Inspiration

C: #BlogHER, Influencers Summit!

The BlogHer Influencer’s Summit is around the corner! For those who don’t know, this is an annual event for female content creators.

It features motivating and inspiring speakers, fun engagement activities and the opportunity to meet content creators from around the globe!

The Speaker’s Hall of Fame is impressive in and of itself and includes names like: Serena Williams, Barack Obama, Gabrielle Union, Maria Menounos, and so many more!

Ah, what the heck, I can show you better than I can tell you!

AND LET US NOT FORGET SOME OF THIS YEAR’S SPEAKERS:

This is literally the event to be at if you are in the content creation world. WE ARE 28 DAYS AWAY and I am so sad to be missing out on this event. BUT, next year, time, money and patience permitting, I will be in full attendance.

I’m so ready to network with other creators who know what it’s like to consistently do what they love [and what they want] regardless of it others read it, like it or love it. I’m ready to be around people who know what it’s like to build a family of readers who care about the content and wait for a new post each week!

#BlogHer! I won’t meet you in Brooklyn, New York this year, but I will definitely meet you next year!

LXXIX: Blogspiration!

“Where do you get the inspiration to write so many posts [over the years]?”

I get this question a lot!

Let’s call it “Blogspiration” and let’s say that it hits me at the most random of times! Now, I will start by saying that I have experienced multiple droughts where I just had absolutely nothing in the Creative Tank and just felt like such a loser for it. And then I’ve had times where I fully accepted that I had no new ideas and would rather skip a week than put out content that I don’t even like.

But, for the most part, inspiration for a new blog post strikes me as life happens!

For those who don’t know, I started my blog because I had kept a journal for as long as I can remember but felt as though my experiences and thoughts were relatable! So, I took to the streets with my thoughts and, to my surprise, they’ve been very well received.

Life, as I’ve experienced it, has been a crazy stream of goods and bads; crazies and calms; and adores and detests. So, my blog reflects much of that.

There are times when inspiration for a new post sparks while I’m at a grocery store and I just pull out my phone and put the title of the post in. Luckily for me and the way that I work, all I need is a blog post title and I can usually take it from there. The ideas just flow.

But, for bloggers out there struggling, here are some topics that I’ve covered and some that I haven’t. My hope is that this post will be helpful to any of you out there who may be suffering in the “new post” department:

new post topic ideas:

  • Favorite Youtubers/Instagram Accts

  • Diet and Exercise - always big topics

  • Product Review Posts!

  • Pop Culture

  • Politics 🙄

  • Fitness Goals/Updates

  • Law-Related Posts (which I plan on doing more of)

  • DIY Projects

  • Home Decor via Pinterest

  • Top 5 Pinterest Accts to Follow

  • Best Holiday Travel Locations

  • Tips for Other Bloggers

Hopefully this post was helpful to those of you who are currently on a blogging journey!

LXIX: Blogs To Be On The Lookout For?

Oh Hay, 2019! Let’s start the year off right by loving on some bloggers, authors and content creators!

A big part of blogging is engaging with the blogging community, so why not do a Tag Post!

In this post, I’ll share a couple of blogs by bloggers that I came across on Twitter (⬅️Click the Link to find and follow me). I will try my best to sort them by their focus areas, but excuse me if I miss the mark a bit — a lot of the following bloggers specialize in many areas.

Let’s dive in:

BEAUTY BLOGGERS

Beauty that Walks is a lifestyle, hair, make-up, product review and fashion blog that I, personally, love!

It is run by Editor-and-Chief, Tione Rodney, a student studying Business Administration at the University of the Virgin Islands.

If the natural hair help isn’t enough to get you hooked on her site, then maybe the wide range of posts will. Ms. Rodney clearly does not play when it comes to blogging and I can fully appreciate her range of knowledge.

Don’t believe me, check her out for yourself!

FASHION BLOGGERS

If you are into bright, beautiful & fashion-forward bloggers, then you have to check out Marie’s Blog at whatcorrinedid.com

Here’s a snippet, but I promise you, her page is one you don’t want to pass up! Check her out!

 

LIFESTYLE BLOGGERS

Lifestyle blogs range in variety, we have all things haunted with Medium, Kristi at Haunted History Jaunts with Kristi; or, if you’re not into that, then maybe you’re into enjoying a laugh or two with Philomath who posts funny lifestyle posts to Querianson!

But, if that’s not your speed, then check out what life is like with an invisible mental illness and how it changes your outlook on life with everyone’s favorite Fibro Mom, Suzanne at FibroMomBlog. Or, if you’re curious about a disability that is more noticeable and also very common, then check out Holly’s blog Life of a Blind Girl (a blog that I can definitely relate to)!

A lot of times, bloggers mix mental health into their lifestyle blogs (which I personally love) and of those bloggers, you have to check out Randomly Creative run by Yvonne Wabai, or by Milli on Poised Prodigy.

Maybe you need a bit of uplifting? Check out The Curious Sedulous, a new blogger with tips on beating procrastination and taking yourself from mediocre to productive AF.

Another new blogger worth checking out is Chevany at Chevy Takes The Mic!

Finally, for all things life and law school check out the lovely Corina’s blog Corina’s Corner!
