Creating compelling content when you’re out of ideas.[Infographic]

So often I sit staring at a plain screen, wondering what I should write about in my latest post. It is always nice to try and create fresh, new content that has not been seen before. Unfortunately, that is a difficult thing to achieve. After all, everything has been written about, or drawn, or sung about or whatever. There is so much content available to all of us, all of the time that it can seem literally impossible to come up with something new. The good news is that you don’t need to come up with completely fresh content, giving your own take on other peoples work is just as useful and allows that work to reach a wider audience.
With that in mind, here is a great info-graphic created by Copyblogger based on work by their very own Danny Iny.

Daily story – Writting to find inspiration.

I have decided that over the next few weeks I am going to write a story. I don’t know yet what it will be about, if it will be based on fact or fiction, if it will take anything from my own life or not. All I know is that I am planning on writing one paragraph every day for a while, to see what comes together. It may be rubbish, it may be amazing; I have no real idea of how good my ability to write or tell a story is. I hope everyone of you that read this blog gets some level of enjoyment out of this project, even if it’s just to laugh at the poor attempt. Once this project has been started I hope you feel able to give your own suggestions on how you think the story is going, and any ideas you have on how it should proceed.

My plan is to write the first paragraph tomorrow, and then take it from there as to how the story unfolds. It may be that some days I write more, or some days I may have no inspiration, or my mental state might not be so great and so I don’t write anything. Whatever happens I hope you all enjoy the ride and find something in the coming story that you can relate to.
