How To Find Blogging Inspiration

A single thread of hope is still a very powerful thing.

Hey Loves! One of the things I struggle the most when it comes to blogging is finding the inspiration, I know what to write but sometimes I’m not inspired to write anything and I just have a writer’s block. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who goes through this stage and here are some things I do to spark my creative flow!

Salut tout le monde! L’une des choses que je lutte le plus quand il s’agit de bloguer est de trouver l’inspiration, je sais ce qu’il faut écrire mais parfois je ne suis pas inspiré pour écrire quoi que ce soit et j’ai juste un bloc d’écrivain. Je suis sûr que je ne suis pas la seule à passer par cette étape et voici quelques choses que je fais pour stimuler mon flux créatif!

 

Pinterest

Pinterest is becoming one of my favourite social media platforms, I always get inspired when I see the pictures on Pinterest, they’re all very beautiful and visually pleasing. You can see all the themes and aesthetics, it’s really helpful if you want to get some ideas for your flatlays – it really motivates you to take your photography to the next level!

I use Pinterest in terms of photography but you can use it to search for blog ideas as well – it’s literally a search engine for bloggers!

Pinterest est en train de devenir l’une de mes plateformes de médias sociaux préférées, je suis toujours inspiré quand je vois les photos sur Pinterest, elles sont toutes très belles et visuellement agréables. Vous pouvez voir tous les thèmes et l’esthétique, c’est vraiment utile si vous voulez avoir des idées pour vos flatlays – cela vous motive vraiment à prendre votre photographie au niveau supérieur!

J’utilise Pinterest en termes de photographie, mais vous pouvez aussi l’utiliser pour rechercher des idées de blog – c’est littéralement un moteur de recherche pour les blogueurs!

 

Youtube

I sometimes watch Youtube videos to motivate myself and get inspired, usually they’re small influencers which is always inspiring to watch because you see how far they’ve grown and it kind of gives you hope that you can grow your blog (and turn into a business)!

I’m the type of person that needs to be inspired in order to create creative content otherwise my mind is just filled with blank space. I get inspired by seeing other people succeed that’s the reason why I love to watch YouTube videos and tend to avoid watching popular beauty youtubers. There is nothing wrong with them but I don’t really relate to them if you understand what I mean.

Je regarde parfois des vidéos sur Youtube pour me motiver et m’inspirer, en général ce sont de petits influenceurs qui inspirent toujours à regarder parce que vous voyez à quel point ils ont grandi et ça vous donne l’espoir que vous pouvez développer votre blog!

Je suis le type de personne qui doit être inspiré pour créer du contenu créatif, sinon mon esprit est simplement rempli d’espace vide. Je suis inspiré par le fait de voir les autres réussir, c’est la raison pour laquelle j’aime regarder des vidéos sur YouTube et j’ai tendance à ne pas regarder les youtubers de beauté populaires.

 

Going outside

Going outside is really important sometimes even a walk to the park brings such a fresh air to your mind instead of working on your laptop all day.

Aller à l’extérieur est très important parfois même une promenade au parc apporte un tel air frais à votre esprit au lieu de travailler sur votre ordinateur portable toute la journée.

 

Reading blogs

Whenever I’ve a writer’s block, I read my favourite blogs – it reminds me why I started blogging in the first place and it instantly gives me a boost of energy. I don’t read my favourite blogs on a daily or weekly basis so it’s always nice to catch up with them!

Chaque fois que j’ai un bloc, je lis mes blogs préférés – cela me rappelle pourquoi j’ai commencé à bloguer en premier lieu et cela me donne instantanément un regain d’énergie. Je ne lis pas mes blogs préférés sur une base quotidienne ou hebdomadaire donc c’est toujours agréable de les rattraper!

 

Books and magazines

Books and magazines are another great source of inspiration, you can find so much information and you can always learn something new!

Les livres et les magazines sont une autre grande source d’inspiration, vous pouvez trouver tellement d’informations et vous pouvez toujours apprendre quelque chose de nouveau!

 

Taking a break

It’s something I struggle with pretty much everyday, taking a break isn’t only good for your mind but for your health as well. Although it sounds easy, in my mind it isn’t.

Whenever I take a break, I don’t feel productive and I feel I’m wasting such a precious time doing irrelevant things but trust me when I say – once you take a break, you’ll feel much more inspired.

C’est quelque chose que je lutte avec à peu près tous les jours, prendre une pause est non seulement bon pour votre esprit mais aussi pour votre santé. Bien que cela semble facile, dans mon esprit ce n’est pas le cas.

Chaque fois que je fais une pause, je ne me sens pas productif et je sens que je perds un temps précieux à faire des choses non pertinentes mais croyez-moi quand je dis – une fois que vous prenez une pause,une fois que vous prenez une pause, vous vous sentirez beaucoup plus inspiré.

 

Thank you so much for reading! Let me know where or how you find your blogging inspiration!

  1. Loved reading this post! I’ve also been watching smaller channels on YouTube. I’m not sure why, but I feel a little overwhelmed when I see bigger YouTubers unboxing ALL of their PR. The constant makeup releases has been stressing me out (if I’m being honest).

    1. Thank you! I don’t really relate to bigger youtubers anymore and over the years I think they’ve changed (and I’ve changed as well) so I don’t find them inspiring in any way in my opinion 🤷🏻‍♀️😕

  2. Glad it’s not just me that feels their mind is a blank space sometimes 🙂
    Personally I fond walking is the thing that clears my mind and I often think of new ideas during these times. I try to walk different routes when I am not sure where the road I am on will lead me – my imagination seems to recharge from doing that.

