This week I’ve decided I’m going to do a mini series as it is my 24th birthday on Thursday, and as I’m getting older, I want to share some wise words with you all from my personal knowledge and experience.
So today I’m going to talk about the pain involved with developing content ideas. Trust me, I know. Creating content ideas can be a pain in the backside. Yes, there are days where you find you have loads of inspiration, but there are also the days where you stare blankly out the window waiting for a spark of inspiration to appear in front of you.
When it comes to crafting blog post ideas, it involves a combination of research, creativity and patience. Although the brainstorming process can be fun and creative, it is also an extremely stressful process (I have nearly been driven to tears over it!), but nevertheless, it is the most important step of the writing process.
As I’m turning 24 (sorry for mentioning it again, but I’m trying to make it sink in) I wanted to give you 24 ideas for blog posts which I hope you can find some inspiration from, as I know I needed some inspiration and help in the past, so, here we go…
- Tell the story of your personal brand.
