdays : Webhosting, CDN, VPS, Shared Hosting
Techie-Thursdays : DIY setups, upgrades, How To’s
Foto-Fridays: Photos, videos and more
Sustainable-Saturdays: To be explored
Blogging Challenge – a Natural evolution towards developing a Daily Writing Habit
In the past, I have set 60-day blogging challenges, that is, publishing 1 blog post per day for 60 days in a row. In January and February 2021, this helped me reach my posting and word count goal. Because of COVID and life, my writing habit took a hit. As I get back on the blogging side of writing, the idea of “themes” appealed to me.
Writing: the Problem of Plenty
I have several ideas or topics in mind when it comes to writing. Because of a myriad of hobbies and interests, I can write on quite a few topics. While it may appear as bragging, in terms of content writing and positioning, this can pose a problem of plenty. You see, the audience for my posts on travel need not be interested in my work related to image compression or even Webhosting. Similarly, someone looking for a review on a SaaS product may not resonate well with Travel.
A good friend of mine, who runs a digital marketing agency, told me recently that one should write on one topic only. Maybe two if one is adept, but definitely no more than three topics. And here I am, writing on SEVEN different themes! Over a period of time, my writing might settle into two or three topics as was suggested. For now, I am happy to keep writing about things that interest me. Hope this will appeal to you.
