Each day as I sip Kaapi, shower or drive to work, my mind is looking for bloggable topics. Incidents that embed themselves into my brain. Some days I get lucky like Tuesday when I got stuck in the snow. Some other days, there is nothing eventful happening. Then one day I get lucky.
Browsing randomly I came across this article in tech news that talked about a couple of ex-googlers starting this new service called Plinky. At the time I read about it, it intrigued me and I looked for it online.
The service was not up but they had a Notify me link that promised to let me know when they were ready to debut. I signed up and forgot about it. A few weeks back, I received an email saying Plinky was ready to take on the world. The net crazy being that I am, I signed up and explored the website. I liked what I saw but was not upto setting up my profile and such. I forgot about it over time and this morning I saw a digest email of what was happening out at Plinky.
I realized with a start that this was Godsent. I did not have to scour my brain for topics to write on. All I had to do was look around Plinky for writing prompts and I was set. I felt I had to share this with anyone who might be experiencing blog blues.
So, if you are waiting for that perfect idea to strike, go here and take a look. You just might find something that inspires you to write.
