There will always be a time during your blogging journey when you just don’t know what to write about.
Whether it’s writer’s block rearing its ugly head, or you’re simply out of ideas, it can be hard to get out of that funk.
Instead of pushing through with the same old blog post, utilise a bit of creative thinking to turn the ordinary on its head.
Everybody loves a list. They’re easy to scan, have digestible information and they’re super popular for social media sharing.
You can create lists on almost any subject. It could be your favourite books or a list of your top bloggers to follow.
Tutorials and how-to guides are a great way to engage your audience and educate them in a single blog post. Plus, they’re easy to work on too since you’re already familiar with the topic.
The key thing to remember when writing how-to guides is to break things down into small actionable steps. This makes it easier for readers to follow your instructions. Including step-by-step screenshots further aids in this, especially for visual learners.
Marketing bloggers could write tutorials on how to use different social media platforms. Beauty bloggers can guide their readers through makeup applications. It all depends on your target audience and what they want to read.
If writing full guides on a subject seems too daunting for you, you can always create a video tutorial instead. Video is hugely popular – sometimes more popular than the written word, so utilising it in your blog makes a lot of sense.
