Every now and then, Angela and I have a big brainstorming sesh to come up with new blog post ideas. We write down every single idea that comes to mind and then add them to a shared document where we separate the posts by category. Sometimes we’re also inspired to think of blog content when we’re out and about, not even trying to brainstorm. It’s easy to forget this, but inspiration is everywhere.
One thing I have been trying to do lately is seek inspiration for all parts of my life, not just for blogging purposes. I might think of blog post ideas, but I might also find home decor inspiration, gift ideas for friends, or just simple things to journal about and keep to myself. It’s really cool how creative ideas can spill into all different areas of your life.
Because we know that “creative rut” feeling all too well, we’ve gathered a few posts on how to stay inspired! These methods can be used to think of blog content or to get you excited about engaging in different creative outlets. The possibilities are endless.
