Days When You Have Nothing To Blog About
If you’ve been blogging for a while you have most likely had one of those days where you really want to post something but have absolutely no ideas for a post. That’s pretty normal to experience especially if you’ve been blogging for a while.
I think people often tend to think blogging is easier than it actually is. It’s a lot of work coming up with new and interesting topics to post about, creating the post, editing and finally posting. And sometimes your brain may run out of ideas for a little while and that’s okay.
I’ve had a number of these moments and over the years I have found some tricks that can help you combat the writers block. Here are some things I do when I run out of ideas for new content:
Lifestyle posts are always a great idea when you have nothing else to write about. If you have something going on in your life you can always write a post about that and talk about it. It may be a nice change for your audience and I feel like it’s a nice way to connect with readers in a more personal way.
Even if you don’t have anything specific going on at the moment you can still create lifestyle posts. Try doing a What I Eat In A Day post or A Day In My Life blog. You will obviously most likely eat that day so all you have to is take some pictures and post them with some information about what you ate. And the Day In My Life post would just be you writing down what you did throughout the day which isn’t too difficult. These are just some ideas, there are a lot more lifestyle type posts you can create. You just have to think about what’s going on with you at the moment and share something about that. Even if you are just sitting on your bed binge watching something on Netflix you could make a post about that!
Reblog are a fantastic way of both putting content out there and supporting a blog/blogger you enjoy. If you come across a post that you really enjoy try to bookmark or save it. When you feel like you don’t have anything to write, come back to the post and share it.
Most people really appreciate it when someone shares their post (I know I really do) and it can be a great way to help them get new readers. Plus, you’re able to share something on your blog too which is great for your SEO, algorithm etc. Reblogs are such a win-win for everyone.
If the writers block is really coming in hard and you absolutely don’t have anything to write just simply don’t. Sit back and take some time off blogging. A lot of times, writers block happens because you’re overwhelmed or pushing yourself to write. I generally do my best writing when I’m in the right mood and I’m sure other writers and bloggers will relate to this. When you’re creative you can only be creative when the mood strikes. So, take some time off and wait till that happens and you may just come up with some fantastic content.
One tip I would like to share about taking breaks is that meditation does wonders. When you’re having a creative block, meditating can really help calm your mind and help your ideas flow more freely. Whenever I experience a creative block or writers block I like to sit down or lie down and meditate and just let my thoughts flow and usually after a while the ideas just come to me. I would 10/10 recommend trying meditation when experiencing a creative or writers block.
What I like to do when I don’t have anything else to blog about is share something fun or amusing with my readers. I like to share memes or a funny YouTube video or something like that. It’s a great option because you don’t exactly have to come up with an entire post and at the same time your readers will enjoy something funny or amusing. It’s a nice break from more serious posts too.
Talk To Your Readers
If nothing else works, you can always just talk to your readers. How? Well, all you have to do is write an Ask Me Something or Share Your Assumptions About Me post (or something along those lines). They’re really fun to do because you get to interact with your audience and a lot of the questions/assumptions etc are super fun and some are so random which makes it even better. I absolutely love doing these types of posts. Plus, you’ll be able to write one more post with the answers so technically you’ll get two posts where you don’t have to come up with specific content.
I hope these tips were helpful for anyone going through writers block right now. Have you ever experienced writers block? How do you deal with writers block?
