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 have older posts with writing prompts in them that were aimed at use for teens, but really anyone can use them. As a blogger these can help us jump start our creativity again. So I’ve taken some of my favorites from my original writing prompts posts and twisted them up a bit and also thrown in some new ones to inspire myself and my blogging friends. My personal goal is to blog about … Continue Reading →

How to Print a List of All Your Blog Posts

It seems like forever that I have wanted to know how to print a list of all my blog posts.

Inspiring Women – The Lesson I Learned Today

Inspiring Women – The Lesson I Learned Today

So I was working at my home office today, not unusual. 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. I’m always trying to gain knowledge about my work in social media on Blab. Today as I was … Continue Reading →

My Tools and Setup for Live Streaming (Blab, Periscope, etc)

Lately, many people have been asking me about the various tools and setup I have that I use for live streaming video like on Blab.im, Periscope, etc. So here is a quick roundup. **Note that Blab has since closed, but these are great tools for any live streaming still. Backdrop My home office was at one time my son’s room. He has moved out, but his mark remains on the room, mostly in the form of a lot of small holes in the wall from thumbtacks that he used to hang up posters and such. Ideally I will redo the … Continue Reading →
