I think after a while of blogging you may stumble and find yourself struggling with ideas to write about and have no motivation. One of the reasons in my personal experience as a blogger when I struggle is with finding my mojo, which made me feel so demotivated. Every now again I just lose motivation and all interest to simply just write.
So, in this post, I am going to explore ways to overcome the feeling of demotivation and how to motivate yourself to get that sparkle back to continue to write. I hope then this will be useful for when you need to co
This may not be for everyone but having a routine can be helpful for some. I find having time set aside each day to do all blogging stuff really helpful. If I do it every day have that time set aside then it can create a positive habit to get into the mood and know that at that time is when I am going to do blogging. I like order and structure, I find forcing myself sometimes can trigger a response to get sh*t done.
Go out in public.
Sometimes, there are just too many distractions at home when you are trying to find time to do some content writing. I find that staying at home can lead me to not do a lot and spend far too much looking at memes rather than blogging. That is why my next suggestion is to go outdoors in public, whether it be in the park on a sunny day or a coffee somewhere. You can take your electronics, pen, and pad and do the work away from home. Being in public there are fewer distractions. If your in a popular place where there are others working then that can motivate you to take action and do some work.
Take a blogging break.
I have written previously a blog post about the importance to have a break and not quit. I do think blogging breaks can be really beneficial if you are struggling to get motivated. It allows you to have that break and reconnect with creativity.
Read other blogs/articles etc.
I find the idea of reading blogs, articles, newspapers etc a great way to explore topics that you find interesting and can really inspire or make you come with other ideas to write about. Knowlege is power and it is a brilliant technique to come up with new ideas.
I love mindmapping where you use colour and visuals to create ideas that connect to the main theme in the centre of the map. I find colouring and doing something therapeutic with my hands instead of hitting the laptop first can inspire me greatly. Just focusing on a theme such as relationships and exploring the subgroups that are associated with relationships such as sexual/personal/ work/ business/school. Then exploring deeper into the sub-categories to come up with further related issues can pull together ideas that can be brilliant content for your blog.
Just go out and live.
Most of the best ideas come from the experience of my life and what I have personally done, seen or heard. There are many different angles you can write a blog post on from your own experience whether that be a rant, a letter to someone who has touched you or even a review that you want to tell the world about what product or service that has been beneficial in your life.
I hope this has been useful to learn how to be better at getting that motivation back when you lose that get up and go.
