Today’s episode is about how to work out what to write about when you feel like you have nothing left to say. It’s part two on this topic, so you might like to listen back to episode 80 first. I share 14 different types of stories you can use to get people excited about reading your blog, and resources and reading you can refer to into the future when you get stuck.
