It happens to all bloggers at some point ... writer's block. Whether you can't find a good topic to write about or are just having trouble getting motivated, sometimes you need a little extra push to get going. Like any skill, the more you write, the better you get. If you're stuck, try out Here, you get one word and 60 seconds to write whatever comes to mind. Submit your answer and it will be catalogued for others to see, if you enter your name and email (OneWord promises they will not show your email address.) You can also click "skip" to bypass that step and see what others have submitted. Either way, it's a nice exercise to get your fingers moving and your blogging brain cranking.

Another resource, Newseum's Today's Front Pages may help too. Here you can see front pages from newspapers all over the country and the world, every day. Sort by region, choose a state, country, etc. You can view the pages as they stand, download a readable pdf, print the page or click a link to go to that newspaper's website. Along with providing some inspiration, this can give you timely and geo-friendly topics to write about - always a plus for blogging.

Hi Mike and all
For me the problem is not the writing but the fact that getting fellow bloggers to your site is extremely difficult.So I have changed my whole thinking and now will concentrate to just writing.Instead of going out and telling people HEY Please come check out my blog.This has proved a real waste of time.You can't expect a cat to bark.I'm was so glad to get my awesome copy of websitemagazine yesterday.I wrote a cool post about it.I mention the transitioning from a amateur blogger to a professional.Thank God I'm getting close to switching myself.I'm using websitemagazine to learn about what's going on.As I launch my summertime campaign to be the number #1 YES #1 affiliate for websitemagazine.Watch as I go from zero to hero:)
Thanks for the great article Peace
Hope everyone has a GREAT summer. <not about POT:)>
