You can have a blog about your adventures travelling across the world.  If you don’t want to travel you can also learn about other locations by looking at pictures and reading books.

“Writer and reader Andrea Badgley sets off on a literary journey: she launched Andrea Reads America, in which she plans to read three books set in each state of the US.”

Or Think Small

Don’t forget about the little things. Small goals can help you stay motivated and help defeat writers block.

You can:

  • Establish a quick feature: weekly or daily post
  • Use daily prompts to give you thoughts a jump-start
  • Download the  365 Writing Prompts ebook
  • Diversify your content
  • Consolidate and organize your media, favorite readings and finds
Answer every comment personally

Make your readers feel special. It only takes a few minutes but can pay off in the long run with new friends, business partners, or co-authors.

Run a contest

Join blogging events or launch your own

“Or, why not create your own for 2014? Over the holidays, we mentioned Linda Silvestri’s fun and festive sketch project, in which she established HoHoDooDa (Holiday Doodle a Day). From recipe challenges hosted by food bloggers to reading clubs led by bibliophiles, consider your own event — then submit it to the blog listings page so others can join.”
