I’m very happy to present the next chapter of my blogging series. Today’s topic is very important, being able to find new article ideas is crucial for any blogging business because we function the same way as magazines do – people come back to us because of the content, of course there are other things, but let’s face it, without the content they wouldn’t come back. We need to have a never ending well of ideas to engage our readers, which is not an easy task, so how do we stay inspired?
Even when you start a new blog, it’s smart to write a list of 20-30 article ideas before you launch just to make sure you’ll have something to write about for at least the first month or two. Coming up with 20-30 ideas should be easy, but what about 100,200, or even 300? How do some of these writers seem to have an endless supply of things to write about?Read More

However in this article I will showcase everything – not only desktop blogging software, but also online websites, innovative curation/blogging solutions and simplified apps for distraction free writing.Read More

Being able to pick and choose when you work and when you don’t is such a pleasure , but it also comes with a lot of time management issues, people get distracted and end up sitting at their computer all day but not actually doing anything. Why is that?Read More
