Today I have totally no idea what to blog about, and then I thought that I will share what I do when I have this problem, so the problem of not knowing what to blog about turned in to a blog post about not knowing what to blog about :) After more than 8 years of blogging this is what I do when my mind is on a blank:
- Check your last 10 blogposts, write them down and then come up with new blogposts inspired by those last 10 ones. For example a previous blogpost about our furniture projects could lead to of course the before and after photo's of those furniture pieces but also a tutorial on how to fix a furniture piece or I could share furniture pieces made by others that I love and there you have 3 blogposts that you all of a sudden could write simply by thinking about 1 blogpost, with 10 posts you can easily come up with 20 new blog posts materials. If so write them down and look at them when you have no idea on what to write about :)
- Think about what you have done lately and share those new projects, this can be something that you make (and sell) but also a house make over, a little home decor upgrade etc. Sharing the process of these projects is fun for others to see and encouraging comments can also stimulate and motivate you to continue or do more than you originally planned.
- Share something personal that you have gone through lately. You don't need to share your dirty laundry or deepest secrets, but something might have happened lately that will give a good laugh to others or touch someone as they went through something similar.
-And finally I try to mix it up a little so not too much of the same kind of blogposts in a row but different things for variation and to connect with more people as some of your blogposts will be more liked by some people while other kinds might be liked by a different audience.
Here are my favorite three blogposts of all time, hope you enjoy them too:
~Mum decided to cook... (originally posted in 2008)
~Eco Fur (originally posted in 2009)
~Going back to Fairyland (Originally posted in 2014)
