Every so often, I get contacted by someone who says that they’ve burnt out and can’t figure out what topics to talk about anymore. Some people call it writer’s block, others call it laziness. I’m not sure what I call it, because I don’t believe in writer’s block, and at some point you have to snap out of your laziness. I guess, maybe people just have a hard time thinking outside the box.
The problem, is that there is nothing new under the sun, and just about every topic has been spoken about at some point or another. And, with all the competition out there today, you really have to set yourself apart from the rest. So, how do you do this? I actually stumbled on an excellent post that talks about this topic, and how to stand out. Really, it can also help if you have hit a wall with your blog.
The author of the post that I’m referring to, is an expert in her field with multiple published books under her belt. In addition, she is a journalist and the main writer for her blog: How to Writer Better. I don’t know much, but I do know that if you listen to the advice on her blog, you will be able to writer better. Check out the post she wrote about coming up with new ideas, and then let me know what you think here in a comment.
Remember, that the key to being a successful business blogger is to stand out from the competition. If you take the advice she gives in this post, your blog has no choice but to go above and beyond your competition. Bookmark it, and refer to it often. Happy reading!
