Blogging Writer's Block   

Hello Everyone!


Have you ever had case of writers block? I know there have been times I stare at a blank screen or a sheet of paper and ask myself "What should I write about today?" Here are a few tips I use to help with blogging writer's block.  

1. Discuss Topics Outside of Your Blog's Focus

I know some people apologize on their blog because they decide to write about other topics outside their intended focus. Why are you apologizing or feeling guilty?!?!?!!! It's YOUR BLOG!! You can write and discuss any topic you want :) In my opinion about various topics gives a blog a more personal touch.

2. With That Being Said…What Topics Interest You The Most? Write About Them!

3. Keep a Topics Journal

By keeping a journal, you can jot down ideas for your upcoming posts, so you won't forget them.

4. Take a Break

Are you in constant blogging overdrive? If so, you may need to take a break little break from blogging. I feel blogging is no fun if I force myself to post or feel rushed. I like to let blogging come naturally. Taking a break doesn't mean you're not dedicated to your blog, but I think we all need a break sometime or another.

5. Don't Get Discouraged

Most likely you'll get ideas you can write about, just give yourself some time :)  

Those are just a few of my tips for blogging writer's block. How do you overcome blogging writer's block or writer's block in general?

I keep a blog journal too where I wrote down any ideas I have for a blog post too! That way if I don't know what to write about I can go back and see what my ideas are.
I also plan and take a lot of pictures ahead of time so if I feel in a rut, I already have something to blog about!

I usually write my post and take pictures ahead of time too, unless I'm busy. I like to have something to blog about too! lol

Thank you! I try to keep a schedule for posting, but sometimes I get off track. That's why some weeks I post back to back especially if haven't blogged in a while.

I also use a notebook for when i don't feel like typing at that moment and a small journal book for all my ideas. My small journal is very helpful with remembering my ideas!

Thank you and you're welcome!

Thank you! I've been doing good with not experiencing writers block the past few months. I think I mainly had writers block last summer when I first started blogging. I like to take breaks, but I don't abandon my blog lol I usually try to keep a few pre blog posts incase I'm going to be busy so I'll have something on my blog.

Great advice that I will keep in mind when I start my own blog. I have had writers block when I have been writing or writing papers in school. It sucks. because you try to think of something to write about but nothing comes to you it is more frustrating then anything. but the next time I have writers block I will keep your advice in mind.
