When writers block hits

You have all been there no doubt when you have so much passion to write but the words you want to write just don’t flow like they usually do.

I said in the last post that I was scared I was losing my mojo….wth all the disruption we’ve all had going on sometimes it’s hard to focus and have the motivation.

I am slowly getting back to it… and these are some things that are helping me get there.

1. Start with writing out all the answers to these questions…there are plenty of these on Pinterest

2. Think of all the topics you like writing about and put them in a spidergram and then add the legs of the spider with post ideas. It doesn’t have to be a rushed thing but it definitely helps

3. Read recent articles and other blogs for inspiration but never steal someone else’s hard work. You’re just there to get topic ideas that’s it.

I hope if you are ever stuck you could take one of these tips and use them.

Stay safe all

Much love 😘

Where to find other bloggers

When you first start blogging it can almost feel alien to you. As you feel quite lonely, because maybe your friends don’t get the whole blogging thing. Let me tell you there’s plenty that do.

Don’t know where to look for them?

Here’s where I found some of mine and how you can find yours and be friends for life.

❤️ Pinterest
❤️ Instagram
❤️ Twitter chats
❤️ Using hashtags on social media
❤️ Groups on Facebook
❤️ Follow other blogs
❤️ Comment on other blogs

You need to try spark up a conversation, be brave and be the one to break the ice.

If someone is asking for help with their blog and you know the answer. Reach out and offer an olive branch.

When you have built up a little bit of a bond feature them on your blog or social media to show you really value their friendship. Also do a shout out or follow Friday and tell everyone why they should follow such an awesome individual.

If they take the time to read your blog and comment then you should in return do the same. Get into the habit of reading blogs every night.
If you live near a certain blogger suggest meeting up at an event near you. If you live in bigger cities you’ll more than likely get event invites.

Ask to join a Pinterest group which helps promote your post and make sure you participate.

Share on your Instagram stories some of your bloggers feed photos or quotes that you like. I’ll help others find them too.
Make yourself available to your blogger friends if they should ever need you and you’ll be a friend they’ll never want to lose.

10 great ways to start your day

Don’t be a miserable cow

I have came across a fair few miserable cows in my lifetime and I’ve of course been one.

There are some things that get you in a foul mood and everything else just irritates the hell out of you.

But there’s no reason to bite everyone’s head off that comes into contact with you.

So do what i do / did this morning as i woke up on the wrong side of the bed…technically it was the right side as the beds pushed against the wall

  • Have your favourite thing for breakfast – mine was a cheesy crumpet and a hot choc…i know, i’m weird.
  • Put on a playlist that will have you singing from the time the music starts…sing loud and proud until the neighbours complain or your windows break.
  • Put the thing that’s made you angry on a piece of paper and then rip it up and bin it. Works a treat i’m telling you.
  • Get your laughing gear working…call a friend who makes you laugh or arrange to meet up. I always say laughter is the best medicine.
i am going to look for that 70s show now see if i can find all the episodes i loved watching it back in the day

If you don’t wish to have a frown lines on your forehead and a face that would turn milk sour then cheer the fook up.

LIFE’S FOR BEING HAPPY

Here are some funny clips that will have you nearly wetting yourself with laughter.

When you’re having a crap day: How to get through it 

Well as I am having one today I thought I’d share with you what I feel helps me not feel so shite.

I grab my sketch pad and pencils and get lost in what I’m drawing. As you can see I’m not that good but it makes me a bit more relaxed. You should definitely give it a try it’s a well cheap hobby.

I’m not ashamed to say I own a few self help books especially ones that have interesting questions and quotes in like this one. We all need a bit of guidance from time to time, right?

Writing in a diary helps me get whatever thoughts about the day out and onto paper. It definitely helps the stress levels.

Music is what keeps me going whether it’s a good day or a bad one. I have found acoustic to be quite soothing.

With the power of Spotify it can relax my body and mind and maybe have a snooze which never hurts anyone.

Pick your favourite films, mine are nostalgic ones when I’m having a bad day and they are an instant mood lifter

Bridget Jones is a legend and Colin and Hugh are the eye candy…Happy days 

So many memories flood back watching this film it taught me things I didn’t know when I was 12 and I remember watching it at my mates sleepover on video. Oh my how times have changed.

Demi Moore, Christina Ricci and Thora Birch make this film what it is. I love it.

I grab my hot water bottle, one of many…

and my eye mask, shut my peepers and hope for a better day tomorrow.

Remember:

Don’t ruin a good today because of a bad yesterday.
