DESCRIPTION

I have been asked on more than a few occasions how I am able to write my blog articles. Like, how do I come up with the ideas and how much time does each article take me.

More specifically, where does this blog come from? My best answer is: The car, the shower, bed Just about anywhere and everywhere! (Read More)

Like, how do I come up withthe ideas and how much time does each article take me. Answering this question can be as awkward as when ourkids ask us where babies come from, however for our kids we have a medical answer. Where do blogs come from?More specifically, where does this blog come from? My best answer is: The car, the shower, bed Just aboutanywhere and everywhere!I am NOT one to sit down and force myself to write an article. Actually, I refuseto do that. Unless I already have an idea I will not even attempt to write. Ialways want the blogs on our site to be in my/our true voice, and forcing myselfto write would give you the equivalent of a 1000-word essay on Americanarchitecture. In other words, it would be forced and probably drawn out. (Note: Ilike American architecture. I just dont like being told what to write.)This morning is luckily one of those days when I had 3-4 blog article ideas popup in my brain. Where did they come from? My only guess is God. Within anhour Ive been able to punch out 3 articles and get them scheduled for thefuture. Yep, I get enough ideas that I am able to pre-schedule my articles.If you are looking to get a blog started or expand a blog you currently have, my recommendation is this: Dont thinkabout what youre going to write. Write what feels right. If an article is take you too long you may not be inspiredenough on the topic to write about it right now. Save it as a draft for future use and wait until you ARE inspired.So going back to the questions, Where do blogs come from?The best blogs come from the authors inspiration and expertise.You cannot force inspiration. How many times have you had a word or name on the tip of your tongue, and as longas you tried to force yourself to think of it you could not? But as soon as you stopped trying and started thinking aboutsomething else the name or word came right to you?This has happened to me plenty, and this is how the Sutton Creative Studios blog sustains itself. My notebook has apermanent residence in my purse because without fail I will think of an article when I am out and about. Just this pastweekend I sat through three sport events for our boys and came up with three new articles. One was entirely draftedout while the team was still doing warm-ups!Even if youre not looking to make money with your blog, it is YOUR blog. Your insight is what the blog is based on.Speak to your audience in your own true voice, and about topics you are passionate about.*****</li></ul> <p> 2.
