4 Ways To Beat Writers Block

As a writer you Will encounter Writers Block. Anyone that says they haven’t is ultimately a liar.

What Exactly Is Writers Block?

Well writers block is when a Writer is Stuck. It’s when they can’t form the words in their heads, or come up with topics to write about.
If your a freelancer it may just be the death of you… not literally of course, but it will be hard.

Step 1: Great TV

The best way (Read: Easiest) to get Creative Juices Flowing is by watching Great TV. What Defines “Great TV” is Shows with amazing in-Depth writing.
For me the best show to defeat writers block with is Game Of Thrones. Other great options are:

  • It Always Sunny In Philadelphia
  • Lost
  • Mom, And
  • Curb Your Enthusiasm

You’ll notice that these shows either fall into thevDrama, or Comedy Genre. That’s because Drama’s are often the most well-written shows, but Comedy’s tend to build stronger more relatable characters; A skill that all writers need.

Step 2: Read A Great Book

The only thing better than watching a well-Written TV Show, is Reading A Well-Written Book.
Not a Little Kid book like the Magic Treehouse, but a more advanced book such as The Great Gatsby, or Farenheit 451.

Step 3: Take A Bath

Epson Salt is optional, but it helps.
Believe it or not but I do a lot of my writing in the bath. Have I dropped my phone a couple times? Yes. But my writing is more… Relaxed. Just as I am.
Relaxation tends to help beat writers block, that’s why you can also take a Walk, have a picnic, Meditate, or do whatever relaxes you. They’ll all work the same.

Step 4: Take A Break

On average for every 5 Posts I publish on my blog I have one post kept in my “Vault”.
My “Vault” is a place where I keep some posts that I Publish when I take a break.
When it comes to SEO (Site Engine Optimization) it can hurt your blog, and cause a decrease in Rankings of you break your Schedule. Yet when it comes to writing if you don’t take a break you develop writers block, and your writing gets Bad.
So I have some backup posts for when I need a break, but so that I won’t break my schedule.
I suggest taking a 1 week break at least every 5 weeks to replenish yourself.

5 Ways To Set Up Your Blog

Blogging is more than publishing a story, an article, or a Photograph on a site. So many people forget that blogging is also about the site itself. You need to set-up your site so that your articles are accessible, people can easily subscribe, and so that it reflects you.

1. Setting Up For Subs

One of the most important parts of blogging is subscribers–your audience. That’s why you want to make it easy for them to subscribe. Do this by adding an email subscribe form in your sites widget footer area.

If you have a WordPress blog than you can also place an easy blue one-click subscriber button for other wordpress members.

You can also, employ the help of MailChimp. Aka set up a pop-up subscription form after someone has been on your site for a set amount of time. 10 seconds; 10 minutes; that’s up to you.

2. Article Visibility

So this here can get more tricky than it should be. Let me just ask you a simple question: How do you want your articles to show?

  1. Do you want people to see lists of excerpts of your posts (the first paragraph or two), and then see a “Click To Continue Reading” embed (Showing featured photo is optional)
  2. Do you want them to see your posts listed your featured Photo, and the post title, again with an embed that says “Click Here To Read” (That’s what you call a “Card”)
  3. Do you want the same thing as number “2” except for you also want them to see the first sentence or two, of your post? Or maybe a short description of said post?

These are the 3 most common, and professional ways to show your posts.

You rarely see a blog, or site that shows their posts other than like those 3 ways. So choose one.

Next decide if you want people to immediately see your posts when they visit your site. They can see:

A. A Posts Page, or

B. A Homepage

A Posts Page Is a page that displays all of your most recent and/or features posts.

A Home Page Is a page that shows your sites services, description, or really whatever you want.

If you run a buisness, and this site is for that we suggest having a Homepage. However for blogs we suggest just having a normal posts page.

Now after you’ve made your decisions as to what you want you just have to find a them that supports the format you chose.

Now available themes vary depending on your website host, whether it be GoDaddy, WordPress, Weebly, WIX, or whatever. But most web hosts offer you hundreds of free themes that will allow you to build your site to your liking.

3. Pages

Are you just googling photos for your posts, and using them? Congratulations! That’s illegal, and you could get sued for Thousands of dollars.

