Blogging is something that is much more than a hobby to me, it’s something I’m extremely passionate about and absolutely love doing. But after a while, it’s totally normal that inspiration can start to fade.
Theres always days I’m not even *on* my laptop (sometimes the best kind of days, right?), but for the most part I have a number of certain sources I use to keep me feeling inspired to blog and share content on here for myself and any lovely people reading this!
My blog is a very personal part of me, so I use what’s happening in my life to draw on for posts. Whether that’s goals for the month or just a chat on how I’ve been feeling recently, it all goes down as something I might talk about on here. These are usually my most favourite posts to write, and I think they are my most popular too. There’s nothing quite like making yourself a cuppa and just sitting down to type what’s on your mind, it’s so therapeutic!
WHAT I’D LIKE TO READ
I often think about what I’d like to read, and that definitely comes into play when planning my blog posts. I know I love reading anything about creativity, so I try and incorporate that into my own blog schedule too, luckily it’s something I love writing about too.
Posts with simple steps or ‘how tos’ is also something I gravitate towards, so I like to have a good brainstorm as to how I can include that in my blog aswell. If I have an idea but it’s not something I’d usually read, I take a few days to think about it, and end up leaving it in the idea bank for another time.
MY FAVOURITE BLOGS
I have loads of blogs out there that I love reading, so sometimes a post can pop up that I really love and want to re-create or share my opinion on that particular topic. Luckily there’s people posting such amazing content on the web these days, inspiration is never short.
Sometimes something as simple as a tweet or a particular podcast episode I enjoyed recently can spark a blog post idea! When that happens, I usually make a note of it on my phone or write it down in my journal so I can go back to it at a later date.
I also find that when I’m immersed in something I love, painting, baking, or doing yoga, blog post ideas pop up out of nowhere into my mind. I’m not quite sure why that is, but I’ll happily take it!
Taking a step back from even thinking about blogging inspiration can work wonders. Walk your dog, chat to a friend, have a day off and you’ll come back feeling better than before, I promise!
Where do you get your blogging inspiration from?
