Once you’ve written so many articles and blogs, it seems like there is nothing left in the world to write! Of course, we truly know there is. How? There are hundreds of people who write blogs for a living, coming up with anywhere from 1-20 new blog entries a day, sometimes even more. Out of desperation, you may have once or twice tried to begin writing something, only to find that the topic was so narrow you couldn’t write enough. Follow these tips and you’ll be sure to come up with blogs and articles more easily.
Ask Your Friends
While this isn’t the most creative thing in the world, I’ve come up with many article ideas by doing just this. Ask them things that they’d like to know about, or things they’ve always wanted to learn more of. You’d be surprised how many topics you haven’t thought of before! Plus, if they’ve thought about it, surely other people have as well, and are wondering about the same things.
Surf the Web
Whenever I’m feeling especially uninspired, I surf the web to find new things to write about. Every time I find a topic I could write about I bookmark it, that way I don’t forget. After I’m done surfing the web, I come back to all the different topics I bookmarked and start writing!
I love shopping! I spend a lot of time shopping with my friends, and while I do so, I always find new things that I can write about by looking around me. Other times I hear parts of other people’s conversations and I get ideas from that as well. There is so many things that you can think of while you are out in town.
Watch Talk Shows
There are all sorts of different topics on talk shows, so surely you can find one or two things to write about by watching a few. If you don’t like talk shows, there are many other shows that you can find to help you think of things to write about.
Write It Down
Once you have come up with an idea while you are not at your computer, always write it down! I came up a with a few ideas last time I was at the movies, but I didn’t write them down, so unfortunately I have no hope of remembering what they were. Most cell phones have a built-in notepad, so you can use that if you don’t have a real notebook with you.
There are so many things to write about in the world, all you have to do is go out and look for them! Don’t get discouraged when you feel like you can’t think of any more topics, this has happened to me many times but I’ve never stopped writing.
