I’m absolutely terrible at feeling guilty for going a few weeks without posting anything on my blog, which if you think about is ridiculous because its my blog and I can do what I want to do. If I don’t post it’s usually because I’ve lost motivation or inspiration on what to actually write. This usually happens a few times a year and it especially happened to me once I had completed blogmas.
I have started doing a little bit of research about how to gain motivation and inspiration for blog posts and I thought I’d share with you some of the ideas I came across. Doing most of these actually gave me so much inspiration that I now have weeks worth of blog posts scheduled.
WRITE A LIST OF IDEAS – write down any ideas you have for blog posts to start off with and see if you can expand into other areas on all the idea’s you have.
READ A BOOK – reading takes me into another world sometimes that it gives me all these new thoughts and random ideas. If you love the book so much you can also do a review.
RUN A POLL – if you’re unsure on what to do next, run a poll on twitter or Instagram and find out what your readers would like to see from you.
READ/SUPPORT OTHER BLOGS – reading other blogs always inspires me and gives me fresh new ideas. I don’t mean by copying everything someone has done, but if you’ve seen someones written about a topic you’re passionate about, you could too. You can also do a post talking about your favourite blogs.
SCROLL THROUGH PINTEREST – Pinterest is amazing for absolutely anything! Anything fun, creative, fashion, beauty and even lists of blog posts ideas. Just type the things you’re into and I’m sure you’ll come up with something.
GO ON A WALK/ADVENTURE – whether its going somewhere fun or somewhere quiet for a long relaxing, clearing your head might help you with inspiration.
DON’T STRESS, JUST RELAX – stressing about putting posts up normally ends up in rushed posts and rubbish pictures and they’re not very creative or readable.. Well thats in my case. I find just relaxing and not thinking about it much usually ends in me finding new ideas.
Do you have an ideas on how you gain more inspiration for your blog? I hope I’ve managed to help someone who’s struggling lately. Just remember.. don’t stress, relax and it will all come to you naturally.
