Making Your Search For Blogging Content Easier: One Tip For Getting Ideas

Try using “NewsBank.” NewsBank is a one-stop shop for searching more than 1500 U.S. and international sources.

NewsBank users can run a query on any topic, much like a regular internet search, and pull up content from newspapers around the world. NewsBank’s data is updated daily.

It appears that NewsBank has a broader resource collection (newspaper-based) as compared to Google News. I believe that this is due, at least in part, to the fact that NewsBank probably has a subscription fee that covers access costs to newspapers that Google News would otherwise not pay and therefore not have access to.

Don't fret about the subscription costs. NewsBank is available via many public and university libraries. I recommend that you ask your local public or university library how you can access NewsBank. It could make your search for content easier.

Consider the playing field leveled, at least somewhat for how bloggers find content. The idea is to improve personal finance blogging content throughout the blogo-sphere rather than hoard content/ideas.

If you have any other ideas or methods for finding content, please share via the comments section.
