Throughout January we will be running our 31 Day Blog Challenge: 31 days to clean up, grow and improve your blog. What better time than the start of a new year to get things sorted and ready to go for a brand new year of blogging?
We'll be sharing 31 tips, ideas, and strategies for you to get things in order and make blogging easier. This is Day 16.
Alright, so dare we ask? How was Day 15 and did you survive when asked to look critically at your photos? Well, rest easy because today is fun, we promise!
Now that you have a better idea of where your strengths lie and where you need a little help or inspiration, we want you to explore! Step outside of the food blogging world and ask yourself what inspires you. It's so easy to get caught up in our own little world and we tend to forget that there is so much more out there.
To borrow a phrase and book title, go out there and Steal Like an Artist. Austin Kleon sees everything as being up for grabs! He wants you to observe and take what's around you and then turn it into something different or better or just make it your own! So go outside and see what you love and how you can transform it in your own way. Or sit down with Google and type whatever comes to mind. We want you to find five new blogs that spark something within. Here are the five that spoke to us!
You can feel that little hamster in your brain start to speed up in his little wheel just by looking at something new. There may not be some grand "AHA" moment, but it's happening without you even realizing it. The fact that you're more aware of what you're producing allows you to be more perceptive to observe and take it what's around you.
So, go ahead and start stealing like the artist we know you are!
