If anyone ever says blogging is easy, they’re lying. Sometimes one of the hardest parts of blogging is staying inspired to create new content week after week. That’s why I thought I’d share some of the things that help me. I’m not saying this will cure your writers block, but this is what helps me and if I find that none of these help, then I take a break, as sometimes thats all you need.
This is Four Tips to Help You Stay Inspired With Blogging!
Have a Scroll on Pinterest
Not even a scroll, you can search for pretty much anything. I don’t know about your homepage, but mine is full of inspiring images. Whether it be outfits, recipes or blog posts. If you’re ever struggling it’s really worth having a look on Pinterest, as you never know what you’ll find that’ll get your inspiration flowing.
Shop Your Stash
Sometimes when I’m struggling for an idea for a post, I look through the makeup that I own and I’m instantly inspired with ideas. As a makeup blogger it can be hard to not get sucked into the mindset of needing to get all of the new products to stay up to date, but as there are so many new releases now it’s impossible to keep up. Review that highlighter you love, or share a selection of your favourite palettes.
Read Other Blogs
I mentioned this in my post about ‘How I Fell Back in Love Wit Blogging’, as this is what helps me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that it’s ok to copy (as it definitely isn’t) but you can put your own twists on things. For example I saw a lot of people doing monthly to-do lists and as someone who likes to make lists, I decided to make my own.
Don’t Over Complicate It
It’s your blog and you can write whatever you want and that’s the beauty of having a blog. I got into the mindset a few years ago of having to blog about certain things that suited the niche I was in, but that’s not entirely true. You can blog about whatever you want to, some examples are: what music you’re into it at the minute, or do a weekly roundup of what you’ve been up. The possibilities are endless.
There we have it! Those are some things to help me stay inspired to blog. Like I said at the beginning if nothing seems to help, then take a break, sometimes some time away is all you need.
