It’s totally normal to feel this ways, it happens to a lot of us, but it’s just temporary and the important thing is to remember not to give up.


Follow our tips to overcome this kind of dark moments:

READ YOUR ARCHIVES AND OTHER PEOPLE’S BLOGS

No, I’m not telling you to copy other bloggers’ articles, but why not take inspiration from them to start your own post? There’s nothing bad about it as long as you let them know and mention them in your post.

You could also review your archives and old posts, you could rewrite one of them or deepen a certain aspect.

CHANGE PROSPECTIVE AND ENVIRONMENT

If you’re stuck and don’t know what to write about and how, try changing prospective and environment.

Sometimes writing from another point of view will totally change the article an make it unique and original; try going out to a friend’s house or to a coffee shop and blog there, in this way you’ll feel a fresher, new, exciting vibe around you.

    Thanks for sharing this advice. I felt like I was going through a bad funk and I didn’t know what to do. I hate when I go through a funk because I get stuck in it for to long and cant get out. I will remember this for next time.

    It’s great that you’ve included a tip about getting inspiration from your daily life. I always say that I’m inspired from watching some of my favourite TV shows such as Sherlock and Utopia. My favourite music can also help, too.

    I also think current affairs can inspire you, too. I often get ideas for my Friday Article posts from the latest political news, and the latest music releases are essential to my Musical Discovery series.

    As for looking through archived posts, I don’t think I like that idea too much, haha. ‘The Life of a Thinker’ in 2012 was very, very embarrassing… *facepalm*

    I shall be keeping this handy in case I need it in the future – thanks!

        I completely agree. It ties in to your point about perspective, too. Rather than dismiss something from daily life, think about it differently and you may just have a new blog post idea.
