3 Ways to Do to Stop Blogging Block and Create a Better Blog

Blogging Block No More!  3 Ways to Do to Stop Blogging Block and Create a Better Blog

Got a bad case of the blogging block?  Here are 3 ways to get rid of it forever:

1.  Subscribe to a Google Alert service. 
Do you perform regular searches on a particular topic?  Google Alert can help automate your usual queries.  Simply provide the keywords and Google Alert can help you beat your blogging block by running a search for you everyday and then send you an alert via e-mail.  You can also track certain information such as business trends, industry reports and competitor activities through this service.

2.  Catch up on your reading.
Get your updates from sources other than the internet.  Books, magazines, newspapers and trade journals are excellent sources of new information… and inspiration.  Instead of just limiting your magazine or newsletter subscription to your topic of choice, expand your knowledge and read about related stuff. 

Say for example your blog is about technology and gadgets.  If you’ve been hit by blogging block, try to read on other related subjects such as physical and psychological problems caused by new technology, people who choose to go without technology, wastes and pollution caused by technology, risks and dangers about using certain gadgets, etc.  Don’t be limited by your subject.  Expand it.

3.  Socialize.
One way to know the world better is to leave your computer for a few hours and get out of the house.  It’s amazing how much stuff you can take inspiration from outside of your home or office area.  Go to events, attend seminars, see the new museum exhibits, even travel.  Refreshed and renewed, you can go home and beat blogging block to a pulp.

Im sure you have your own way to get rid of blogging block… Would you mind sharing it?

    i agree… there are times that im in the middle of creating an article when suddenly im experiencing a mental block… hehehe

  • I just wrote about that. Actually, I’m constantly writing about overcoming writer’s block. What better “job” is there than one where socializing helps you do a better job, instead of being considered a waste of time. *sighs in contentment*

  • Yes, agree about the Google Alert. I am using it everyday, but after all Google knows that is not a unique text, but on the other hand it brings visitors.

  • @ Milan – thanks for dropping by, Yup Google Alert Rocks.

  • Google alerts does the job of helping find something to write about pretty well.

    It has saved me from blogger’s block on several occassions.

  • @Jhay – thanks for sharing your thoughts

  • @ melo villareal – No worries mate! Glad to be here.

  • I think being out in public helps me write better. I usually take my laptop with me and write. It helps free up your mind. Sometimes I don’t realize I’m blogging, because I’m just writing about what I’m observing.

  • @ Barry – great Suggestion I also do that, bringing laptop in a coffee shop then write anything a i can think of or anything that i can observe.

  • I love Google alerts especially when I find my own articles and posts being listed. I also use Congoo which doubles my list of potential ideas.

  • @ steve – google alerts is really helpful you will receive a lot of news and updates about the specific keyword that you will subscribe for…. I havent tried Congoo yet
