Blogger’s Block – What to do about it.

“Blogger’s Block” is the new “Writer’s Block.” You know that feeling…you sit down to write a blog post, and just stare at the paper – except, now it’s the screen. You wait for the virtual muse to visit, only to be stood up, again. Don’t worry. You’re not alone. Other bloggers have had that same problem, and have written about what has helped them overcome it. Here are a few ideas:

Manaj Jasra begins a series on Blogger’s Block with these suggestions for places to look for inspritation – hot industry stories, relationships with PR firms, Google hot trends, correlating common interests, and guest bloggers. (Read more, here.)

ProBlogger also has some great ideas – change your environment, keep an idea journal, collaborate with other bloggers, and much more, here.

If that doesn’t do it, here is an entire collection, on the Creativity Portal, of online writing prompts and idea generators (hat-tip Blogger Buzz) sure to break you out of that rut.

Good luck. Now, go blog something!
