I started a blog in 2023, here’s what I learned week 10

I started a blog in 2023 here is what i learned in week 10

I’ve been thinking, creating content can sometimes be a drag and especially when you’ve been doing it for a long time you tend to lose inspiration or just get really worn out. I’ve learned quite a few things during my years of content creating and I’d like to share it with you today. Since writing a blog relies on creating new content just like social media, there’s a ton of things that can go wrong and here are ways to avoid burnout.

Ever had one of those days when your brain is buzzing with zillion ideas and you feel like a genius on fire? You’ve got so many great plans you could probably fill up the entire internet. Then, BAM! The very next day, nothing. Nada. Zilch. Your brain decides to take an impromptu vacation, and you’re just sitting there, staring at the darn blinking cursor on a blank page. Well, welcome to the unpredictable world of blogging, my friend!

When I hopped on the blogging bandwagon back in 2023, I was like a kid let loose in a candy store. So much to write, so much to share! It was a content creation party and everyone was invited. Then as I start working during the week, I just suddenly lose it – like my brain shut down, like it needed a nap.

Break Time: Your Secret Weapon in the Blogging World

I realized sometimes it’s really good to take a break, go watch that true crime documentary of the Worst Roommate Ever or Catching Killings on Netflix! (ooh, those have been some of my deadliest favorites recently)
When you get that break, it seems like your brain gets that reset it needs. You start to get inspired by the things you see on TV, or it made you think of something you can relate to and you want to write a post on.

Everyday Magic: Seek Magic every day

Another tip is surround yourself with things that light up that creative spark in you. Trust me, it’s like having your own personal cheerleading squad, only quieter and less bouncy. For example:

  • Books – Whether it’s a whodunit thriller or a dog-eared romance novel, books can be a goldmine for ideas. Plus, there’s nothing like sniffing an old book. Pure bliss, I tell ya!
  • Nature – You’d be surprised how much a walk in the park or a hike can get those brain gears whirring. Nature’s not just about pretty Instagram shots, it’s a factory of inspiration.
  • Art – Dabble with some paint, clay or just good ol’ pencil and paper. Heck, make a doodle. It’s not about creating a masterpiece, but shaking off those cobwebs in your noggin.
  • Music – Create your own playlist that pumps you up. I swear, there are days when a catchy tune saves me from being a grumpy creative goblin.
  • Quirky Collections – Stamps, bottle caps, funny-looking rocks – doesn’t matter. If it makes you happy, it fuels your creativity. My rubber duck collection is a constant source of chuckles and ideas.
  • Movies and TV Shows – Binge-watch away! One minute you’re laughing at a sitcom, the next you’re typing away, flooded with fresh ideas.

Your Stories, Your Wisdom: The Power of Sharing Knowledge and Experience

You know what folks really dig? Stories. The nitty-gritty, the behind-the-scenes, the ‘how the soap gets made’ kind of stuff. They want to know how you became a master in whatever it is you do.

-The Hai Path

They want to be there as you battle creativity stumps, failed recipes, or maybe just spill coffee all over your new white shirt (just me?). Point is, your experiences are your treasure chest of content.

Think about it – you’ve been there, done that, got the t-shirt (hopefully without coffee stains). That means you have a bucket load of stories to share, lessons you’ve learned, and nuggets of wisdom that you picked up along the way. And guess what? That’s blogging gold right there. You could probably write an entire book, but let’s start with a 1500-word post, eh?

Why? Because it’s your story, your perspective, your unique take on things. Nobody else has lived your life, seen things your way, or made the same hilarious mistakes. (I mean, who else has walked into a glass door because they were too busy trying to capture the perfect selfie? No one? Just me again? Moving on…)

So, don’t be shy about sharing your journey. You never know who might benefit from your experiences, or get a good chuckle out of your misadventures. And besides, when you’re sharing your own experiences and opinions, those words will flow easier than gossip at a high school reunion.

In Conclusion: The Journey Matters

So there you have it, folks – my quirky, rollercoaster ride of a journey into the world of blogging. It’s been a mix of ha-ha moments, oh-no moments, and everything in between. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that the magic happens when you embrace the chaos, when you’re unafraid to share your journey, warts and all.

Blogging isn’t just about perfect prose or viral content. It’s about sharing real, human stories. It’s about adding your unique flavor to the giant melting pot that is the internet. So, whether you’re just starting your blogging journey or you’re an old hand facing a creative block, remember: every voice counts, every story matters, and every once in a while, we all need a break to binge-watch our favorite shows.

In this crazy, beautiful, frustrating, and rewarding journey of blogging, remember to find inspiration in the everyday, to share your experiences and, most importantly, to enjoy the ride. Because at the end of the day, blogging is not just about reaching a destination, it’s about the journey and the stories we collect along the way.

So here’s to more stories, more laughter, more ‘oops’ moments and more ‘ah-ha’ moments. Keep typing, keep sharing, and most of all, keep being your fantastic, creative self. And always remember, even on those days when your brain feels like it’s gone on an unexpected holiday, you’ve got this!

Catch you on the flip side!
