A friend and I were talking other day about writing. He liked to write, but even so his biggest problem was finding things to write about. My friend was astounded at volume of writing that I do - at least one article and something as many as six, per day. Where do I get all of ideas from?
I, in turn, was astonished myself. Why on earth would anyone have any trouble finding things to write about? In fact, my main problem has been I have so much to write about that I often find myself locked in a silent battle over which subject should be put on paper first.
People find it even more amazing when I tell them I try very hard to only write about positive events and provide helpful articles. Only rarely will you find any of my writings containing criticism, complaints or, worst of all, whining. Occasionally I will write an article which recommends against purchasing a product, seeing a movie, reading a book or visiting a web site, but these are exception.
The world is a huge, amazing, wondrous place. Things are going on around us all of time. There is so much good to see and do all over planet, so very many wonderful things going on all over place, that it's easy to find something to communicate about if only you open your eyes and look.
One of my passions is internet. I've written over 1,000 articles about all aspects of this massive communication medium. Much of this is taken from my 23 years of experience in computer field, and rest is from research, reading and, most of all, questions from other people.
Although much of my writing is about internet, I also find time to communicate about many other subjects as well. These include relationships (marriage and romance), raising children, building a career, handling office politics, current events, hobbies and history. I have yet to find a subject which I don't have something useful to contribute to other people.
How do I find so much to write about? Let me tell you some of ways: Many of my article ideas some from real life - For example, I have a long and happy marriage, so I like to write articles which help people with their relationships. I've also worked hard most of my life, as have most people, building a career, which is another area where I enjoy passing along tips to help others.
Question and answer sites - Sites like askme.com and askjeeves.com are perfect places to visit once in a while looking for ideas for articles. I visit and just scan questions (and there are thousands of them), looking for anything which looks interesting. When I find something, I write an article.
