Overcoming Blogger’s Block
Because I legitimately have blogger’s block right now…
Keep a Notebook of Ideas
I always have a post idea sheet going around, whether it’s on Evernote or in my life notebook. The best post ideas come to me when I’m at work – you know the least convenient time to be inspired! If you’re constantly jotting down ideas you’ll have a full list in no time.
Look Around You
I like to blog from bed. It’s a fun, relaxing event that is a perfect way to end the day. So sometimes when I can’t think of what to write about, I look around my room and see what I’ve had out lately. Whether it’s my new DIY floral arrangement (coming soon!), my latest haul of work clothes, or a new beauty product I just picked up, great topics are normally found where you spend the most time. Another great resource is your iPhone Photos! Sometimes I use them to jog my memory of inspirational things I found or recent activities that needed to be blogged about.
Get on Pinterest
The most inspirational and creative place on Earth! That’s what I call it anyways. In just 5 minutes and a few swipes, you can find a post idea on anything from DIY to a new outfit to a quote that inspires a heartfelt post. But make sure you’re not copying anyone else’s post! You want to stay unique and always give credit where credit is due. (Follow me on Pinterest for inspiration!)
Use a Blog Topic Generator
When worst comes to worst, you’re out of creative ideas, and you have no energy – use a topic generator. You’ll probably say no to the first 3 topics, but then you’ll realize you have to settle for something, right? There are actually some good ideas on HubSpot’s generator because you choose your topics! It’s worth a shot.
Don’t Blog, Worry About it Tomorrow
If you’re just not feeling it, you might produce a post you’re not happy about. Take a break from posting and start fresh tomorrow. You never know what awesome story need to be told or where you might find some inspiration. Don’t throw out content just to post!
