|gotta love my Refinery29 calendar|
Makeup, clean eating, fashion, skincare, decor, travel...mostly all bloggers are cursed with the same thing:un-writers block. We have so much that we want to write about that we end up writing about nothing. While I was away for a few weeks I was able to squeeze out just a handful of posts instead of the one a day that I promised myself I would push for. I really did want to write everyday and I would get up at 10am and sit in front of my laptop waiting for the words to pour out of my fingertips but I instead spent that time on Gchat and Facebook. Whoops!
That's when I realized that I'm not a freestyle writer and need guidance. I love all things related to beauty but without having some thing to sit down and write about I get totally lost and very easily distracted. Plus, I need time to get things ready for a post. I need to take nice pics, think about what direction I want the post to be in, etc. I follow so many blogs that have a great flow and consistency and one of the things I started to notice was that they find good ways to mix up their favorite topics so a reader won't see three straight pages of workout tips if that's not the sole focus of the blog.
