I’m sure this happens to every blogger sooner or later: your idea well dries up. It might be a long creativity dry spell, or maybe it’s just a temporary slump and you’re like “drat, I’m supposed to post tomorrow and I have nothing ready.”
Well, here are some handy tips to keep you going – or at least to help you fill in the gaps until your creativity springs gets going again. If you’re stuck for blog post ideas, you can:
Search the internet for “blog post ideas.” You’ll come across dozens of far more creative and influential bloggers than yours truly who have long lists of ideas, or fabulous tips for getting out of a slump.
Write a “top ten” list. Or a “top five,” or “top seventeen.” People love lists, and you can write about almost anything: My Top Ten Favorite Books, The Top Five Sites for Basket-Weaving Enthusiasts, Eight Things Never to Say to Your New Boss, etc.
Do a blog post with quote pictures. Everybody loves quote images, and plus, images make your blog more attractive for Pinterest users.
Write a blog post like this one. Yep, that’s why I’m writing this post this week – I was out of ideas. So there you go.
