Bloggers are like artists – they express their thoughts using the best words possible to help trigger discussions and influence opinions about certain topics. However, when they experience writer’s block, they are muted from the world, their means of communication robbed from them.
As a blogger, you should take precaution to prevent this from happening!
While writer’s block is a regular occurrence, there are lots of ways to minimize its damning effects and help keep you writing compelling blog posts on a consistent basis. To do this, we need to refer how an artist moderates his creative juices, allowing him to come up with artworks that stand the test of time.
Carry a notebook
Artists are known to carry notebooks and write down their creative ideas at moment’s notice. This goes to show that inspiration can strike from out of nowhere, and it is the responsibility of artists to capture these ideas using their notebooks and filter them down once they transfer them onto their desired media.
How should you follow this as a blogger: While a notebook ought to do the job, using productivity apps like Evernote and Workflowy help you transfer your notes easier from your phones to your computer where you write your blog entries.
Organize your notes
Organization is form. Amidst the chaos found in the notebooks of artists are dots that seamlessly connect to form a prophetic and grandiose artwork. The great ideas in a notebook don’t mean a thing if the dots aren’t connected. This is done by presenting the ideas in a coherent, understandable, and unified manner to make all the pieces fit together, logically and artistically.
How should you follow this as a blogger: A way of putting your ideas into order as a blogger is to set an editorial calendar. For a month, you will plot out the articles on specific dates in your calendar so you will have time to prepare for writing all these. Work your way with a particular topic every month and cover every possible ground you can to milk all the topic’s worth. This way, you cultivate a content strategy to prepare ahead of time so you can write them all out while you’re still inspired and feeling creative.
