Em's Tips | Overcoming Bloggers Block

Staring at the computer screen, waiting for an idea to pop into your head but you're left with that gormless blank look upon your face?! Yup, I'm pretty sure we have all been there at some point! Am I right? So today I wanted to share with you my tips for overcoming bloggers block!

Take a break.
It could be a short break during the day or a longer break. If it's a short break you could go for a walk, grab a cup of tea, have a stretch/do some yoga, so when you come back your mind feels refreshed and you may even have a new idea.
If you feel like your mind is not in blogging anymore, then take a longer break - a couple of days to maybe a couple of weeks. If you really want to continue blogging, you will come back soon enough with plenty of ideas to continue.

Look through old posts.
Have a look through your old posts and see what you have blogged about before. This may help refresh your memory and you may even see a 'series' that you could add to.
I have a few series that I am currently doing for example my 'Top 5.....products" I'm doing a mixture of drugstore, highend, skincare etc.

Find inspiration.
If you're having trouble with coming up with new ideas for posts, think about what apps/things you do to give you inspiration. I am obsessed with Instagram and often get ideas from here.
Also, I get inspiration from other bloggers and what they have posted about but remember, there's getting inspiration and then there is full blown copying, which is a big NO NO!

Make notes.
I always carry a notebook with me and I also have a bigger blogging notebook which I keep at home. The book I carry with me is perfect for when I am on the go and if an idea pops in my head, I can quickly write it down so I don't forget it. 
Then when I get home, I transfer everything into my bigger notebook, so I have all my ideas in one place.
I also find the notes section on my phone comes in handy too!

If all else fails, here are some blog post ideas that you could use if you get bloggers block.

Wishlists - I post plenty of wishlists, always wishing!
Monthly favourites - It's nice to see what bloggers have been loving for the past month
What's in my makeup bag? - I love having a good nose through peoples makeup bags!
Everyday makeup look - Just like the going through the makeup bag, I then like to see what it looks like on!
Reviews - I always look at bloggers reviews before I go and buy a product nowadays
OOTD - I love seeing what people wear from a day-to-day basis!
Dupe Posts - Everyone loves a good dupe!

What are your tips for overcoming bloggers block?
