I’m just a guy hiding behind a computer. That’s me peeking over the monitor.
When I first started blogging, I attempted to follow the rules. “Your blog has got to have a theme,” I was told. So I came up with a theme, tried to stay on it, and got bored. I’m A.D.D. and…oh look! I just got an email. What were we talking about? Oh yeah, when I exhausted my interest level on a topic, the blog became boring. So this site was ‘reinvented’ with a new theme. Then I had to reinvent again. I decided that I don’t like the ‘theme’ rule.
I also don’t like the rule that I can’t use ‘that’. I just used it for the third time in three sentences. What do you think of that? Oh, I was also told I can’t use ‘was’. Who was it that said that? Oh yeah, it was just about every writing book I’ve read. And probably the ones I was going to read.
What’s this blog’s theme? If you figure it out, let me know. In the mean time, I’ll write about the craft of writing when I find something helpful and think it’s worth sharing. Some weeks it will be devotionals. Other weeks it will be fictional stories, articles, or funny true stories about my childhood. When my memory is jogged into telling my kids a story about my childhood, I make notes and then write it out. At my age, these stories come and go at random, so I have to catch them when they flutter by. When I’m taking a dirt nap, I want my kids to remember them.
Some weeks will be author interviews, guest blogging, or whatever hits my fancy. Sorry I couldn’t come up with a theme. But readers don’t seem to mind because the readership keeps growing. I guess my theme is that I enjoy sharing my life with you, and I hope you laugh, find encouragement, grab a few nuggets of edumacation, and find a little inspiration. If that doesn’t suit yer fancy, buy one of my books. They usually stick to a theme. And people seem to like them, too.
Oh, I do have a blog with a theme. I’m an avid gardener. When I discover something helpful, I post it. If you like gardening or are interested in learning about growing, check out http://www.suburbanvegetablegardening.com. Gardening, like writing, has so many things to explore. Maybe you’ll find a how-to article that helps your green thumb.

About Eddie Snipes
Eddie Snipes balances writing between a full-time job, five children, and participating in professional organizations. In
2011, he began serving as the President of the Christian Authors Guild.
He has been actively writing since 1998. Eddie contributes to OnePlace.com / Sermon Search, is a speaker, and has served as a Pastor and interim pastor. He actively participates in three writing organizations – The Christian Authors Guild, American Christian Fiction Writers, and the Atlanta Writers Club, and has won several writing awards.
Eddie’s favorite genres are not limited the Christian fiction – anything but sappy romance and trashy writing. I read a little of every genre – as long as I can get it on my kindle.
