Writers’ block or as I like to call it, “Writers’ Blogk” (also the name of my next blogging project) is something most bloggers encounter.
Let’s face it. Even though we start blogging believing we’ll never run out of things to say, we do.
When that happened to Chase March he published a post titled, “Nothing”.
I like his originality, however I’ll bet the search engines were confused on how to index it.
Many bloggers have a list of topics to write about.
Some fly by the seat of their pants and post when an idea hits.
And still others have a set schedule and feel obligated to post accordingly.
Truth be told, there is no right or wrong way when it comes to a posting schedule. Do what works for you.
That said, let’s get back to the issue of writers’ block.
The Daily Post (at WordPress.com) has come up with a fabulous idea. They will give us ideas for blog posts, free.
It’s as easy as signing up for their daily updates and voilà, each day a new idea arrives in our (email) inbox.
Here’s a few of the ideas they’ve shared thus far:
- How do you stay focused?
- Write about a topic story you’ve never told
- What would you do if you only had an hour to live
- What are you looking forward to?
- Why did you start your blog?
Although some of the ideas may not pertain to your niche, the ideas make a good stepping stone to another idea.
Take for example #5 – We’ve discussed why we started our blogs, but the question, “How do you stay focused?” would inspire me to write about time management as it pertains to blogging; sharing what I do, and asking you to share your ideas.
What about you?
Where does inspiration for your blog posts come from?
Do you ever get writers’ block? If so, how do you get past it?
