List of Blog Topics for Authors

As a writer, it can be difficult to find things to blog about. I struggle with trying to find out what people want to read, and what will help me with my writing. So, when looking for a list of things for authors to blog about, I found some really great topics. I wanted to share some of the things I found with you, as well as a few of my own topics. Eventually, I would like to get to 50.

Keep in mind, these don’t have to just be posts on your blog, you can post these anywhere. They each make for great Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr topics and posts.

Are there any you think I should add?