Now personally I suggest not using random photos for your posts, and instead using Pexels or other Stock Photos. (Stock photos are photos that you can use freely), but did you know that in many cases a simple page for your site could help protect you again lawsuits?

It’s called a “Disclaimer”, and it’s not the only essential page for your site. There are also “Terms & Conditions”, and “Privacy Policy” pages that can help protect you from lawsuits. Now of course these pages can take a lot of time, or to be safer you may have to pay a lawyer, or some other professional to write one up for you. But it’s worth it, if at the end of the day your not homeless. Right?


NOTE: A “Disclaimer”, “Terms & Conditions”, and “Privacy Policy” page will NOT protect you from every legal liability. It is suggested to avoid any images, or anything else which may be subject to copyright.


Pages Can Also Be…

  • About Pages giving your sites history, and other fun facts about your site
  • (Only if you) If you have a Homepage, then you need a separate page for your blog posts
  • Contact pages so that people can contact you
  • Guest Post pages which tell people about how (if you do) accept guest posts, your Guest Post categories, rules, and how to contact you.

And more! Pages can really be whatever you want!

4. Logo

Your sites Logo is very important for growth, and recognition. Like did you know that Targets logo, is just as known as the Target franchise itself? When most people think of starbucks they imagine their logo. So what’s yours?

A logo can be anything, but there are some things it should not be. Like:

  • A Picture of yourself, a selfie (Unless it’s a collage)

That’s all.

You need a logo that represents your site. Take my site Brightleigh’s logo for example:

It’s simple, and it let’s you know that my site is about animals. Primarily dogs.

Then there are also logos that are just random, simple, elegant, and unique like the Walmart Logo. It’s just a couple lines really. Again look at my other site Darkleigh’s logo for an example of this:


NOTE: Me using my own sites logos goes back to number “3”. You see Starbucks, Walmart, and just about every big chain retailer has copywrighted their logo. So its illegal for me to use it in my blog. This is just an example of being smart, and not infringing copywright.


These logos are easy to remember, and the Darkleigh one you’ll never see elsewhere. Because its unique. Just create a logo like that for yourself.

5. Personalizing Your Blog (Optional)

There aren’t many ways to personalize your blog, and several themes dont offer ways to personalize your blog. That’s why this is Optional. But nonetheless I’ll still telly ou how to of it’s an option.

Here are many of the ways which you can customize your blog, or site so long as you have the correct theme:

  • Your Logo (We already talked about this)
  • Your Font. Hey, Maybe instead of basic font you want one that’s thicker, skinnier, or heavily italicized.
  • Your Font Color. Blue font, pink font, green font, blue font. (Yes, I know I said “Blue Font” twice) preferably use a font that goes well with…..
  • Your sites color. You could have your site be black, or grey instead of white. This actually can be very good in some cases, like with my site Lichen. Now Lichen is green, so I made my entire site green with grey font.

These are some of the most common ways to personalize your site. Mainly because their aren’t many other ways… but the Wonderful World Wide Web is always improving at a mile a minute. I’m sure theirs gonna be a thousand more by the time 5 years Flies  bye.

Reasons To Turn Blogs Into Vids (& How To Do It)

I’ll Cut to the chase: Some People are lazy. They like to listen; they don’t like to read. There’s one reason, but please allow me to show you an additional 2 reasons.

1. A Video Speaks

When you read a blog post what do you hear?

When you write a blog post what do you hear?
Do you hear a confident voice when you read other people’s blogs?
Do you think they have a confident voice when they read your blogs?
Videos, and podcasts have a voice, because people hear your voice. They don’t get to create the voice that they hear like they do when they’re reading. The only voice they hear is yours. Which means you can better connect with your audience.
It’s a recurring topic on this blog: Emphasis!

2. Audience

Yet another recurring topic: Audience.
You want your blog to appeal to as many audience’s as possible! And videos have their own audiences!
That’s really all… it’s an audience you can appeal too…

How To Turn Posts Into Video’s

It’s very simple. Just follow these steps:

Choose a post

Gather up at least 10, or 15 photos that work with that post

Create a slideshow that lasts 3-5 minutes showing those photos

Record yourself reading your post out loud, that is around the same length as the podcast

Put the recording of you reading your post, over the slideshow

Done!
Then you have several other options:

Post on YouTube

Post on Spotify, or another podcast service (If you choose to just do this then you may just need the voice over)

Or, post on your site
