Blogging Inspiration can be difficult to find at times
Every blogger gets writers block at some point. It’s natural. Depending on the topics you blog about you can also reach a plateau. My blog is about SEO, Social Media and Web Design. Being diverse means that if I get stuck for an idea I can go into another subject. But what do you do when you run out of inspiration?
Read, Learn, Explore, Do. Read other bloggers work, read books, read websites like Mashable. There’s nothing wrong with finding inspiration from current stories or trend. Expand on it, give your own opinion and quote your source.
Learning is important. No matter what industry you are in staying on top of whats new and staying informed can help give you inspiration. When I learn something new I blog about it.
Explore. Not just on the internet but in life. Go outside of your boundaries, do something you would never do. It will give you a story and something to write about. I like to attend networking events and then blog about them. A friend of mine found SEO inspiration from chopping fire wood one day. You never know when an idea may come to you. Sometimes I find inspiration from a photo.
Do. Doing comes in part with exploring, reading, and learning. As Nike says, Just do it. Sit down and start writing. Write about the first thing that you think of. Sometimes when you just write you get into a groove and flow.
