As I am sure many of the WordPress users out there already know, there are some tools out there to help combat writer’s block.  A new one that WordPress came up with is called, “Plinky.”  You can find the site here:

Out of sheer curiosity, I decided to check out the site.  I signed up, as it has a handy dandy way of connecting to your WordPress account and publishing your writing on both sites when your post is completed.  I like this….. it gives me a little more flexibility in my writing… it also helps me to come up with topics when I am stumped which most certainly happens to even the most seasoned writers.  I like having a little back up tool to use when I really, really have the urge to write, but nothing comes to me.

If you are looking for new, fun tool to use for your writing, I would definitely recommend checking this one out!

Or at least, that’s how I am feeling about WordPress right now!  Didn’t realize it was so complicated to personalize my stuff on here!  A friend told me that there is “WordPress for Dummies” book out there.. I am going to HAVE to buy it!  It drives me crazy when I can’t figure something out on my own!
