Fields trip for blog inspiration? Is this school? No, it’s not, but I like to call my outings for blog inspiration as “field trips.” Since I’m home a lot, being within four walls can suck out inspiration. Sure, the Internet has a lot of wonderful things that I can learn, and can fuel ideas for my blog, but it can only do so much.
Blog Inspiration – Why Sometimes Taking a Field Trip Helps
Fresh air, some sun, and a different environment can do a lot of wonders. Unlike a lot of my colleagues, I am an extrovert, so working from home has made me learn how to mingle in other ways. When I can’t, I have to go out and find somewhere to meet others, or experience something new.
For some, meeting someone else can be a nightmare, but if you can overcome it, you can learn a lot about other people and it can influence how you blog. How can it? Well, maybe the person you met has a learning or physical disorder, or a really interesting life story. Things that you don’t normally face, can be a life changer, especially when you hear about it from someone else.
Aside from meeting people, take a field trip somewhere. It could be the park, or recreation center, a beach, or a short road trip. You could even go on a vacation. Take pictures, soak in the sights, and think about how you feel in that setting. You could even bring a small notebook and jot down a few notes. Or, you can just enjoy your time, and not think about blogging. For some people, they feel that they have to blog or else they will fail, and honestly, that’s a recipe towards blogger burnout.
The point is, that regardless of where you’re an introvert or extrovert, as a blogger, you should try a field trip every so often to help inspire you to blog. Blogging takes a lot of time to master, and not everyone is a writing machine, or filled with ideas all of the time.
