Four and a bit years of blogging behind me, the blogosphere has changed beyond recognition. Gone are the days of a sneaky webcam snap of your new buy and a few words to go alongside it - with the competitive edge of editorial blogging creeping in, it can be daunting and difficult to stay inspired with your blog 'content' and ideas for new posts. Etail PR asked me to contribute some 'blogger tips' to their blog so I thought I'd share some here too! You can read my full post on their blog.

Round these parts at Daisybutter, my content has evolved from its' original postings. I now blog a range of things from outfits, posts dedicated solely to how much I want/need a new bag, detailed snippets of new style accents, recipes, reviews, lifestyle ideas and more.

Here's some of my top tips for staying inspired to blog:
  • Half an idea makes a full post: Those half-formed sentences and ideas that pop in your head throughout the day? Note them down in a notebook or on the notepad app on your phone. On a quiet Sunday, collate those half-ideas and see what they could formulate.
  • Use your tools: Twitter is the voice of reason. My favourite social media network aside from Instagram – follow me at @winyeemichelle – is Twitter. It’s a great, instant way to chat to your readers and other bloggers in the community, and it is perfect for gauging potential responses to new posts. If I’m thinking of writing a feature but don’t feel 100% about it, I’ll Tweet and ask my followers for their opinion. The evenings are best for this I find, but you’ll get an instant response and reaction, and get to really engage with your readers.

  4. Great post, especially as I have been having a self confidence crisis lately and not believing in myself or my blog, but like you say blogging has completely evolved from when I first started and I guess we evolve with it. I definitely need to use the tip of noting ideas down, as I always think ooh that'd make a good post and then completely forget about it :) xx

  5. Really great post - I recently deleted one of my blogs, and started again totally from scratch because I was just like NOPE. HATE IT.

    1. Thanks lovely! Thankfully I've never deleted my blog, I just note down post ideas and space them out so during slow inspiration bouts, I'll still have content that I'm proud of going up! x

    1. You're more than welcome Jessica! My main tip would just be not to force posts and content.
