Writers Block | How to Come Up With Ideas for Your Blog

Coming up with ideas for content can be hard, especially when you add in a splash of writer's block. Over the years I have tested dozens of methods to overcoming writer's block and motivational barriers. What I have come to find, for me at least, is that the environment, mood, and topics at hand mean everything when I am trying to create. In fact, because blog posts aren't the only sort of content that I create, I ventured into the other avenues that I create in, and I tried finding a method that would work across the board; I was unsuccessful. 

Until, I sat down with my essential oil diffuser a cup of hot tea, Hulu, a cute pen, my blogging binder, and my laptop (yes, all of these things) and I decided that I was going to come up with a system that works for me across all the mediums that I create in. This # step system is what I will be sharing with you today, keep reading.

Step #1 Create a Productive Environment

Believe it or not, I am most productive early in the morning, laying in bed with a hot cup of tea and with the playing TV in the background. If I am not in the mood to listen to the TV, then I'll listen to music. I have a few Spotify playlists dedicated to blogging and writing.

Step #2 Have All Your Essential Tools

When I work, I like to make sure that I have everything that I need within arms reach, this way, I do not have to get up and move. This is great when you are trying to maintain focus and not become distracted by other things.

Step #3 Have A Running List of Ideas

The first thing in the morning, I add to my list of running ideas. This is a digital list that I have saved in the cloud, and I keep a few printed copies with me. Whenever I have a new idea, I add it to the printed copy then when I have time I add it to the digital one.

I make a point to add 3 topics per blogging session. So if I do 3 batches in one day then ideally I'll add 9 ideas to the list. It doesn't always work out like that though, so as long as I get the initial 3 topics for the first session, it is a good day, anything else is extra.
