Writing is an amazing craft. You can do it from anywhere in the world. It helps you not only interpret the world around you, but gives others glimpses into the world you see. Even the most seasoned writer hits the wall at one point and struggles through writers block. Whether it is your profession or you just write for yourself, here are 5 ideas for writing blog posts when you find yourself struggling for ideas.
Plan ahead for brain farts
Make a master list of possible topics. Come back to this list everytime you cannot come up with a topic that is catching your eye. Even just writing this list will get your mental juices running. Check out Hubspot’s free Blog Topic Generator if you need some interesting ideas to get this list started.
Read any interesting blogs lately? Do you have some ideas that you would add to those you read? This is a great place to start and add your own voice to the conversation.
Have a question?
What was the last thing you googled? I betcha that someone else has that question as well… Why don’t you write a blog post answering it.
Be an expert
What marketable skills do you have? Do people come to you with questions frequently about your trade? Why not write an all exclusive guide to something?
Re-use and recreate
Really stuck and cannot think of a new topic? No problem, just take one of your all exclusive guides and break it down into small segments. Each one of those segments can be its own blog piece!
