What should I blog about?

I hear people tell me all the time that they don't know what they'd blog about.
Everyone has something interesting to say.
There are 1 million stories in the naked city every night - or so they say.
But the key is to write about what you're passionate about.
I love doing a random check over at technorati or other sites to see what keywords pop up in my blog posts.
You can see right away what I write the most about and by reading my blog you can probably tell very easily what my passions are. I write about thigns I'm passionate about.
If you're passionate about your pets, write about your pets. If you're passionate about your job, write about your job. If you're passionate about health care or politics or your church or your God, write about it.
