1. Reading!!!

If you want to be able to master the act of blogging, then you should read as many blogs, articles, magazines books as you can. You should read both the classics and the contemporary masters, and use the writing of others to inspire you to write some posts or stories.

2. Doing writing exercise.

Writing exercises have helped a lot of writers develop their creativity, find inspiration in unlikely places, and to force themselves to write when they feel like they have “no ideas.” You can start with a daily warm-up writing exercise just for 10-15 minutes to get your mind going, or even write for an hour based on the exercise even if you don’t feel inspired at all.

3. Having a setting

An idea for your next blog or even book, can come from a strong sense of place. By this stage you should know what type of article, you’re writing about. Maybe a sci-fi story could be set in an underground laboratory, or a horror tale in a dilapidated shack. You don’t have to get inspired by a breathtaking beach or by your amazing vacation to Venice. Instead, get inspiration from the ordinary!

4. Sharing a story.

Always be on the lookout for stories that your friends or family members have told you that would make great blog idea. If your mother or grandmother are always telling you stories about their childhoods, start writing them down. Try to imagine what it was like to grow up in a different time or place and start writing out the possibilities. Don’t be put off if you don’t know everything about that time period; you can always do your research.
