As a blogger, there are times when everything just flows and you can’t keep up with all of your blog post ideas. But there can also be times when it’s a bit more difficult to think of new content. It happens to all of us. However, there are ways to find inspiration and get the ideas flowing again. Here’s a few techniques that have worked for me:
One of the best ways to gain inspiration for your blog is to read. Blogs, magazines, articles, books; read as much and as often as possible. If you read something new everyday, then you’ll never run out of ideas to blog about. Not only will reading help you gain inspiration, but your writing will become stronger too.
I’ve already mentioned how much I love Pinterest a few times on this blog. In my opinion, Pinterest is one of the most inspiring spaces on the internet. It allows you to collect creative ideas and pin them onto online boards. I personally think that it’s an excellent tool for bloggers as you can discover loads of pins that could inspire a blog post, whether that’s a motivational quote, an outfit look or a cake recipe. It’s also very useful for blog tips; I’ve found loads of information about topics such as photography, blog promotion and SEO.
Write Down Blog Titles and Ideas
Inspiration can strike at any moment, so it’s a good idea to keep a notebook (or a note-taking app on your phone) handy at all times for when you get a spark of inspiration. Write down any ideas that come to your mind, even if it’s just a post title. That way, you have a list of blog post ideas ready to be developed and written.
Research Trending Topics
Use social media to find out the topics that are trending in your blog niche. Researching trending topics means that you will discover what people are interested in and what’s on everyone’s mind at that time. Find a topic that piques your curiosity and write down your thoughts and opinions about it.
Get Off The Computer
Simply getting out and changing your environment can be very beneficial. Go for a walk, take some time off to unwind or visit somewhere new. Your creative flow will be back in no time!
So those are the ways that help me find inspiration for blog posts. It’s also important to remember to open your eyes and observe everything; inspiration can be found everywhere!
