If I searched blogging tips on ever-so-helpful Google, I’d probably come up with several articles that would tell me to make my blog stand out. But how does one go about doing that?
I always used to think that blogging creatively would do the trick. I still do believe it. I try to be ‘creative’ with my blog (the keyword being try)- how my blog looks, and also my blog posts and features. Not that I can be real creative with reviews, but I at least try to offer (hopefully) notable ideas about the book I’m reviewing. I think creativity is real important in blogging because not only does it helps the blog to stand out, it also makes for very quality posts.
Putting effort in writing a ‘creative’ blog post is a challenge for all of us bloggers but recently, I’ve been struggling with it a lot. I feel like I’m always posting the same things over and over again- reviews and some of my bookish photos, some sparse discussions. I keep racking my brain to try and write more ‘creative’ posts but it’s hard to come up with ideas since I feel pretty uninspired.
But maybe I’m trying too hard to live up to blogging creatively. Maybe creativity is something that should come naturally as I write a post. Maybe as long as I write a post that’s ‘me’, it’s all good. I’m a little lackluster with coming up with unique post ideas (and also probably writing this very discussion) at the moment, but hopefully, creativity will strike soon!
