What helps you … to be continually creative, inventive or imaginative with your blog?
What inspires and motivates you?
I don’t class myself as creative, we have discussed this before and l have said the same – l prefer to use the phrases, ‘imaginative and inventive’ and yet some would say l am creative, well each to their own. How you personally interpret the asking of this question is entirely down to you. We shall the use word ”creativity” here for ease of recognition and understanding.
Most of my own content is poetry and true story, so l am not having to specifically rely on ‘creativity’ , but memory or emotion and how l am or was feeling at the time when a piece was written. So in my eyes there is nothing special about a recollection, if anything it comes down to how l express those emotions or events with my choice of words and my writing and presentation style. I prefer to write across a range of subjects and topics because l love diversity, but as diverse as my blog is, it could be more so.
With the games, and quizzes and challenges, l suppose if anything that is where the ‘creativity’ might step on board, but as it’s not ”artsy” as l define it, and more intellectual as in a methodical approach to being inventive, l again struggle with how people see me as being creative if that makes for sense?
The fiction l have of my own, is very slim and l will increase that this year, although l am currently displaying a fiction of sorts with the writings of my Father – but that is merely a series by another writer that l present to my readership as an alternative to what l write personally. It just adds a bit more difference in the way of content.
But someone asked me the other day, how l keep on coming up with ideas for my blog and l could only answer in the truth … literally it is what pops into my head at the time and l will research it a bit, perhaps run a trial, see if that achieves a popular response and if so, then run with that for a season or two. That’s not being creative – not in my eyes anyway.
For me, it is always whatever sparks my imagination at the time – it will either work or it will not work, and mostly because l get a kick out of it. My mind loves loads of stimulation, so l stimulate it and if others are mentally stimulated at the same time, well when blogging – that’s a bonus, isn’t it?
But what about you? What helps to spark off your own creative imagination and inventiveness with your blog? What motivate or inspires you to put content in and keep putting it in? Where do you go to get that ignition for your blog content? What lights your fire? Perhaps more importantly, do you consider your blog to be creative or similiar to mine as in inventive and imaginative?
