10 Things to do When You Don't Know What to Blog About

HELLO EVERYONE I have arrived right on schedule (hey don't you raise your eyebrows at me) to deliver advice to you on what to do when you don't know what to blog about. You're welcome. And no I am not writing this post at myself because why on earth would I do something like that? I've got everything down, obviously. Ahem.


1.  Scream



Image result for screaming gif

Because this is obviously the logical solution. Everyone knows that screaming ALWAYS HELPS MATTERS. Don't question. 


2. Run from your blog 


Aka, shut your computer and put it as far away from you as possible. Then fly to Fiji because that will make it even further from you. 


3. Throw something 


Bonus points if this object is thrown at your blog. However it's probably wise not to maul your blog permanently because you might want it back at some point. Plus, you don't want it to turn against you. 


4. Stall 


Just insert random posts [sort of like this one]. No one will ever know that you're suffering from blogger's block. Of course not. 


5. Pretend like you know what you're doing




Actually this is me 100% of the time to be honest. Whoops. Sorry. (and yes I know I've used that gif before but it is just so perfect so I'm using it again) 

6. Pretend like your blog doesn't exist and stalk other blogs to get ideas. 





BUT DO NOT STEAL IDEAS. That is very rude and entirely unacceptable in the blogiverse. Just look around and maybe you'll get inspired or something. 


7. Cry 


It's sort of like screaming only more dramatic (I think), more exhausting, and even less helpful. Because I'm just full of good advice today, right? XP


8. Blame it on NaNo 


[actually to be honest if I did have blogger's block that's what I do so this is 100% valid] 


9. Unleash a Star Wars gif, they'll never fail you 




Okay but make sure you don't use Kylo Ren because he might fail you. BB8 is good though. Also Han Solo. 

10. Ask your minions for suggestions 


No I'm not asking for suggestions because I obviously know exactly what my next post will be about. Ahem. 



SO YES IT'S BEEN A WHILE BETWEEN POSTS. I shall leave the reason for that up to you to induce. xP Anyone ever had blogger's block before? How does it feel? (because never having had it I'm curious. Obviously.)

  1. I actually have a problem with too many post ideas (but, actually writing them is a totally different story...). I attempt to stick to a schedule, yet almost always fail, because apparently every post idea in the world cares to demand my full attention. :P

    1. OLIVIA WAHT. TEACH ME YOUR WAYS. xP (okay but trruuuee good point) I've thought about starting a schedule but I'm pretty sure I would fail also sooo I just decided not to go there. :P

  2. THAT BB8 GIF IS THE BEST GIF I'VE EVER SEEN

    You've seriously never had blogger's block? Basically from my experience your mind just goes blank everytime you try to write a new post and you go screaming to your friends WHAT DO I POST ABOUT and end up typing up some pointless rambly post or ignore your blog for three straight weeks. XD

    1. IKR I LOVE IT SO MUCH

      Ehrm well. Ahem. XD I miiiight have layered on the sarcasm a bit too thick but shhhh don't tell. :P I SHOULD TRY SCREAMING TO MY FRIENDS THOUGH THAT MIGHT WORK XD

      Ooh okay well that sounds like a very good not-suggestion. I TOTALLY WANT TO DO A BLOG AWARDS POST OMW xP

  4. I recently had Bloggers Block (science has proven that it's a thing. Science, Jonathan. We must listen to science), and I literally googled Christmas Blog Post Ideas. Oh how the mighty have fallen. But I ended up getting really inspired, so if all else fails...google is your friend. ;)

    1. (BUT I DON'T LIKE SCIENCE D: D: D: especially not when it relates to blogger's block like nope eek *runs for cover XD) Wow Laura TSK I'm disappointed in you. *shakes head ruefully* :P MAYBE I COULD TRY THAT THOUGH [if I ever get blogger's block, of course. ahem]

  5. I found out another thing to do is, "Post that politically incorrect post you've been afraid to put up." Those also seem to get a lot of traffic since they stir up controversy.
    A few other tricks are doing one of those linkup things, where someone tags you, or doing book reviews.

    1. Well that's brilliant actually lol. xP I don't honestly write many things that are politically incorrect though. ;P
      OMW TRUE. I'm behind in like 4 of those what am I doing I should go work on one. xP And yeesss I'm totally going to do a book review soon. *nods*

      Delete
    2. It doesn't have to be /that/ politically incorrect. My popular post was about how I think the real lack of diversity in books is a lack of moral diversity, not racial.

