You know what I think hampers productivity?

Writer’s block.

When blogging, it’s commonplace to experience writer’s block. Whenever you feel that you’re head’s not getting creative enough and the clairvoyant space in it is now just filled with clutter and disarray, you’re going to need to take a short break until you get it to produce again. This is an otherwise, passive approach to the problem that is writer’s block and it’s something I don’t normally recommend to anyone.


Of course, you’ll want to constantly keep writing to keep your audience and the search engines happy. If you’ve got a stable following of people who hang on to your every word, you might publish a post or two daily. So how do you get out of that unproductive space and keep writing even though it feels like you’ve no new ideas? Take a look at these few things and you might get a few ideas:



You could also ask them directly by posting a question on your Facebook wall, tweeting or sending out survey emails. Remember, this is actually all about your target audience and their needs – meet them, and you won’t run out of fans.



An angle could be an opinion that neither sides with or against the blog post, or tips and best practices regarding the matter. You DON’T have to reword the entire blog post – that’s where the cheating begins.





Of course, if there’s absolutely nothing popping in your brain relevant to your topic anymore, then there’s probably something wrong with the niche you chose. Then again, that’s another story that will be discussed as soon as the next few blog posts. See? I’m on a roll already. 🙂
