One great thing about blogging is letting your creativity run free.

You can write about anything you want, with no rules or boundaries to stifle your creative expression.

Unfortunately, we all hit a wall eventually. This is normal, and there are plenty of ways to get those juices flowing when you’re feeling tapped out.

Here are five easy ways to get inspiration:

1. Start with a picture.

Visual stimulation is a powerful way to activate the brain.

Browse the archives of free stock photo sites, such as Pexels and Pixabay, which offer captivating images that’ll spark your creativity.

Choose a photo that speaks to you or makes you feel a certain way. Note your emotions, and ask, “If I could describe the photo in one word, what would it be?”

Using that word, come up with a title for a blog post that would fit the image. If your word is “peaceful,” you could write about how to achieve inner peace even on the worst days. Play with ideas, and make sure your title complements the image you chose.

2. Use blog title generators.

Blog title generators can be a blogger’s best friend, especially if you’re pressed for time.
