Don’t forget to channel your inner creative when you’re writing posts. We know creating daily (or even weekly) posts can feel overwhelming at times. In the US, three-fourths of people don’t feel like they’re living up to their creative potential. But we don’t want you to feel that way! There are some simple things you can do to provide yourself with creative inspiration and keep yourself motivated.
- Actively look for inspiration in your life. Open yourself up to new experiences and don’t be afraid to look at things in a new way. Search for experiences you can incorporate into your site. If you’re a food blogger, attend a cooking class. If you’re a design blogger, hit up your local Pier 1 and see what new decorations they have.
- Never stop learning! There’s always something new to be learned in the world of online publishing. Things are changing all the time so you should stay up-to-date on what’s going on in your industry. For industry updates, subscribe to our weekly email list. We’ll keep you informed on trends in the blogging world and let you know when we launch new educational materials.
- Recycle content from your most popular posts. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel every time you write a post. Look back at your most successful posts and add onto them. If you had multiple comments asking questions about the same thing, write a post to answer those questions.
- One of the best ways to get inspired is to attend a blog conference! You’ll have an opportunity to meet new publishers, receive awesome education, and connect with brands. We understand attending a conference is an incredible experience for bloggers and publishers. That’s why we host the annual Build Your Blog Conference in Salt Lake City! It’s been called the “conference with the most actual education.” If you’re looking for education and inspiration, this is the conference for you!
- Lastly (and possibly most importantly!) don’t compare yourself to others! It’s really hard to not get caught up in comparing followers, revenue, pageviews, and everything else. Just remember that you started your website for a reason! Whatever that reason is, hold onto it and think about it often. It’s great to experiment and tweak things to make your content better, but don’t let yourself lose sight of your goals.
