In previous years of doing NaBloPoMo I have fallen back on posts about our cats for when I’m feeling uninspired. I’m a little reluctant to do that at the moment. My reasoning for this is that I now regularly contribute to Katzenworld, and when I have a good cat post and accompanying cat pictures I would want to use them for the posts there.
On top of that we’ve not been using our camera very much since we moved, so we haven’t been getting a lot of pictures to use for cat posts. First because the camera was packed away in a box and we didn’t know where it was. Then because we forgot we’d found it and thought it was still in a box somewhere. Whoops?
This does leave me in a bit of a dilemma though. When I’m uninspired I have nothing to fall back on! That’s partly why I restarted doing the drabble challenge yesterday, but I don’t want to be doing that every day. I’m thinking maybe once a week. Twice at most.
Generally speaking I try to come up with ideas for blog posts during the day. They can result from random things I thought of, things that happened to me, or that I did… Sometimes though I may be particularly busy and then when I get home I realise I haven’t thought of anything to write about.
I guess I can always fall back on posts like this one – where I don’t really talk about anything at all!
How do you find motivation and inspiration for blog posts? What’s your fall back plan when you can’t think of anything to write about?
