Did you know that most bloggers have suffered with writer’s block? When you have blogged for so many months or years, it can be challenging to come up with fresh and exciting new content for your readers especially when your creative streak has been drained. At the time of writing this, I was struggling with writer’s block myself so I thought writing this list would be helpful for me, not just you! I am hoping this is going to help some of my fellow cruelty free babes or perhaps prospective bloggers that are looking for some idea to get started in the blogosphere.
So grab yourself *insert favourite drink*, your favourite notepad and a pen and get writing down some post ideas. Happy blogging…
