Bloggers, like many writers, sometimes need inspiration. Daily bloggers may require more motivation than others. If you have a blogger or writer friend in need of help to overcome life’s stumbling blocks…or just writer’s block, then here are a few recommended selections.
Inspirational Book Recommendation:
Stop and Blog the Roses: A 2012 Calendar and Gratitude Journal for the Feisty, the Fabulous and Old Souls Everywhere based on the ChicagoNow.com blog by Fern Ronay
Fern Ronay selected 55 of her blog posts from her blog series on ChicagoNow.com and created a weekly calendar/gratitude journal. There is room for the reader to enter what they are grateful for daily. It is a great way to touch base with your inner blogger every day and jot down blog ideas.
Many e-books and blog subscriptions are affordable for Kindle, so much so that they make a perfect gift/gift card of sorts. Here are two currently priced at $0.99 each, more affordable than a gift card!
Faith, Hope & Chocolate Chip Cannoli (the Christmas blog stories) by novel and short story writer Kelley Hunter
This is a short Kindle Edition featuring seven of Kelley Hunter’s personal holiday tales from her blog as well as two bonus excerpts from her other books. All proceeds of Faith, Hope & Chocolate Chip Cannoli go to children’s charities, a perfect opportunity to give twice.
Think Simple Now – The Happiness Blog
Think Simple Now is a fully downloadable blog that you can read even when you are not connected. This personal development blog covers a myriad of topics in the inspirational and motivational theme. Creator Tina Su calls it a “happiness community, with self-reflective stories from real people.”
I recommend Think Simple Now for the great advice, articles that talk to me, make me think and make me act. It is a perfect gift not just for bloggers.
