No, I don’t mean you should go and rob because, if you’re caught, you will certainly go to Jail and, don’t tell them I advised you to do so via my post Lol, just kidding 🙂
Don’t mind me please, when I talked about stealing here, what mean actually is stealing your competitor’s ideas. And mind you, I didn’t say you should copy them but, it’s all about drawing inspirations from what they’re doing and then, trying it on your own business.
Many of you still finds it very hard to update your blogs simply because you don’t know exactly what to write about and, this same issue have lead to the downfall of many blogs today but, I can tell you that there is always a way out for any problem.

However, I know that you might have read many blog posts on the internet that taught you how to overcome writers block but, have you even tried to practice the tips you learnt from those posts? It’s not always a matter of reading the articles just for reading sake, if you read and don’t act then, you’re just wasting your time.
So please, it will do you a lot of good to always try as much as you can to act upon what you’ve read, this will always make a difference in your business and mind you, you can always reverse it if you don’t like the results you got from the idea.
Drawing Inspirations From Your Competitors Work
This is exactly what I’m talking about. One of the best ways to gather inspiration for a new blog post or even a new anything is by looking at what your competitors are doing and then, doing the same thing in your own unique style.
Take the auto-mobile industry for example, if you look around today, there are so many Cars that looks alike on the road, it’s obvious that all the Car manufacturers that built those cars did not built them the same time, one company built it first and the others started stealing the idea.
Take for example, Toyota Sienna mini van. Do you know that Honda also has that same type of mini van? I think they called their own Honda Odessey or something like that. Do you also know that almost all the other Car manufacturing companies out there has that same type of Car today?
There are still so many examples to give as regards to this but, I’m sure you’ve gotten the main point of what I’m saying right? Good.
The thing is this, whenever you’re stuck and don’t know what else to write on your blog, just browse through the internet, visit sites like BizSugar, Blokube, Inbound, Facebook and other similar sites that people always come to post their latest post. You should also visit your friends sites too.
Once you’re on those sites, look out for a post headline that interest you and one you know that your readers will enjoy reading and then, read the post from beginning to the end and by the time you finish, all you have to do is to take what you’ve read and repackage it adding your own unique voice and ideas and then, come up with a very interesting piece that will wow your readers?.
If you master this formula very well then, you will never run out of blog post ideas again….Period.
Also, if you see a blog design that you like, it’s also the same thing, all you have to do is to add that same style to your blog. If you see a particular feature that you also like on a competitors blog, you can also steal it. If you can’t figure out how he did it on your own then, just make the person a friend and ask him, if he is good enough, he will tell you.
Finally, the other thing you can do is when you see a trending topic; you should also use it to create a viral post that people will like.
So, stop complaining of writers block because, you already have my own secrets of overcoming it now, you go and try what I said and see if it will not work for you.
