3 Tips for Overcoming Writers Block

Write sample titles down.  Every time you think of a cool idea for a post, or a possible post, write it down.  Keep a running list of potential blog post titles.  You don’t need to know what you’re going to write to accompany that title, in fact, you may have no idea.  That’s OK.  Write the idea down anyway.  I still have sample post titles from several months ago that I haven’t used.  But, I go back and review them frequently and when one speaks to me, I pick it up and go from there.

Research.  Make sure you’re reading other blogs in your niche.  One small thing or part of a blog piece may spark an idea for a post.  This happens to me all the time.  I add the idea to my running titles list and when I sit down to write, expand on the idea.  You should always be keeping on top of what your competition has out there and what is doing well for others.  Also, included in this should be those blogs whose work you admire and look up to.  You can get a lot of good ideas from those, not to mention, learn a lot too.

Commit to writing 15 minutes every day. Click To Tweet We can all find 15 minutes in our day to sit down and write.  It doesn’t matter what you write.  The important thing is that you write.  Just get it on the page.  Write whatever is on your mind at the moment.  If nothing comes to mind, review your running list of titles and ideas and see if that sparks something.  Getting started is the hardest part.  Once you’re writing, you just might find your flow and keep writing until you have a finished blog post.  On a roll?  Keep writing!  You might even walk away with a batch of posts for your blog.