      Delete
    3. Hmm okay well then maybe I should try this... :P *runs off to try and think of controversial topics* XD

  6. HAHAHA nice post. Can't say I have had bloggers block. But I'm still rather new to all this blogging stuff. If you ever see me just disappear know that I followed your #2 point and I'm chilling with the Avenger Cast in Fiji :P

    Replies
    1. WELL THANKS. :D Hehe well you'll get it. At some point. And when you do, I will keep that in mind and let the the blogging community know in your absence. *sage nod* :P [actually let's be real I probably WOULDN'T. Instead I would just disappear with you heh XP]

      Delete
    2. HAhaha I'll refer back to this post when it hits me!
      I can see the headlines "Two guy bloggers disappear, one found later chilling in Fiji the other... At large"

      Delete
    3. *sage nod* I'm sure it will be very helpful. :P
      HAHAHA ACCURATE THOUGH XD

    1. *pats* it's ok next time you and I should brainstorm together lol XD

      *SCREAMS HYSTERICALLY* OMW I DID. OKAY but I think it's because slapping your blogger's block would be like slapping yourself. And who wants to slap himself? So there. xD THEY ARE NOT ALL OLD GIFS ONLY LIKE 1 OF THEM OKAY. Plus the BB8 one is goals so xP


      I should do the same...

  10. THIS POST IS SO TIMELY.

    Seriously. I was procrastinating my blog post because I had no idea what to write and I checked my email this was on top. TEACH ME YOUR STALKING WAYS. Actually don't. XP

    It was still really weird. Anyway. *bookmarks post*

    Another thing you could do is ramble extensively about the last book you read. (Totally not what I'm doing...)

    1. WELL HUZZAH THEN :D

      Haha well yes of course I did that on purpose, obviously. I can read minds. Ahem. :P BUT GLAD IT HELPED (?) YOU. XD

      Hehehe I could try that but I've been reading the same book for like... a few weeks. Sigh. XD

      Delete
    2. *grins* It did help, actually. And I did book mark it. So there's that.

      Ah... that could be a problem. XD What book?

    3. WELL HUZZAH THEN this proves I am actually helpful on my good days :P

  11. Nooo, don't go to Fiji, if you're going to travel why not come to Australia??? So much better here. *nods*

    Since I usually have a serial blog story happening, I manage to avoid Blogging block most of the time. Except for when said story ends. And then I suddenly freeze up and AGH, HELP, WAHT DO I DO NOW??? But I can usually think of something to ramble about for a few hours. :P

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. OH TRUUUUEE. Okay well in that case *books flight to Australia* XD

      Ah see that's 100% brilliant. I started a serial story once but never posted it or finished it sooo xP

  12. AAAHAHA. I am dying of laughter- I need to throw something at my blog because recently I have had SO MANY TROUBLES thinking of post ideas.

  13. ORRRR be like me and just disappear for a thousand years. Always works magic.
    This is such a perfect post, basically sums up the blogger life exactly.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. TRUTH. I didn't think of that but I can see how that is 100% scientifically proven magical. Because in order to disappear for a thousand years, you have to live for a thousand years, which is magical obviously.

  14. Whaaaat? Me have blogger's block??? NEVER!! *cough* Why would even suggest such a thing??

    Ahem.

    It helps having a random blog like mine, because then I don't have to stick to any one subject. I could literally only post a few totally random pictures and NO ONE WOULD BE SURPRISED. (And don't even get on my case about all the 'ly' words I'm using... ;P) But yes, I have had a few times when I post...and then like a million years go by and I'm like "Whoops, I kinda forgot I had a blog...YES, I'M STILL ALIVE!"
    Anyways. Thanks for this post. Very funny as well as informative.

      TRUE THIS IS A VERIFIABLE FACT. And haha yes you're right, I wouldn't be surprised in the least lol. :P (*makes zipping motion over lips* kay will do) SAME. Sometimes I have good excuses though. Not very often, but on occasion. xP

  15. Ahw, dude. *pats* My advice would be - you've just fought your way through the trecherous battle field of nano. You've got to have learned /something/ right? Write about where you are right now. Things you're discovering, things you're learning. That's what makes each blog unique. Becuase different people go through different things at different times, and that gives you valuable blog juice that no one else has anything like. If you discovered a certain character really fleshed out when you wrote the first draft, maybe do a post on character development strategy. Or if you found writing fast didn't work for you, write a post on writing slow vs. writing fast. Or maybe you're struggling with how to create writing time. Start writing a post about how you find time, and maybe you'll give yourself some ideas. These are completely random examples, but you get the point. ;)

    I've had blogger's block many times. THE IDEAS JUST DO NOT COME! so frustrating ...

    Great post though! I love the gifs. Although I must confess, I did a blog post about Star Wars full of gifs and I put one up of Kylo Ren. I AM A FAILURE! XD

    1. TRUE I DID. I also missed slapping it which slapping is basically my solution for everything. I DO NOT KNOW HOW THIS HAPPENED. xP

      IKR. It's like you want to post but at the same time you don't really know what to post about... XD

      Well thanks! :D AMBER WHAT YOU DID? Okay well yes you are a failure then tsk. Shame on you. xP (jk jk actually tbh I had a Kylo Ren gif on my own blog once sooooo)

  18. Then, you got the problem where you have a plethora of ideas and no motivation to write. I am just gonna blame it on NaNo. Nothing like trying to write 50k in a month to suck the joy out of everything XD

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. TRUE. I have had that also and it is not a good feeling. xP Yeah good idea I think you can blame just about anything on NaNo and everyone will accept it. *nods* Like 'oh my hamster just died and it's all NaNo's fault.' NO ONE WILL QUESTION XP
