There are times when a blogger, like any other writer, will ‘loose the muse.’ Every idea that comes to mind seems either trite or dull or, worse still, no ideas come to mind. What’s a blogger to do? How to beat writer’s block? Here are five tactics that just might clear away the cobwebs and allow you to find an inspiring idea for another great post:
Start with the news! Open up your favorite news page or open a newspaper and see what catches your attention. What are the politicians up to today? Any pending legislation that worries you or flat out scares you? Or perhaps someone is running for office or proposing a law that you may want to publicly support.
Some celebrity is sure to be in trouble again; have anything to say about that? Maybe you have an idea about who should be dating or marrying who. Have any prominent people died? A nice memorial post for a noteworthy person may be in order. What happened “On This Date” in past years? Some past events are worth researching and writing about.
