Bloggers Block

(Picture Credit - here)

Since about May/June time, I have been quite productive in the blogging process.  Dare I say I upped my game?! I went from posting to no particular schedule (what I want, when I want, very inconsistently) to posting to quite a strict schedule (Once a week, every Saturday which then progressed to twice a week, Wednesdays and Saturdays. Each post 7am sharp.). This was great, I felt super accomplished and proud and I felt myself getting more recognition and opportunities because of this. Now this is where Bloggers Block comes in. Obviously, I mean what better timing right?


Now I'm not talking the stereotypical bloggers block where you lack inspiration and simply cannot muster up any ideas to write about. I have plenty of ideas all written down in a little book of mine, screaming out to be made into something amazing - I even have the pictures for them already. I'm simply finding myself unable to put the post together - I just can't find the words.

This brings me to today. I have no posts left in my 'scheduled' tab and theres nothing in my drafts. I'm panicking! I don't for one second want to break my blogging streak (this post is already a day late) but I don't want to force out a post and not love it.

So I'm asking you... What do you do when Bloggers Block strikes?

This post was a bit different for me as it's a bit of a ramble almost like a diary entry! I just wanted to let you in on it! I hope you don't think this was too negative! Fingers crossed I get my blogging mojo back!

  2. Bloggers block is a right pain in the arse, I feel you. I honestly don't really know what I do to "cure" it as such, I have a flick through post ideas by some of my favourite bloggers and hope that creativity strikes.
    I tend to sit back at have a week off and then when I'm back I'm raring to go, it's ok to not stick to your schedule, sometimes that makes the pressure 10 times worse! x

    1. Isn't it just?! That's so true - I feel like if i force ideas then I'm not giving myself chance to think of good ones! Thank you for commenting x

  3. I don't experience block often just yet (knock on wood this continues), but there are times when I get stalled during writing. Can't find the right words, or the right way to say something. Those times, I try to empty my head and do some mindless surfing. I visit trashy celebrity news sites and just sort've drink it all in, or surf my Facebook page. Oftentimes, someone will be ranting about something, or posting some silliness, and that will spark more blog ideas for me. Often you can come at an idea from an entirely new angle - one that's personal to you - and give yourself a fresh new blog post.

  4. The main bloggers block I get is when I can't think of what words to write (even though I have photos) - it's so annoying! I usually post outfit posts so I don't think it matters to much if I haven't written much with the photos, but I haven't yet worked out how to overcome bloggers block!

It is pointless trying to force it because that will just stress you out more! We're all creative and full of so many ideas! I'll stay tuned to see what you'll be posting soon lovely ! Good luck :)

  6. This has happened to me a lot over the past year! For me, I find that just taking a break for as long as you need really helps. Also talking to other bloggers in Twitter chats has been inspiring me lately! #girlgang
