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.
