How to get out of a blogging dip

Maybe you've noticed that I haven't been posting many new blogposts in these last few weeks. I couldn't find the motivation or inspiration to write or think of new ideas. This week I've totally found back my motivation and inspiration and I can't wait to be productive again, which is probably the best feeling. But I know that I'm not the only one who has this kind of blogging dip so I do have some tips for those who are struggling.

Remember the reason why you started blogging in the first place  

I found out that the biggest reason why I felt on a low point of blogging, was because I've been putting so much pressure on myself. Go back to the moment when you wrote your first blogpost and think about that enthusiasm. What made you starting your blog? What is your talent? Focus on these questions and on the skills you're best at and you'll see that this will project themselves in the content you make.

Take a break
Take a little break to clear your mind and come up with some new ideas. Take a cup of tea, some food, put on some candles, snuggle in some blankets and start brainstorming. You'll get the best ideas when you're feeling relaxed and without any pressure.

Think about the future
Something that brought back my 'blogging spark' was dreaming, thinking about the future. What do I want to achieve with my blog? Where do I see myself and my blog in a year? What would I do if time or money wasn't a problem? It doesn't matter how 'unreal' your ideas sounds, dreams can keep you motivated and who knows that maybe one day they will become truth.
