Ubuntu Linux 12.04 LTS USB Startup drive video + Review

Fri, 05/18/2012 - 07:17 — julie

Ubuntu Linux 12.04 LTS is a great operating system which can be start from a CD, USB drive, and can be installed on a hard drive. I like that it can be run from most older computers since the minimum requirements are low if your computer can run Windows Vista, or have a 1GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM, 10GB of hard drive space, and a video card, you can run Ubuntu pretty well.

10 Ways to Generate Original Blog Content

Mon, 05/14/2012 - 17:05 — julie

Writer’s block is a tricky beast to tame: when it strikes, it’s all we can think about. Yet, the more we think about it, the more it sticks. Different writers have their own tips and techniques for overcoming writer’s block, and no matter how bad it feels, it does end at some point. This post describes 10 ways of pushing through the idea-less fog, and coming out the other end with inspiration galore.

1. Change your routine

A stale routine can lead to a stale mind, which, in turn, can lead to a case of writer’s block. Shake things up a bit by changing your workplace for one day. If you normally work at home using a laptop, try taking your notebook to a cafe instead. Even small shifts, like going for a walk at lunch-time instead of staying at your computer, can make a big difference in your thinking.
