Hello everyone! It’s Wednesday which means… well I guess you all know by now what that means πŸ˜‰ : I’m going to give some advice! Today I wanted to write something about what to do when you have a writer’s block, or a blogging block I must say. Especially those of us who try to post frequently might be familiar with this. After my research and thinking about my own ways to cope with this I came up with the following 6 tips:

1. Step away from your computer for a bit. This one was very hard for me to understand at first but after being forced to do so I found out that it’s actually true. A computer is just a screen we stare into but there’s so much more to see on planet earth if you look around you a little bit from time to time. I made a rule where I don’t allow myself to get on my computer in the weekends and I always start Monday with so many fun ideas!

2. Analyze your Google Analytics. I’ve said it before but this one helps for many different things. When I’m stuck and don’t know what I want to write about I go to Google Analytics and go through the list of most visited posts to see which ones you all liked the best. Even when just going through that list I always get new ideas for some reason.

3. Pinterest, pinterest. If you type ‘blogpost ideas’ in the search bar on Pinterest you will get an endless list of ideas, images anything inspirational related to write about. Inspiration guaranteed.

4. Try to think in series rather than in just one post. I try to come up with a new ‘series’ every three months to get a bit of a structure into my blogging schedule. It takes a lot of time to think of a completely new concept everyday so it’s nice to do series like ‘Wardrobe Wednesday’, ‘Travel Tuesday’ Friday Questions’ or anything you like.

5. Dig into the old. Sometimes us digital creators seem to forget how much content we actually make so it really doesn’t hurt to reuse some favorite posts and upload them again. I’m doing this on Tuesday in August for instance. I call it lost and found and repost my favorite fashion looks of this year. There may be new visitors who didn’t follow you at the time of some posts and usually people don’t mind to see good content twice.

6. Ask your readers! Very simple, just use Twitter, your blog, Instagram, Facebook to ask your readers what they would like to read next. I’ve done this a couple of times and you guys gave me SO many ideas!

Hope this helped and of course if there’s anything you want to know leave me a comment and I will help you out if I can! Big kiss, N.

  • That’s so helpful! I just was in this bloggers-block period and I needed some inspiration for new posts. But since I just started and don’t have much followers it’s quite difficult to continue doing it and to get advice from your readers. But now it’s much better and I will do some of the things you pointed out in this post πŸ™‚

  • These types of posts always come in handy. I’ve always been afraid to re upload a post, but it’s a very good idea. Also I think I may have to start stepping away from my computer on weekends too!

  • These are great tips! I love the idea of checking out your Analytics for a hot sec to remember what really works (and what doesn’t) for your page. And series always work wonders! I felt myself hitting a slump as the summer neared its end, so I decided to kickstart a new series about back-to-college life. Now, I’m in full college mode…things I would’ve told my freshmen self, 3 minute makeup routines for when you’re waaaay late, the works! Piece of cake.

  • I post daily, so for me, this was very helpful. It always helps me to stop thinking that a blogpost needs to have it all: dozens of photos, the right text with a proper start and ending… no, sometimes a simple photo and a couple of lines are already enough to inspire people without getting boring!

  • It’s such an great idea to post about this topic. For beginners it’s always so helpful to read such threads. Thank you a lot.
