How’s That Blog of Yours?

I think there are basically two types of bloggers: those who are enthusiastic and have lots of ideas, possibly more than they have time to write about, and those who’ve started a blog because someone like me told them it was a good idea, but then struggle to come up with topics to write about. Fortunately, there are some great resources out there to help you with your blogging challenges.


Buzz Cooperative was designed to connect you with companies who are looking for bloggers to promote their products. Until a few months ago, it was a free service, but there’s now a nominal fee of $10.00 per year.

Blog Energizer also connects you with businesses offering products you can review, in addition to other resources to help you breathe some new life into your blog. A free membership will give you immediate access to exclusive downloads, including 12 Buzz Topics You Should Blog About Right Now, people who may be willing to be a guest blogger for you, and much more.

Who knows more about blogging than Darren Rowse? A full-time professional blogger, his recent series called 31 Days to Build a Better Blog is now available as a downloadable workbook which is packed with instructions and assignments to help you generate post ideas and improve your blog in many other ways.

You can get a lot of inspiration simply by reading what other people are blogging or tweeting about and offering your own spin on the topic.

Perhaps you’d like to share an experience which may benefit your readers. Even posting a motivational quote occasionally, with or without your own comments about it, can be a powerful message.

If you’re a regular blogger, where do you get your ideas?

If you’re not, how can I help you with that?

A former professional organizer, I now eliminate stress for my clients by hosting, monitoring, and maintaining their WordPress sites so they don’t have to worry about security, downtime or performance issues. When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.

    Janet, I’ve been blogging since 2006 and in 2011 I’ve posted three days a week every week. I see possible blog posts all the time in my daily life. Looking for them has become second nature! I also have a page in my task notebook to jot blog post ideas as they come to me.

    That’s a very impressive track record, Janine! I’m curious – is your task notebook paper or electronic?
