Which is harder: writing a blog or writing a novel? While you can argue for either side, there is one element of blog writing that is harder: you have to keep creating quality content day after day after day. When you first get into blogging and have lots of steam, this can seem easy. But once you get a few months or even a few years in, this becomes difficult.
Have you hit a roadblock? No worries; we have you covered. Below are some ideas to help you generate quality content when struggling.
Head to Google and just start typing something, then see what Google offers up as a suggestion. This may seem strange, but it is simple way to get creative juices flowing.
While you could ask a stranger for blog post ideas, you could also turn asking strangers things into a blog or vlog. This is an incredibly popular type of video, so why not give it a try?
Know about what? Anything, as long as it is related to your content. Not only is this a post in and of itself, but it will certainly inspire other posts.
Then come up with some solutions. A key to quality content is that it should solve problems for your readers, and this is one way to ensure that is the case.
Once you see what they love, start brainstorming related ideas. Chances are these ideas will connect with them just as the original posts did.
This can be anything that relates to your blog. If you have a travel blog, teach people how to craft the perfect itinerary. If you have a fashion blog, teach people how to DIY some accessories.
Ghost writers, that is. Sometimes when you are out of juice, you need to let someone else take over. Also an option are guests posts from known bloggers.
Everyone loves a good story, and if you have one related to your theme, your audience will want to hear it. Getting personal is a great way to connect with readers.
