Recently I have been brainstorming my blog - what I want my blog to be, what I don't want it to be, finding random tips online, and pondering new ideas. I also acquired Elsie's Blog Love, which has been a great thought provoker. Anyway, in order to keep my thoughts somewhat organized, I put together this little inspiration notebook. It's so handy! I highly recommend making one for yourself - for anything you might want inspiration in. Just fill it with whatever inspires you!
Here's what you need:
And, of course, a handy dandy notebook! My friend made this one for my birthday last year. I saved it until I found the perfect use for it :)
Take your notebook and FILL IT! If you read helpful tutorials online, write their advice in your notebook. Write blog post ideas, what you like/dislike about blogging, what kind of blogger you aspire to be, and how you plan to achieve your goals. Make a list of blogs you love to read and why - to help remind you of what you love about blogging.
Include inspiration and colors.
Make a list of inspiration posts - things you can fall back on. Mine are specific enough to be helpful, but generic enough to allow for variety - for example, quotes, poetry, memories, lists, favorites, etc.
Throw in helpful reminders and quotes - make them stand out from the page by writing them on washi tape or writing it in a small card and pasting it in your notebook.
I stapled some pages inside a mini card to make a mini-book for one of my lists.
Use bright colored washi tape or fun paper to headline different pages.
Include more inspiration and colors.
Do you already have an inspiration notebook? I'd love to see it!
