Where to Find Ideas for Writing? Think about Your Past!

How to get ideas for writing

Have you ever asked yourself, “How to get ideas for writing?” This is an ultimately common question people ask themselves if their task is to write something.

Today I want to give you ultimately powerful insights how to find content ideas from your past.

Think About Yourself 5 Years Ago

The things you are doing today are normal for you. The skills you have today feel like something very normal. If you have played piano for 5 years, playing piano feels like something very natural. There doesn’t seem to be anything special to know how to play for you.

But think about yourself when 5 years ago when you started practicing for the first time. It wasn’t so easy and natural. It took a lot of concentration to play the right chords and notes. In the past, you needed someone to teach you. But now you can be the teacher.

That’s exactly how many people feel. Playing piano is something special for them.

If your website’s niche is to teach people how to play the piano you may think, “teaching C-chord is extremely basics. Everything knows what is C-chord. They probably want something more advanced.”

Most of the people in the world don’t know how to play C-chord by piano. It’s advanced stuff for them!

different worlds

All of these people are living in the different worlds!

We Live in the Different World’s

Do you remember Mark Knopfler singing in “Brothers in arms”?

“There’s so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones.

You and I live in the different worlds. You, Abdullah or Yakamashi live in different worlds. You and your reader are living in the different worlds.

You understand the metaphor?

I have difference competence than you have. But you definitely know something that I don’t. You have always something to share.

There are about 7 400 000 000 people in this planet. If something has helped you it will help also someone else. Not probably everyone, but definitely someone!

It doesn’t matter are you 20, 40 or 80 years old. Let me repeat Every single person has something to share. You have learned something during your life. Share it to others. I am willing to hear! (Check my 6 Tips for Readable Text)

Don’t Hesitate to Share the “Basic-Stuff”

As I said if something is basic for you, it’s probably not basic for someone else. Let’s think about some examples.

1.If you are making money online I can definitely say that you know a lot more than most of the people. You have a lot of things to share.

2.If you have been a Christian you have a lot of wisdom to share who has just found Christ. Share to others what you have learned over the years.

3.If you don’t know anything about anything you can make questions and connect with people (Google loves websites with discussion).

Most of the people are looking for the “basic stuff”. Only a little percentage of people are really looking for something very advanced teachings like programming course level 9132849. Of course some search for programming course level 9132849 but that’s probably 0,00001% of world’s population.

Remember your “Basic stuff” may be highly important for many people.

Basic Chinese, Learn Chinese

Teach me something more simple, please!

    If you are creating tutorials for users that visit your site, it is definitely a great idea to always start with the basics because a lot of people just don’t know what you know. Your piano example was a great way to demonstrate this.

    Someone who has been learning something for ages or is a professional in a certain industry may think that a certain thing is extremely easy and does not need to be explained but of course not everyone will share that same knowledge.

      That’s true. I was just yesterday listening to Russell Brunson. He said that when we need to learn something, we don’t actually need a guru. We just need somebody who is just a few steps ahead of us. That’s enough to get us moving forward. It was quite inspirational thought about learning.

    Haha, you are so right – In fact I asked myself two days ago about what to write about. I never thought a about picking up ideas from my already created content and create a new one!
    I learned something new here 🙂
    Thanks for the wonderful post – opened my eyes a bit, I always had some difficulties with finding content to write about.
