Falling out of love with blogging?

I believe we all have moments when we come to a place where we feel unmotivated, not very creative, worried, comparing ourselves, giving up and the list goes on. On Twitter I see so many tweets about not feeling motivated or creative with your blogs and I personally can relate to this. Not knowing what to blog about next or comparing yourself to so many blog out there is hard work. One thing you have to remember though is to be yourself and to blog about what you want to blog about and when you feel like it. Having a schedule to post everyday will just make things worse if you struggle to know what to talk about. Realistic goals are the key, don't set yourself high ones because when you fail to meet them that will just make things worse. Set realistic ones so when you do more than what you set you will feel great about it. Your blog is your space to feel creative and proud, never compare just feel inspired to make yourself better. use other bloggers as inspiration instead of seeing them as rivals or thinking I will never be as good as them. They once started out with 0 followers, just think how far they have come with dedication and hard work. You can achieve this too even if you have a different style, schedule etc. Here are my top five tips on how to stay motivated and creative whilst running your blog.

  1. Don't compare yourself to other bloggers. Be yourself!
  2. Set yourself realistic goals such as blogging 3 times a week. If you do more that will be a bonus and you will feel great about it.
  3. Make mood boards out of magazine cut outs. Stick them above your desk or fill a note pad with ideas, drawings and images. This will help to keep you feeling inspired and keep your work space tidy! 
  4. Go on days out, take lots of photographs. visit museums and do something different. Go on a long walk and when you get back I bet you feel better about everything. 
  5. Use social media. I use Pinterest, Instagram, BlogLovin and twitter to find inspiration. Chat to other bloggers via the blog chats and read lots of blogs during the week. 
What are your top tips, I would love to hear yours!
