Choosing a theme for a blog

Initially, when I started writing this blog last month, I had no idea what to write about. I had been thinking of starting a blog for at least six months but couldn't decide what the subject should be. Then I came across a blog post by Chris Storm "366 or How I Tricked Myself into Being Awesome" and he had a very good suggestion. According to him, the blog should be generic, and every post should be about a different topic. It was a very good idea and I picked up on that.

After writing a few posts, I realized that most of my blog posts ended up being about technology. Even though there were some posts which were not tech related, but most of the posts had shaped my blog as a tech blog. That's when I decided that I should define it as a technology blog.

From my experience, if you are planning on writing a blog and can't think of what to write, just start writing posts about random topics. Eventually, you will gravitate towards what you would enjoy writing about. Within a few posts, you should have a fair idea what the theme of the blog post should be...
