4 Ways to Succeed in Managing Writer’s Block
Are you suffering from writer’s block? Being a blogger is indeed a busy job. Bloggers have to write almost every day and sometimes they have to create guest posts for other blogs too. If you are too damn busy in this schedule, definitely every so often, you may experience writer’s block and or feel completely lost as to what to write on next. I’m coming up with a few tips that will help you deal with the writer’s block and generate some interesting topics on demand.
1. Step Away from your Laptop
Sometimes, taking a break greatly helps to get your thoughts together. Turn off your laptop and do something interesting impertinent to writing. Watch your favorite TV show, movie, head to the gym, chat with your loved ones or do something that make you feel more relaxed and refreshed. By the time you turn on your laptop, you should be in a better frame of mind to write on some great topics.
2. Research and Read
Read one of your competitors’ blogs to come up with some great ideas. Comment on your competitors’ blogs and discuss your point of view related to the post. Check out news sites related to your industry, get on Twitter and write your comments on different industry blogs. Head over to social media platforms and join the conversation. You can even create your own discussion and tweet it.
3. Do Something Different
If you are too exhausted to write on the same topic, it does not mean that you are not creative anymore. You can interview different bloggers who can give you interesting replies to your questions that you can post on your blog. If you are unable to find some interesting bloggers who can give you a response on a short period of time, you may search their views on the existing content and quote them. Create a post in which you can add point of views of a few top bloggers on the same topic.
4. Create a Round-Up Post
Roundups are probably one of the coolest ways to add a repeated content to your blog’s calendar. You can create a list of a few best posts that come up in your industry. Creating such interesting round-ups will surely make your readers come back to your blog again and again and they start trusting you as a useful resource. You can write on the best tweets, forum posts, best blog posts, news items or a combination of these.
I hope these tips will surely help you get over writer’s block and make you do something different that your readers will love.
