It’s Monday and I’m ready to rock

Another Monday, another start to the standard work week for the majority of Americans.

I’m ready to rock!

Get a real guitar dude!
Get a real guitar dude!

But this post isn’t really about Monday, or rocking out.

What it’s really about is cheesy motivational sayings, tweets, posters, quotes, etc.

I gotta wonder if I’m in the minority, but I get nuthin out of empty “motivational” bytes. If there’s a person constantly tweeting out quotes on Twitter, I tend to un-follow them.

So what motivates me? What inspires me? People doing things, people writing, people talking.

So instead of posting quotes, do something. Even if it’s “just” writing for 28 days straight. Thanks to Tyler for bringing the 28 day challenge to my attention.

What to blog about

I often hear that many people have a hard time finding things to blog about or that they don’t have any ideas for a blog post.

I am the opposite. I always have too many ideas, too many blog topics, too many photos & videos that I need to turn into posts.

In the near future, I plan on posting about how and where I get some of my blogging inspiration, but until then, if you’re searching for blogging ideas, you may want to check out 100 blog topics from Chris Brogan (which I stumbled upon via Clintus), 101 posting ideas from IHelpYouBlog and 100 ways to find ideas from LifeSnips.

If you blog regularly, do you have a tough time finding things to write about? If you do get “blogger’s block”, what helps you find post ideas?
