The Cure for Writer’s Block

Most of the time, I have little trouble finding something to write about. I have spent the last year sharing my thoughts on parenting and finance and mixed it into a regular cycle of stories about life in Virginia. In between these posts, I have dropped various video clips and other items that I love. This process usually flows along fairly easily. However, some days, I simply have nothing to say and cannot generate on single useful thought. I guess this is what they call writer’s block.

It is during these moments that a blogger will begin searching the internet for anything that resembles a good idea. You have to find something to write on but you don’t want to use an idea that is already being over-exposed. You need that perfect topic. It has to be interesting and it needs to be relevant.
