It happens to the best of us, we sit down to write our latest blog post or article and bam, we get hit with writer’s block. Or my favorite pitfall, when you’ve committed to writing more than you usually do, and then all of your ideas just seem to go flying out the window leaving you worse off than before. Sometimes the thought of coming up with ideas to write about is so daunting it prevents coaches from starting a blog in the first place.
If any of these sound like you, then read on because I will provide you with some brainstorming juice to come up with at least 21 blog posts or articles. If you post just one a week these ideas could get you through at least 5 months. If you break some of the larger posts down into a series of shorter ones, you could even stretch these out for 6 months or beyond! Read the rest of this post »

Textdown is a text editor that my VA has been experimenting with these past few weeks. She says that it saves time, so I thought I’d share it with you.
Let me preface this my saying that I am NOT the most tech-savvy person on the planet by a long shot. But this tool sounded helpful to me, especially if you like working from within your browser (as opposed to shifting back and forth between the browser and material on your desktop).

Facebook is a very rich, multi-media sharing site, and it’s become even more so with the recent switch to Timeline. This new page design places more emphasis on visual content such as images and videos.
