Blogging – what to when you are out of ideas
Share

Probably every blogger has gone through this at the some point – you sometimes simply don’t know what to write about! Bloggers are on tough schedules and have to come up with interesting blog posts as often as possible if they want to keep their readers interested. Here are some of my tips for when you’re stuck for inspiration.

The word blog is a contraction of the original title web log, which was a Journal. Most people’s understanding of journals is that they are accounts that are frequently updated; most commonly on a daily basis. So with that in mind, if you are the owner of a blog that you want to use to engage your community, keep them interested and connected to you, daily writing should be the standard you are aiming for.

Unfortunately for many blog owners the biggest problem in meeting this demanding schedule is not the time it takes to write the blog but actually what to write about. Assuming you set yourself this goal and you write every working day (even business bloggers deserve the weekend off) that’s 206 unique articles to create. So how do you go about generating so much content? Staring at a blank page for hours devoid of inspiration is the fastest way to turn yourself off blogging for good. So here are some of the tactics I use to inspire myself and get going on those days when the creative muses have left the building by the back exit.
