Sometimes when I’m getting ready to sit down at my computer and do a little writing, my mind kind of goes awol on me. The idea that I had before I sat down just ups and leaves me.
Then I’m sitting there staring at a blank screen with a blinking cursor.
When that would happen it would piss me off big time.
So one day when I sat down to start writing I said that I wouldn’t wind up staring at a blank screen if my idea left me. And like clock work, when I hit the seat cushion, out went my idea.
But this time I had an answer.
When my idea left, I decided to visit a site that I’ve been visiting for years. It was out of frustration that I made the visit, but what happened once I put two and two together lead me to a new breakthrough.
The site I went to was called springwise.com
As I said, I had visited this site many times before in the past, I just never did so when I was at a loss for ideas. Well, this time upon my visit my mind began to go haywire after seeing what other people were coming up with. The site captures ideas from around the world that are innovative and inspirational.
However I do have a warning for you though
Spingwise.com as great as it is, isn’t for everyone. If you’re looking for topics to write about for your blog, then this might not be the site for you. On the other hand, if you’re the type of person who’s always on the lookout for ways to add new products or services to you business that could lead to an increase in your income, then this site could be your diamond in the rough.
So what happens if you are just looking for new ideas you can write about for your blog?
No need to worry if that is you. The folks at springwise.com have a sister site. And that site is called trendwatching.com.
This is the site whereby you can get a ton of ideas to write about on your blog if you can’t seem to get going. What this site will do for you is it will give you a chance to be seen as a thought leader in your industry.
And just in case you were wondering how that can happen, it’s kind of easy to see why once you visit the site. What these guy’s and gals do over at the site is they follow and give you the heads up on new trends. Each month they give you a briefing on what will soon become hot. When you start writing about these trends ahead of time, your market will be thanking you for the heads up.
But here’s the real kicker…
Show your market how they can capitalize off of these trends and you will be definitely be seen in their eyes as a rockstar.
How about we wrap things up here.
