comment How do I keep up with current written English language?
@Kris Although your statement more poetic and less definitive than the answer, how language is used and changes over time is non-obvious for someone outside an English speaking region. I'm baffled by seeing new words and expressions suddenly pop up in the media, seemingly out of nowhere. Keeping track seems important if one wants to write in English.

I don't understand what you mean.

They also have RSS subscriptions, so you can read it through your favorite RSS reader.

I think the question was specifically about the application of language (writing and improving an active writing vocabulary), not about grammar and spelling.

The manner in which you formulated your answer suggests a factual statement, but I expect it is your personal opinion. Is that so? If not, could you please elaborate? I don't see how a website or service trying to keep track of the written language could cause people not to use the English language anymore.

comment How do I formulate while writing?
I experience similar problems in my native language, although I know more words. Coming up with those words still takes a long time, sometimes days, requiring me to edit a blog post that has been published. I wished I had a more effective way to pick the right words while I'm writing. Somehow the act of writing is blinding my word choice.
