A friend sent me a link to this lovely video and I had to share.
Talk between us
It is easy to get going quickly and great fun. You can use it for free, just the videos have a “Created by Powtoon” outro on them, and the selection of themes and images is less than for paid versions, but there are still plenty to use to make a good video or presentation
Edu Powtoon is really really cheap – from $1 per month for students, $2 a month for teachers and only $8 a month for a whole classroom! That is a really sweet deal.
Why not try it for yourself – start off free – it might be all you ever need.
Here’s one I made during a Udemy course “Animation For Beginners: 5 Day Animation Challenge” taught by Anneke Camstra on Udemy https://www.udemy.com/animationchalle…
Here’s one I made for our wine saver promotion

1) Test or Review Something And Post Your Results
If you’re really stuck for ideas, why not give yourself a challenge and post the results? For example, in the personal development niche this could mean making a gratitude list each day and writing about the effects. Or you could try a new fitness program and write about how you’re dealing with it. In most cases, readers in any niche love to read real life case studies!
2) Google It!
Why not Google the main topic of your blog and see what appears? You don’t want to copy any other blogs, of course, but one idea will often lead to another. Have a read around blogs in your niche – maybe even blogs outside of your niche – and see what they’re writing about. Either use this as inspiration for your own topics or write a direct response to what’s already out there.
3) Find Helpful or Interesting Videos & Share Them With Your Readers
Why not get surfing YouTube and see if there’s an interesting video you can share with your subscribers? Embed the video into a post where you give your own personal comments. This is a super-fast way to come up with content that’s still interesting.
4) Use What Happens In Your Daily Life As Inspiration
You might not be writing a personal blog, but that doesn’t mean you can’t bring personal experience into the posts you write. If you can relate personal experience to the topics you write about, then do so. Sometimes you have to get creative, but your blog posts will be more interesting as a result!
5) Ask Readers To Ask Questions
What better way of coming up with content that your readers will enjoy than to invite them to ask questions? Write up a quick post one day asking them what they want to know, then post a follow up a few days later with all the answers. This last method is also an excellent way to connect with your audience.
6) Give Your Readers a Poll to Participate In.
Not everyone will ask questions, but if you give your readers a short, relevant poll to complete you can get some great feedback
7) Check Your Analytics to see what people are typing in their searches
Checking your stats can leave you with a whole range of blog post ideas. Take a look at the keywords people are typing in to find your site. Chances are that some of the things they’re searching for aren’t on your blog yet. Why not use these keywords as ideas for future blog posts? You’ll also have the added benefit of knowing there’s a future audience for those posts!
I have talked about the delightful animated cards from Ojolie.com in another post this month so I thought I would send one to you all to see why I find them so appealing. Here is my favorite for this year for you all to enjoy.
