    I’m always having trouble coming up with a “theme” or discussion topic for my blogs, and this is a really great guideline for people like me! Interesting…

      While I have to admit I’m slightly biased, I can’t recommend The Daily Post enough when it comes to blogging inspiration, tending your community, learning more about WP.com features, and meeting a like-minded crowd of supportive people.

  2. The FaithBook

    I love how you guys offer tips and help to the everyday or occasional (like myself) blogger. Thanks so much!

    I am so, so excited with these ebooks. I honestly can’t thank you enough! For the past few hours I’ve going through all three ebooks writing down ideas. The 365 prompts are super…I even picked about 10 of them that I can incorporate and adjust to my blogs!

  4. Leonila Tado

    Thank you so much for your assistance…you inspired me…

    I think these books are a great idea for a couple reasons. It reminds me of being in English class during high school where my teacher would make us write for the first 10 minutes of class to get our brain juices flowing. Whenever we started class with a writing prompt people were more likely to contribute to the conversation than when we just jumped straight into a topic. I find it when I write in the morning I become more open with people around me throughout the day. By getting my thought process going in the morning it helps me better communicate with people and express my ideas easier than when I don’t write in the morning.
    In general, I can see all three of these books being helpful for a PR student or somebody that would like to get into PR.

    I like how you guys are always posting and keeping us entertained with your creativity and imaginational spark. It has got me moving and really imto the habit of blogging and is keeping me at the top with my website. I have a tip too for more traffic. Comment more and also make interesting posts that way people will view them and also reblog them which would give some credit to your websote. Thanks for the great tips and keep on shining.

    • Krista

      You’re right. Participating in conversations on topics that interest you is a great way to meet people in the blogging community. I don’t know a single blogger who doesn’t appreciate thoughtful comments on their posts.

        Me niether. I’ll write from the heart. I love blogging because it’s like a growth in life, a record of who I am. I would love to connect with my readers through my blog and that’s why I’m always open to comments. By the end of the year, I hope to get a variety of followers and more traffic. I also hope my blog isn’t just an average blog, a blog that people read and learn from, a blog where people come together to share thoughts, a community. One of the wonderful things about blogs is the growth, the learning and the interactions but it’s good to know where and why you started.

    Inspiring! I am hoping to be a regular blogger after a long hiatus and a whole lot of changes in life. It’s a gratifying feeling to see things like this making the getting back easier!
    Thanks!

  13. varakawa

    These are great, thank you so much. No I don’t need to browse the Internet for prompts anymore (always bears the danger of getting distracted…)

  14. Henry Chamberlain

    Way cool. WordPress rocks!

  15. Ryan Poliran

    Thank you so much for the 3 free e-books on blogging! Wow, this is exciting. Just started my first blog the other day and really need help. I can’t wait to get started reading the tips. Thanks again. Susan Smith-Allen

    These are great suggestions. I used to have a low opinion of Ebooks but that was due to a lack of knowledge, and my love of dusty libraries. I still love wandering through tables of books at the Strand in NYC or Powells in Oregon. However ebooks are the wave of the future and here to stay. Thanks again!

  19. islanderview

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! These books are just what I need…have skimmed through all three & a half, and I’m sure they will help me tremendously with my blog. I love the Writing Prompts and Zero to Hero items. I’m looking forward to making more notes and fine tuning my blog with these very inspirational tips! Thank you WordPress & The Daily Post team!!
