Your writing a blog and coasting along nicely and all of a sudden Bam! a lack of inspiration, enthusiasm and motivation hits you all at once. Yep, I'm talking about losing your blogging mojo. I know its something that happens to a lot of bloggers if not all at some stage and I think its perfectly natural. Though, I've blogged over the past few weeks, I'll admit its been a struggle. I have so many ideas going through my head and just had no idea where to start. Blogging is a hobby for me and still something I really enjoy. These last few days, I've felt really inspired and positive about blogging again and thought I'd share a few tips that have helped.
1. Its ok to take a break!
I think sometimes its better to take some time off then trying to plod through it (note to self - remember this!) and not feel 100% happy with the posts your writing. Obviously, its more difficult if blogging is your full time job but sometimes having a break and going out enjoying life can inspire you again.
Whilst I have a notebook for blogging, I haven't really been using it but I've decided to start writing down all my ideas for blog posts and products that I want to write about. I've also made a 'blogging review drawer' in my helmer so I know which products I need to try etc. Its straightforward but it makes it so much easier to focus on.
3. Areas of Inspiration
If you're struggling for inspiration, looking for ideas can help. I really like pinterest, asking family and friends, even talking to other bloggers can really help.
4. Thinking outside the box!
Even though my blog is primarily beauty, I like to post about other things now and again. If you're stuck for ideas, why not post about other hobbies you have, things you like, blog about a day out/holiday, a food/recipe post..the possibilities are endless!
These are just a few things that's helped give me a push!
I would love to know if you have any tips for overcoming writers block!
