I do a combination of the two. I blog on the theme of mindful living, so all my posts relate to that. But I often get my ideas for specific posts through free writing or things my meditation teacher says.
A love of the process of writing inspires me. I write because it’s fun.
When I first sit down in front of my computer, I never feel like I have anything to say. A little free writing for a few minutes gets the ideas flowing.
Living mindfully is important to me, and I write about that. My meditation teacher says the most wonderful and practical and profound things, and I’ll take something she says and riff on it.
What you said about how reading something another person wrote is like exploring their mind is so true. When someone lets you read their journal, for instance, you get a whole new insight into them that you don’t get from conversation.
You were talking in another thread about copywriting — are you a professional writer? I study copywriting because it helps my blogging. And because it’s cool.
