Looking for Blog Ideas? Why Not Check Out the Contests Tab!

Looking for Blog Ideas?  Why Not Check Out the Contests Tab!


Do you ever just run out of ideas for blogging?  I know I do, and then I'm off looking for a new idea or just something different.

One of my new favorite tricks is the Contests Tab at the top of the AR page.

Active Rain Contests


Not only does it give you ideas, but it can also give you extra incentive in the form of points.  (I know; I know,  It's not all about the points, but sometimes, it just makes it a little more fun).

So, what do you think?  Do you enjoy the Contests tab as an easy way for ideas and to enjoy the contests?

The tab makes it more convenient to follow contests. In the past, if you missed the blog post (or a re-blog of same) they were easily missed.

I was just thinking I was doing a lot of stats posts lately learning the new tool I have for Market Reports and what would I write otherwise the next few days. Good pointer!

Wow.  You learn something everyday by reading Active Rain posts.  I have bookmarked this post for those future blogless moments.
