Sometimes I’m just not as creative as I’d like to be. As much as I love brainstorming and generating lists of all the things I want to blog about, sometimes I draw a blank or don’t feel like writing from my list. Those days when I want to write something fresh or turbo charge my brain power, I open Google. Not to surf or distract myself, but to get a different perspective.
Google looks so simple that it’s easy to overlook the built-in tools that allow you to expand and refine your searches right from your browser window.
Two of my favorite Google search tools are “Related Searches” and “Something Different.” They each open the universe of possibilities in different ways.
