Oh man. 40 #socialbloggers chats. I cannot believe we’ve done that many already! It doesn’t seem that long ago that we started this weekly Saturday evening chat! I’m so glad we started, because it’s given me lots of food for thought!

This weeks chat was about motivation and inspiration.

Motivation and inspiration can both be fickle things, in my experience.

I’m the type of person to throw myself 150% into something, feeling very motivated and verging on obsession – reading everything about what goal I’m working towards, submerging myself in information and working on it as much as possible.

Unfortunately, this can be fleeting and the drive I have can soon leave me as quick as it has come to me!

This doesn’t relate to just one area of my life, but many, such as:

  • Keeping my room tidy.
  • Exercise.
  • Eating healthy.
  • Learning a new skill.
  • Keeping on top of ironning (yuck).
  • Staying the fuck away from cheese.

The only thing in my whole life that I’ve manage to keep motivated and inspired about is blogging. I’m now hoping to take that motivation and transfer it into exercise, which you can read more about over on my fitness blog where I speak about how I worked out every day last week and lost 5lbs.

Naturally, the #socialbloggers chat was talking about motivation and inspiration in regards to blogging, let’s see what makes our #socialbloggers ladies and gents tick!

Q1: Does inspiration for blog posts come easy for you, or do you have to search hard?

Q2: What do you do when you’re lacking inspiration for blog ideas?

Q3: What things motivate and inspire you to blog?


Q4: Are you self-motivated, or easily distracted? How do you stay on track?

Q5: What’s your favourite motivational or inspirational quote?



  1. Such a super chat!! Keeping motivated to post can be a struggle sometimes. I just have a little break or do something else and then ideas pop into my head!! Super chat xx

  2. Great post my inspiration always come when I’m busy and than I grab my phone type the idea in my memo ,To be honest sometimes it does come easy and sometimes it does not.

  3. When it comes to blogging, the only time I struggle is when my brain is tired because I have too much on my plate. Then I still feel inspired and motivated but cannot produce anything I like the sound or look of. So I take a day off and then it all gets back to normal.

  4. It was interesting to read all these perspectives on motivation. I find that a desire to adhere to my editorial calendar keeps me motivated about blogging.

  5. What a great topic. I love hearing about the creative process of other bloggers. Always staying inspired can be a struggle, but that is one of the reasons i started a blog…to be inspired every day. I find the motivation to keep up daily posts has helped my inspiration immensely!

  6. Well done on losing 5lbs! I also had no idea that you had a fitness blog, I’ll be sure to take a trip over there sometime in the near future 🙂 I can’t say that I lack in inspiration for blog posts, but that doesn’t mean my posts are any good because of it! haha 🙂


  7. Great chat. I am a bit like you if I commit to something I give 150% maybe become slightly obsessive. Hopefully I use this in a good way. Inspiration comes from seeing my creativity and writing on a page it drives me to the next post and adventure. Will have to check out your health blog this is definitely something I could do with inspiration in Lucy x

  8. I’m very much, do as I want, when I want and that’s about it. I blog because I like to share things that I love with others, and because I like wasting a huge portion of my time on my laptop 🙂

  9. looks like a fab chat, so sad I missed it 🙁 hopefully next time! I really admire your motivation in working out everyday! Wish I could as well x
    New post! Would love thoughts 🙂 x | Life as a Petite || Fashion, Crafts & Lifestyle Blog |
