the lifestyle blogger who has nothing to write about
























I'm sure everybody gets those days where you find yourself brain dead, stuck in a wordless rut or where you just can't seem to find anything to say. Some months on my blog 3 posts will come to me with ease. Others times I can be found with my head in my hands and tearing my hair out in desperation for a light bulb moment. There is nothing I hate more than spending more time thinking of ideas rather than putting them down on paper (or screen in this case!).

Sometimes I can mull over possible ideas for what seems like endless amounts of time when I'd much rather knuckle down and produce something I can be proud of. Theatre reviews come easy to me but I couldn't go to the theatre three times in the same month. With exams fast approaching the time just doesn't seem to be there for me to do anything other than read up on enzymes and nuclear fission? So when I heard about the book that Dana Fox, website designer and blogger, had released full to the very last page with blog ideas I couldn't resist. (Some of you may remember my old pink blog layout which was her Summer of 69 blog template).

365 Blog Topic Ideas (For The Lifestyle Blogger Who Has Nothing To Write About) is exactly what it says on the tin. The simple layout of an idea per page makes it easy to skim through and look for something that you can work with and adapt to suit you. Each of the 365 pages has a new idea for you to try, whether you do exactly what it says or change it slightly in order to introduce something of your own to it. Now when I'm stuck for material I simply have to flick through and I have a range of ideas to spark some more creative content.

Now, every so often between the theatre and film reviews, photographs of the sea and the desperate ramblings I can browse through the book and post something a little different. Whether it is 30 things I want to do before I'm 30, ten things that have made me happy this week or a get ready with me photo post (unlikely due to the fact I look ridiculously awkward in pictures) I hope you enjoy something different every once in a while. Although I made this blog to showcase my writing and build a portfolio, which is seen best through my reviews, it's nice sometimes to share something a bit more personal to give you more of an insight as to what goes on behind the screen. I'm not the best of talkers in real life and for some reason I find it so much easier to write down everything that goes on in my life and rather over-imaginative mind rather than speak it aloud.

If you ever find yourself in the same situation as me and wish for that extra bit of help everyone once and a while you can purchase 365 Blog Topic Ideas by clicking here.

I hope you're all enjoying the lovely weather (if it's nice like it is here in North Devon for a change) and good luck to anyone with exams coming soon.
