Why You Can’t Sleep at 2:00 am?

Everyone can’t sleep at 2:00 am sometimes. Your blog just might have the answer they need to help them get back to sleep.

Jon Morrow suggests that bloggers should consider what would wake someone at 2:00 am and write a post about it. This question always bugged me because I couldn’t think of a reason I would get out of bed to read a blog. Well, it wasn’t 2:00 am. 

Now it is, and I can’t sleep!

 I decided to brainstorm some reasons people might get up. So here is an authentic list of blog post topics for you. You probably could add to this list, and please do. 

Note: Ordinarily, I edit out my weird thoughts, but not at 2:00 am. One of them might be the reason for your next viral post. Let me know if it is. 🙂
