How To Write & Create Amazing Blog Posts Effortlessly

Amazing blog ideas have no particular trick, catch or secret to them. Sometimes a blog idea comes bubbling up out of nowhere but this usually happens at the most inconvenient of times; while eating, showering, driving or otherwise indisposed. Why? Because creativity comes from the right side of the brain, so while the left side of your brain is distracted trying to get a particular repetitive or automatic task done, your right brain comes out to play.

As strange as it sounds you can’t “think” creativity into existence, you have to “allow” creativity by triggering it by some other means like relaxation, distraction or perhaps rummaging through some websites or old notes. By not “thinking” that this is a “problem” to solve, your brain will move you from puzzle solving mode (left thinking) to a more creative state of being.

Now that your brain is ready you just have to have the courage to be a little more honest than usual and use a little more tact. Business owners run into, solve, hurdle, complicate, and fix complex and interesting problems every day. There is literally no end to the blogs you can write if you start pulling from experience.

For example, my speaking engagement last week, I was standing in the crowd watching the next speaker and it came time for Q & A. The first person that raised his hand seemed like he wanted to debate more than he wanted to absorb information as he went on and on and on plugging his business with no sign of a question in sight. This got me thinking about my next time on stage. What would I do? How would I handle that and then the speaker opened his mouth and said “Thanks for the branding effort, next question please.” I thought to myself, what a great way to handle that.

I could go on and on about how I almost laughed out loud but I want to get back to the point: Source from Your Life! Have the courage to expose a problem you have had or seen and reveal the solution you have found with a bit of the thinking behind it. Be a bit personal too! I love to hear how people’s brains work, don’t you?

By sourcing yourself you will not only have an endless fountain of stories but you will learn about yourself, build your brand’s image (you) and always be talking about your niche!

    Patty, I love the “Thanks for the branding effort!” comment. Sweet!

    You mention “allowing” creativity by distraction. So true for me! On deadline, I find I can get my creative side to come out and play more, if I keep my left brain busy with a video.

    Wonderful post!

    I think that you bring up many great points but the one that stands out to me the most is your point about courage. At least in my case fear holds me back in blogging: What if I am boring? What if it is too personal? What if someone has a better solution?

    So thank you for the reminder to take risks.

    You are so right! Great ideas always come to me in the shower! If someone could invent pen and paper that could be used in the shower I’d be able to capture all those great ideas. As soon as I step out of the shower – poof! – they’re gone! LOL!
