No Idea What to write! Yes, there are times when a blogger has no idea what to write next. It’s natural to every blogger, it happens. We are humans, and we don’t have something to write all the time But a post for the blog is as necessary as food is for our body. So there is no way out; You have to think for blog post 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 get ideas 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. It will refresh and rejuvenate you, and you will forget that some time ago you were out of ideas. Now Forget about everything and try to 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 did not know before and which might help you 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 and Search engine optimization tips and techniques.
Don’t just look at the topics in magazines, try to read them thoroughly. It will help you get lots of ideas to write not a single post but multiple posts.
It’s my personal experience when I had just started blogging then I managed to read PC magazine, computer active Digit, and many other books. 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 a hell lot of ideas to write your next blog post. Millions of people keep 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 and shared some social site and who know while surfing on that particular social site, you encounter with that quote and when you read that, an Idea just comes up in your mind and you are ready to write something new?

I always try to read my favorite blogs in my free time and there are times when I get 2-3 post ideas by reading just one post. So if you try to read few excellent blogs, then ideas come to you naturally.
I suggest you to make a habit to read 2-3 blog post daily on different blogs. It will improve your knowledge, and there will be fewer chances of “run out of idea” situation.
Read Old Posts Of Your Own Blog
This one is just one of the best ways to generate more blog post ideas. Just think when You were a newbie and started so many things about technology, blogging etc. After years of experience when you go to those posts, you might feel that you can write them in a much better way now.
