Getting a Leg Up on Writer's Block

Ever have one of those days where you sit down to blog and have nothing to say? Or how about a day where you can think of a hundred things to blog about, but you just do not have the time to do it?

Well, here's a little tip you can use to make turn that problem into a tool!

As you're surfing around the internet, keep a window open that is logged into your blogger dashboard. Then, any time you see something that makes you think "Oh! How wonderful!" or "Wow! I should write about that!", just click over to that open blogger window and hit "New Post".

Type something in the title line that will remind you of the idea you just had. Then, if it's another artisan, web page, or blog that sparked the idea, go ahead and copy & paste a link to that page in the body of the new post. Finally, simply hit "Save Now" at the bottom of the post window.

By doing this, you're creating a list of topics without actually publishing anything. So, when you sit down on your scheduled blogging day, you already have a ton of topics to talk about. Voila! No more writer's block!

Thanks! And, yes, there is a follow option... you can find it on the right of the page, just below the RSS feed box... It's called "Ninjas in Training"
