I’ve been blogging since 2015 and I learn something new about blogging every day. As the years have gone by I’ve gotten better and better with blogging. The number one thing I’ve learned about blogging is that you have to be motivated. Motivation is the biggest factor in basically everything you do. Without it, you can’t do much.
So I get this question a lot ” What Keeps Me Motivated To Blog?” .Well first thing first I have a passion for blogging and creating content. I’m not the greatest writer, sometimes my grammar sucks and I make little mistakes. Writing and challenge myself to become a better writer is the number one thing that keeps me motivated to blog. Hopefully one day one of my blog post will be published. Starting a blog has always been something that I wanted to do and one day I turned a dream into a reality. Not only do I blog but I also make video’s on YouTube. I’ve always wanted to share my ideas and passions with the world so when I discovered that I can create content through blogging and YouTube I was excited.
My love of creating content, sharing my life stories , lifestyle/beauty/health/travel, …. is what truly keeps me motivated to blog. Yes, being a well known blogger is important to me but I didn’t start blogging to become a “popular blogger”. I get really excited when someone tells me that they enjoyed reading my blog or it’s exactly what they needed to hear that day. My motivation for blogging comes from my audience, I do it for them. God has blessed me with a super over active brain.
So here’s what no one ever wants to tell you. Creating content isn’t all glitter, unicorns, and cupcakes. There are good days and then there are aren’t so good days. There are days when I do feel unmotivated and uninspired, and that leaves me with creative block. Creative blocks are such abstract notions that it’s hard to pin down a specific definition of what they are and why they occur. The general consensus seems to be that a period of time when an artist can’t access their inspiration or can’t bring themselves to create new work–is a creative block.
I am proud to say that this doesn’t happen very often but when it does it’s hard. I’ve learned that creativity demands focus and it’s hard to concentrate when life “happens”, when you feel like no one is reading your content, or you aren’t growing as fast as the next person. When these things happen to me and I loose focus I turn to God. I close my computer and I open my bible and I start reading. There is a verse in the book of Colossians, chapter 3 verse 23. It reads “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men,”. I interpret this verse as ” Do it for the REWARD.” Everyone isn’t going to like everything you post but if it’s meant to touch that one persons life it will. Then they will tell their friends and their friends will tell their friend and so on.
So what ever you are passionate about if it’s blogging, YouTube, nails, film, etc., it’s okay to feel discourage the hard part is picking yourself up. If you need a break take one and figure out your purpose and the purpose of what you’re creating. Motivation comes from a lot of different things. Everyone is different in their own unique way. Find what motivates you and the creativity will come.
I hope you all enjoyed this post and got a better insight as to who I am and why I do what I do.
