We all get writers block. When I was a seven-year-old writing about aliens, I got writer's block; when I was twenty, in college, studying to be a journalist, I got writer's block; and now, as a blogger, I get it, too.
So, to tackle this I keep a list. A carefully constructed compilation of content ideas to refresh, recycle, rehash anytime my creativity ain't nowhere to be seen!
1. Debate an idea; find someone else’s blog post, which you disagree with, and write your response to it.
2. Write a weekly roundup of industry-specific news, which would interest your tribe.
3. Use your community. Find nuggets of wisdom in other bloggers' content. Create a list and make sure you tag them on social for credit, or link them in your blog.
4. Have you ever written an e-book or a white paper? Why not publish an excerpt from it, with a call-to-action at the end leading to the full download.
5. Have you hosted or attended a webinar lately? Share the key takeaways from it.
6. What were your most popular posts, last year? Do a little roundup with some SEO-friendly internal links.
7. Recycle some of your YouTube videos into written copy, some people prefer video; some, text.
8. Publish a recent press release on your blog.
9. Write a how-to post for your tribe. Maybe it could be related to a product or service you sell?
10. What are your brand values and key messages? Tell your readers.
A quickie but, hopefully, you can use some of these for your blog, newsletter, or even your social media content.
