The Five Stages of Not Knowing What to Blog About Today
Don’t you just hate it when you’re trying to think of something to post, and there is just nothing popping into your head and you just really really want to post about something? In this post I will outline the five stages of the “I don’t know what to blog about today” phenomenon.
Stage one: Deep introspection and brainstorming
Somewhere in your mind there has to be something, some little nugget of blogging awesomeness you can talk about, right? Right?
Stage two: Searching other blogs incessantly
Well, if your brain isn’t going to come up with something, let’s look for inspiration elsewhere. Someone is bound to have a nice discussion question you can answer. Where are all those inspirational posts hiding when you need them?
Stage three: Desperation
At this stage, it seems as if this is your first day in the blogosphere, and you don’t know the Publish button from RSS. Whyyyy is this so hard?!
Stage four: Looking for suggestions
Parents, spouses, friends, no one is safe. “What should I blog about today?” you ask them over and over again. Even Twitter followers aren’t being helpful.
