It's common for bloggers to lack in inspiration. Sometimes, it seems like there is nothing left for me to write about. When I find myself going through a period like this I like to follow these simple steps and soon I am bursting with ideas.
Here are my top tips for beating blogger's block and staying organized.
This tip is so important to me. When I'm not organised I stress out and lose sight of my goal. I keep a journal where I plan my posts for the next few months. I don't necessarily write out my post until a week or two before it goes up but I do make sure I have a plan.
Have a Blogging Day
Every two weeks, or so, I dedicate a whole day to my blog. In the morning, while the lighting is good, I take all the pictures that I will need for the upcoming weeks' posts. In the afternoon I write, write, write. I prepare four or five posts so that I don't have to worry about being busy and not being able to write something.
Jot Ideas Down
Most of the time, my ideas for blogposts come to me right before I fall asleep. I usually have to get up and scribble down my idea because if I don't I wont remember it! This is why I keep a small, pocket-sized notebook at my bed-side and in my handbag at all times. Often, ideas come to me at the strangest of times!
Each time I reach a milestone on my blog I reward myself with a little treat. If you are being rewarded by your blog it will motivate you to work more. Acknowledging your own successes makes you feel good about yourself and you'll only want to better yourself. Having said this, don't focus too much on the numbers because if you're not achieving what you hoped, it will only make you feel worse.
Have a Journal
My black and gold journal holds everything regarding my blog. I document monthly stats, write lists of blog post ideas and plan out future posts. In my opinion, a journal is a must-have for bloggers. Having everything written out in one place makes everything seem so much clearer. If I ever lost it I don't know what I'd do!
Those are my tips for Blog Organisation. I hope they helped!
