    I’ve tried everything when my brain gets cramps, why not try 22 more things that could help me out.

    Thanks for directing me to the article. I’ll let you know how it goes.

    There are no specific rules that can help you overclock your brain… Every person has a method to get them going (it would be kind of boring if everybody person on Earth was the same), but they have to find that out for themselves! Some people require a nice walk to get them going (and I’m one of them), while others need a cup of cocoa to sip slowly in front of the TV. From all the 22 ways that are suggested, my favorite has to be “Laugh”, since laughter is the most valuable thing that humans have to get them going. Laughter means exercise (yes, it’s true), puts you in a good mood and fuels creativity! So, go ahead and laugh – then start blogging!

    Number 19 was especially appropriate – “Write to be read”. So blogging is worthwhile even if you never intend to make a dime off it.
