A blogger’s brain should never slumber. If you are going to be prolific in creating lots of posts on a regular basis, you need to fine-tune your brain into blogging mode.
It is a sad fact that my brain is permanently locked into blogging mode. Good job too, as when I was presented with a request to include this graphic in a post on my blog, I had to crank up my poor brain to make it relevant.

This is excellent, and I love the moving bits.
Basically, if a blogger is kind to their brain, feeds it, exercises it, stimulates it and provides it with enough rest, it will respond favourably and give you some good posts. But a brain also needs training, and that can be done through hard work, continuous graft and lots of practise. Don’t shy away from writing, and if you’re stuck for ideas, get out and stimulate your brain by showing it something else rather than your computer screen.
Being in blogging mode means that whatever you see, hear or experience will probably spark off a potential post. My brain now needs help from notebooks to jot down any wonderful ideas that pop into my head, as it is beginning to get more difficult to retain superb post fodder until the time I can process it.
The bit about IQ is interesting. When I last tested myself via an IQ TV show, the result was only 113. But is IQ hereditary? I have managed to produce children who are exceptionally intelligent (my son’s IQ is 162, he got 5 A*s in his A-levels and is going to Cambridge to study Maths), whereas I can hardly add up 2+2, so goodness knows where that came from!
Exercise and nutrition do have an effect. Recently I’ve been on a strict diet and a vigorous training regime. Losing excess flubber has freed up my brain and I’m sure my reflexes have improved. My daily schedule is more focused and not stopping every five minutes to raid the fridge has certainly provided me with more concentrated time on my blog. This is poignant because come the autumn things will be moving on very fast here.
Over the past two years my poor brain has been forced to learn new things. I have just finished a Diploma in Digital Marketing, and my recent learning journey has culminated in tonnes of new ideas, invigorating concepts and stimulating schedules. I have learned to analyse many phenomena facets and gain new blogging knowledge to keep up to date with this ever-moving technology.
And I’m not stopping now that I’m on a roll… If you want to be part of this wonderful new blogging bonanza, then sign up to my newsletter (just under the big purple envelope in the sidebar) to become part of my special community and be the first in the know all the wonderful things I’ll be doing in the future!
