7 Ways to Look Outside the Box When You're Writing a Blog Post

You can do these tasks anytime you want during your post writing process:

1. Don't exist in your news feed - We all love to follow popular blogs and websites but it doesn't mean you have to live it every day.  Keep your thoughts and comments fresh by not commenting as often.

2. Convey authentic thoughts more frequently - It's very hard to have new information when blog posts are being put out every second of the day.  But not impossible!  It's easier to use another persons thoughts than your own.  Try using those notes from ideas and thoughts you've had and put them to good use.

3. Link to different websites at least one a week - If you're using other peoples website links for content curation don't keep going back to the same bloggers.  Research as much as you can so you can make your linking as diverse as possible.

4. If a topic is hot give it a week before you publish your own blog post - When a topic is trending it doesn't mean people are necessarily listening.  Let the dust settle before you start talking about it.

5. Be as original as you can be - Don't look to others, use your own thoughts on your chosen blog topic. You never know people might like it.

6. Step outside of your comfort zone - Don't be afraid of messing up when you tackle a difficult subject.  At least the results will be real.

7. Don't worry about what other bloggers think - If your blog ranks high in search engines and you're blog isn't mentioned on a list of top bloggers, but feel you should be.  Don't sweat it.  Your readers know who you are and what you're about and that's all that matters.

Make a change this week, start living outside of your comfort zone.  It's time to take charge and let your blogging voice be heard.
