Have you ever had those days where you don’t feel like doing anything or have absolutely no motivation to write a blog post on your website?
Trust me, you’re definitely not alone as I still get these days myself after being in the industry for a little over 6 years now.
I can definitely relate to what you must be going through at this point in time as I have and still do experience this from time to time myself.
Within the following post, I’ll be showing you guys a few things that I do to get in the mood to blog and find the motivation I need to blog.
If you have ever experienced this and have been struggling with it here lately, then you’re definitely going to want to stick around and read this post to the end.
I’ll be showing you guys how I combat this problem and get in the mood & mindset to get some quality work in and remain productive.
You’ll want to stick around so you’ll know what to do the next time you’re feeling lazy and not in the mood to get any quality work done for the day.
Are you guys ready?
Let’s get started!!
1) Take A Walk Or Exercise
This is one of the best ways for me to get the creative juices flowing and get my blood flowing to the point where I feel motivated to work on my site.
It’s a proven fact that by exercising on a regular basis can help improve your overall health, but did you know that it also helps you become a more efficient blogger?
I actually love walking and try to take as many walks as I can when it’s a nice day.
I can remember on multiple occasions that I would start getting a ton of ideas popping into my head as to what I should blog about next.
Luckily, I have a notepad on my phone where I can jot these ideas down while I’m walking so I can add these to my list of things that I want to blog about next.
If you’re looking for a way to get in the mindset & mood to blog and write some kick-ass killer content, I would highly recommend taking a walk or doing some form of exercise.
This will also get you out of the house for a while and give you the chance to get some fresh air and change up your environment.
2) Mix Up Your Content Strategy
Are you writing the same type of posts day in and day out?
What I mean by this is, are you consistently writing product review after product review nonstop without writing any other types of posts?
If you answered yes to the question above then why you change things up a bit and take a break from a specific type of content for a while?
You’ll actually be quite surprised at how much this can help you and allow you to fall in love with your niche all over again.
Not only will this help you out as a blogger, but it will also give your audience the chance to read a variety of different types of content from you which will broaden their horizons and help gain peoples trust.
They say that variety is the spice of life, right?
In order for you to keep your passion burning red hot for the niche you have chosen to go with, it’s highly imperative that you keep things fresh and interesting.
Depending on the niche you’re currently involved with will ultimately determine the different types of content you’ll be creating on your site.
Who wants to write the same type of repetitive content day in and day out?
Do you guys feel me?
Even worse than that who wants to read the same type of content all the time without mixing it up any?
To keep you in the mood and feeling like you want to blog you need to keep things interesting.
Here are just a few of the many types of content you’ll find on this website listed below
- Product Reviews
- Personal Development Posts
- How to type of posts
- Informative Articles
- List Type of posts (7 foods that are slowly killing you)
- Controversial Opinionated content
- Trending Topics
By mixing up your content strategy and writing on the many topics I’ve listed above for you guys above, this will allow you to explore different sectors of your niche and make blogging fun again.
3) Change Up Your Work Environment
This is something that I have yet to try but I have been wanting to do this for quite some time now.
My good buddy John from Brokeveteran.com has been doing this nearly every day for the past 5 years and has had tremendous results with it.
Here about a week or so ago we got into a pretty lengthy conversation about this topic which has to lead me to include this in the things you can do to get motivated to get your blog on.
By changing up your environment you’ll be able to concentrate more which will enable you to be much more productive.
Ever since I started my own business back in 2013, I have always dreamed of blogging outside at the picnic table, or by the pool but have never actually followed through with this.
However, after our conversation, we had on this earlier last week, I’m going to put this plan into action as early as this week.
I’ll be coming back to this post and updating you guys on how this worked out as well as my experience I had blogging outside of my home so make sure you come back to this post for all the details.
Do we have a deal?
OK, let’s continue moving forward, alright?
4) Start Eating Healthier
They say that you are what you eat and what you put into your body is what you’ll get out of it.
In other words, this means if you put junk into your body then you are more than likely not going to be very productive or capable of achieving any outstanding results.
Here over the past 6 months to a year now I have started eating healthier and I have had amazing results with it so far.
Back in 2015, I quit drinking soda and switched to drinking tea and water and this has helped me out tremendously and helped me shed a bunch of weight.
I now have completely cut out red meat beside very rarely when I have a burger from Steak & Shake or Rallys but I don’t personally buy ground beef from the store and haven’t done so in like 2 years now.
Instead, I buy turkey, chicken, pork, fish, and eggs.
I have also replaced french fries with vegetables and have also cut out other fried foods that aren’t good for you and are likely tearing your insides up without you knowing it.
What were my results?
While I didn’t see any significant changes right away, after about 3 months of consistent changes in my diet, I noticed that I was able to concentrate and focus more on my work.
This means getting more creative when thinking about what to write next or how to structure my next post.
If you’re having trouble focusing on work and you find yourself not in the mood to blog quite frequently then you may want to change up your diet and start eating more healthier foods.
My Closing Thoughts
I have personally tried out 3 out of these 4 things listed above and I can confirm that they do work and can help you get in the mood and the mindset to write a blog post.
Also, as I said earlier, my buddy John has been blogging from different places for nearly 5 years now and has had a great amount of success with it thus far.
If you were to utilize just 2 of these things mentioned in this article and were consistent with them for a minimum of 3 months you should start to see your productivity level rise at a good amount within this time.
These are just 4 things off the top of my head that I could think of that has helped me avoid writer’s block and get in the mood to write some killer kick ass content.
As more things come to mind I’ll be sure to update this post for you guys and keep you informed of the latest ways that I have been able to get in the mood so make sure to check back periodically for these updates.
What Do I Recommend?
Being a blogger can already become quite stressful especially if you’re a newbie and aren’t exactly sure how the whole blogging thing works
If you have been involved in this industry for a decent amount of time then you know that there is nothing easy about blogging.
Without a step by step blogging guide & the right training, you may find this to be pretty challenging and unfortunately, this is why most people quit before they even get started.
Pretty crazy if you ask me, wouldn’t you guys agree?
I always recommend affiliate marketing as the most cost-efficient way to learn how to build a REAL blogging business online for the long term.
There are a variety of ways that you can monetize your blog, but affiliate marketing is by far the most profitable way to do so.
I have been earning a full time living from the comfort of my home for the past 6 years thanks to this amazing business model and as my knowledge continues to grow so does my bank account.
If you’re looking for the most cost-effective and all in one place to learn everything you need to know about affiliate marketing, I would highly recommend Wealthy Affiliate.
This is the place that has taught me everything I know today and the reason why I have been so successful online over the past 6 years.
If this sounds like something you would be interested in learning more about then I would highly recommend you check them out for yourself to see what they can do for you.
Anyways, I really hope this post has helped you guys out and has provided you with some solid ways on how you can get in the mood to blog even when you don’t feel like it.
Have you guys personally tried any of the things I listed above?
If so, I would love to hear about your results.
