    Nile Flores: Avoiding Bloggers Block

    WordCamp Los Angeles 2017Speaker: Nile Flores

    October 10, 2017 — Most, not all bloggers hit the dreaded wall called Bloggers Block. You blog, but you either fall into one of the following:

    1. You’ve reached a plateau with your site, and just cannot seem to write any more.
    2. You really are not sure what you can cover on your site. (For those with businesses, you might be scared of spamming.)
    3. You are afraid you might be copying other sites in your niche, that may be covering the same topics.
    4. Juggling family or personal issues.

    There’s a solution for all of these!

    I am going to go over some tips to help you overcome Blogger’s Block, and get you to think outside the box when coming up with loads of topics for you. Don’t let search results scare you- your blog voice and your knowledge can do wonders for you!
