    I’m still trying to work out the good advice ha ha

    Thank you. I appreciate this because it’s always practical to use these “templates” when you’re brain stuck . I have a massive collection of swipe files and fill-in-the blanks for almost anything marketing or advertising related (emails, sales letters, blog posts, articles, ads, landing pages, etc:)

    Hi Michelle,

    Thank you for sharing these 50 ideas. You are great at sharing lots of information and and useful content. I love your blog too.

    Have a great day,

    With this list, I will be set for the year! Many of them also have an opposite you can write about too. For example, #20: Technology I Can’t Live Without – you can turn it around to be Technology I Can Live Without )and talk about those gadgets that just do not make sense to you!)

    Again, thanks for the list and the extra resources.

    Be Well.

    Hi, Michelle — This isn’t really a comment — although thank you for your post. Very helpful!

    Just wanted to let you know that at least on my computer (the vertical Shares pop up on your blog makes it impossible to read the article. I had to print it out to read it.

    (And now I can’t read the left hand side of what I’m writing because of the shares pop-up. Is there a way to suppress it I’m not discovering?

    Thanks. Loving the Ultimate Blog Challenge!

  9. says

    These are great, Michelle! I found myself actually writing the first couple lines and an outline for each topic as I read it. :-) I will definitely use some of these!

  14. says

    I just found your blog post and I love it. I have fired up a new love for my blog again. After going back and forth with what is going to best for my website I have decided to keep it. I know plenty about the Industry I like to post about but getting catchy titles was drawing a blank for me. The second a read through the first fie I knew exactly where I need to be headed. I’m going to save this page(bookmark) and refer back to it, when I get stumped. Thanks Michelle for sharing a great post!


  15. says

    I would love to write this “The Coolest Thing I’ve Found in Google” on my blog. I am sure that it will be fun and will be writing a lot.
