Write a post about how you are a “pure” blogger and how monetised blogs give you the shits.

Write about how you have decided to monetize your blog and then justify your decision.

Write a long, sweary rant that is slightly left of litigious about a really big company and how they done you wrong.

When it is your kids birthday,  write a post letting us know it is their birthday and include a photo of the cake you made from scratch.  If it is a one year old’s birthday,  it is great to mention that they preferred playing with the boxes than then with the actual gifts. You could put a picture in of them sitting in a box.

Post about the fact that you are fed up with blogging and are taking a blogging break and you do not know when you will be back. If ever…….
