[Response] Creativity in Blogging

I liked Annie’s Spill the tea: Creativity in Blogging post. Here’s my response to Annie.

From my personal experience, it is hard to be creative if you don’t have much energy. If you’re tired all the time, you’re not going to be thinking about creative ideas. So, I think that having energy is #1, almost like a requirement to being creative. When I have a lot of energy, I will cosplay, blog, draw, and do a bunch of random crafts.

I mostly get inspiration after having fun with my friends. I think this ties in with what I wrote above about having energy. It naturally comes to you when you feel happy and motivated.

I agree that other bloggers and creators are sources of inspiration. If it wasn’t for Annie’s post, this post wouldn’t even exist.

Thinking about my posts, I got a lot of inspiration from anime, songs, and a lot of other things. I’m driven by my passion and love for my interests and hobbies. One of my main reasons for blogging is to have a space to talk about my interests, often because I don’t have anywhere else to dump my thoughts.

Hmm, I don’t think that you can force out creativity. I don’t think it would feel very authentic. Breaks are fine, and sometimes we need them. That way, we can blog with a fresh mind and new ideas. I feel that prolonged breaks are scary, though. What if you become too comfortable and never return to blogging? Or, what if you lose your enthusiasm towards blogging? This is similar to what Annie voiced re: those who never come back. Here’s what I think: Your health comes before blogging.

My Workspace

🍓 What’s up? 🍓

I’ll be talking about a little bit about my workspace and I’m going to explain my creative process. By “workspace” I am referring to my method of blogging because I need a computer and I need to be able to take some time to express myself in a way that tells you a little about who I am.

I want my workspace to be… simple. I just need a computer (or laptop) and a drink. The manga book in the picture has been put away as I write this now.

One of my sources of inspiration is from manga.

I always need to listen to songs when I am blogging.

Sometimes I get inspiration from other blogs. If I see someone else’s photo and it is something that is typical in my own life, I try to take a photo because maybe I had never thought about blogging about it before. All of my other posts are 100% my idea.
