I have been asked quite a few times where I get the inspiration to blog every day. Well, when there is a will, there is a way. I enjoy writing so I write everyday, hence there is always a new post(s) for you to read on Fashion and Style Police. Also, the more I write, the easier it becomes, so I try to read and write everyday to keep my brain engaged and my ideas flowing. The brain is a muscle, and it needs to be exercised, so I do just that.
However, writing is one thing, and getting inspiration is another. Without inspiration, I will be looking at a black screen all evening, and the words won’t just flow. So, for this post, I will be sharing how and where I get some of my blog inspiration.
I read and comment on other blogs a lot. I like to know what goes on in the blogosphere in general, so keeping up with my favourite blogs and discovering new blogs keeps me in the loop, and inspires me to blog. Some of my favourite blogs at the moment are –
Fashion Mommy – I love Emma’s writing voice and the fact that she updates her blog everyday. I enjoy reading her fashion posts.
I Have Always Believed in the Futures – This lifestyle blog run by Rebecca is a mixture of various topics, and I love that. Variety is the spice of life they say, and find the blog posts very refreshing.
Style Pantry – I adore Folake’s style. She has the coolest fashion sense ever! She looks amazing in outfits I won’t even dream of wearing.
Honest Mum – Vicki’s blog gives me life. She has one of the greatest personalities I have ever come across in the blogging industry, and her blog posts inspires me a lot.
You Baby Me Mummy – I recently came across Aby’s blog and I love it. Her posts on blogging keep me very busy, and I love the cute blog name too.
Apart from blogs and online sites, I also read a lot of books and magazines. I try to read an e-book on my Kindle every week at the least, and I usually go for non fiction books. At the moment, I have zero interest in fiction books.
I am currently reading ‘REACH! from single mom on welfare to digital entrepreneur’ by Lorraine C. Ladish, and I am loving it.
As for magazines, I go for the big five in my eyes, so Glamour, Elle, Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar and Cosmopolitan. I buy some and borrow some every month to keep my ideas flowing.
Life in general inspires me. I get inspiration in the weirdest places sometimes, so I have learnt to just live my life and enjoy it, and the blog ideas will come. However I do find I usually have the coolest ideas when I am relaxing, watching TV, soaking up in a bath tub, going for a walk/drive, or doing chores.
Where do you get your blog inspiration from? Which blogs are you loving at the moment?
