Loosing my mojo
List your goals
Write down your goals and tick them off one by one. Take small steps towards your goals, slow and steady wins the race and taking each step one by one will help you achieve the bigger picture without feeling too overwhelmed. This can be something super simple like one of my goals this year: wanting more people to see my blog. One evening a week I will schedule tweets for every day including lots of different blog posts, both old and new. This has been really helpful in reaching new audiences and is a small step in building my readers in the grand scheme of things.
Get dressed up and own it!
Plan a shoot at one of your fave locations with some killer outfits. This makes me feel so much more inspired when I’m feeling a bit crap. Even if it’s just that favourite pair of jeans you’ve had for 5 years or an item of clothing which reminds you of a happy memory. Whenever I’ve got new shoot pics I always feel 10 x better and ready to create lots of new content.
Stay away from negativity
Always find a positive. Something happened this weekend which was really quite difficult to take in. A blogger had been literally copying and pasting my blog posts onto her own blog. At first I felt anger and then I actually felt quite upset that someone would do this. I’m not going to go into too much detail as I am sure you have already seen it all unfold on social media, but the one thing I took from it is not to dwell on things too much and use this anger as fuel to work harder and smash my goals! They always say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Most definitely not in this case, however, if there is one thing I will take from this is that negativity breads negativity and ain’t nobody got time for that!
Give yourself a break
Take breaks when needed. One of the most important things I have found is don’t try and push out content when you’re not feeling inspired by it. Having a few days,or even weeks, off social media or not posting weekly when you ‘should’ be, can actually be better in the long run. I always think of ideas when I least expect it and taking a break can allow all those ideas to flood back!
I would love to hear if you have ever got into a bit of a downward spiral with your blog and how you overcame it!
