Six things to do when bloggers block hits!

Six things to do when bloggers block hitsIf you are a fellow blogger reading this post, you have probably suffered from writers block or what I like to call ‘Bloggers block’ at some point whether your blog is a hobby or your career, we have all been there. I am a big believer in not forcing it when it comes to writing blog posts, I prefer quality content over quantity – but that is just my personal preference.  Here are six things I like to do when bloggers block hits me…

1.Get inspired.
I love finding inspiration from fellow bloggers, I am always adding new blogs to my bookmarks and enjoy a good binge read before bed. Seeing people have such passion for blogging often brings me out of my slump. There are many ways to find inspiration such as, browsing Pinterest, We Heart it, Bloglovin, and the likes! There are also tons of helpful posts out there if you are looking for a new topic to blog and write about – simply google ‘blog post ideas’ there’s so many ideas out there.

2. Focus on other social media platforms.
If you aren’t feeling in the mood to blog, focus on your other social media platforms, such as Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat and Pinterest. You can update and create and share content in many different ways, not just writing a blog post. *loses 12 hours to pinning pretty things on Pinterest*

3. Tackle your email inbox.
Do some admin, reply to those emails you’ve been putting off, you’ll feel much better once you’ve done them and they are out of the way and out of your mind! You could also take this time to do some blog admin, fix some broken links, update old blog posts, be productive!

4. Switch up your space.
Try blogging in a different space to usual, like a local cafe (cake and coffee is an added bonus right?), or even just try a different room in the house! Jigging things up a little might freshen up your mind and get those creative juices flowing.

5. Jot down ideas.
I am terrible for thinking of a great blog post idea, either late at night before bed, or maybe whilst I am out and about and then completely forgetting about it, doh! What I have been doing lately is jotting ideas down in a small notebook that fits in my handbag, you could even keep a list on your phone or email yourself, whatever works best for you!

6. Step outside of your niche.
Maybe try something new, for example… if you blog about solely beauty, why not introduce a new mini series, such as recipes, a lifestyle section or add more personal posts and see the response you get. You can always do a ‘poll’ on twitter to see which one your readers would be most interested in seeing if you think this would be a little daunting!

I hope these tips help you a little, if you are suffering from bloggers block, if you have any tips you use to get you out of a rut when it comes to blogging then please leave them in the comments 🙂

    These are great tips, we all get writer’s block and changing locations actually helps me most, I’m always feeling the most creative at cafés and Starbucks. xx

    When I’m feeling blogger’s block, I like stepping away from the blog, hang out with friends, and have good conversation 🙂

    Bloggers Block definitely happens to us all! I think pinterest is such a good source of inspiration x

    Doing a Twitter poll is such a good idea – I’ve never done one before! I also find scrolling through my own blog archive helps me come up with new ideas as well as getting inspiration from others xx

    I find that taking photos of beautiful things and thinking of how I can share this with my readers really inspires me. You take such beautiful photos that I’m guessing you feel the same, and I agree that reading other blogs can give you inspiration and ideas for how you can add some narrative to the photos to put it in a post. Thank you for the tips, Becky! Angharad x

    Loved this! I’ve currently got 3 months off for Summer before I start uni and I’ve been looking forward to summer all year just for the fact that I could blog every day! Reality is I have no motivation and just don’t know what to post! What has helped me a little is making a spreadsheet on my computer of all the days I want to post and blog posts ideas for that day! Then I feel like I have a clear structure to follow and I can also do various posts in advance if I’m in the blogging mood!

    Jotting down ideas the minute they hit you has been a life saver for me! I always used to forget them but now when I just write them down right away I’ll always have them with me 🙂 I also love Pinterest when I’m feeling a bit uninspired! xx

    These are all such great tips! I find so much inspiration from other blogs!
