As if running a business around a family isn’t time consuming enough, you now have the added hassle of finding time to write your blog. Sometimes the inspiration and the material comes easily – but we’ve all had times when the ideas simply don’t flow and the days without posting turn into weeks and then months. So here are 7 simple ways to find ideas to write about, to keep your blog fresh and up to date and to banish bloggers block for good!
1. What’s in the news?
Is there something topical in the news that you can tie in with an aspect of your business or your industry? Maybe it’s a piece of new legislation or a new piece of research which has been published. Maybe a celebrity has said something which could be linked to your product or service. Or is there a big national event about to take place (i.e. election, Olympics, state occasion, competition etc) that you could use as a news hook. You should be keeping up to date with news in your sector anyway, but make sure you keep a broader ear out for any nuggets of news you could use as inspiration.
