Finding things to write Blog posts about can be really difficult, especially if you try too hard 😊
If you are not writing about your passion then you can find it difficult to find something to write about which is why you should always write from your heart, and only write about what you are passionate about, otherwise you will struggle.
But, you say, I want to write about this topic but its not my passion, so, brings me back to why, well I want to write about it because I feel strongly about it, well there is your passion right there 😊
Where do I start you say, I know what I want to say but don’t have the right words to express it.
Many moons ago, when I used to have to sit exams that required essay writing and I mean 3000 word essays in a 1.5 hour block, I had a senior lecturer that said, if you really believe in what you are writing about but cannot find the words, just start writing, write about mowing the lawn, running the bath, cleaning windows, just start writing because as soon as you do the right words will start to flow on the subject matter that you want to write about.
It’s a bit like that blank canvas I have mentioned. While its blank it can create fear, it can create a block that is hard to overcome.
So, just start writing, start the stream of consciousness and turn it into a full-blown river. Whatever you write will be from the heart and will be from your passion.
Even if it is about washing the windows, just to get you started, that bit you write about the windows, will be coming from a place that is what you believe in. It will be passionate and may be a blog post in itself. (Many people need to know a great sure fire way of keeping windows clean )
I guess what I am saying is just write, and write some more, you will come up with a whole plethora of ideas and these ideas are gems you can expand on at any time. It like journaling, write down ideas and then come back to them, expand on them and, Voila, you suddenly have months of blog posts coming out of you like a great curry on a hot day.
Be generous in your sharing, you will find a niche of interested people and eventually you will wonder how you ever went not writing
Pull out the feather quill and don’t let those ink blots become blocks.
Having said that, a good Psychologist will always tease a good story out of you with Ink Blots 😊
