5 Quick Ideas to Combat Blogging Block

You have a blog. You’ve made the decision to post new blog posts twice a week. Your deadline is looming ever closer and your mind starts to shut down into a blank nothingness… This has happened to me so many times. Creativity on demand can be very challenging and in moments where you find yourself stuck for ideas, you need fresh perspective to help combat the blogging block.

A Brainstorm Session with Friends

It’s a classic for a reason! Introducing new information, perspectives and collaborating with people is one of the easiest ways to get your creative juices flowing.

Google, Google, Google

The internet is like a giant brain just waiting for you to pick out new ideas. Browse some articles on the topics you want to blog about. Go to blogs with the same subjects and see what others are doing.

Inspiration on Pinterest

There is a plethora of eye candy on Pinterest. Do a search for the subjects you blog about or follow interesting boards. Pinterest is also great in that they have a lot of how to’s and tutorials that can be really useful. Or just be inspired by what is being posted that day.

Use a Generator

Until I started blogging on a regular basis I didn’t realize that there are great tools that will help you create the title of a blog post just by adding a few keywords to a couple fields and clicking a button.

Get Outside

Creativity doesn’t always come from within – it can come from external sources too. Get some inspiration by checking out a show, finding meetup groups with others interested in your topic or just taking in some fresh air to help clear your mind.

Last of all

Remember why you started blogging in the first place. Why are you passionate about what you are writing about? What areas are you most interested in and what else can you cover? There is a whole world out there for you to get inspiration from. Go on – get inspired!
