I’ve noticed a huge drop in blogging engagement and blog posts being made in the community lately. Blogging is not easy and I’m beginning to understand that. I’m finding my inspiration level very low after writing a lot of blog posts for the last two weeks. It’s not easy to think of topics to write about. And this is true especially if you have to write a lot of posts per week. Not everyone has something to say all the time. You also have to write long posts or else the google algorithm will not recommend your blog post.
When I was younger, I found inspiration by watching celebrities. I was obsessed with the Olsen twins. I liked their style and how they were always working. They wore professional, but stylish outfits. And I loved the color black because they wore it all the time. Now that I think about it, I might have liked them because they were young, professional business women. There’s something inspiring about people that have a good work ethic.
When I was older, I drew inspiration from YouTubers. YouTubers are not exactly celebrities, but they do have influence. I didn’t know how they made their money and I couldn’t understand how they could afford so many nice things. Even though I didn’t understand, I still watched their content.
My inspiration now is different. I’m drawing my inspiration from business executives. And these aren’t celebrities. They are real business owners that make their own money. Wow, I’ve changed a lot. I find strong work ethic and financial independence inspiring. Others my age find celebrities inspiring and I don’t fall into that category. I’m different, but I like being different.
I’ve been listening to The Blogging Millionaire. I like how the podcasts are straightforward and easy to understand. The information is also new and not the typical, stereotypical information people usually give about blogging. If you need to find inspiration, you can find it there. I listen to their podcasts on Spotify. They have helped me to be inspired to blog, and I owe much of my rewards to them.
I also find inspiration from a youtuber Names Sarah Rae Vargas. She’s a mom that started blogging. And she branched out to making videos on YouTube. She is completely financially independent and she can afford many things for herself. I want to be just like her.
Another person I find inspiration from is a youtuber named Dixie. Her YouTube name is Homemade Wonderlust. And she makes videos about thru-hiking. She was an engineer that quit her job to start hiking. And she created her own micro greens business while focusing on creating passive income. I want to enjoy life just like her.
Lastly, I am inspired by Meredith Grey from Grey’s Anatomy. I know she’s not a real person, but you can still be inspired from the show right? I like her ability to be strong even though she faced many hardships. She doesn’t allow herself to break down. I like how hard she works. She’ll go to work even when she’s sick. And she’s at work no matter what the circumstances are. Meredith knows her responsibilities and obligations, and that’s what I admire from her character.
I believe we all have people we are inspired by. And if you are ever in a rut or if you’re trying to find something to write about, look at the people who inspire you. Do they inspire you to work harder or do better every day? Become that person. I believe you can be whatever you set out to be.
