What do you manage your blog for? Does it tell the world about your thoughts, or you just have it for your business promotion?
No matter, what the reason of your blogging is – you should always think of its content. What to write about to attract all readers’ attention? How to write a post that all readers will like and share with others?
The best and only tip here is to think of your writing as a way to achieve something, not to beat others. Make a creative and really inspiring writing be your goal, and you will see how easy and pleasant the process of writing a blog post will become!
But even if you can’t live without writing, some moments appear when you just have no inspiration to write, and you do not even know what to write about actually.
And it appears to be so difficult to find a right source of inspiration, because you are just stuck. So, here we are – those ones who will give you some hints about inspiration for your next blog post.
We bet you live in urban areas. Actually, most writers live there. You must admit that it’s quite difficult to be inspired by skyscrapers, hundreds of cars, and people who are always in a hurry.
It is time to visit a countryside! Just walk around, listen to birds, feel all nature smells, observe beautiful landscapes – all these things can be a very powerful source of inspiration. You will be surprised how quickly new ideas will start coming to your head: just do not forget to write them down!
We do not speak about your own kids here, though they can certainly be the great source of inspiration for you. We speak about children in general.
As we all know, they have a totally different mindset, and they imagine the world around them in a totally different way. Just spend some time observing their behavior with adults and everything around. Kids’ approach to the world differs from ours so much!
Big chances are that young individuals will help you come up with a really unexpected but creative idea.
Have you ever thought why music always appear in all most crucial movies scenes? It awakes some feelings and associations in our minds, that help us sympathize a protagonist for example.
The proved fact is that music awakes different triggers in our mind, even when we listen to a song which we don’t really like.
So, just try to listen to different music genres, as they can provide you with new ideas even when you do not expect that.
The 21st century is difficult to call the perfect time for books, because a few people read today. Sad, but true. Technologies, cinematography, and cool gadgets do not leave books a chance to stay afloat, but the truth is that all this staff can’t substitute reading.
When you read a book and take a look at an author’s style and thoughts, you imagine everything in your own way which can become a great source of inspiration for you. Moreover, it’s your perfect chance to create something new after you’ve got inspired by classical pieces of writing.
Why should you sit and try to come up with an idea for writing when you always can write about your own experience? The truth is, a few writers like sharing it, and it is unclear why they do so.
Your experience is the great inspiration source for writing, especially when you write about your NEW experience! Don’t be afraid of trying anything new, as your emotions can help you much with your inspiration searches.
We do not want to say that you should try any extreme sports for example: just find what you’ve never done, and describe it after trying.
A writer is able to find a new experience everywhere. Even when you talk to your friends, they can come up with something you can use as a perfect idea for writing afterwards.
Anyway, sometimes a moment appears, that your friends can’t give you a new piece of inspiration, because you know them very well, and there is nothing new about them to use. Talk to a stranger then! Yes, it’s easier than you think.
His information and experience can help you much because the big chances are that this person will tell you about something you could not even imagine existed.
Certainly, you can’t just meet a person in the street and start talking to him as if you are friends.
But what do we have the Internet for? Join some social medias, websites, or forums to meet new people and talk to them online. If you prefer live communication, you can always join some club of interests.
Even if you are very good with writing, this is not a reason to ignore other fields. Try drawing or playing a guitar for example, become creative elsewhere. Your new hobbies (cooking, flower arranging, etc.) can be a creative spark you’ll need to get inspiration for further writing.
Maybe you have a person who inspires you much? Just talk to him, or read his works and check what he thinks on this or that subject.
Try to view it from as many angles as possible, and you can come up with some very interesting ideas for your future writing.
Do you love what you do? Do you always write with pleasure? Do you consider writing your both work and lifestyle? If you really enjoy what you do – you will be really good with that.
That is why if you do not love writing, maybe there is no need to continue doing that, because you will hardly create something worthy.
Just love what you do, get pleasure from it, enjoy the process of writing itself, be a confident writer – and ideas will find you themselves.
