How I Keep Motivated With Blogging


When it comes to blogging, motivation plays a key part. You have to use it along with your creativity to produce content that you are happy with, as well as your audience. I'll admit it, I've had waves of motivation with my blog over the last few years. Life can get in the way, or you simply lose your creative spark for while. Something clicks, and you get it back. I feel more confident than ever with my blog now, and I've collected a list of ways to stay motivated which is easy to follow. If these points have helped me, I hope they can help anyone else who is struggling with blogger's block...

1. Read other blogs regularly. There's a mind blowing amount of blogs around nowadays. Reading posts everyday can help you find inspiration for future posts, but not directly copy them. As well as that, commenting on posts and complimenting other bloggers will help you feel involved and connected within the blogging community; the more the merrier!

2. As soon as an idea enters your mind, note it down! Include some detail about what you want to include in that post so you don't forget. Once it's on paper or on your phone, it's there for you to start working on.

3. Drink water. This may seem like an odd tip; but if you're healthy, you'll feel more motivated. Your brain needs water, it helps to keep your creativity levels high as your brain works better when you're hydrated.

4. Write a post you're happy with, don't just write for the sake of it. You'll never get that motivation back if you don't fully believe in yourself and your content.

5. Talk to people. Ask your followers for requests, find out what your audience would like to read. Tweet other bloggers (I have a post about blogger chats coming up soon), some of them might be feeling the same way and some might have more advice for you. You could even talk to friends and family, they might have some suggestions and advice for you as well. Once you let your thoughts out, you might feel refreshed and ready to start over without a rain cloud over your head.

6. If you find yourself stressing about your lack of motivation, just stop altogether and take a break. Give your brain a chance to relax and refresh, your followers will understand. Sometimes us bloggers get too overworked, we need to be nice to ourselves! Also, don't force yourself to think of ideas, let them come naturally.

7. Think positive and stay calm.

8. Keep in mind that inspiration can come from anywhere!

Whether you're a blogger or not, how do you keep motivated?
