Blogger's Block

Blogger's Block

Pinterest

Hello M'dears!

I'm afraid I have been experiencing a nasty case of blogger's block, which is why I have been completely off the radar for the last two weeks! I have just been feeling highly uninspired lately and quite frankly a bit sick of spending to much time behind my computer. But this morning I felt my fingers itching to type a new post, so behind my desk I went to sit -well technically I'm lying on the couch with my laptop, but it was just so much cooler to make it sound like I actually have this tastefully decorated and highly inspiring home office to blog in.

I guess we all sometimes deal with inspiration-hiccups and from personal experience I have learnt that the best way to get rid of them is to - how highly uncreative it may sound - make up a schedule, a plan, some restrictions for yourself. The danger for me always lingers in spending to much time on pinterest and fashiolista or to lose myself in hypothetically online shopping, while actually I could be writing or taking pictures, doing a DIY or cooking something nice where I can blog about. Of course there's nothing wrong with wasting some time online, but at the end of the day I always feel dissapointed in myself for not having done anything else. And so you end up hating the stuff you actually do to relax yourself!

And when this is the case, things just have to change!

Which is exactly why I have set up some goals for myself and made some rules and plannings to get there. Like: online shopping is strictly for Sunday afternoons, facebook and twitter don't need to be checked more than twice a week, 9am til 5pm on weekdays is reserved for going to school or working for school, etc. That way I can spend an hour or two a day on blogging and/or reading other blogs and I have my Saturday afternoon free for outfit shoots, taking walks, shopping and more of that fun stuff!

Allright now, here we go. Off to a fresh start. Are you with me?

  1. That is a totally normal thing to happen. Sometimes it's important to get away from the computer for a while and recharge.

  2. Hello! I think it's absolutely normal to have periods with either no inspiration or so busy that somehow blogging does not fit in our schedule (the latter happens to me a lot unfortunately...) Having some goals and creating a routine is very helpful and I hope I'll be able to do it as well! BTW, I read on rachel's blogthat you are going to Rome, s nice! If you need any recommemdations (especially for places to eat, just drop me an email! Have a nice, sunny Sunday!

  3. I too agree that it is completely normal to go through these phases. Quite often I find the best thing to do is close my computer + get outside, do stuff + then inspiration will start flowing again. Always take a notebook with you too so you can write your ideas down! I hope your exams went well :) xx
