I wanted to point out one of your classmate’s blogs today. He’s declared Wednesdays to be “Milton Friedman Wednesdays” in which he’s going to post something about Milton Friedman each Wednesday. This is a very common, and useful, blogging trick that I suggest you all try. I know of bloggers who engage in similar posting with titles like “Friday Links” or “Monday Humor” or “Friday Faces of India”. The point is that it gets them searching for content and things to write about each week in addition to keeping readers coming back.
Particularly if you’re having trouble thinking of a research topic, it presents a good incentive to give yourself a deadline and force yourself to think about a topic that interests you.
