Remember how much you would have rather read a book with lots of pictures versus one with only text when you were a kid? The same applies, even now.
A picture speaks a thousand words, and when it comes to your content, that cannot be truer if your image is relevant. Images add richness to your content, and make readers more willing to read a long article. And they have great SEO value too!Read More
Creating the title is the hardest and most agonizing part of the writing process. Whether you are writing a novel, a news article, an advertisement, a blog, or an e-book.
How do you cram the whole content of the book or article into a few words? How do you keep viewers interested enough to look a second time?

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?
