10 Tips to Get Your Blogging Mojo Back

I like to blog. I post regularly and my brain seems to be over-run with ideas. But this hasn’t always been the case, and I’m quite sure that I’ll hit a wall again at some point in the future, so I have a few methods that help me get back on track when that happens. If this happens to you, then here are my top 10 tips to get your blogging mojo back…10 Tips to Get Your Blogging Mojo Back

1. Go back to your roots.

What did you enjoy blogging about initially? What did you want to say? When I get a little lost, I look back at my earliest posts and it puts me straight back into that frame of mind and helps me to more clearly see ideas for future posts.

2. Review something.

Do you have a favourite book, toy, product, website that you’d like to shout about? Then shout! I did this at the start of my blog on a couple of things, and one of them still gets me blog hits most days, as people are often searching for honest reviews.

3. Linkys.

There are hundreds of them around! Mooch about until you find one, two, three, however many you need, to inspire you to write and join in. I have a few regular ones that I join in with, and they really help to focus my mind on those particular topics. Equally, don’t get stuck in a rut with them – you don’t have to join in every single week or month if you’re no longer feeling it, so take a break or join in less often.

4. Go do something that you enjoy & then write about it.

A little me-time, a family trip out, browsing for new outfits, a favourite book, baking or cooking up a new recipe, whatever it may be, there’s bound to be an angle there that you can blog about.

5. Memes.

These can be fun, and there are always a fair few circulating. If you like the look of one, you needn’t wait to be invited/tagged, just join in and share. Or, start your own! Some of my favourite posts have come from doing this.

6. Stumbleupon, Pinterest, the news, magazines – all are there with potential to inspire.

A quote may strike you and get your cogs whirring, you might be fuming over something in the news or an article or photo may spin off a new thought process for you. These are my go-to places when I fancy writing something different, that I perhaps wouldn’t have come up with alone.

7. It doesn’t have to be words, a photo can tell a story.

It may be an old photo that you want to share, with or without a story, or something you took today. Have a look about, there’s bound to be tales to tell!

8. Mind map.

This works well for me. I start with a totally blank page and I get writing and scribbling ideas down. I might start with a theme, another post or category I’ve enjoyed writing about, a new item or subject, though I’ve not yet worked out how to incorporate it, they all get mapped! Let your mind wander and don’t discount something as impossible or irrational, as this is about coming up with initial ideas that can then be shaped.

9.Β Write about what you love.

Whether it be aspirational – a holiday you’d love to go on, your dream kitchen,or actual – a great day out or recent purchase, if you love it, you’ll write it.

10. Take a break.

Simple as. Don’t force yourself to do something that you’re not enjoying. If the 9 tips above can’t get you excited about blogging again, stop and return in a week or two. You should only do what makes you happy, so await that urge to blog again!

Hope these have helped? Is there a little mojo being kick-started again out there somewhere? Look forward to reading…
