Revive Your Inner Blogger In North Carolina

If creativity is an essential part of your day-to-day job, you may experience a creative block every once in a while -- you know, that terrifying moment where your mind is so cluttered that you can’t find any ideas anywhere. As a blogger, creativity is highly important, as there are elements of uniqueness & consistency that you need to respect. If you can’t post regularly enough, your followers will grow bored and look for an alternative, another blogger to replace you. In short, if your creative alter ego is feeling weak, it’s time for a change of scenery to explore new landscapes, new colors, and new ways of thinking. You need a creative retreat, a getaway trip to reignite your imaginative fire and energy. If you can afford to spend a few weeks in a writing workshop with a professional tutor, it can dramatically improve your skills and provide you with tips to tackle the creative block. But if you don’t have time for this service, you should plan a getaway weekend in a naturally inspiring place such as gorgeous North Carolina.




Identify your issues as a blogger

As a blogger, you might be struggling with the competition. Indeed, today’s blogosphere relies on your ability to write compelling and relevant articles to attract your audience, as well as expert knowledge of social media strategies. Today’s blog is a business, and sometimes the perfect successful images of other similar blog-businesses can put your survival – and creative sanity – at risk. While blogging is supposed to be fun and enjoyable, for the blogger included, it is easy to see how the competitive atmosphere can push you into a tight corner where writing an article means hard and painful work. So if you feel that you are running low on motivation, inspiration and even joy of writing, it’s time to take a break and learn to look at your writing from a different angle.


Why NC?
You might wonder why North Carolina is so important, as a blogger. That’s primarily because your core skill is writing, and North Carolina has some of the most famous literary icons. So book a room at the Best Western Pinehurst Inn in Southern Pines and trace back the steps of famous writers. The Literary Hall of Fame in town is a great place to start. There you can find out more about Thomas Wolfe, O. Henry, and Timothy Tyson, to name but a few. If you’re looking for inspiration in a comedic style, look back at David Sedaris whose inimitable style has been inspired from his childhood around Raleigh.



 




Why is it so inspiring?
What makes North Carolina so inspiring? For a lot of people, it’s the juxtaposition of gorgeous landscapes, beautiful lakes, and iconic views. There is a sense of poetry in the scenery which can trigger your imagination and your sensibility too. Of course, it doesn’t mean that you should move to NC to become a better blogger. But make sure to record the light, the smells and the sounds to memory for your future articles.




North Carolina is a state that combines a rich social past and an inspiration sensorial environment. Whether you’re a travel blogger, a fashionista, or a beauty InstaStar, you’ll find there new ways of observing the world.
