Do the ideas to write for your blog come easy to you? Sometimes there are a lot of ideas in your head but when you sit down to actually writing them down, the mind goes blank. We all know to write these ideas down as they enter our heads or imaginations, but I find it hard to carry a paper and pen with me at all times. How can you? I do not find it feasible although I have actually tried to keep a notebook with me but it looks odd and I do not want to look I am obsessed with my blog! Although sometimes I feel I am!!
So how can you remember those ideas? You can write them down if it works for you, but in my opinion, the easiest and the most interesting way to make posts is to transfer the ideas right out of your real life. The real life incidents and events can very easily give us fodder for our thoughts. For this kind of thing to work without remembering, all we need to do is to go through life with a little bit of awareness and better observation skills. I am almost certain that we can find more ideas this way than we will have time to write.
Some of the ideas can come right out of the magazines we read or the news that we feel interested in watching. As you are browsing through various magazines and reading them, think about how each news and article relates to your blog and its theme. Current News and events also reveal people’s behaviors and how they handle different situations. Staying current in your area of blogging will not only keep your blog fresh but also make you an expert in that area and more and more people would want to read you.
All bloggers surf the Internet, read numerous blogs every day. Its okay to read popular blogs but make sure you are not regurgitating the same content. Social directories and discussion forums are a good source of a lot of material. People are always asking questions in the discussion forums and one of the simplest ideas is to answer some of the questions in your post.
Pay attention to the conversations you have with your friends, family and co-workers and you’ll be surprised how many ideas can originate. Just before going to bed, a lot of us have experienced all day’s worth of events going through our heads all at once! You must have experienced it sometime? All these ideas are going to vanish by the morning but this is the time to simply jot down the idea in some shorthand to get back to it later in the morning! Of course for this to work, you don’t need to be carrying notebooks and pens around in public, and this should be the easiest of all methods to convert those ideas into great posts!
