    Hello Laura,

    another great blog post with helpful tips. Thank you for this one.

    I know these days when blogging becomes a chore too well. I still rememember, back in June this year I was very tired of blogging and writing in general. So I decided to take a break from blogging/writing in the entire July. It helped! In August I was so eager to blog and write again that I couldn’t wait getting on my laptop. 😀

    Besides, I also have a kind of structure for my book reviews. I simply copy and paste it and then fill it out with the information and my opinion of the book. It’s much easier this way and I enjoy writing reviews more again, since I created this structure.

    Have a nice evening!

      Hi Mimi!
      I’m sorry you were struggling with blogging back in June, but I’m glad the break helped! I think that’s sometimes the best thing to do, because you don’t have to worry about it for a while, and you’re enthusiastic to jump back in when you start blogging again.
      And I love the sound of your review structure! I bet that makes it so much easier! Maybe I’ll have to try something similar and see if it works for me, because I tend to struggle a lot with reviews.
      Thanks for commenting 🙂

    Having a list of ideas is great! Also, if you participate in memes like Can’t-Wait Wednesday or Top Ten Tuesday, it can be really motivating to do several of them at one time – it helps you blog ahead and you get a really good feeling of accomplishment!

      I’ve always meant to take part in Top Ten Tuesday, but haven’t yet! It probably does make it easier to blog ahead, so I may have to hurry up and join in with some memes.

    Haha, this is me right now. I’ve been working on my Halloween post all month, and it’s still not done because I haven’t been able to concentrate on it. My brain is too tired for blogging.

    • Laura

      It really sucks when you find yourself struggling to concentrate. I hope you manage to finish your Halloween post and feel less tired soon!

    These are lovely tips, thank you so much for sharing! I always have lists and lists of ideas, whenever something pops up in my mind I write it down, no matter how small or big the idea is. This always helps me when I’m out of inspiration and reassure me, too, haha 🙂

    • Laura

      Keeping a list of ideas is definitely a good way to make things less stressful. I just can’t come up with ideas under pressure, so it’s good to have a list I can look at and just pick something off! 🙂

    Great post and definitely one I need to reference often. Especially now when I am now trying to get into blogging and have no idea how to get my brain on board to actually write some blog posts! I have found starting as soon as I get back from work helps, although I sometimes get sucked into other things when I do that. And just throwing some words on a page is good. It kind of makes me believe I can blog even when I find I keep none of what I originally wrote, the pressure of a bank page goes if I just start writing.

    • Laura

      Starting as soon as I get home from work helps with me too. If I sit down and start reading or watching TV or something, then it’ll probably be hours before I manage to motivate myself to get on with it, if I do at all.
      And definitely, throwing words at the page can be good. It’s better than staring at a blank page!
