When it comes to article writing, you do not have to come up with newer and newer ideas. You can always quote others and then comment on what they said. This is something that can help you with the word count in an article. If you do not know what to write about, try to find a few quotes. Then comment on them. I know that some bloggers feel weird about using quotes in their posts. I do not. I know that using quotes is part of being a blogger and writer. Quotes even make my articles look more professional and add credibility to them.
