Have you ever stared at your laptop for an hour without writing a word?
Then I realized that maybe there is a solution to this.
Within a few minutes, I figured it out.
Then I thought: If I face this problem, the chances are, others are facing as well.
So, I decided to share the solution with you.
Listen up: Please don’t consider this an expert advice. I’m just a student of blogging who has been learning it since 2008. It may not be the best advice or solution. So, you can ignore this blog post if you want to.
Let’s get to the cream of this.
I have been facing this problem of choosing the blog post topic — in fact, I try to pick the blog post topics to write — but the problem was something else.
What I do is that I create a file of blog post titles. I often add suitable blog post titles to the list.
Maybe, a lot of you do this as well.
The question is that if I create my blog post titles that I believe are perfect for my blog then why I struggle at times when I sit down to write.
Finally, I found the answer.
Here it is:
Ignore what you should write and choose what you want to write
Explanation: What You Should Write versus Choose What You Want to Write
The whole problem lies in the tug of war of what you should write and choose what you want to write.
When we have a blog post to write according to our schedule. We sit down to write, and nothing happens.
The reason is that we aren’t meant to write on that topic at that time.
Instead, if you choose what you want to write at that time, you might end up writing a useful and helpful blog post for your audience.
I can tell you from my personal experience that if I choose a blog post topic because I want to write about it, I get excited to finish it up and save it to publish later on. I have seen that when I choose what I want to write, I don’t go off the hook while writing and examples get showered along the way. Eventually, I end up writing a comprehensive blog post.
Let’s wrap up
The purpose of this blog post is to tell you that the blog post topic must be enticing.
Go through your already chosen topics or ask yourself what you want to write in this moment of time.
Whatever stimulates you while you’re sitting on the desk or driving back home, choose that blog post topic to write on.
Let’s not shatter the moment of the joy!
Whenever you want to write a blog post; don’t pick up another one just because that comes first.
I skipped past two blog posts and created this blog post title because I wanted to talk about this topic.
What would you do while writing the next blog post?
