Does that sound familiar? Maybe you don’t even get to the sit down part, because while you know a blog will help your SEO, connect to your clients, offer value, give you great content pillars for social media, blah, blah, blah, you’re gripped with anxiety over how to even get started.
I want you to tell yourself this (make sure you say it out loud!), “I have years of writing within me on at least a thousand topics, simply because I’ve lived life.” If you woke up yesterday and walked through your day working and living, you have a story to tell today.
Release your imagination. Everything you write on your business site blog doesn’t have to directly relate to what you do or sell. You can connect humor, relatability, and shared brand values through your blog. Every life experience you’ve had has created what you are what you do today. Your business has directly birthed from everything you are not just what you sell.
Here are 7 easy ways to get your blog writing juices flowing that will work for anyone across any industry. Grab your prettiest notebook and favorite pen (that’s step one to creative brainstorming) and let’s walk through how to use your story to light a lamp in your mind that doesn’t have a chance to burn out, because every new experience will give you more ideas to blog.
Every time you post something online, you have a choice. You can either make it something that adds happiness to the world or you can make it something that takes away. -Zoe Sugg, Vlogger
Go make sunshine. Don’t be afraid to take a stab at writing. Let your mind go, let go of perfection, and allow the pen to do its thing. Remember, you are interesting and people want to have their lives enriched by you.