    1. Thanks a lot! Check on Pinterest for blog post ideas, they usually have great ideas. I might do a blog post about it (with loads of options like 100 or something), let me know if it’s something you’re interested in and I’ll do it! x

    2. Yes please! I don’t have Pinterest, I’ll have to check though. I also watch YouTube a lot too. I would love for you to do that post, thanks x

  3. Your blog would definitely give me inspiration ☺… Nice post and i don’t know if u have a post on how to edit pictures but if not kindly write one. I especially don’t like using google pictures, I like something convincing and convenient…

  4. Those are great tips, i love going through Pinterest for inspiration and also blogging tips. Also, reading my favorite bloggers posts as you mentioned always helps me find inspiration!

    1. Thank you love! Pinterest is a such a great place to find inspiration and reading my favourite bloggers always motivate me for some reason x

  5. These are great tips. Being online, I think it’s dangerous to forget to go out 😳so it’s definitely important to go out every now and again even if it is just half an hour a day.

    I love Pinterest! I don’t use it necessarily for blogging inspiration but I definitely use it for inspiration in general!

    1. Thank you hun! So true, I can literally spend all day sitting in front of my laptop and sometimes I only get up to eat my lunch/dinner or to do some chores.

      Me too, I used to use it for blogging inspiration but now I use it for inspiration in general, it’s so aesthetically pleasing! x

  6. Great tips…. I sometimes refer to Google and start typing a question…when Google finishes the question off I think of whether I can write a blog post which answers that question…readers are always out to get questions answered 😉

  7. I love that you mentioned “taking a break”! Sometimes all the information really becomes overwhelming and its so refreshing and almost inspiring to take a break and start fresh and with a clean mind. Thank you ! I love your blog!

    1. Exactly, when you don’t take a break your mind will be filled with too much information and you won’t be motivated or neither inspired to write anything. And thank you so much! x

  8. Bonjour , je viens d’ouvrir un blog pour partager car envie d’écrire en ce moment 😉 mais alors c’est la découverte totale, je suis tombée ( sans me faire mal !) sur tes articles, j’ai pas encore tout lu 😉 mais c’est bien intéressant surtout pour quelqu’un comme moi, je n’ai aucune expérience et viens d’ouvrir sur WordPress , tu penses qu’il faut systématiquement mettre aussi en anglais ? Je continu de lire …. merci et continu !

  9. This was very helpful. I am new to the blogging world. It has always been a passion of mine to inspire people… thanks for this post.

  10. I love this! I’m suffering the worst writers block and have been literally panicking from my writers block. i usually write every day! I have been trying to find ways to channel all this newfound motivation to excel in blogging. However, I haven’t been able to produce my best work. I may have to take a step back for a little, but I find blogging inspiration from other wordpress blogs lately! it’s interesting to see things from a different perspective! In order to keep my ideas for articles in tact, I usually write them down as they come to me. This list is so helpful and helps me plan out what to write! Tumblr and Instagram as well as other blogs are my inspiration for blogging.

    1. Thank you so much! Hope you overcome your writer’s block very soon. I don’t use Tumblr but I do love Instagram when it comes to photography! x

    2. I love using Instagram when it comes to photography as well! I have overcome my writers block and just took the pressure off of the article and tried to be as authentic as possible.

  11. Great tips! I love Pinterest but never find the time or energy to recreate from ideas I see. I will be using some ideas though for my nursery when we move! Never thought about blog inspiration from it thoug!

    1. Thank you lovely! Pinterest is the place to go for inspiration and ideas, and I’m exactly like you when it comes to recreating from the ideas I see – I never have the energy to do them haha 😅

  12. these are fantastic tips on getting the imagination flowing! I am forever feeling overwhelmed and taking time out to just enjoy a game can get me thinking better!

  13. This is exactly what I needed to read to feel inspired! I have also fallen in love with Pinterest lately!

    So happy I found your blog!

  14. Thank you! I just got started not that long ago with blogging but I will keep your ideas in mind when I have writer’s block. These are really great ideas.

  15. I used to like watching big YouTubers but now I can’t really relate to them so other than a couple, I like watching small time YouTubers…that was the reason why I loved watching them in the first place! Anyways great post and hope to see more of your posts in the future!

  16. omg i cannot believe i landed on this i have not blogged in about 4 months and just uploaded a blog but trust me i had lost the inspiration but what has helped me is reading other blogs going out and taking time off. so for me really i must say these tips you gave really help and reading them made me get more inspired for sure. http://lucyakaos.blog

    1. Haha me too! And so true, most of the time I’m planning on watching something and I completely end up in another place watching some random videos lol! Thank you! x

  17. Great post. I find Youtube great. The wealth of amazing documentaries, podcasts and lectures on there is astounding. Thank you for sharing – I’ll definitely explore Pinterest more now!

    1. Thank you Joe! I completely agree with you, in terms of documentaries and podcasts – YouTube is the place to go. Pinterest is amazing, make sure to check it out!

  18. Good advice – I often struggle with what I’m going to write about, and since I have myself on a mandatory three-per-week schedule, I don’t allow myself the “writer’s block” out. It’s good to have resources to kick-start your monologues. Thanx!

  19. J’adore l’anglais mais je me permets de commenter en français par envie. Et je suis plus à l’aise en français :3 Je pense retelecharger Pinterest dans ce cas. J’ai du mal à l’utiliser, malheureusement 😅

    1. Pas de soucis, c’est la raison pour laquelle j’écris en anglais et en français. Pinterest est littéralement incroyable, utilisez-le comme un moteur de recherche et épinglez les choses que vous aimez, et vous commencerez à voir pourquoi tout le monde l’aime tellement 😘
