Blog Inspiration and Motivation

I've been posting pretty much twice a week since I started my blog, which I know isn't as much as other bloggers, but for me and the amount of products I have, it's enough to keep the blog going. Recently though, I've been in a bit of a ditch and the motivation has just kinda faded away. There is no way that I would even think of stopping blogging at this point in time, even though my blog isn't a huge sensation and I don't make any money from it, it is something I really enjoy and I would much rather that, than stop because I wasn't a huge success.

I feel a lot of bloggers recently have been feeling the pressure, I've seen a lot of posts talking about the competition in the blogging world and how changes in websites and their systems are making it more difficult for up and coming bloggers to be noticed. Of course the successful bloggers are successful for a reason, but one of my favourite things to do, is find smaller bloggers that don't have thousands of followers and see if I like their content, because I know how satisfying and exciting it is to get a new follower when you don't have many. I've also seen posts stating that people are struggling to come up with new content, and it seems to be a common thing around this time of year, so maybe my problem is just what a lot of others are feeling too.

I have a couple of posts planned, but they're to do with events in the year so have to go up on specific dates. I usually have a backlog of post ideas that need writing or photos, so if I end up with a day that I don't know what to post, I can just look back to those and pick one out to finish it. But recently, I haven't had the motivation to finish them, or to create new ones. I think it's something that a lot of bloggers go through but I'm trying to find my way out of it and at the moment, it's not really working. I'm always looking for new inspiration and what other people are posting about, not to copy them outright, but to see what is popular.

I think soon I will need to give myself a good kick and try even harder to find some post ideas. I know it seems a bit strange, but I thought this post explaining my possible lack of posts would be better than nothing!

Is anyone else going through this? Or if you have gone through this, how did you combat it? Please let me know!

Until next time...
