A while back I talked about how I was afraid that I was writing and posting content that was not really original or creative. This was followed by another post where I talked about the fact that originality is almost impossible, especially if you look at all the new blogs that pop up lately. I learned to let go of the idea that I had to come up with new ideas all the time, simply because almost everything has been done before. It's the fact that YOU are writing it, that makes it unique.
The problem with that is, however, that I feel uninspired. I don't have any problems anymore with talking about topics many people have spoken about, but I simply don't feel like it. You might have noticed that I've cut down in the amount of posts. It's not only because I'm busy or the fact I still haven't found a schedule that works for me; it's more that I have no idea what I want to write about and what I want to say. Every evening I sit in front of my computer screen and I'm just blank. I end up doing a lot of things, but none of them have to do with blogging. The amount of unread posts in my Bloglovin' feed is prove of my lack of motivation.
I still love blogging and I enjoy writing, so it's frustrating that it is not working out. I'm still able to type down my reviews, but I want more on my blog (especially since those are not the most popular type of posts) The only thing I still work on with a lot of ideas is my fairytale challenge and I enjoy my monthly recaps, but for some reason my head is completely empty when it comes to other ideas. Discussion posts, yeah. I have quite some random thoughts scribbled down in my notebook, but the words does not come out the way I want and I don't feel like writing them. I am now thinking about revisiting older posts and see if I have new thoughts to add – or perhaps I have changed my mind over the course of time.
Made my first GIF.
How do you deal with feeling uninspired? Any tips for me?
