Monday Musings

Happy Monday lovelies! Today's post is a little on the random side, hence the title...

Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to a meeting with some Event Industry bods who were discussing how they can keep the industry creative, and how to make sure us newbies in the education system graduate as creative as we possibly can be.

One of the main points that stuck in my head from this meeting is that we all want to be creative, and think outside 'the box' - but at the same time we have unintentionally given ourself limitations on what we can and can't do, and what we can and can't say. We don't want to take unnecessary risks, and so essentially limit our own creativity before we have even started.

It was a really interesting topic, and applicable to so many things - including blogging. I'm sure I'm not the only one who gets writers block from time to time (I hope?!). Sometimes I find it difficult to ensure that I am writing regular posts that all have substance - and at other times I seem to have a million random ideas for posts but worry about how they will be received. This got me to wondering about how other bloggers out there keep their blogs creative, fresh and interesting.

It's all well and good when you have been to an event or got your new Boots haul to talk about, but what about those times when you are a student and your latest loan has run out (story of my life) - will my blog still be of interest even when I haven't got a shiny new product to talk about? I'm almost certain that this is where the ability to not worry about other peoples thoughts, and to just let yourself be creative, is key.

If you are reading this I'd love to hear how you bring creativity in to your blog - how you keep your blog interesting. Do you brainstorm your ideas and pre-plan posts? Do you just sit and blog as soon as the idea pops into your head? Where do you look for your inspiration?

If you have made it to the end I apologise for the randomness of this post, but I'm intrigued to hear your thoughts :)

  1. Oh no, you're definitely not the only one who gets writers block :) . I do pre-plan almost every post, because I wouldn't be able to keep on track otherwise. Loved reading this! xo
