How many of you have had to write a blog post on short notice, but had serious writer’s block? I bet quite a few of you know how that feels. You don’t have any new photos for an outfit post, you already did your “weekly roundup”, and all the other ideas you have feel too overdone. Despite all that, you still need a post ASAP! What happens now?
Don’t get discouraged by your writer’s block
Everyone gets it at some point in their life, whether it’s for an essay, a post, or even a novel. Just keep thinking, and you’ll figure something out! I’m going to tell you a secret: this post was fueled by writer’s block. Instead of getting discouraged by it, I decided to write about it.
Try to find inspiration
Whether you want to find inspiration on Pinterest or in your daily life, this is a very useful way to come up with a blog post idea. I know I’ve been inspired by trends I see on the street, cute school supplies, and things I see in stores. All you have to do is keep your eyes peeled!
Ask others for input
When in doubt, ask a friend if they would read a blog post about “insert topic here”. If they would, you should totally run with it and write an awesome post! Although you should keep in mind that people can be pretty opinionated and you should only write about something that speaks to you.
Accept that it might not be your best post ever
I don’t know if it’s just me, but I want every post I write to be better than the last. While that would be totally awesome, it’s just not feasible, especially when you have writer’s block. Obviously the post will be better than that one you have way back in your archives from when you first started blogging, but you get my point. Don’t sweat it, you’ll write an absolutely stellar post soon!
I hope that next time you have a case of writer’s block, you’ll remember this post and get inspired! For those of you who are currently suffering from writer’s block: Don’t worry homie, you got this!
