How To Blog Happy

turned of monitor near keyboard and mouse

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog! in this post, I will be going over some things I do to make my blogging, work, and writing process a happy and productive one.

But first, let me ask you something. . . What do you feel the most when you blog and/or write? and how does it effect your writing overall? Comment down below with your answers.

Find your writing topic

Give yourself a moment to really think about what you want to write about. . . Have it? Good, and it feels good too. If feels exciting, like thousands of tiny lights came to life within your minds eye.

There are literally millions of ideas to choose from, but here are some things I love writing about: People, the environment (the world), other writings, photographs, art, blogging, lifestyle, and feelings & thoughts.

Once you have found your idea(s), the next thing you can do is. . .

Find your favorite place to write

At a desk, the bathroom (haha. . . yeah), your closest coffee shop with wifi, outside on a blanket on the green grass, in your bedroom, the library. There are many places you can write. . . I have written in all of those places, they all inspire me to write new and different things, and it’s also a good excuse for an introvert to avoid human interaction.

I like listening to music, so any place I can have my playlists is a good place to be.

You should find a place you enjoy being in, or if you feel like it, a place you don’t enjoy being in. Different places (I call them scenes) spark different kinds of writing. Find on that works for you.

Bring some things with you

Because you might not write. I suggest bringing:

  • a drink,
  • notebook/sketch pad,
  • pens,
  • camera,
  • a good book,
  • and a great music playlist.

On your next writing adventure. I think about ‘what if’ scenarios a lot, but I try not to bring a huge load of things I would never need with me, only what I can fit in a medium-sized bag or backpack.

get organised and make a list

When you make a list of what you need to do, it helps to to visualize your daily, weekly, monthly, and general goals. You can add dates, and see them clearly. I write lists from most important and urgent to lesser things I can do later.

  • Biggest and most important thing I have to do.
    • Do this first, and get these things.
    • Things that go along with this project.
  • Write more blog posts!
  • Laundry and clean the rugs.
  • Read that one book on my shelf people tell me to read.
  • Find my missing purple striped sock with a cat on the toe.

Ultimately, try to relax without trying – BREATH

Before you write, take a look around you and take a cooling breath. In though the mouth, out through the nose. Unless you’re sick and congested, then what you need to do is take a long & hot bath with epsom salts and take a break!

That’s all for now friends, but I have many more in the works. The questions from before are: What do you feel the most when you blog and/or write? and how does it effect your writing overall? Comment down below with your answers. Here are some other ways you can connect & support me.

    Lovely advice, Queenie!
    I feel proud once I produce a blog post that’s worth sharing; so that spurs me onto creating more similar content that readers will enjoy. It’s a great outlet for me to try my creative side at writing 🙂

    I agree with all the points suggested in the post. I have written in all places mentioned (well, except the bathroom). I follow a particular routine for a small period of time and then when that doesn’t work, I find a new one. For instance, I used to go to the library and write during last month. But now, I find a corner of my couch as the most creative space.Before the library, it used to be a nook in my bedroom.
    I always have my notepad, my laptop, my phone (in silent mode) and the book that I am currently reading with me when I sit to write.
    The joy of creating a good post cannot be described. Thanks for a good post Queenie.

    I love this! I myself will write when I’m in the bathtub haha. Sometimes it’s just the calm I need to get something out. And my kids are sleeping so I’m not disturbed! When I finish writing a post I feel like I accomplished something and I’m excited to get feedback to see how others relate or feel about it. Although, I don’t always get feedback lol.

    Smiles. I smiled because I could think of doing anything or creating any conducive environment for myself. Kitchen, bedroom, toilet(funny right?) but mostly i feel more comfortable at the middle of the night or early in the morning.
    When i write, there is a calmness in my spirit and when I post, I feel I just solved a problem. But i feel disappointed when nobody read through to either leave a comment or click the like button.
