Blog Inspiration

I was really surprised about the number of people who were brave enough to take a break from blogging over Christmas and devote some time away from their laptops to the festive times.

A little break has left me swimming with ideas and I hope this post can help a few others, who may feel stuck in a rut or lacking the motivation to pick up their blog again after the holidays.

I love reading blogs and stay up until the early hours most nights catching up on my favourites. The reason I love them is their variety. It's easy to get pigeoned holed into a bloggy corner and whilst this blog features the boys A LOT, I want it to fully encapsulate me rather than just being a "Mummy blog". Not that there is anything wrong with that (it is big business), but being a Mummy is one part of me and I want to share all the different aspects of our life, all in one space (I am in awe of those who can keep up several blogs at one time - I bow to you!).

I keep a notebook with ideas in for blog posts, which helps when I want to look for inspiration.

I have created 12 inspiration envelopes for each month of 2013 each with a good few ideas to help kickstart the weeks in that month. One idea always leads to another.

I love the thought of opening them at the beginning of each month and seeing what I had planned back in January. For example there were loads of things I didn't quite get round to photographing before Christmas or making at all, so those will be saved for Christmas 2013!

Those are a selection of a few of the things I have planned for this year, I don't want to give them all away! It was a great excuse to use my new vintage looking number ink stamps that my husband bought me for Christmas!

How do you collate your ideas? I hope to post a new article every day but that takes some planning and organisation. I usually have the next 4 days or so ready to go but sometimes they shift around if I get distracted!

Share your blog inspiration tips too and we can all help each other. Happy blogging!
