There are times wherein you can’t write a single post because of the following factors like being loaded with activities of daily living, other duties or responsibilities to fulfill, running out of ideas etc. But what can you actually do if these happened to avoid losing track of blogging or to avoid losing the enthusiasm of connecting in your blogging community?
Here are helpful tips that you can consider as a blogger or content creator, in whatever niche you have, to keep you connected with blogging!
- You have to make a blog post plan. Why? Simply because if there is a scheduled activity that was written in whatever scheduler that you have, it could motivate or encourage you to do that certain activity. For example, (this topic should be done by this day and will publish this day). Come up with a schedule that is very comfortable to you and will not interrupt some of your daily activities. Example, once a week or once in every three or four days. Set your schedule, just avoid longer gaps of up to a month or months before you write your next blog post to avoid putting yourself to uncomfortable feeling in writing.
- Check your page daily for updates, you can do it AM (morning) or PM (afternoon) or whatever time of the day that is best for you. Why do you need to check it? Because maybe there are comments to your previous posts which you don’t respond yet. You can also check who liked your post, and maybe you can spend time visiting their pages too. You can also like their blog posts or comment to it as well. This way you can start interacting and knowing what’s their up too. You can also update your older blog posts. There are many things that was already happened in the past, that’s why it’s a good idea to update older posts to freshen it up.
- Look for inspiration, there are times that you feel inspired, and there are days that you won’t feel like writing anything. Consider going to a place where you feel relaxed, inspired and happy. This place doesn’t need to be far, in fact, an area in your house can do. Your room, your home desk, living room or in your garden. Make sure that the area you choose is a noise free area, and the environment is calming in order for your mind to create something. If you can manage, you can go to a nearer park or places where you can see people or nature that can give you an idea of what to write in a certain topic.
- Don’t stress yourself, if you are stressed because you can’t write anything, the tendency is that you will only make it worst. So, no need to deal with it as if you feel like you are unable. Just enjoy and make it a fun journey instead! Everything follows if you were able to just enjoy it. For the meantime, gather your thoughts in a notebook, be it words or sentences, and focus on it. Soon you will be able to write something about it.
So, these are the ways on how to keep you connected with blogging. Always remember to write with a purpose, do it not just to expand your skills but to write for someone out there who needs and could benefit from your content!
