Eclectic (Elements of Blogging A to Z)
Tossing It Out is what I consider to be an eclectic blog. I discuss all sorts of topics on this blog and don't limit myself to anything in particular. My topics range from music and entertainment and to cover the gamut of writing, politics, history, religion, food, or whatever I feel like talking about. There is no niche in this blog. This is what I think of as an "eclectic blog". This is a blog with variety.
Many bloggers approach blogging in this way and that can work well for readers and especially be good for the blogger who is less likely to experience blogging burnout or topic block. There's always something to write about and when our blog doesn't have focused expectations then the eclectic approach is a good one to take.
Blogs can be Educating and Entertaining. An entertaining blog doesn't necessarily have to educate, but it probably helps if an education blog is at least somewhat entertaining. Blogs don't have to be fun, but if you're not a expert on a subject then the fun approach is more likely to be appealing to your readers.
Do you think of yourself as someone with eclectic interests? What do you find to be most entertaining on blogs? When you are getting educated do you prefer that the learning process be somewhat fun?
Here are some blogs that are educational as well as entertaining:
