EVERY blogger has felt stuck when writing a post. Sometimes, I have a really awesome concept for a blog post then I get started and my mind goes blank or.... I have a bunch of ideas that I just don't know how to start (LOL.)
So I am here to tell you that it is COMPLETELY okay to feel stuck. You may be saying well sure it is okay but how can I get through it. Here's some ideas.
Take a break. If you are trying way too hard to come up with an idea, pause for a moment. Do something that takes your mind off of writing. Perhaps, read some articles to get inspiration for your post! Earlier this month, I discovered an app called Flipboard and it is fantastic for those moments.
Once you download Flipboard, you choose topics of your interest. A few of the topics I chose are marketing, fashion, finance, blogging and social media marketing. A good way to take advantage of the app is to pick topics within your niche so when you need inspiration or you are having a cup of coffee and want to stay on top of current trends, it is all in one app!
You can add an article to your magazine for easy access later on. This has been a game changer for me because you have articles tailored to your interests.
Feeling stuck sucks but it is all in how you combat it that matters. Just because you can't think of ideas right now doesn't mean that later today you won't. Relax, breathe and let the creativity flow. Don't rush it.
If you have any apps or suggestions that have helped you, feel free to leave them below since they may help someone else!
