Every blogger eventually feels like they have run out of ideas. To help counter this, you need to have a repository of ideas ready to go. I suggest trying to write a list of 100 tips. You may not ever publish this list, but having it gives you a place to store those little ideas as they come to you. More importantly it gives you a place to go when you need inspiration.
I use this method for Productivity501. When I have some time to write, but none of my ideas seem good, I’ll browse through my list and usually I’ll find something that clicks. This idea is very similar to the post about inspiration not being evenly distributed. You have to capture inspiration when it comes to use when it is lacking.
The nice thing about a 100 Tips file, is that it can turn into a nice post. Top 100 lists are the types of things people love to bookmark and share with others. By taking the time to capture these little ideas as they come, you’ll give yourself some good fodder for inspiration as well as developing what could be a flagship post.
You can even make ten Top 10 lists, that’ll teach them, expecting fresh content every day :)
Great tip, thanks!
