Blogging Inspiration


I was wondering how other bloggers find inspiration for blog posts? Some times, I find the ideas all around me. I walk through the store, see a guy talking loudly on his bluetooth and- voila! A blog post! Or I hear a joke that gets me thinking... (Always a bad idea;). Or Sometimes its just a matter of sitting in traffic
Its also interesting how I usually get multiple ideas at once. I will have a day where I think of five different post ideas, then I go 3 days without any. But you know, a dry spell like I am having now is making me think I need to get married. That would definitely give me some post ideas. ;)

Sometimes I have no inspioration, sometimes every two seconds I'm itching to write something new.
When that happens, it's because I'm getting ideas from my surroundings.

well, i think it's pretty obvious where my ideas come from. but WHAT DRY SPELL??? you posted 15 times in 25 days darling. that's not so dry if you ask me!

Chan- (you don't mind if I call you that, right?;) But what makes a post idea versus a regular occurance?

Anon- um?

LS- two days with a total blank mind when I think about blogging is considered a dry spell. Even of I go longer without blogging, I have ideas... I am getting frustrated! (Or maybe busy? ;)

My inspiration really does come from Hashem...its so random...sometimes something religious, sometimes my own rantings, some piece of news...it just seems to be whatever pops into my head and what my mood is - whether i feel like researching or blathering on (apparently, like right now LOL!)

Na, marriage would just get you something besides the blog to think about. Then you really wont have any posts.

Something Different said...

Shorty- what a nice way to look at it. :-)

CIB- so are you rooting for me to stay single? ;)

G6- Isn't awesome? I can't believe nobody else found it funny... ;)I have some more great cartoons up my sleeve...

Inspiration can come from staring at a blank screen or from davening in a shul, you just have to make sure you keep it changing.

Something Different said...

MIM- dunno why, but lately these things are not inspiring blog posts... :( I am gonna keep trying though. ;)

shorty- i almost puked...that was a very fluffy comment.

my inspiration for post usually come during shmoma esrei, or shiur. or long car rides to and from dates. SD, start dating, it'll get interesting

Something Different said...

HTTA- Why didn't I think of that?? :-p
I'd love to start dating. I just need a guy...

Not at all, find a fellow as fast as possible. ;) Amain, Amayn, ViAmen.

There is a little quiz you can take that will tell you what type of blogger you are, if you are a life blogger you will probably be at this stuff forever, well your whole life.

Inspiration strikes when you least expect it...
Oh, and marriage doesn't give you more or less things to blog about. Trust me, I still stare at the computer screen.

Something Different said...

NMF- Yeah, but I would at least get a couple of blog posts out of it. ;)

chanie said...

I second NMF- marriage doesn't give you any more or less things to think about. Now, if the guy you end up marrying gets your creative juices flowing, all the better.

SD- a) It's fine- don't think twice. b) If you're having normal experiences and not really involved or care about it, then you're not going to be inspired. But if you start getting inspired from every little thing that happens, that's what makes the difference.
