Hey y'all, Any advice, pointers to vids/training on this issue hugely appreciated.

Have only got like 10-15 pages on my site, seriously needing to build up my content but stuck bout a week now at the starting line.

Any tips on getting through writers block would be insanely appreciated.

Thanks!
Matty

I've seen posts of other people having this same issue friend. If your niche is broad you can find endless ideas about that broad niche. It is said to narrow down on our niche before starting to write about it. But I personally think that people will run out of ideas on what to write on their niches if it's too narrowed. You can click on this excellent training by Loes. All the best!

Thanks heaps for the link, I'll definitely take a look.

I know what you mean, but yeah, my niche is fairly broad in its own ways i guess, I technically have a lifetime of inspiration in front of me, but trynna work out what people are exactly looking for not always quite as easy as once believed.

Thanks again.

Just start writing about anything Matty to get the flow going and eventually as you are doing this, you might be surprised that ideas start automatically popping into your head! Type them as they do, and then go back and edit out any mumbo jumbo leaving only relevant information! That's how I do it!

Also take a lot of pictures about what your normal content is and when your done, fill in the narrative between those images!

Just a couple of ideas, my friend!

Jeff, thanks as always brother, appreciate that hard.

Yeah I'm definitely one of those people too, constantly writing down little tidbits i think of, then struggling when it comes to crafting into something worthy of reading lol.

I like that approach, this is awesome, getting tons of ideas just from posting my one question, you guys are awesome. :-)

Glad to hear it brother.

That's kinda how I'm trynna approach this whole online journey too-taking it one day at a time, and reminding myself that time will naturally pass anyway....so i can continue grinding on the 9-5 forever, or use this time to up my skills & experience in stuff that can actually change EVERYTHING for my family and I.

Take care buddy, hope it's another good week for you.

Hi Mat
There are ideas everywhere... most things that I read or hear or see trigger an idea or more. Every idea, whether it seems whacky or not, gets written down. It takes seconds to create an entry on my system on iPhone and to add a few notes if necessary to jog my memory later. I don't evaluate them until later.

Some turn out to be rubbish ... I review weekly and delete the rubbish and start on others.

I currently have, literally, several hundred ideas. Currently 88 are in my writing 'kitchen' (as I call my database) at different stages of development.

I apologise to all those to whom I promised a post on my process... I should have more time beginning later this month and will get around to it.

Thanks heaps Richard, that's definitely true too...some of the best stuff I've ever written came from tiny little post it notes of ideas scrapped together etc.

I do have a whole bunch of unpublished stuff I've done just on my site content section of WA, so might have to start digging through the crates a little.

Thanks again mate, appreciate it.

Hi, I do like several of the others suggest. step away completely for a day or two. That will clear your mind.

To get more ideas, try answerthrepublic on your selected keyword, check Quora and Reddit for what is trending in the different forums on the two platforms.

Use Facebook groups that is relevant to your topics and engage in them and discuss your topic. You will get a lot of ideas from it.

Awesome, thanks so much Roy, that's given me a good 4 or more avenues to look down for some inspiration-again all areas I wouldn't have thought to look-being still fairly new to all this.

Thanks heaps again, appreciate that.

You are welcome, my friend. Interacting in affiliate marketing groups on Facebook has a lot of benefits. Besides new ideas to use as topics for content, it is easy to connect and create relations beneficial to your business.

An example from my venture is what just happened two days ago when I was invited to partner up for one year on a very attractive software bundle made by a very successful affiliate marketer.

It gives me a great free incentive to offer visitors to my website in exchange for their email.

I got this offer due to interactions in the same FB group as he was a member of.

Hang in there, Matt :-)

That's awesome Roy, and thanks for sharing, can definitely see the endless benefits for all by remaining connected with other like minded individuals.

I'm definitely gonna be reading a few of your posts btw Roy, have seen a few titles already I'm keen to learn from.

Thanks again brother, all the best.

What I do is just step away and clear my head, when I can I have some wine and relax. I mean I totally clear my head and do not think of it at all or worry about it. We all get too uptight and over-concerned about what we are going to write, about the words to use, and everything else that goes on and on. Just step away for a while and let yourself relax and get into a thinking mode. Think about the days you went golfing, fishing, or whatever you did for entertainment. Perhaps you can go and do it again and while you are doing it you just might think a little on your subject. I mostly think about my subjects long before I write them, I will spend a day or two thinking about it sometimes. Then all of a sudden I can fire off 3-4 WA posts at one time if I desire. Do not worry about those keywords either remember you have jazzy and then the thesaurus. Writers' block is just your mind telling you you are too uptight, so drop the pressure, find the relief valve, and opened it up wide.

Fantastic advice thanks Joe, and yes, that description above paints me well at the moment, so a step back for a little could help.

As you mentioned, it is all too easy for us to get stuck in our own heads at times, so good having all you awesome people to turn to when I need a booster injection.

Thanks again, definitely gonna try to relax about it a little more-like you, once I start writing, I too find it hard to stop sometimes, bangin' out a few in one go, but definitely think taking a bit of an outside look in for a bit may help.
