A few months ago I was contacted by a new online article author. They were explaining how they were having trouble with writer’s block. Over the years, there have been times when I’ve experienced this psychological phenomenon, but mostly I disregard its existence, I will not use that excuse or let it stop me. It takes a little bit of willpower to get over those challenges when they occur, but if you deny them a place your mind, you will be all the better for it. Now then, I’d like to talk to you about how to find new writing prompts for your online article niche.
What I recommend is something that I recently read on a blog, the blogger had posted on one of the online article directory sites. They suggested that you read through all the comments on blogs and news stories that have to do with your area of expertise or business industry, and try to see what other people are saying. I’m sure you’ve done this before, and have you ever noticed that you read a comment and you wanted to write a comment back, but you didn’t because you didn’t want to get into an argument. You know the person making the comment was incorrect, as they had either misled themselves, or just didn’t have the knowledge to see through their own shallow arguments.
Well, maybe it’s time you took the high road, rather than responding to that ugly commenter or the person who is busy complaining, or telling the rest of the world how something was when you know darn good well it isn’t like that – maybe you could set the record straight? Maybe you could write an article and simply started out by saying; “some people believe,” and take that commenters complaint paraphrasing it, and then explain why that simply isn’t so. In fact, I bet I have something like 3000 articles that were inspired from reading comments of people who had posted online.
The blogger that made that blog post also suggested that it is a good way to gain insight into what your readers are thinking. Therefore it might also help you answer the questions in advance, or put to rest any misinformation floating around online. We all know there’s a ton of it, and it’s up to us online article authors in our various niches to set the record straight as I’ve said. Indeed it is my hope that you will please consider all this and think on it next time you get writer’s block, there’s always something to write about, and sometimes you just need a prompt or a muse.
