When I first started blogging my inspiration came from here, there and everywhere. I had a beauty focused blog, so it was pretty easy to find makeup inspiration all over social media. Now I find it alot harder to find inspiration for my posts. I think it’s because I worry about what I post and overthink it way too much. Which I know alot of bloggers do!
For this weeks open discussion Saturday I want to know where you find your inspiration. How do you come up with blog post ideas and how do you choose what you want to share with the world? As always I’ll share where my inspiration comes from then I want to hear from you!
WHERE DOES MY BLOGGING INSPIRATION COME FROM
When I was thinking of a topic for open discussion Saturday so many different things came to mind. And then I read a comment someone left on my Instagram about how I come up with so many different blog topics and they asked me how I did it. In all honesty sometimes ideas come into my mind when I least expect it. Alot of my ideas just spring out of no where and then I end up rushing to write it down before I forget.
INSPIRATION IS ALL AROUND US
Alot of my blog inspiration comes from things around me. I often write on things that I’m going through at the time, but you’d never know it by the way I write. I keep things pretty private on my blog, but there are always little snippets of my life in my blog titles. Inspiration can be found in everyday things you do and see. Sometimes it’s as easy as an idea popping into your mind and then going from there. On occasion I use images to help inspire me. I’m quite a visual person!
If you’re going through a tough time then write about it. If you’re struggling to find some yummy meat free recipes, then create your own post helping others out. If you’re needing advice on a particular subject, write about it and ask for feedback. There are so many ways to seek inspiration from the world we live in.
I BRAINSTORM WITH FRIENDS
Alot of the really popular blog posts on my blog are the outcome of brainstorming sessions with friends. Don’t be afraid to reach out to people you know and ask for help. Alot of the time, even if you don’t like their suggestions it can really help you think of fresh ideas. Having someone else to brainstorm with is really helpful. It helps so much with needing to see or hear a different perspective.
Alot of the time when you’re trying to think of ideas you can really start overthinking and getting really inside of your own head. Talking to other people and asking them for help can prevent writers block! Which is what we want.
Now its your turn! I want to hear how you find inspiration for your blog content. Where do you find it from?
Can’t wait to hear all of your responses!
