Blogging Inspiration

It's easy to find yourself in a bit of a blogging rut. Whether you're lacking motivation or really want to write something but have no idea what, it can be enormously frustrating. I find surrounding myself with blog inspiration (or blog-spiration as I like to call it) is the best way to pull yourself out of a tough patch.

Immerse yourself in what you love. 
Being a beauty blogger my makeup stash is a little larger than the average person would require. Whenever I'm having a blog brainstorming session I like to have a really good dig in to my drawers and have a good play around with everything. It's never failed to help me come up with at least one post idea. Plus, what beauty bloggers doesn't love a little makeup playtime?

Create a Pinterest-esque inspiration board. 
Pinterest users will know that it can be a particularly inspirational platform. Never had I ever felt the urge to redesign my entire house, cook a weeks worth of meals and run a half marathon all at once before stumbling across Pinterest. Whether you're part of the online community or not, there's no reason that you can't get involved with the whole mood board thang. A cork board jam packed with gorg. pictures is a good place to start. Heck, even copying and pasting pictures to a word document would do the job (for your own private use of course, never steal someone else's photos).

A social media perusal.
A little scroll through your Instagram/Facebook/Twitter/*insert any other social media platform here* could be all you need to pull you out of your rut. The internet is honestly choc-a-bloc with inspiration- the odd cute-baby-animal picture helps too.



  1. I find scrolling through the pretty pictures on instagram and tumblr really give me a boost when it comes to taking my own pictures. Not only does it give me ideas, it also makes me motivated to create something just as beautiful.

  2. I love this so much!
