52 Prompts for Bloggers Who Feel Blocked – Enough for 1 Post a Week for a Full Year!

So I’m a blogger, obviously, but I have felt blocked for a while now. It dawned on me that I need to follow my own advice.

I was writing a post for this blog about apps for smartphones and tablets (it will be coming soon) and I was listening to Blab.im in the background, no unusual. I love listening to all kinds of Blabs – kind of like video podcasts/live talk shows, as I work. It is not uncommon for me to take a few minutes to jump around and try out different Blab’s as I work.
