Things I Do When I Don't Have The Mood To Write A New Post | Lenne Zulkiflly

There are days where I feel so sluggish and not in the mood to write. Let's be honest, you don't always want to write, no? Especially when you are a full time college student or you are a full time working mommy or whatever it is, trust me, you will have 'that' day. I tried to write but I feel like everything I managed to jot down is terrible. However, there are things I do when the mood to write is just not there.

Update old photos

I love to update photos in my previous blog posts just because it shows how far I have come to the journey, especially with my photography. Now, I'm still getting the hang of it, I know they are not the best however I'm doing it. Practice makes perfect, right? I just edit a little something here and there or I will change the filter of the old photos.

Update my previous posts

I do this all the time where I will check back my previous posts and spot grammatical errors or typo errors or anything that seemed wrong. I made a little changes in my How Did I Begin Blogging post. I changed the photo and a tad bit of the content as well.

Planning ahead

I usually write a post outline about whatever comes into my mind. It's just an outline, I don't even have a suitable title for it as I can edit them later on. It's okay, nobody is going to see it. Honestly, it may be gibberish and horrible-looking but from there I will find a precious idea to create a full post. That way, I don't suck the fun out of writing. I love writing, and I don't want to hate doing something I love.

Re-read my 'glory' posts


Whenever I don't feel like writing, I choose to read. I read just about anything and one thing I like to do is re-read the posts I have written a while back. I will go back and read them one by one and I will get motivated by them! And I will re-read the comments as well 😉 Some of my glory posts are the ones displayed on the featured slider. I know, I am tacky liddat lol.

Bloglovin' ftw

I save the best for last 👐 Bloglovin' has way better dashboard than Blogger, hands down. I'm so sorry Blogger but you have to step up your dashboard game. Thanks for introducing me to Bloglovin', Erin. My life has changed ever since! I am dramatic liddat. Anyway, Bloglovin' is like a playground to me where I make sure to goof around and enjoy my time spend hours and hours reading awesome blog posts and I'm moved by them. How can I not?

What do you do when the mood to write is just not there?
P/s: I just turned 20 and I am spending my birthday in front of my laptop working on my drafts lol

  12. I noticed Bloglovin is heaven but still I am yet to find my kind of reading material. I always looked for local's blog and the circles were the same. Sometime I just sat with my smartphone and go through blogs in Bloglovin. Blogger are so lame for not having their own apps as well!!
