Blogging successfully requires time spent on writing posts...we all know that. But sometimes the writer's block sets in and the blog starts to feel stagnant...
Here are a few ideas of what you can blog about today:
Call a friend and have them make suggestions on what to write. Sometimes if you are feeling like a blog couch potato, this can be a great way to get some ideas bounced off a friend. The results of giving someone else control (somewhat) of your content can be surprising - in a good way.
Write a list. Readers typically LOVE lists...(mmmm?)Create lists of your favorite things to do in the summer/ fall/ winter etc., what's in your purse, what you just bought on Amazon, list places you love to visit in your area, list all your tastiest recipes and where to find them...make sure you add links to interesting sites related to your list. Ask your friends what they'd like to see a list about!
How To...How to's and Tutorials are big news! If you can share a way to accomplish something in a different way, your readers will appreciate it and forward to their friends or link on their blog. Make it easy to understand, post photos showing how you glued that feather on or spray painted the chair.
Before and AftersThe How To leads beautifully into a Before and After post. It gets increasingly difficult to remember to take that Before photo...so no matter what you're working on make sure to take a quick shot of a Before. Then when you're finished and happy with your "creation" (whatever that may be), then take many After shots to share with readers. They love it. I love it!
