They say that imitation is the greatest form of flattery. When you aren’t sure what to post or how to do it, take a step back and put your work on hold. Start surfing the web for blogs that are in your same niche. Explore, enjoy and leave yourself open to inspiration.
If you happen to come across blogs that offer advice for how their blog reached its level of popularity, take advantage of the free advice and take note! Chances are that if you are open to being influenced, the better of a creator you will become.
Doing a search for images online can be a great way to clear your creativity passages. You never know when an image can spark a new idea or sentiment. Try a website such as Pinterest or Tumblr.
Start scrolling the pictures, keep and open mind, and let even the slightest wave of inspiration get your fingers typing.
Go Outside with a Camera
Sometimes our greatest enemy is locking ourselves inside of our house and only looking at our own four walls. We lack imagination and inspiration because we aren’t exposing ourselves to the world around us and new experiences.
Each new experience that you create becomes an opportunity to share with an audience. This could be through images or writing.
By going outside and taking pictures of your environment, you can begin to get ideas for things in your world you can post about.

There are lots of possibilities for inspiration from hanging out with other people. Give it a try! You may just write your best entry yet!
