A new James Blunt Tune and loving Words of Wisdom

G'day lovely friends and welcome to Natasha in Oz! I'm so thrilled you have stopped by today because I am sharing my latest favourite song. I haven't shared some music and words of wisdom for a while and thought it was about time to do so.



Have you heard James Blunt's new song When I Find Love Again?

When my kids first heard that I loved the song (they hadn't heard it and were most impressed that I had heard it before them!) they were a bit leery about listening to it. You see we never really liked James Blunt and I can honestly say that I REALLY disliked the song You're Beautiful. I thought it was boring, monotonous, over-played, and that Blunt's voice was annoying, and, I wasn't shy in sharing my thoughts. You can therefore imagine how much I appreciated reading today that Blunt himself apologised for inflicting that awful song on the world, agreeing with me that the song is "annoying"! And it's not just me (and Blunt) who found the song annoying; NME magazine described his voice as "Hamster-like" and nominated the song as "The Very Worst UK Number One Single of All Time". The song also featured regularly in "worst" and "most-irritating" lists and inspired a parody by Weird Al Yankovic called You're Pitiful.


Well, all is forgiven Mr Blunt! I love your new song and I shall forget that other awful song even existed. I will forever associate you with When I Find Love Again!




I hope you enjoy listening to James Blunt's latest song and even found some lovely quotes all about LOVE to accompany the music.

Say G'day Linky Party {109} and 50+ Spooktacular Halloween Ideas!

G'Day from Oz and welcome to this week's Say G'day Saturday Linky Party!

Say G'Day Saturday @ Natasha in Oz

I'm so glad you stopped by to say g'day and share YOUR projects, crafts, ideas, recipes, linky parties and anything else you want to share with bloggers from all over the world! +Joanne T Ferguson from What's on the List and I really appreciate your support and friendship.

I've been a very bad blogger this week and I ran out of time to share my weekly Friday Favorites and Pinning Blogger of the week. I went to an interschool athletics meet all day yesterday and was way too tired to even contemplate writing a blog post. So, to make up for it, today I am sharing lots of Halloween ideas that were linked up to last week's party!

I had fun trying one of the blog topic generator sites I recommended on Thursday's post. You can read more about using blog topic generator sites to help you come up with engaging and interesting blog titles/ideas by clicking the button below!

I came up with the idea of finding Halloween inspiration from this blog topic that was generated via Portent:

Say G'day Linky Party {109} and 50+ Spooktacular Halloween Ideas!

I changed it around to suit the title for today's linky party naturally but it still gave me a great blog topic.

So without any further ado here are 50+ Spooktacular Halloween Ideas all found at last weekend's Say G'day Saturday Linky Party!

Got Blogger's Block? Stuck for ideas for your next blog post? Check out these great content generator sites!

G'day from Oz lovely friends! Welcome to my little corner of the bloggy world Down Under. I haven't shared a "Blogging Tips" post for a while so I thought I would share some fun content generator sites that I use when I get "Blogger's Block"!

Got Blogger's Block? Stuck for ideas for your next blog post? Check out these great content generator sites!


I'm not sure about you but when I am having a busy week I find it it hard to get my head around blogging which makes it really hard to find time to research, take pictures and to sometimes even come up with a topic to blog about! If you have ever had Blogger’s Block you will know exactly what I'm talking about!

It's times like these I need inspiration from other places and when I turn to sites that help me find ideas to blog about. If you need inspiration then you might want to check out these fun sites and see of they can help you find a topic or an idea to blog about.


Thanks so much for sharing!


Got Blogger's Block? Stuck for ideas for your next blog post? Check out these great content generator sites!



The first site is www.hubspot.com where they have a great page called Blog Topic Generator.

You just fill in the fields with terms that you'd like to write about, and they will come up with relevant blog post titles in a matter of seconds!

I typed in coffee, health and daily.

And this is the result! Now, as you can see the third one isn't quite right but it could easily be changed to health or coffee. Isn't it a great source of inspiration though?

The next site is a Content Generator from www.portent.com. As you can see you just add a topic you want to blog about and this site will generate titles for your blog post for you.

I had coffee on my mind while searching these sites so coffee was my subject. I love this title that the site came up with!

Content Row's Link Bait Title Generator  works the same way where you enter a keyword or subject you want to write about and the site will generate title ideas.

The final site I use is ideas.contentforest.com This site came up with over 150 ideas for the keyword of coffee! Some of the ideas were ridiculous but some were actually pretty good!

Finally, don't forget about YOUR older content! Re-visit your older posts and develop new posts based on them. For example, if you had written a recipe post in 2012 that you still use but have updated to to make it healthier, re-write a new recipe post and then link back to your older post.

Recipe post from March 2013 and recipe post from February 2014

















By doing this you have created a brand new post AND you have also been able to do some internal linking and therefore boost search ranking. By simply creating a new version of an old blog post you are helping BOTH posts improve their SEO/search ranking.

One thing to keep in mind with content generators is that by no means are they perfect! 
Often the grammar isn't quite right or they repeat ideas because there is a finite amount of 
words plugged into each algorithm. 

BUT, they could inspire a blog post that you had never even thought about writing!
