Would you like to generate some personal blog post ideas? Unlike penning down a fresh article where you need to figure out the structure of all the elements that will make up your content, generating some ideas for your blog could be as random as possible.
Ever had that avalanche of thoughts of the things you could be blogging about only when you are doing things that have nothing to do with blogging? It happens to me all the time. These are usually tons of brilliant ideas all coming together. They are flashing here and there.
Yes, they keep coming. However, back then and a couple of times recently, I simply failed to take notes. I told myself whenever the time is right I would surely remember.
The biggest lie I told myself
That was where I got it all wrong! I was only relying on my memory. Moreover, with so many tabs literally open in my mind, my memory was always going to fail me. And it did fail me. There were times I stood in front of my screen and did not know shit to write about.
I lost the fun in blogging which led to procrastinating. And soon I thought this was stressful and of course since no one was paying for it, why bother?
Blogging is fun, that’s what they said – Unknown.
But blogging or creating content isn’t just about making money. That’s one the things I wish I knew before getting into it – a topic for another day.
What I am just trying to say is the same could happen to you too. Some people call it a writer’s block when you are unable to think what to write next. And it is what it is, you are literally hitting a block.
Good thing is you could actually overcome it by planning ahead, conceptualizing the content you would like to create. That is where generating personal blog post ideas for your blog really comes into play. If you have ever been in that spot before and did not get out, here’s a couple of things you could do about it.
Be mindful of your thoughts.
