How To Keep Motivated To Blog!

Hey Cats,

You start the day with the best intentions but somehow you find yourself procastrinating and then zap your motivation is just gone, Before you know it one day has rolled into another and you think how am I going to get my motivation back. I always get this song stuck in my head when I feel like my motivation is lacking.



My tips for keeping that motivation flowing is make sure you have some tools to encourage your creativity so on a down day you can dip into them and your blog won't suffer.

Keep a notebook and take it everywhere with you to jot down and brainstorm ideas. I like to step away from the screen with some colourful pens to lift my mood and think of some new ideas. I am currently using a big study notebook which I am adapting into a bullet journal to plan lots of awesome content. More about bullet journals to come on the blog but I also like to keep a mini pad in my handbag for quick ideas on the go. You don't need a fancy notebook you can so just as good a job with a pen and paper.

One of the best things about blogging is there is so much variation and different bloggers that you can read so much amazing content. I find by joining blogger groups and reading other blogs I get really excited seeing other people share great content that my ideas start flooding back. Be careful not to compare your own blog to others and stay true to what you know because it really shows when you write about things you genuinely love.


While you're out there reading other blogs you can find other like minded bloggers to join forces for challenges. Challenges range from simple tag posts where your reader can get to know more about you,to fashion ideas that will push you out of your comfort zones. Just like the Alternative curves challenges I loved being a part of. This is also a great way to find new readers and introduce your readers to some other awesome bloggers. 


Don't just settle for reading other blogs get to events and meet other bloggers too. I have been blessed to meet some amazing ladies who are now my dearest friends and you can always blog about the fun you have on your meet ups. We all love a good tale from the dressing room and what you had for dinner...humans are nosey and that's why blogs and magazines are so damn popular.



Ultimately though at the end of the day if you're struggling take a break a breather can be important and your loyal readers may miss you but I promise you they will stick around! Then when you get your mojo back schedule posts into your drafts for those next rainy days.

  7. You're absolutely right dear. :) Great post!!! I've had several breaks. Before Christmas I didn't write my blog for a month, but now it has started picking itself up again. Earlier I was being so hard on myself and beat myself up if I didn't post often enough, but then after a quite frustrating time where I just wanted to give up the whole blog, I told myself that I'm doing this blog for me and no one else so that is what I've kept to the last year or so. :)

  14. Lovely tips! I couldn't manage blogging if I didn't write down EVERYTHING. I use the calendar on my macbook/phone and the notes and reminders apps plus an actual notebook! x

  15. I love listing my to do list and seeing them marked as done gives an unmeasurable feeling. I guess you just need to find your own effective way of staying motivated like a song or a cup of drink or simply a note of reminder.
