We’ve all been there and even after a year and almost a half, now and again I will get writers blog. It’s one of the most frustrating things as well. Sometimes I’ll sit for a good hour, trying to think about what to write. My biggest worry, is not creating content that you would want to read. I’m no expert when it comes to this, but this is what I’ve learn’t over the past year and a bit, and hopefully it will help you too.
Burn a candle. Not only will it make the room smell nice but having a little flame in the background, can actually make you feel really calm. Listen to the rain is also a good one, I love listening to rain hit the windows. Another thing you can do is have some acoustic music or classical, playing faintly in the background. Music is one of the things that relaxes me the most, just don’t put anything with a fast beat on, as that can be distracting.
WRITE YOUR BEGINNING
I spend so much time on trying to write a good introduction when I think, just because the introduction is at the start, doesn’t mean you have to do it first. I’ve now learn’t to write my middle and my end and come back to the start, and it works really well for me now. Something as simple as that, I just wish I thought of it sooner.
A really useful tip is to get reading. I will read a lot of magazines like Vogue, for some inspiration on fashion related blog posts. The other thing I will read is blog posts. I love reading other peoples content and feeling inspired that way.
GET MORE PERSONAL
Sometimes you will get so wrapped up about writing what you think your readers want to read, that you actually forget about yourself. Write something that you want to write, it doesn’t have to be something that’s to do with your blog. In fact, by writing a more personal post, your readers will probably like it more, as they will feel that they can learn more about you a bit more.
TAKE A BREAK
I find this helps a lot. If you really feel like your not getting anywhere, take a break. Grab a snack, I usually find this works and then when you come back, your calm and you’ve had something to eat, so you’ve fed your brain. There’s no rush when it comes to blog posts, just take your time and everything will come to you naturally.
Are you ready?
