Book Review: No One Cares What You Had For Lunch
By: Ellouise Schoettler

Book Review: "No One Cares What You Had for Lunch: 100 Ideas for Your Blog" by Margaret Mason

When I was feeling low on topics for my blog, ellouisestory.blogspot.com" I ran across this book in a San Francisco bookstore. It is a handy paperback to have on your book shelf, especially if you are a blogger or a storyteller looking for prompts that will lead you to a new story.

Margaret Mason lists 100 ideas to inspire you with blog topics that keep readers coming back for more... Some are straight forward like "Give Us Something" - gifts you remember or "Think Back" – a list of historical events to jog your memory of what you were doing when

Other ideas are unexpected: like "Watch Your Language" which asks for out of date phrases and sayings or "Do What You Love" which suggests you write about your passions.

All are fun and I found them good prompts to quick start ideas.

The book jacket blurb tells you that Margaret Mason is a writer and entrepreneur living in San Francisco. Her two blogs, Mighty Girl (www.mightygirl.com and Mighty Goods www, mightygoods.com) draw more than 50, 000 visitors per week. She’s got to know something.

Storytellers know that story prompts work. They set you to thinking and often lead to new stories. I also loved that the book is by Peachpit Press.
