5 Tips for when you feel you’ve lost your blogging Mojo!

Losing your blogging mojo is a common occurrence for most of us, it’s something that happens to us all at the best of time.

We all have those moments where we have nothing to write about, all those thoughts that we had during the day are just gone by the time your days are done, and you sit down to type.

What can we do when we feel this gap in our blogging brain, panic, cry, feel our blogging days are done….. Ok, now you can take a deep breath. It will be ok the creative juices will start flowing. His my 5 top tips for what I do when I’m haveing a brain fart.

  • Think about taking a break:

Occasionally we, as parents take on too much. The kids, the house the blog. It’s easy to start drowning in to-do lists when there’s so much going on. Sometimes when all else fails, it makes sense to take a step back and re-evaluate.

Bloggers put so much pressure on themselves (I included) to keep putting out great content on a regular basis as well as keeping up with all other aspects of our lives. A break can often be the best thing for your blog. Your readers will be there for when you chose to return.

  • Draw inspiration from other bloggers:

No, I’m not saying copy, drawing inspiration is something entirely different.

Look at what other’s are doing and maybe see if you could put a different spin on the subject. In the family niche of blogging original content is a bit of a rarity so don’t feel you are cheating by going down this route. Obvious I am not encouraging plagiarism you would need to put the post in your words.

  • Look at what is going on around you:

Have you had any great days out with the kids, or seen something in the news that has tickled you or made you mad. Use these things to write, days out and in particular, baby milestones are often very popular posts. If you haven’t done anything with the little ones recently maybe have a think about something fun you can do as a family which can eventually be turned into blogging gold.

  • Think about mixing it up:

If you always write the same sort of posts in the same style, then maybe it’s time to shake things up a little. Why don’t you try something new, perhaps a more visual post of your favourite pics or an open letter?

  • Seasonal Posts:

People love reading seasonal posts. Creative posts always go down a treat whether it’s how to make an Easter bonnet to Christmas cards with the kids. There’s so much you can do throughout the year.

 

So to summarise if you’re feeling a bit anxious about what to post then the biggest tip I can give is just don’t panic! It’s will all work out in the end. I tend to keep a notebook on me so that when I have ideas I can quickly jot them down before they disappear out of my head.

It’s will all work out in the end.

What do you do when you feel you’re losing your blogging mojo?

    Great tips! I thought once I’d finished for maternity leave there’d be no stopping me but I’m struggling to just sit and write! Looking forward to a break over Christmas xx

      Sometimes you just need to take a step back. I started blogging when my eldest was 3 months but it was more of a hobby and really sporadic.He was quite poorly and I took some time off, thou I think I had like 1 reader then so it was ok haha

    I’m also taking a break, I think we should all down tools and take some time for ourselves 🙂

    I can only agree! It also happens to me that I have no inspiration at all, but sometimes I will have an idea, sit down and write a post in a few minutes… I try not to put lots of pressure on me. Now I know that I cannot force things and if I struggle writing down something I just shut down my PC and continue later 🙂 #KCACOLS

    I’ve had lots of ideas in the run up to Christmas but very little time – conversely I have no idea what to write in the New Year!!

      I’ve taken a break over the Christmas period in fact this is the first time since the 23rd that I’ve logged into my blog. It’s been really nice to have some time out.

    If I’m struggling to write I always take a bit of a break. Leave it for a few days then try to write. If that doesn’t work I just write what’s in my head. Get all the rubbish out and the post ideas will come again #kcacols
