Writer’s block is something that plagues us all from time to time, but as the old saying goes,” The show must go on!”  According to Wikipedia, the definition of writer’s block is, “a condition, primarily associated with writing as a profession, in which an author loses the ability to produce new work.”
As most of us know, the key to getting followers on your blog is writing good content.  But more important is relevancy and being genuine. There’s so much noise in the marketplace today and sometimes it’s a reader’s nightmare to even get online.  I think William Stafford, American poet, said it best, “There is no such thing as writer’s block for writers whose standards are low enough.”
Yes, people want to read good content, but they also want to get to know the author.  Blogging allows you to let people see another side of you that they won’t get from a 140 character tweet.
Here are a few tips to help you in case you ever have writer’s block…
1.)   Exercise.  Getting the blood flowing is a great way to stimulate your mind.  Go take a walk around a nearby park.  Being around nature has a great effect on us by allowing us to relax our thoughts.  This might just release your best blog yet!  If pumping iron is more your thing, then go to the gym and crush a great workout!  Focusing on lifting heavy weight might allow you to lift yourself out of the fog you were in previously.
2.)   Be prepared.  Carry around a small notebook and a pen that you can keep in your pocket.  You never know when a good idea is going to come to you and the last thing you want is for that to happen and not to have something to jot it down on.
3.)   Start in the middle.  If getting the introduction is the problem, then work around it.  You can always go back and write a beginning if you have the middle and end completed.
For those that needed a little help getting the gears turning, I hope this helped at least one of you!
