Write about your passions

“We must not only blog what is popular. We must blog about our passions, no matter how quaint. This is true empowerment.” Su Layug


When I started blogging, I had no idea what I was going to blog about. I was an empty nester and it seemed appropriate to talk about that. I also had medical background and thought I can share my knowledge to help others going through the problems women/ men over 50 face.

I never thought I’d blog/ write about popular topics! I don’t know what popular topics are, perhaps politics is a popular topic but it is also like a powder keg, can explode any time.

What I am writing these days is a hotchpotch of topics, some in response to prompts and others about what I think. And I feel that writing about whatever I want to write about is very empowering.

Blogging gives us the platform to express ourselves, and that is what empowerment means! To be able to say what we want, how we want, and when we want. No one to edit our thoughts, no one to tell us it’s too long or too short, and no one to tell us not to say this or that before we press that publish button.

So write away! Write what you feel or want to say to the world. Blogging is your soapbox.

  1. I couldn’t agree more. It truly is liberating to be able to run with whatever captures the attention. Sometimes it’s work, sometimes not … but we can set our own direction … good luck to everyone exploring their passions

  2. Excellent post and true for a lot of us. I think when we get to be ‘of a certain age’ we tend to be able to express what’s on our heart better, hoping that somewhere along the way we made someone smile.

  3. I’ve been thinking about this question, and I just respond to prompts now. I stopped sharing opinions, as the prompts consume all my time. I think I need to cut back on the quantity I do 🤨

  4. Hi Sadje,

    I write to understand life, explore and express my thoughts, and progress with the world.

    Reading various Hindi novels, I learnt manner and values. Because writing reflects the real me (writer’s personality).

    Wp itself is great community to find the writer in you.

    There’s a need to write with a new approach.

    Thank you for the post.

  5. Yes Sadje we must blog about what boosts our minds and express our writing in a way that readers and strangers feel open to talk and relate to that blog. I do love to write about my passion because it makes writing easy as ABC. My journey to writing started 2 years ago , that time I was into fashion & style I still love it and I sat down and began to write about clothes , now I have over 90 follower in my website and each blog is about helping men dress better and use clothes to get what they want in life🙏😊. Such an encouraging blog my friend

  6. I’m so with you on this. I don’t write for anyone but me. Since retiring from teaching, my life is my own. For now, that means playing with words. And beginning a blog. Let’s see where it leads 😌😉

      1. There’s an easy test. Search my blog name. You should see any of my +900 posts, but they’re all hidden. You might find my site, but every post is hidden, all tags completely nonfunctional. And, it’s only because of my opinion. I’ve never cursed, called names or broken any guidelines. Censorship exists here, unfortunately.


          1. That’s the trick WP plays.

            You can “click” my name and still find my site, but no “search” will ever pull up a single post other than reposts from other bloggers. By hiding me from the search function, they turned my hundreds of views a day into next to nothing. My blog was once quite popular… until they censored me.

            It’s cool though, I don’t mean to usurp your time. You have a great site going and I’m looking forward to reading more. Thanks for hearing me out. 🙂
