How To Keep Motivated With Blogging – Several years ago, blogging wasn’t considered as anything special, it was a hobby that attracted people to write about their lives, share their opinions and generally considered it as a little ‘escape’ from the real world.
Fast forward to 2015 and there’s millions of blogs out there with many people making a living out of what was essentially considered to be a hobby BUT it’s not as easy as it might seem as you constantly have to think of new topics and keep things fresh and fun for your readers so in this post, I’m sharing some tips on how to keep motivated with blogging.
How To Keep Motivated With Blogging – Topics
This depends on what you want to cover on your blog!
Sprinkles of Style originally started as a beauty blog, I wanted to share my opinion on different beauty products, feature the latest product launches and share make-up tips…..BUT after some of you lovely readers started asking for fashion posts, I jumped at the chance and after sharing one outfit post….things kinds just snowballed! 🙂
I now write about fashion which is my main topic, followed by beauty and because I love interior decoration and cake recipes – throw in a little bit of lifestyle too! 🙂
I personally think that you can write about anything that you want, you just have to find a balance between them all and ensure that your content is key for your readers!
How To Keep Motivated With Blogging – Bloggers Block
So, this is one of the worst things that can happen to you as a blogger – bloggers block!
When you blog full-time, your mind tends to work overtime as you always need to think about content and making sure it’s exciting, fresh and fun for your readers however there are many occasions when you can’t translate the thoughts in your head into a post.
The best thing that you can do is take a break – just go and make yourself a cup of coffee, browse online at other blogs or go out with your friends and family – by the time you get home or sit down at your desk again you should feel a lot better.
It’s all about finding the balance between blogging and taking time out for yourself – the key is to not overwork and enjoy yourself too! 🙂
How To Keep Motivated With Blogging – Your Office / Workspace
Another thing that helps me stay motivated with blogging is my office / workspace – keep your office/desk/workspace neat, clean and organized!
Think about it, when your desk / workspace is neat, tidy, clean and organised then your thoughts tend to be a lot clearer too. When your desk / workspace is a mess or cluttered then this can easily affect your thoughts making you feel muddled.
By adding a few colourful flowers, candles and even having a motivation board can boost your spirit and mood when it comes to blogging! 🙂
So, there we have some tips and tricks on how to keep motivated with blogging and as always I love reading through your comments so if you have any other advice or tips feel free to share them in the comments below! 🙂
