Writer’s block? Slow news day?
A few years ago, with no forethought other than your own narcissistic prosperity, you committed yourself to writing a blog with a very narrow focus. Ergo, you might be starting to run low on ideas. Rather than risk alienating your readership by broadening your horizons or reinventing yourself, you instead want to come up with a way to continually regurgitate the same old information in slightly different ways. I thought I’d help you out with that.
Turns out, even the least intelligent of you can easily craft a blog post out of absolutely nothing just by asking yourself a few simple questions:
- Did you eat anything?
- Did you run or do yoga?
- When was the last time you posted about your daily routine?
- Is there anything in your house you want to brag about under the guise of offering guidance?
- What are you loving right now?
- What arbitrary event or occasion can you blow out of proportion?
- What’s the weather like?
Also, here are some helpful add-ons to enhance any blog post:
- Feel free to reuse photos of yourself you’ve already posted, even if they’re irrelevant to the content. Somebody out there might not have seen them yet.
- Link back to three or four other posts you’ve written. Again, relevance is secondary. The goal is to put words up on the Internet.
- Feel free to make vague and sweeping generalizations to support your claim. Any comments that contradict you can always be deleted.
- Content lacking? Take pictures from several different angles. Post them all.
