The pressure to come up with consistently new, engaging, and read-worthy content is no easy task. When you feel your running out of ideas to write about it’s okay, it happens to all businesses. That is why taking a step back and seeing what others are currently doing can inspire your new direction. You may be thinking isn’t that encouraging copycats? I would 100% disagree. Taking an existing idea, tweaking it a bit, and making it your own is what most successful businesses do it.
