This week we chatting with Emily from Is This Really My Life. If you have a sweet tooth then you’ll want to spend some time on her blog, she has to die for dessert recipes. They look so good I feel like I need to be on a treadmill just to look at them, don’t say I didn’t warn you!
Where do you blog?
I love sitting at my desk in our home office. I have a large south-facing window and plenty of room on the desk for a Diet Coke.
What inspires your blog posts?
Definitely food. Oh, how I love food. And my children. And Pinterest. And food. And my girlfriends. Wait, did I mention food? Life is inspiration in and of itself.
When do you blog?
Though I try to get my blogging done before kids get home from school, I usually find myself writing into the late hours of the night. The house is so quiet and nobody needs me!
What do you do when you get writer’s block?
I step away from the computer and go offline for a while. Immersing myself in “real life” often helps get the creative juices flowing.
What are 3 tips you’d give our readers on how to keep your content fresh?
1. See what other blogs in your “category” are doing and then put your spin on it.
2.Step away from the computer/laptop/tablet/smartphone for a while. Have an experience (date night, girls’ night out, class) and stay offline while doing it.
3. Bounce ideas off friends and family for honest feedback.
