Blogger's Block

Quite often, I'm afflicted with blogger's block. I cannot think of any new ideas or inspirations for a new post. Days drag on without me having a new post. Today while idly googling the term blogger's block, I came across this interesting site: http://www.problogger.net/battling-bloggers-block/ wherein the author has suggested quite a lot of ideas to combat the block. I hope to benefit from it and come back with fresh posts soon.

Great Tips...

I too face this block many a time. Hopefully, my once a week post will keep coming but believe me, it is a great effort.

The funny thing is the actual post is the result of an intense 45 minutes of inspiration. Till that point all ideas are in a jumble and I cannot figure out what to write.

Simplest way of getting blogging ideas is to focus on a specific theme for a while - say Shiva temples in Madras, or recently released catchy music in Tamil, or whatever. More focused the subject, more readily you will get the ideas.

When I began blogging, "Arthur Clarke Fansite" appeared narrow enough. There never was a problem choosing next subject - since there were always more stories (I still haven't finished it nearly 1.5 years since I began!) My block seems to be laziness. Setting time aside at a predictable fixed frequency to write something & post it can sometimes get on your nerves.

Nice find, Krishnan! I do face this problem and use some of these tips at times especially the first one. Do visit my blog for my latest post on English - A colourful language.
