Have you been experiencing writer’s block when it comes to creating content for your real estate blog? Don’t worry – we all go through it. In fact, any content creator will tell you that burnouts are a very real struggle. So what should you do when it happens?

Let’s face it, no one expects writers to be able to come up with completely original ideas by themselves 100% of the time…now add in the fact that you are a real estate professional who may not have much writing experience and you’re bound to experience creative blocks. That is why part of what makes good content is the writer’s ability to be inspired by other people. An easy way to do that is to subscribe to your favorite real estate blogs, if you haven’t already. Set time aside every few days to read through some posts for about 30-45 minutes. If you come across an idea that you think could be used in the future, write it down and save the article so you can reference it. Next time your writer’s block strikes, grab one of those ideas and run with it. Whether you choose to simply summarize their idea or to turn it into something completely your own, keeping this list is the easiest way to create content on days when you just can’t seem to come up with something yourself.

NOTE: we were all in school once and therefore should be very aware of the rules of plagiarism. Do not forget to cite your sources and/or ask for sharing permissions when necessary.

To prove my point, let’s just take a second to think about what I’m doing right now…

When coming up with ideas for this blog post, I started by reading through some great content on Inman.com. I made sure to save the articles with some notes on how I could use them in the future. This morning, as I scrolled through this list, I was suddenly inspired to address the issue of burnout and share my advice on how to push through it.

And now here we are.

So, next time you’re looking for an idea for your real estate blog, start by taking a look at the following posts from Inman. If these articles were able to inspire me to address content burnout, imagine what they can do for you. Use these ideas as a jumping off point to come up with your own original content… goodbye burnout, hello inspiration.
