Bloggers have a way of communicating and sharing very honest, real, and sometimes raw perspectives on things. Sometimes though, we struggle finding what we should be talking about.

That’s one of the many reasons I love to do this exercise. When I look at trending topics, they’re filled with things that people are already talking about.

But what does my world view have to say about them? How can I be a part of the conversation on something that people are talking about?

Watching at the trends (from Google, Twitter, or anywhere else) and writing on what I see is ‘exercise’ enough, but I also like to force myself to get to the point. Therefore, I limit the number of words I use to share these thoughts.

If you’re a blogger, then consider letting yourself be stretched a little bit. You’ll grow as a blogger. I promise.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Pick a topic from the top 20 Hot Searches list at Google Trends.
  2. Write a post at your blog not to exceed 250 words (to be posted on Wednesday).
  3. Share the link to your post below using the Simply Linked widget.
  4. Leave a comment here about what you learned most from this challenge.

Even if you’re not a blogger, then check out the cool posts that others submit here. There should be some pretty interesting conversations brewing!
