Blogs are the electronic water cooler of our day–like the copy machine or maybe the Starbuck’s line — the place where you find out what people are talking about. Seasoned reporters told me to listen to the chat there and I could find story ideas, which of course I always needed!
So blogs can trigger story ideas. But where to go?
Try Globe of Blogs. I was overwhelmed when I first discovered the vast number of blogs here. But the most helpful aspect of it is that you can search just blogs in your hometown or you can filter by topic.
Check it out — hope it helps stimulate your creative thinking about stories you could do.
And if it works, leave a comment, or leave another tip for finding stories using online resources.
