      Thanks Wayne:) Yes I find it a lot easier to write about what I love and am passionate about. I also find that if I’m in a flow of writing I’ll write in bulk, so will write several blogs in one go and then post them up on different days.

    Thanks Lilach
    I think I’ll pin article this up on the wall. Every point you make has triggered off masses of ideas. I may even go from one blog a week to one more often than that which will a scary challenge for 2012!
    Looking forward to reading more from you in 2012
    All the best

      Thanks Charlotte, appreciate your comment:) Pleased you’ve found it useful – I’m now writing every day a blog – something I never thought I’d be able to achieve. It does get easier:)

    As always, an interesting and useful post, Lilach! As someone quite new to writing my own blog (as opposed to writing to others’ specifications), I regularly lack inspiration, even in such a fast-paced and fascinating world like Social Media! I will bookmark this post and refer back each time I get stuck now, thanks! :)

    Thanks for the inspiration Lilach! You’re right, sometimes staring at a blank Word Doc leads to a blank mind. Ugh!

  6. Really useful post Lilach. I shall be bloggin more often now!
    I’m writing ideas on post-it-notes and keeping them in a box. Then when I’m stuck for an idea, I can delve.

      Thanks Jacqui:) If that system works for you then that’s great. I like the idea of keeping them in a box, there’s nothing worse than writing ideas down and then not being able to find them lol

    Hi Lilach,

    Those are all very effective ideas for coming up with blog post ideas! Recently someone emailed me with a question on blogging. After I responded to the email I thought that more people are probably struggling with this so I decided to take my reply and expand it into a blog post!

    Happy holidays!

      Stacy I must admit this is where I get a ton of my ideas from. In fact I actually email my subscribers asking them how I can help them and what they would like me to write about.

  8. Lilach,

    These are great tips! Inspiration is everywhere, as you pointed out.

    I think your idea about keeping a pen and notepaper with you at all times is truly important. How many times inspiration has hit for me, and when I didn’t write it down, later as I sat at my computer, my mind has gone totally blank. (That’s why I sometimes purchase pre-written articles and put my own spin on them! ;)) I’m getting a notebook right now and putting it in my purse to bring with me to work…Funny how my mind is most actively engaged in my home based business while I’m at work! lol!

    Hey, I just opted into your list, btw! Can’t wait to learn more from you!

    Your friend,
    Juli

      Thanks Juli:)

      Yes I too carry a notepad and pen around with me. I’m also getting into the habit of now having a Google document that I write in my ideas too so that it’s all in one place and I can elaborate more on.

      I have a memory like a sieve so I have to be super organised. It’s funny when I was writing this as one of the places where I really come up with some great ideas is when I’m swimming! (I guess I go into trance mode lol) but I can never write them down then!

      Great to see you as a subscriber too:)

      Happy Holidays:)

  9. Hi Lilach,

    There’s an enscription on Charles Bukowski’s gravestone, that reads: ‘don’ try.’ Advice he gave to young aspiring writers in an interview. Now this may not be for everybody. If you look at other major writers through history they kept strict regimes. I guess it comes down to ‘what works for you,’ I know that sounds cliche, but I find lately that a revelation of myself is the sharpest tool I can use. Studying my habits and letting my habits study me. I think a diary is a great idea, as I dnt think ideas have much regard the boxes we put them in. I’m going to be bold here and say, that Stephen King ( and yes, I know were talking bloggin here, but the guy knows a thing or two about writing, lets give it to him), said that he dsnt have time for people who wan’t to write but say they have got no time to read. I think reading, especially novels, is a great way to expand yourself. I also find that picking up something from an artist you find inspirinf ( you know, that kinda stuff you never tire of) is always a boost and reminds you of why you write. Lastly, and this is going to sound cheeky: rest more than you write, I wld say. The mind is the most valuable tool.

    Merry Christmas,
    Ivin.

      Thanks Ivin, appreciate your comment:)

      I have to agree to some extent about the reading aspect. I read every day, books, magazines, the internet. I want to know what people are talking about, thinking about, worrying about, happy about etc. This helps me write. After all as much as I want to write for myself I always put my readers needs/wants before mine when writing.

      I think if you love reading you will definitely find it easier to write, but I could be biased.

      Happy Holidays:)

    Re item #10: putting a program like Evernote on your phone is very helpful. You can type in notes or make audio recordings which can be put into a blogging folder. Evernote’s phone app syncs to a desktop app, thus your ideas will be on your computer when you get back to the office.

