Once check out the definition for Writer’s block by Wikipedia
Writer’s block is a condition, primarily associated with writing as a profession, in which an author loses the ability to produce new work.
Hell, I don’t know who writes for Wikipedia. Their definitions for any word will be strange and they will confuse you even more!
Here’s my definition for writer’s block(if you didn’t understand Wikipedia’s definition)
Writer’s block = Lack of inspiration to write(it’s that simple!)
You are really lucky if you haven’t encountered writer’s block yet. Everyone(even professional writers) get stuck sometimes while writing.
Okay let’s dive into the topic.
To earn money from blogging what we exactly need?
We must have traffic(be it targeted, organic or direct traffic). If you want to drive traffic, you should have quality content.
Here comes the question, how much quality content do you need?
Difficult question to answer right?
Well you need to create the content until you build the thriving audience for your blog.
Surely you can’t build a better blog overnight, can you? Content creation is not a difficult part, all you need is to get over few hurdles like coming out of writer’s block, finding new topic ideas etc.
Here are the 3 powerful ways to come out of writer’s block easily. Ready?
Read your favorite writers content
This is the strategy I use whenever I stuck to write.
People will often fall in writer’s block because of one major reason and that is: lack of inspiration.
If you have enough inspiration to write, no matter how worse your surroundings are, you will definitely write something.
I generally read my favorite bloggers articles whenever I need some inspiration to write. And reading your favorite blog posts is by far the best way to beat writers block.
My favorite writers are:

Write your posts at once
This is the new strategy which I’m following these days. I have scheduled my blogging like this..
- Monday & Tuesday – Brainstorming the topics & writing posts
- Wednesday & Thursday – Blog promotion like blog commenting, responding to emails etc
- Friday – Reading & researching other blogs(I analyse the popular posts especially)
- Saturday & Sunday – Break(I usually work 5 days/week)
This way I usually create the content and develop my blog. And I’m also lucky that I’m not posting daily, I stick to MWF(Monday, Wednesday and Friday) basis here on my blog.
I don’t know what is your posting frequency, some people may post daily or some may post regularly(not daily) like me.
The best suggestion I can give to those who post daily is, use 750words.com(smart way to horn your writing skills). And develop a habit of writing daily so that you can never fall in writer’s block.
If you still find it difficult then simply change your posting frequency(reduce your posting from daily to 3 or 4 times a week). Remember, you don’t need to post daily to build audience. No one cares if you have crappy content.
Moreover if you spend your time to write weekly posts at once, then you can churn out the content easily.
Create a ‘backup’ folder
I call it as backup folder instead of ideas folder
List down your content ideas in a folder. Write what ever comes into your mind. You can craft and develop the content later.
Whenever you don’t get any content creation ideas, just go through the folder and finish the unedited topics. It’s as simple as that!
It’s always a good idea to write down your ideas in a specific place be it notepad, wordpad or in a notebook.
This way you can never forget what you wanted to write.
