Groups and forums _ Although not as organized and pretty_looking as standard websites, these forums contain a lot of information and useful downloads as shared by their members. Most of these information and downloads are only available for those who sign up, so joining a group or two will be very helpful indeed. Not only that, but the social aspects of these groups or forums allow you to communicate with other members. You can also choose to search for certain groups or members with similar interests as yours.
I'd like to give you an example: I recently wrote an article outlining several ways to get out of a writing slump. As I was writing that article, I came up with about 7 or so ideas for getting your brain out of a creative rut with your articles, including some article template ideas and some writing productivity techniques. I submitted the article, and then thought__ "Each of those ideas for getting out of a writing slump needs to be elaborated on and explained further. I can do a new article for each idea." And so I did__so far I've bounced 4 or 5 articles off of that first article, and I have even more ideas that I've gotten from that first article that I haven't written about yet.