    I get a lot of ideas while riding my road bike, and Evernote has been quite useful for recording them.

    • Lilach says:

      Thanks Dave:) I’ve recently heard a few other people raving about Evernote so I think it’s time to check it out. I like the idea of being able to record audio whilst you’re on your bike, although in my case it would be whilst I’m driving:)
      Twitter:

  12. Thanks for the list, Lilach! It is now favorited. Thought I would share what I am doing on item #10. I have a wall poster with future blog posts and crossed out (used) posts. It has saved me multiple times when I am needing to post — but do not have an idea handy.

    I am anxious to try your instant results idea in the very near future. In fact, I have place it between stars in column #2 on my poster.
    Twitter:

    • Lilach says:

      Thanks David:) A wall poster is a great way to help you and I agree it can really help you save time.

      I’m very much a visual person so I love images, bullet points etc. and find that really helps me too.

      Looking forward to hearing how the other ideas help you too:)

  13. Ross says:

    I really like the idea you suggested of using google instant to find popular topics, i hadn’t thought of that!

  14. Dean Rose says:

    Another great blog Lilach! I enjoy reading your posts. You always seem to post just what I am looking for!

    Thanks,
    Dean

  15. I like #2 the best. I think it is so important that we learn from each others’ experiences! It is definitely in the mundane tasks we all do to run our businesses that the best learnings occur.

  16. Thanks for the ideas Lilach, generating content to blog about is a big complaint from people that I know, and it is often there excuse for not doing it consistently. This post will definitely help with that.

      Thanks Duke:) Yes it can be really challenging for people to write content and is one of the main things that holds people back from writing. But there are no excuses now:)

  17. I spend a lot of time interacting with those in my line of work, which is also what I blog about. So, I am able to see what types of questions others have. If I question comes up a couple of times, it tells me that it might be worthwhile to create a post about it. I also try to think back to the types of questions I had when I began 8 years ago. I spent a lot of time researching, reading and learning the ropes of this trade, so I think having it all in one place will help new freelance writers.
    Sloane Rossi recently posted..Struggling with Writer’s Block? 4 Tips to Help You Through ItMy Profile

    • Lilach says:

      Thanks Sloane, that’s a great tip. I think we often forget what its like to be a newbie and when we put ourselves in their position what would they want to know? What were we asking? The same questions are often popular too and I find continually come up.
      Twitter:

  18. Ideas are everywhere, like you say. There’s a great up-and-coming website called pinterest which is an online “pinboard” of sorts. The pictures on there are usually enough to inspire anyone. Listening to your favourite music is another good inspiration. The news, of course. I found the Julia and Julia movie intriguing; creating a new menu every day of the year from a book. It would be interesting if a student did that; 100+ days of beans on toasts, 100+ of Pot Noodles, etc.

    However, I can suggest not, for health reasons, following Ernest Hemmingway’s technique of drinking a large amount of gin before beginning a writing session!

    • Lilach says:

      Thanks Alex:) I’ll check out pinterest – looks like a very useful website thanks for the share:)

      It’s interesting how people get their inspiration. I never write anything online when I’ve had a drink, would be far too dangerous!!

    Hey Lilach,

    I am such a terrible blogger when it comes to ideas! I don’t blog until and unless I come up with a idea and that takes a long long time! I once blogged about having a writers block and that was wonderful. Because readers came across and told me what they would love to hear and gave me loads of ideas! That gave me blogging ideas for months! Cheeky! :)

    • Lilach says:

      Thanks Hajra:) There’s nothing wrong in being cheeky and using ideas that people give you – in fact that’s why I love it when people like yourself take the time to comment on my blog – not only is it great to get to know my readers a little better but also I can write for them and give them what they want to hear about.

  20. Pingback: How often should you write a blog post?

  21. While I don’t often suffer from writer’s block. When I do it’s usually because I’ve been writing for six months straight without taking a solid day off from writing. Take a break!

    I attribute my lack of writer’s block to writing every day. When I take a day off from writing it’s usually after I’ve already written an article or two like an addict who can’t stop getting his writing fix. lol.

    I find that I often suffer more from having too many ideas!

    Thank you Lilach for sharing those IMPORTANT tips!
    #4 #10 #12 – my favorite. I think that almost every topic can be a good topic for a blog post. Even if that’s “yesterday news” – we can create something new using some old news.
