I am usually someone who always has ideas for new posts and really get excited to post them for you lovely lot but recently I have come down with a case of writers block and BOY is it starting to annoy me.
Something I always have is a list of posts I could write for those days where Im like ahhhhhhh I have nothing to post and I wanna post. But for some reason, they just aren’t cutting it for me. Maybe its because I feel un inspired or maybe Its because I feel like I haven’t found my spot in the blogging world? I really don’t know. I post every other day on my blog. Some may think thats quite a lot but I feel like in order to get myself out there and allow you lovely readers to get to know me, I need to post a lot. I want to post a lot. As you know every other post I do is an outfit. Outfit posts are the main reason why I started blogging…for me its all about sharing the thing I love to do most and thats putting an outfit together. Every morning I wake up looking forward to what outfit I’m going to wear next and being able to share that on my blog for people to enjoy is so exciting for me. I don’t post outfits for every post purely because I feel like it would be too much or perhaps I would run out of outfit ideas. I probably wouldn’t as I am a shopaholic so there is always new bits and bobs appearing in my wardrobe.
These posts in between are where I am starting to struggle…are those posts boring? do people want to read that kinda post on my blog? Im not sure. I always find that my outfit posts do better but then the odd different post will do really well so I’m in a right old sticky situation. I feel like this could possibly just be a bad patch as I haven’t felt very inspired with life in general so maybe everything is just struggling a bit. Writers block is a funny thing because I can so easily write about something I love and then when I’m not as passionate about something I’m like oh god what on earth do I write for this. It’s like its forced. I wont post a blog post if I’m not fully happy with it or if I think its forced because then I’m only posting it purely because thats the schedule I have set myself. I have often had times where I haven’t posted in a week but I am determined to make my blog more of my day to day life rather than a project on the side. I adore writing about my outfits and I love sharing them with the internet. I am a creative and always have been so when it comes to thinking of ideas I can be a little bit slower, you have to test things out before you know they work for you. I have definitely done this with my Instagram and with topical blog posts. The more I write about this and the more I think about it, I feel like I am just a bit lost at the moment with changes happening at work and worrying if I’ll have time for my blog and for myself more importantly has just sent me into this sluggish slump which I haven’t been able to get out of.
I decided months ago that I would do Blogmas, I really enjoyed it last year and I am so incredibly excited to do it again this year. Im not gunna lie these posts before blogmas are all a little random as all my focus at the moment is going into planning blooms and what I want to post for you. My writers block has not disappeared when it comes to all things christmassy so I will 100% be back to normal when we hit the first of December so please hang on until then and I will try and keep my posts for the run up to blogmas as exciting as I can.
As your reading this I will be in Brighton for a little city break with my bestie which is the break I very much need. Hopefully it will bring I am Charlotte Olivia back to her motivated determined self and ready for the next few months.
Thanks for taking the time to read this post of thoughts and if you’ve got any advice for me, please help a girl out because then I am ready for the next time writers block hits me!
