You sit down to write a new food blog, fingers poised over the keyboard as you await some divine culinary inspiration — and yet, none comes. We’ve all been there.
A bad case of blogger’s block can tempt you to just give up and drown your frustrations in that rogue bottle of chocolate syrup stashed in the pantry. That’s not a road you necessarily want to go down (OK, maybe a little), but coming up with fresh content spur of the moment is enough to drive anyone to the brink of sugar-bingeing.
So, what’s a food blogger to do?
Well, evergreen content is here to save the day. With a little legwork now, you can map out content for months ahead of time — and evergreen ideas make dealing with blogger’s block days a total breeze.
