Blogging Help: If you happen to be a blogger and have a hard time coming up with new ideas, you’re in luck. Google is launching a new operating system that will help you write your posts:

Let’s say you have a blog about Google, you wake up in the morning and wonder what to write. Now you can go to Google Writer, create a new project, enter some keywords and a small description and choose the default output (Blogger). Now when you create a new article inside this project, Google Writer gives you suggestions about the hot topics of the day, insightful articles about Google, news and popular queries that include “Google”.

After choosing the topic, Google Writer suggests a title, some key quotes from other blogs and some interesting sites, images, and videos about the topic to facilitate your research. You can choose those that interests you and let Google Writer to create some context around the quotes. Google Writer has a big database of n-grams from web pages and it’s able to create grammatically-correct sentences. It also learns your writing style from the previous articles, it knows your favorite authors, sites and your interests.

Now that you have the basis of the article, Google Writer suggests some concepts or portions of the text you should write about or expand. Google Writer has a smart autocomplete that learns from the web and is adapted to your style. It’s also able to summarize text, to show interesting content from the web related to a text fragment and previous articles on the same topic.

Slightly off topic, but we updated the blogs with a new look in response to users wanting more color for their personal finance blogs. We think that all bloggers will enjoy the changes.
