Welcome, all. Let's have a dose of blogger motivation! We all need motivation to keep doing what we do, and for online creators it is no different.
In no particular order, these ladies will tell you a few tips and techniques they've used to stay motivated blogging.
"I'm kept motivated by the fact that I love what I do! I constantly
am kept awake with new ideas and could sit working late into the night!
I think the lovely comments from readers about how much they enjoy my blog also keeps me motivated, knowing that what I do is providing some form of service to people!"
What keeps me motivated on a daily basis?
I've always been a very organized person who likes to use time wisely. My mum used to say: "Even when things go haywire, you still can control two things: your attitude and your productivity".
It just stuck with me. Those are two things I keep in check every day and it helps me not only to manage my long to-do lists but also lead a happy lifestyle. If I had to sum it up and name one thing that motivates me, it would be the people I love.
I am beyond grateful for every single one of
those positive, happy and kind people I have in my life.
"I believe what really keeps me going is the idea of helping the community. I can see a lot of creative young people being lost in their lives due to the pressure society puts on them. I'd love to believe that I'm here to present the alternative ways of building a career."
For me, what keeps me motivated is remembering my intention and why I began blogging in the first place.
Everyone needs positivity, advice, and inspiration some times, and so I want my blog to encompass that and help readers, which is my strongest motivator.
"I'm motivated when I feel like I have lots to write about and am full of creativity. I see my blog as a bit of a diary through outfits and so that motivates me to post as the more I post the more I'll have to look back on in the future."
"I can't be motivated unless I'm organized.
My key to anything in life is to keep on track of what you're doing by either writing to-do lists or keeping track of when deadlines are. Along with the organization comes a routine - I wake up and go to bed at the same time everyday.
I also stay motivated by always writing what I feel like writing - sometimes I have off days and it's best to just wait till you get a pop of inspiration than force yourself to write."
"The biggest motivation is definitely my work, my clients and blog readers, what I do, the goals and tasks that I’ve set, and they usually are the first thing that I think of as soon as I open my eyes every morning.
But then I give that time to myself, to relax, have a breakfast with my boyfriend, exercise and sometimes meditate. I believe that is the biggest source of motivation and inspiration for the whole day!
Working out is very motivating and inspiring, I love to start my day with that! And that is usually the best medicine when I hit the block of burn out, when I feel overwhelmed and uninspired.
Being organized and having a discipline also helps!"
I've decided to take a step back and release that constant push that I feel I have been giving myself.
In short, I think my advice to keep motivated would be to ensure you take time out for yourself, to ensure your own state of mind is in balance and that you don't end up so bogged down by what you have to do that you end up overwhelmed and unable to perform.
I started my blog nearly 3 years now and every time I sit down to write, plan or take pictures for a post, it reminds me of how much happiness it's brought over that period of time.
For me it's the passion, I'm doing a hobby I absolutely adore and always receive the loveliest comments!
The beauty community as a whole is a constant support and if I'm ever feeling unmotivated, those on Twitter will send words of wisdom or I'll just look back to why I began; the dream of writing. "
I am motivated by the little wins I experience everyday. You know what this is - traffic boosts, pleasant interactions on social media, knowing that I helped someone find what they want.
My goal is always to work hard, and succeed on purpose.
