  1. Hey Monja,

    Great suggestions to recover from writing block.

    I’m using Google searches, youtube videos, QNA sites to get ideas for my latest blog posts.

    One more thing that we can do is checking out the blog communities like Bizsugar, BlogEngage etc. Really great places to get content ideas. 🙂

    I agree on reading people’s comments.

    What I do to come up with posts ideas is: I will go around my daily day and talk to people about ideas that I have. This will generally create a discussion. They will have questions, point of views, arguments, etc.

    I use that to come up with a post. My posts are usually well thought answers to stuff people have mentioned to me in real life.
