These are my main tools for my blogging inspiration. When I find myself stuck for blog post ideas or feeling a little lost, I know I need to take some time out and remind myself what it is I love about blogging. I can find myself getting lost for hours reading magazines and blogs. It's always a good refresher of why I love writing and can keep my brain ticking with creative ideas.
Friends and family.
It could be a good idea to have someone who knows that you blog to give you a little kick when you need it! My sister is cute enough to keep herself updated with my blog even though she's not the biggest beauty fan and my mum often asks if I want to use some of her new makeup to blog about, bless her! It can be really encouraging for me as they don't doubt me and encourage me to keep blogging if I am having a bad day.
The blogging community.
It doesn't have to be someone you know in real life, you can easily make a few blogger friends by joining in with the twitter chats and getting to know your fellow bloggers. It's helpful to talk to other bloggers as they can understand how you're feeling and offer any advice or tips that they've learnt. It's also a great way to promote your blog, as more often that not each blogger I speak to, I check out their blogs and if I enjoy it, I'll follow!
I often love spending time working on my blog when I'm curled up in my bedroom. Most of the time, I'm usually surrounded by beauty products I'm aiming to review - that's just because I am creative right?! It's my little place where I feel safe and cosy and am able to come up with new ideas, so it can be a good idea for you to have that space where you love to blog. One day, I long to have my own desk and cover it with pretty décor!
If you're anything like me, you love a good excuse to buy a new notebook or stationery! As you can see in my above image, this is my latest notebook where I am writing notes for new blog post ideas and also writing up a quick post schedule. It can be really handy to carry a little notebook with you everywhere you go in case you find yourself with some spare time and some ideas popping up! Of course, in this day and age you don't just need pen and paper to write notes, you can use your phone or ipad too!
