Coming up for intelligent, content-rich, unique posts is a lot more challenging than I imagined it would be when I made the leap into blogging. Sometimes it is a real stretch to come up with a post idea. Fleshing out those forced ideas into a well-written post can be incredibly painful.
Recently, I made a discovery. When suffering from writer's block I usually switch in to reader mode- flipping through other people's blogs, posting dozens of well-thought-out comments. This is a great distraction, but typically doesn't help the issue.
So, instead, here is what you do. Get off the computer. Go wash your face, or shine your sink. Paint your nails or take a shower. The ideas may just start flowing. Its worked for me!
PS- Be prepared in case it works extra well and you have multiple ideas. While you run back to the computer and begin a post on the first idea, the others will fly away.
