Bloggers Block? How about Inspiration Overflow!

Many bloggers write about the so called bloggers block. It happens when a blogger just doesn’t know what to write or lacks the motivation to do it.

I have a different problem most of the time! It’s the exact opposite of bloggers block. I like to call it “inspiration overflow“.

It’s about having too many ideas and wanting to write all the time. I just can’t handle it.

At any given I have at least a 12 or more article ideas. I just don’t have the time or money to write the actual posts.

I have blogged too much in the past. I have even neglected my actual paid work and my family.

Blogging itself doesn’t pay as long as you don’t sell something else.

As my blog does not earn money directly right now I have to limit the time and effort spent on it. In many cases I have to write for clients instead because such posts pay immediately.


How to cope with too many ideas

How to deal with inspiration overflow? Why is inspiration overflow a problem in the first place?

  • You can’t inundate your readers with more than a few articles a week. It’s too much to digest! Most of them will be overlooked
  • More information means less understanding. Too many messages become noise! The reader can’t deal with them
  • Readers will have the impression than you choose quantity over quality on your blog
  • People won’t comment anymore because their comments would end up too far down to be noticed

How can you handle too many things to cover:

  • Collect links and ideas and sift through them afterwards. Only the best should be selected then
  • When you have ten instances of something you want to present, just wait for the next ten and write about 20 reasons to do something instead of 10
  • Give away ideas that you can’t implement anymore or even sell them. I also have a lot of start up ideas. Who wants one?
  • Share your problem with the blogosphere! They will ignore or ridicule you and you will feel better afterwards
  • Delete the bookmarks you already researched and hope that you don’t find the links again
  • Tell your partner that your computer is more important to you than s/he is! Your computer will have to die then.
  • Offend and annoy your readers! They will flame back at you so you won’t like to face them again too soon

What do you think you lazy bloggers? Are you still blocked? Not enough ideas? I got dozens of them. Just contact me to get some!
