It’s going to be as hard as you want it to be. That is what I think of tasks that require patience, knowledge and dedication. I myself, I love to observe my improvement in writing, it happens so naturally. You aren’t given the magical choice: Upgrade now, or upgrade later? It just happens.

There Are No Boring Topics, Only Boring Content Creators

As an experiment, let’s pick a boring topic and see what we can come up with.

How about coffee cups? Boring enough for you? Take a few moments and dig for the right questions that may reveal some interesting article topics …

 - Who invented the first coffee cup and how did they get their inspiration?
 - What makes people think they need to drink coffee from a coffee cup and water from a glass?
 - When do coffee cup sales rise and what does that tell us about the American public?
 - Where are coffee cups made, and why not somewhere else?
 - Why are we drawn to novelty coffee cups with phrases like “World’s Greatest Dad” on them?
 - How does a coffee cup get all the way from China to the US and still sell for a profit?
