HBS 005: How to Get Unstuck and Write a Blog Post Today

blog post ideasHave you ever wanted to post something of value to your blog, but just got stuck and couldn’t think of a great topic?

Call it “writer’s block” or whatever, it happens to all bloggers at some point, and can be very frustrating.

Sometime it’s just having too much going on, other times it’s simply a mental block. Whatever it is, I have some solutions and ideas for you!

In this podcast, you’ll discover:

  • some excellent ways to “spark” ideas and get your creative juices flowing
  • how to borrow ideas from other peoples’ content without copying
  • a technique that many bloggers use to create content, and why it’s never a good idea to do it
  • where to get the best ideas for what to blog about

Would love your feedback, either here or privately!

  1. Someone somewhere once said a job of a writer (we can substitute blogger) is to turn up at their desk at 9am and write,,, and that is my philosophy for me and my writing ;)

      If it’s a job, yeah….. :)

      For the part time business builder, where the blogging is optional, it can be a struggle sometime juggling that with other responsibilities.

  2. One of my mentors says writing an article or blog post is often simply reacting or responding to what someone else has said. That should be easy enough, right? Not always. You’ve given lots of great tips and ideas here, Eldon. I especially like the infographic you linked to.

  3. Eldon, Some good points made there. Inspiration is where you find it, but sometimes you have to go looking for it. Thanks for the tips!

  4. Thanks for these great ideas to get the creativity flowing, Eldon.

    There are many ways to get unstuck. I like the suggestion about borrowing. I think that bloggers too frequently think they have to come up with totally original content.

    It’s much easier to join an existing discussion than to try to start a totally new one.

    • Eldon Beard says:

      David, I think most bloggers use other peoples’ content to inspire their own. In most niches, there really isn’t that much new under the sun, but there is opportunity to put it in a new light and reach people.

  5. Hello Eldon! Great tips my friend! When I get writers block I just go and read the FB news feed there is always alot going on there, one can get many idea’s just from watching and listening to what everyone it talking about.. Thanks for sharing.. Have a Wonderful X-Mas! Chery :))

  6. Eldon,

    I actually read an article reporting writer’s block was actually when we experience ‘nothingness’ and that he did not think that was the case in most of us. He said that what we are really experiencing is ‘writer’s log jam’, although it is equally as frustrating. It’s the inability to write because of too many influences, too much information, and too many different ideas banging against each other in our head.

    Personally, I find that taking an exercise break works wonders–it untangles my cluttered mind.

  7. Eldon Beard says:

    I think the concept of “log jam” makes sense, to me that’s basically the same as a “block”.

    I like this….makes sense….

    …inability to write because of too many influences, too much information, and too many different ideas banging against each other in our head.
