In This Post, We’ll Talk About Mind Body Techniques to Help You Write Amazing Articles
You’ve sat down in front of your computer for a while. You have a fantastic blog article idea. You believe it has the potential to make you and your site extremely prominent, with A-list writers linking to you and hundreds of retweets.
You have no control over your enthusiasm. You simply want to get started on the most brilliant blog post idea you’ve ever had. However, something in your head prevents you from doing so.
“Well, let me twitter for a while and then write the piece when my mind is free and in the mood to write,” you tell yourself.
I’m sorry to disappoint you, but the moment you’ve been waiting for will not arrive any sooner.
If you’re going to twitter for a while, there’s just one thing you should tweet right now, and I’ll get to that ‘tweet’ later.
Now it’s time to use your creativity…
You begin tweeting but never finish the post. So, what do you do now? I mean, there’s always the next day, right? That is, at least, what your mind tells you.
“I’ll definitely write the post tomorrow — first thing in the morning,” I tell myself. I’m not going to check my email, open Tweetdeck, or play a game until I complete this post.”
When you get up the next morning, the first thing you probably do is check your mail.
Back to reality, which is most likely the same as you envisioned (;))
Now, I’m telling you all of this because I’ve been there, and I still do from time to time. I’m not an expert on productivity. The tactics you’ll discover in this piece are the ones I employ whenever I think to myself, “I’ll write tomorrow.”
So, what will this blog article teach you?
Most likely, you haven’t seen half of these suggestions before. Here’s a brief rundown of what this post is about:
– 2 tools that are really beneficial… – 2 ways twitter may help you quit postponing your writing And, best of all, it’s free — one strategy that great copywriters do on a daily basis to overcome procrastination.
And there’s more…
I have no intention of wasting your time. I place the same value on time as you do. So I’ll tell you about these seven approaches right immediately. They are as follows:
1. Start writing in a dark room with an egg timer.
How to come up with thoughtful article ideas:
By the way, Dark Room (for Windows only) is a piece of software. Take a look at WriteRoom for Mac.
Sometimes all you have is a minor issue to begin with. And in those instances, this strategy will be ideal.
Set the timer to 20 minutes on the Egg Timer website. Open the Dark Room application. Begin composing the article now. Even if you can’t get started, don’t just look at the blank screen for 20 minutes. By the 10-minute point, you’ll almost certainly have started composing anything.
This procedure is easy and effective. Egg Timer and Dark Room are both absolutely free to use.
2. Take a look at a success story.
There are a plethora of them available. Read blog entries that explain how the author earned $20,683.09 in blog revenue or blogs that educate you how to gain 6500+ subscribers.
A blog writing success story
These tales may entice you to start your own blog. When I don’t feel like posting, I bookmark posts like this and read them later.
When I don’t want to start writing a blog article, I read success tales. I’ll write it tomorrow, or the day after tomorrow, or the week after that, or maybe never.”
You may also read about blogging success tales in general. Simply go to the Hubspot blog and look for (or use the tag browser to look for) terms like:
– “How we Developed”
– “We boosted”
There are a plethora of success stories like this to be found:
This strategy differs from the first in that you learn about what others have done to achieve instead of receiving inspiration and motivation. When I’m feeling overwhelmed by blogging or ready to give up, I employ this strategy. The wonderful thing about success tales is that they are written by genuine individuals who have achieved success in blogging rather than some phony expert.
3. Read praise you’ve already received.
At some point, you’ve probably gotten favorable feedback or praises from your readers. Take a look at these. I’m confident it will motivate you.
Here’s where you can be creative with Twitter. Favorite a tweet when someone says something kind about you. To do so, click the star symbol next to the tweet. This adds it to your favorites list. It is available for reading at any time.
This is one of the ways we may utilize Twitter to help us reach our goal of overcoming procrastination. Now I’ll show you how to do it the other way (did I mention there are two ways?)
4. Tweet that you’ll be publishing a post today.
Remember how I said you shouldn’t start tweeting when you’re not in the mood to write unless it’s a’special tweet’?
“I’ve got to go write now,” she says. I’ll make a post today.”
You may rephrase it whatever you like as long as you’re telling your followers that an article will be published today.
This is effective. Guaranteed. Why?
Because you’re announcing to the world that you’re going to write. When you speak only in your thoughts, you may get away from it. However, you will feel bad if you do not publish an article after promising all of your followers that you will do so today. If you don’t make a post, they won’t question you about it, but they will know.
5. Begin reading the headlines.
Some of the best copywriters employ this strategy. It serves as a source of inspiration for Brian Clark. It’s how Michael Martine comes up with headlines. Many other bloggers and copywriters feel the same way.
Reading headlines is beneficial not just in terms of coming up with blog post ideas, but also in terms of writing. It awakens your “passion for writing.”
I keep a collection of headline swipes that I go to when I’m looking for ideas. You should make one as well. It’s easy to do and doesn’t cost anything. Simply keep a file with all of the outstanding headlines you come across.
6. Create a post with a list of things to do.
When you don’t feel like writing, list articles are the ideal method to get started blogging. I know it may seem paradoxical, but list postings allowed me to develop my writing abilities even when I didn’t feel like it when I first started blogging.
For months, I’ve made list posts my default postings. Why? I’m not sure.
When I didn’t feel like writing anything else, I loved the concept of composing a list post. It aided me in writing on a regular basis and in generating ideas that I would not have thought of otherwise.
7. Take a look at a video… One to be inspired by.
When I mention video, I don’t mean just any video. There are simply too many excellent films available to keep you busy for an extended period of time, and you may never return to writing.
Only watch the ones that inspire you. I suggest you watch Gary Vaynerchuk’s video below.
I’m not sure why, but every time Gary mentions “hustle,” my heart races. You will sense it as well. He has a lot of charm.
I’ve saved it on my computer’s hard drive so I don’t have to go to YouTube every time.
If none of these motivates you to begin writing your piece, consider the following:
8. Leave a remark on any article or social media post that interests you.
This post, however, is not one of them. Visit any blog, your favorite blog, and leave a comment on a post.
When you leave a remark, you truly overcome the barrier of “I don’t feel like writing” and enter the creative zone.
Your mind begins to open up, and you will feel compelled to jot down your thoughts on paper. I’m telling you this from personal experience, and I’m sure you’ve had similar experiences while leaving a comment on a blog page.
You will also be donating something to them if the blog is one of your favorites.
It’s worth a shot. It always works for me.
So, you have a fantastic idea for a blog article but are having trouble getting started. It’s all a figment of your imagination. Simply use one of the seven methods listed above. In no time, you’ll be halfway through the next excellent blog article.
