Don't panic; we've all been there.
In fact, anyone who's a regular reader of this here blog might have noticed posts have been few and far between of late. The weeks just whizz by, don't they? And before you know it a couple of months have passed and still no post.
True, we all have reasons why our blogs suffer neglect; mine's a result of setting up a new sideline: The Occasional Reporter. But I'm slowly getting the old blogging mojo back - and do you know what, it feels great.
The good news is there's a host of ways you can breathe life into your blog - but here's a really easy one: buy a planner or diary* and make sure you use it.
The one I've been using lately has been helping me twofold; it's been encouraging me to jot down some ideas for upcoming blogs, as well as schedule all the little 'admin' jobs that tend to fall by the wayside.
If you haven't yet checked out TOAD Diaries pop on over to the site; you'll love it. It's a West Yorkshire-based company that's helping make all our lives a whole lot easier via really lovely personalised diaries.
The really great thing about the diaries, though, is you can order one to start from any month of the year. There's no need to wait until January to buy your diary anymore; you can even purchase an 18-month or 5-year diary, if you're that organised.
The clue's in the name, really. TOAD stands for Today or Any Day - perfect if you're someone like me; someone who loves 'To Do' lists and paper-based planners.
I chose to have my diary start in June; I launched my small business around that time and thought it'd give me the kick I needed to get going and start scheduling some social media posts and what not. It's been an absolute gem on that front, folks. If you're worried about letting your usual weekly blogging regime slip, this could well be the answer for you.
I mean, just look how lovely the diary is. There's even a fun 'Make a TOAD' page, where you can create your own paper toad - it doesn't get much better than that. Oh and there's a handy plastic wallet in the back of my diary too, helping me to keep important bits and bobs (like business cards and what not) safe.
I found the ordering process really easy, too. There's even a handy video on the TOAD site which explains how it all works when you come to purchase your personalised diary.
Take a look at the site and order yours today; mine arrived within just days of me hitting 'purchase' - and I'm so thrilled with it. I was able to personalise the front cover with The Occasional Reporter and there's so many cute designs to choose from you'll be browsing the site for ages.
How do you maintain your blogging mojo? Have you got some cool tips I don't know about? Ping 'em my way.
Until next time...
