5 Weird Content Brainstorming Rituals (Guaranteed Not to Involve Coffee Enemas)



From Blank Page to Blog Star: My 5 Weird Content Brainstorming Rituals (Guaranteed Not to Involve Coffee Enemas)


Have you ever stared at a blinking cursor, willing words to appear on the screen? We've all been there, fellow content creators. The blank page mocks us, a vast emptiness taunting our creativity.




Fear not, for I, your friendly neighborhood wordsmith, am here to banish blogger's block with a quirky arsenal of brainstorming techniques. Forget everything you think you know about productivity gurus sipping green juice in perfectly lit offices. This is about getting those creative juices flowing, even if they taste a little strange.



Ritual #1: Shower Epiphanies

There's a reason why so many "Eureka!" moments strike us in the shower. The rhythmic patter of water, the warm steam, it all creates a strangely conducive environment for brainstorming. Next time you're feeling creatively bankrupt, hop in the shower with a waterproof notepad (or resort to yelling your ideas at the shower wall – just be sure your roommates aren't expecting an opera performance).



Ritual #2: Talking to My Houseplants (and Hoping They Talk Back)

Sometimes, the best way to break out of your own head is to talk it out. But who wants to listen to your ramblings about keyword density and follower engagement? Enter my trusty houseplants. Philodendron Phil and Monstera Mary might not offer much in the way of constructive criticism, but there's something calming about explaining your content woes to a leafy audience. Who knows, maybe they'll surprise you with a brilliant metaphor (although that might be the fumes from the experimental fertilizer talking).



Ritual #3: The Power of Playlists (Dance Breaks Optional, But Encouraged)

Music can be a powerful muse. Curate a playlist filled with songs that ignite your creative spark. It could be upbeat dance music to get your energy pumping, calming classical tunes to soothe your soul, or even movie soundtracks to set the mood for your content. Blast the volume, sing along at the top of your lungs, and let the music transport you to a place where ideas flow freely. (Air guitar solos highly encouraged).



Ritual #4: Shamelessly Steal from the Best (But Make it Legal)

There's no shame in finding inspiration from the content creators you admire. Spend some time reading blog posts you love, watching videos that captivated you, or listening to podcasts that sparked your imagination. But don't just copy – revamp, rework, and reimagine those ideas to create something unique that reflects your own voice and style.



Ritual #5: The Napkin Manifesto (Because Inspiration Strikes in the Oddest Places)

We all have those moments of brilliance that hit us when we're least expecting them – like while waiting in line for coffee or, a personal favorite, browsing the cereal aisle. Always be prepared for these creative lightning strikes! Keep a stash of napkins and pens in your bag or purse. You never know when you'll be struck by a blog post title worthy of the cereal aisle gods.




There you have it, my fellow wordsmiths. Embrace the weird, unleash your inner shower singer, and get ready to banish the blank page forever. Now, go forth and create something amazing (and maybe give your houseplants a pep talk while you're at it).

During the interview, we learned a lot about Denise, her business, what motivates her, and what's in store for the future.  Watch the interview: Read the transcript below: Who or what inspires you when it comes to business? Oh wow! The ‘Who’ is my family…they inspire me. Some people may say that there’s this one person that really touched their lives…[for me] its my family. My family inspires me to go to the next level. I love them with a Great Love and I want them all to be successful and I believe they need a role model to be that. And I’m pushing myself to be that way. And so, they inspire me…my children, my grandchildren - knowing that I'm building a legacy for them to go up under, that is what inspires me the most. Are there any members of your family that do what you do as well? No! It's funny because I always wanted to have this famil
