Hi friends! ♡
It’s been a while since I’ve made a more serious post, but I really wanted to express myself on this topic! I think that more than once in our blogging lives, we’ve probably felt exhausted, had a writing block, forced out creativity, and maybe even felt some jealousy of other’s blogs. Left and right, we’re always posting content and that can be overwhelming! Let me tell you now, that this feeling is not something to be ashamed about, it’s quite natural and should be taken as a path to grow as a writer.
Though I’m quite new to blogging, I have felt some certain pressures as to what I feel some people would want to see and if my content is even readable. I find that the more I dwell on trying to force out my creativity, the less and less I actually become. It’s a very frustrating feeling, and I didn’t even realize what I was doing until I realized that my blog doesn’t look the way I imagined it to be. Don’t get me wrong, I love everything I’ve done and I’m very proud of myself… it’s just my content isn’t where I want it to be.
Like I’ve said before, it’s perfectly and naturally okay to feel like this, and I want us to go on a beautiful, creative journey where we all grow together!
If you are a blogger out there, no matter how big or small I think it’s important to take a second and ask if you truly love your content. Ask yourself, is this really the content I want to write about? If you answer yes, well I’m very proud of you, my friend! But if you answered no, I want to share with you some tips about how to regain your inspiration.
This month, I challenge all of you to step back and get back on the path to making content for YOU! Stop worrying about numbers and focus on what you truly love.
- LEARN TO WRITE FREELY – I’m actually doing this at this very moment as I’m writing this blog post. Right now, take out your phone, journal, or computer and just start writing about anything and everything. Write about a topic you’ve always wanted to talk about, write a story, literally anything that makes you content with your content (aha see what I did there… I should stop right now.)
- GET YOUR INSPIRATION BACK- If this means taking a little break, do it. If it only means sitting down and just writing more ideas, do that too. For me, I’ve been scrolling through Pinterest, Youtube, Instagram, and other’s blogs. I like to get ideas from everything I see and turn it into something unique and special to my style.
- DROP THOSE FILTERS AND BE YOU SWEETIE- Ever seen that vine with the man that holds up all the posts that say “love yourself, express yourself?” WELL, THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT IM SAYING! Maybe you don’t resonate with your content, because it’s not really you that’s writing. Sometimes I don’t even realize that I have my filters up, and it can be really hard to take them down. But once you learn to do that, I think that that’s when your blog will become a more accurate representation of yourself and what you stand for.
These may only be three little tips, but I think it may help to get you back to what you want to do. Remember, all things take time and this most definitely will! However, I promise that the more motivated you are to change, change will happen! This is where my letter ends and I hope I, at least, helped one of you.
Please feel free to leave a comment expressing yourself on this topic, so we can all have a discussion about this! Let’s all grow and help each other!
I love you all so so so much and be on the lookout for more content soon! Bye, Bye!
