Blogger’s BlockPosted at March 19, 2012
If you write a blog, then you know the pressure of constantly generating fresh content. We sure do.
You’ve also probably suffered from blogger’s block, otherwise known as being fresh out of ideas on what to write. Here are some thoughts on how to get yourself un-stuck:
1. Keep a journal/notepad with you at all times. You never know when inspiration is going to strike. If you’re not a paper-and-pen kind of person, then use Evernote on your mobile device. It is a life-changing way to keep notes, ideas, and inspiration. Capture a note on your phone, and it’s waiting for you when you get back to your desk.
2. Get your blogging mojo back. Last year we sponsored an eBook by the talented Bryan Allain, in which he offers 31 fantastic disciplines for becoming a better blogger and community-builder. 31 Days to Finding Your Blogging Mojo is hilarious and dirt-cheap, too. Check it out.
3. Join a community. Speaking of Bryan, he also helps facilitate a community of like-minded bloggers, who cover a panoply of topics but all share a common desire: become a better blogger, and get more traffic. The Killer Tribes community is a great place to encourage and be encouraged, to pick up ideas, and start something new.
4. Look for writing ideas in new places. Who can turn down a free book? The eBook 103 Ways to Create Sharp Blog Content is written from the trenches. Especially if you are in a field where you serve people, solve problems, or manage projects, then you’ll find some gold in these pages. Highly recommended!
