Finding Ideas and Inspiration For Your Articles Or Blog

I can understand completely how a writer, even a really creative and adrenaline-pumped blog writer or freelance writer, can just run dry on ideas. It can come to you….just like that! Out of the blue. It’s just like waking up and asking yourself, “Hey f95zone, where’d my nose go?” Experienced freelance writers, web content producers or blog writers know that writing is a little bit like Kung-Fu. You have to keep at it, keep practicing and also never let your own head get too big.

For example, sometimes people load praises on you so much that you think you’re right there at the top with the big timers. So, when the writer’s block hits you, you don’t quite know where to place your pride and yet….you’d rather be hammered to death than admit that you’ve run out of ideas. The ugly head of ‘writer’s block’ invites a terrible monster and by then, writing, instead of bringing you joy, becomes a miserable chore.

Whenever I run out of ideas, here’s what I do….I blog-hop! Yup, I hop from one blog to another, reading into the lives of these bloggers in hope that their positive (or negative, depending on what blog you’re reading) vibes will rub off on me. It helps too nike tech if you keep a notepad, a laptop, palmtop (or whatever else that you can keep close to you all the time) with you so that when the mind idles and wander off, you can pull that equipment out and start jotting down ideas and topics that you can write about.

I find headlines and news to be of incredible help to me, as far as finding ideas for a blog topic or an article in concerned. It doesn’t have to DIRECTLY relate to what you’re writing about, you see. It’s almost like finding a similarity between the two, your article/topic and the news and headlines. I don’t know if I am actually making sense to you but it helps me, so, I’m just sharing this with you.

In the toilet…or while having a nice, calming drink after work…take the time to look around you and actually see the things around you. You’ll be surprised at how your creative juices GoDaddy Email login can be jolted alive by the simplest things in life….like, a frog jumping in the garden, or your kids playing the piano, or the flailing curtails flapping its tails in the breeze.

Did you ever notice how some people are always two years behind ( and two dollars too short..:-) All of the latest news, views and proverbial current events that drive our economic culture? Blogs have been around for years now….with many of us using them as simple, but effective tools to drive boatloads of backsides to our products, services and offers for longer now than I care to remember.

Yet – with all of the recent attention that blogging has gotten ( full page magazine spreads in popular cultural and financial magazines of various sorts) and…the upcoming presidential elections seemingly getting closer day by day, more and MORE people are checking out, and more importantly, jumping into the blogosphere themselves.

Before I get WAY too off track – the simple conundrum I continuously see is this: Blogging is expensive. No, not from a hard cost standpoint, but from the perspective of the TIME required to do it well. And many people who come to me for help…want to MAKE money with that time, and their blog, rather than simply waste it away. And the issue they all seemingly have not yet tackled is this: Google Ad sense advertisements ( and Yahoo Publisher network contextual as well) are a dying business model for monetizing a blog, or small network of sites.

The good news? You have options! You can sell ad space directly from your own site…using free, ( or inexpensive ) software plugins that can be incorporated into your existing CMS framework…especially if you are running WordPress as your blogging platform. Yet – I see almost NO ONE in the small business network community doing it – other than the “big boys”, most of the mom and pop bloggers ( who are often FAR better writers and much more entertaining to read than the drab opportunists that sell get rich at home opportunities) are stuck like chuck and feel relegated to placing Google ads all over their sites to make some quick cash.
