Combating ‘Bloggers Block’ | Lifestyle

It’s been fairly obvious that I haven’t been my usual blogger self from the reduction in published blog posts. I would normally post once every week maybe even twice, but I too have become a victim of “bloggers block”.

Now, we could at look at this situation in both a positive and negative light. Sometimes, bloggers block is a natural way of your mind and body saying “stop! you’re working too much!”. This was the case for me as I had to stop blogging for a while due to my exams and even after my exams passed, I just couldn’t seem to get the same pleasure from blogging as I used to. In order to combat this, I have been catching up on all my favourite bloggers blog posts, reading and commenting, and believe it or not, it has really helped me to feel like I still have a voice in this blogging community.

So here are my top tips to combat bloggers block:

  1.  If you know you won’t be able to blog for a long period of time, plan and type out blog posts then have them scheduled to be posted.
  2. If you have ran out of inspiration and have no idea what to post, just carry on reading other bloggers posts and maybe a picture or a certain sentence will send you waves of inspiration!
  3. Look back at your most popular blog post and think to yourself “why did that become so popular?” or “why did I really like typing that up?”. The answer should surely spark a thought.
  4. Read magazines. A picture, a title a statement could stimulate thoughts into your mind. Maybe you don’t agree with a certain magazine post, or a statement within one. This could give you the chance to explain your thoughts about it to your readers.
  5. Look at the comments you receive on your blog posts. I always feel inspired when I read all of your lovely blog comments!
  6. If you really can’t find any inspiration, just let it be. There is no point in forcing anything that isn’t there. Carrying on with your day to day life and maybe accidentally coming across something that sparks some interest, could be the way you start writing again!

I would love to know if anyone else has experienced bloggers block and how they have combated it!

Love,

  1. This is definitely something I can relate to – and nearly every other blogger too, I’m sure! 😅 It’s so easy to fall into a rut and then feel uninspired. I really like the idea of looking back at old posts and seeing what others have enjoyed reading – sometimes just glancing back at old content can remind us of why we started blogging in the first place! And I completely agree that sometimes it’s nice to have a break and not force it – absence makes the heart grow fonder! This is a lovely post with lots of helpful tips, Bervin, so thank you for sharing! 😊

  2. This is so relatable and you definitely gave a ton of good advice. I went through something like this recently where I hadn’t posted in over a month. It was so hard to get back into the swing of things and keep the creative juices flowing. I’ll turn to this post again when I get stuck!
