No Idea What to write! Yes, there are times when a blogger has no idea what to write next. This is natural to every blogger, it just happens. We are humans and we don’t have something to write each and every time But a post for blog is as necessary as food is for our body. So there is no way out, You have to think of ideas to write your next blog post. Sometimes you start thinking and quickly get an awesome idea to write something But there are situations when you fail to think anything after brainstorming on 100’s things at the same time.
So what to do when you are blank and out of ideas?
Believe me when you are completely out of ideas then you can not concentrate on one topic and you just keep on brainstorming on so many topics and ideas simultaneously which comes to a failure at the end. So I suggest whenever you are in such situation then just turn off the pc or your laptop and go for a walk with friends. This will refresh you and you will forget that you sometimes ago you were out of ideas. Now Forget about everything and Do these:-
You might be wondering that why I am suggesting you to read a Magazine? Very simple, The magazine would not be having the same topics you are looking for but there you might uncover things that you were not knowing before and that will help you to get ideas. Don’t read magazines that are completely out of your niche. Suppose I have a tech blog then I will prefer to read tech magazines, computer security magazines etc. If I blog about SEO then I must want to read magazines which contains information about search engines etc.
Don’t just look on the topics in magazines, try to read them thoroughly. It will help you get lots of ideas to write not a single post even so many post ideas.
Its my personal experience, When I had just started blogging then I managed to read pc magazine books, computer active and many more. They are full of ideas. But as I get very less time to read books I prefer to read Google news (search engine, technology sections). It gives so many ideas to write my next post.
Social Media is another great resource to give you hell lot of ideas to write your next blog post. millions of people keeps on sharing their ideas, images and many more thing. If you try to notice them then you might be getting ideas from them. Suppose someone wrote a quote which has something different and Who knows when You will read that, an Idea just come up in your mind and you are ready to write something.

This is one of the most used methods by all the new and experience bloggers because it’s the most effective way. There are nothing much to do here. Just try to read the blogs of same niche and you will get an idea to write something quickly. I always try to read my favorite blogs in my free time and there are times when I get 2-3 post ideas from reading just one post. So if you try to read few nice blogs then ideas comes to you naturally.
Even I want to suggest to all the my fellow bloggers to make an habit to read 2-3 blog post daily on different blogs, This will improve your knowledge and there will be less chances of “out of idea” situation.
Read Old Posts Of Your Own Blog
This one is just one of the best idea to generate more blog post ideas. Just think When You were newbie and started so many things about technology , blogging etc and after years of experience when you go to those posts then you might feel that you can write this post in much better way now. So its good to read your old posts and if you find there is any thing missing or you can add more depth in that post then just try to write about the same thing with much more details. In this way you are getting an idea to write a next blog post as well as you are giving your readers a well researched post about which you wrote ago. This also leads to reader’ trust on you.
