Writers Block? Lack of Blogging Motivation?
I have been blogging solidly for for past couple months, however, it's something that I have done 'on and off' for a long time. I feel like I am finally at the stage where I am enjoying it and really motivated to write. I've always liked writing, but I'd find that my motivation would waver, especially if I am stressed or not feeling so cheerful in my personal life. However, now I feel that if I am down or angry, I will write... If I am stressed, I will write. It seems to be something that chills me out and is an enjoyable past time. Saying this, I can still have odd days where my mind is just blank. The difference is that I
how several ways to try and get my mind back active again, so I thought I'd share what motivates me to write. now
I love Instagram. I have since the day I got it! It combines my love of photography and nosiness into one. It is also great for inspiration. Obviously I am talking about blog inspiration, but it's great for all kinds, fitness, healthy eating, makeup, sports, tattoos,
etc. All the 'big' bloggers have Instagram, it's a great way to reach out to different people and 'promote' your blog. When I'm feeling a little uninspired, I head straight to my , etc bloggers Instagram or search some hashtags like ' favourite , 'beauty blogs' and 'beauty bloggers' to find new pages to read. bbloggers'
Some of my
Instagrams to head to for blogging favourite are: '@hellooctoberxo', '@livpurvis', '@icovetthee', '@thesundaygirluk' and '@buynowbloglater'. inspo
Read, Read, Read
My biggest motivation to write definitely comes from reading other peoples blogs.
' is great for this, obviously you can follow blogs that you love to read using it, but it also introduces you to loads of new blogs and writers. There have been numerous times where I have got inspiration from other peoples posts, now I do not mean copying. But getting a few tips or ideas, maybe even just a topic Bloglovin totally fine. I know I sure as hell wouldn't be offended if I inspired someone else. is
Step Away From The Computer
This one is probably the one I'm not very good at doing. My day job requires me staring at a computer screen all day, then I blog in the evening. Sometimes, when I am completely frazzled and can no longer think of words, it's best to just shut off the computer and chill out. There is no point in writing a post for the sake of it, it will be obvious you rushed it and neither you or the people reading are going to be crazy excited about it. Things like going for a walk, watching a film, nosing around the shops can spur on random post ideas that you would of never thought if you were still staring at the computer screen.
This is a pretty obvious one, but just googling 'beauty blog post ideas' or whatever it is that you need inspiration for. It often brings up lists and lists of different post titles and topic you could write. I've done this loads of times and have actually compiled my own lists to save time googling!
Hope these helped! Leave your ideas below if you have any :)
