It has been said time and time again (and I am one of the people who have been saying it all the time,) you need to post to your blog on a regular basis. Posting to your blog on a regular basis not only keeps the readers of your blog interested and informed, but it also helps to increase your search engine rankings. You see, the more you post to your blog, the more relevant the search engines will find your blog, which naturally, will increase your page rankings. And let’s face it, one of the biggest goals of an Internet marketer is to have a high page ranking.
That being said, it can sometimes be difficult to think of things to write about for a regular blog post. If you are adding a new post on a daily basis, chances are that at one time or another, you are going to run out of ideas, draw a blank and just sit there, staring at the computer screen.
When your mind goes blank and writer’s block sets in, have no fear; there some ways that you can get your creative juices flowing again so that you can create an eye-catching, engaging and informative post for your blog.
Here are some of the things that I do when I draw a blank when I am writing a blog post:
- Walk away. The worst thing that that you can do when you have writer’s block is sit there and wait for something to pop into your head; it’s not going to happen. It’s like watching a pot of water boil; the more you watch it, the longer the water takes to boil. So, just walk away from your computer and see what ideas will flow into your head as you do something other than stare at your blank computer screen.
- Look for inspiration. Pick up a book, a magazine, the newspaper, etc, and see if you can’t find any information to write a blog post about. For instance, if your blog is in the craft niche, then perhaps you could have a look at a crafting magazine. Inside such a magazine, you are sure to find a new tip or idea to share with the readers of your blog.
- Take a walk. When I find myself with a case of writer’s block, I often put my shoes on and head outside to take a walk. There is nothing like fresh air and some exercise to get your creative juices flowing.
