As a book blogger, I’m always looking for post inspirations everywhere I go, whether it’s the bookstore, a book fair, or even walking to the grocery store. This is all because I want to be constantly sharing interesting and thought-provoking content with you all!
I’ve been lucky enough to have found new ideas for this feature every week without fail, but sometimes the thought of running out of ideas worries me. What would I do? Where would I turn to last minute? Of course, I could plan my posts ahead of time (and I do, when I can) but what if even THAT runs out?
If I’m looking for inspiration, usually reading will do the trick. Books are always great sources for ideas, but other blogs (book blogs, fashion blogs, etc) are also helpful when it comes to jogging my creative side. That’s not to say that I copy others’ ideas (plagiarism is a big no-no!), but sometimes an eye-catching post will inspire me to put my own spin on it. Visually, I’m a huge fan of Instagram and am always looking for new accounts to follow. I love seeing people’s tags even though I rarely participate in them because they’re so pretty to look at! Recently I’ve been contemplating being more active on Pinterest as well, because I think that there is a lot of interesting content there that I’m not taking advantage of.
What about you? Do you have a go-to source of inspiration, or do you just jot them down as they come? Do you ever worry about running out of things to talk about (besides reviews) on your blog?
