I used to dread blogging. I would always put it off until I absolutely had to do it. But with a new system and list of ideas, I have found that blogging has become much easier, and more enjoyable. And as with anything, the more you do it, the easier it becomes. If you struggle with writing blog posts for your business or blog, there are many different things you can do to help you get the creative juices flowing and the words on the screen.
Find your niche
First, you need to be sure you are writing about what you know and what you are passionate about. If you aren't interested in writing it, it will translate into a boring post and your readers won't want to read it. It is also important to write for your readers. Figure out what your readers want to read and work on creating quality content for that niche. Writing about everything under the sun isn't going to gain readership. But honing in on a couple of specialized topics will keep your readers coming back for more.
The more you write, the easier it will be. You will find your rhythm and it will come easier to you. It will also be easier to find your voice and your writing style and you will start to feel like you are just having a conversation with one of your readers. Writing more will help you to come up with new post ideas too. You will be surprised that while you are writing one post you will have 20 ideas for other topics to write about.
Read other blogs
Reading other blogs that inspire you will help to get your own creative juices flowing. Following along with other bloggers in your industry as well as similar creative fields will help you to know your writing style and niche even better. Just be careful not to follow too closely or your blog may end up being too similar to others. Stick to what you know and do it your way. Your readers will appreciate the authenticity.
