TAKING SMART DRUGS TO BECOME A BETTER BLOGGER?

Taking Smart Drugs To Become A Better Blogger
This is not click bait people…keep your eyes peeled for the Smart Drugs and I’ll be on to that later!

Having creative block is super annoying when it comes to blogging! I think we’ve all been there! No matter how hard you try to get motivated sometimes it’s just too much! Whether it’s life stuff in general that gets in the way, your mental health playing horrid tricks on you or that creative spark just isn’t igniting, sometimes no amount of guilt will get you back on track. But I’m here to hopefully give you a helping hand, a little nudge in the right direction! Here are my ideas, tips and tricks to help you get out of your rut!

 

Blogging tips and blog post ideas

 

Read a magazine! Sometimes reading a magazine like vogue or instyle can give you an idea for a fashion styling post, they also feature lifestyle pieces which may spark an idea for a tagged or list post! And if you need to save on pennies (like me!) then I’ve listed some magazine type websites to get those creative juices flowing!

VOGUE
IN STYLE
THE SUNDAY TIMES
ELLE
STYLIST
GQ MAG
MENS HEALTH
WOMENS HEALTH MAG

Tips to crack writers block

I also love to look at other bloggers for inspiration, sometimes you can find someone who’s on a similar level to you are or they may have similar interests, tips and tricks – Where better to find inspiration!? None other than bloggers themselves! I’ve listed some of my favourites in topic order! Please feel free to write in the comments who your fav inspirational bloggers are.

Poppy Deyes writes about Travel, food and Lifestyle but I go to her for some serious photography inspiration, also I love her layout!

If you want some travel inspiration look no further than Will’s blog ‘The Broke Backpacker‘ – claims he spent travelling around Asia on $12 a day including flights! Now if that doesn’t get the travel bug going I don’t know what will! (See what I did there, Don’t know what Will…Will’s blog, Will writes The Broke Backpacker, No, OK.

OK, so some of Tanya‘s posts are totally unattainable from my point of view because, YOU KNOW, I unfortunately don’t have a spare couple of grand to travel to the Maldives, New York or go on an African Safari. BUT, I love Tanya’s travel posts none the less and if anything Tanya gives me inspo to get my saving hat on, it’s Tanya!

Corinne from Skinned Cartree is one of my all time favs, i’ve learnt SO much from her blogging tips and when I feel like I’m in a bit of a blogging rut, I know if I turn to her site I come away feeling like MR T! She’s like a blogging queen!


Blogging tips and ideas

Watching YouTube can be a massive inspiration depending on your blog niche. There are plenty of YouTubers creating creative DIY videos, beauty, fashion and travel content. Watching someone else might spark an idea. Here are some of my favs…

Jazzy Bum – DIY / Lifestyle
Soph Does Nails – Beauty, nails and DIY
MamaMia Makeup – DIY and Makeup 

Sometimes life gets the better of us and we simply just need a break from blogging. Try not to feel guilty and put pressure on yourself if you need a break, your blog is your blog and no-one elses that’s the beauty of having your own space!

Smart Drugs Review

Lastly I’m going to touch upon smart drugs. I use the term lightly… because obviously this is going to extreme lengths and I’m neither for them nor against them, I simply don’t know enough about them. But I wanted to touch upon these as i’ve only recently heard about them through a BBC documentary, but increasingly hearing about people taking them around exam times or performances. Apparently, Modafinil is the only safe smart drug on the market which enhances your concentration for hours, makes you wake up earlier and supposedly makes the brain work ‘quicker’. Cons can include becoming unsociable, mood swings and people have noticed a difference in their mental health when taking it (feeling depressed / feeling anxious). It can be used for narcolepsy, shift work sleep disorder and excessive daytime sleepiness but a growing amount of people are taking it as a performance enhancing drug. So yeah, weighing up the pros and cons do you agree with students / workers and athletes taking such drugs to enhance their working performance? 

 

Let me know in the comments if you agree with people taking ‘smart drugs’ to get ahead.

  1. ”Apparently, Modafinil is the only safe smart drug on the market which enhances your concentration for hours,”’ First of, just browse trough the Nootropics Subreddit to find more than 2000 safe smart drugs, probably way safer than Modafinil. Second of, the BBC documentary is Real trash, only talking about the pill and not about the lifestyle you have to impliment to make it work for real. Smart Drugs are a subject where ironically, Subreddits and shady forums are wway more accurate than Mainstream media. Email me if you have any questions, not a pro but i’ve doing my own test and researchs on them like many other psychonautes for the last 2 years.

    1. Thanks for your comment! I have read about it on Reddit from people talking from experience. I know with the BBC reporting on something like this they have to be completely unbiased and not seem as if they’re pro smart drugs even if they do work. But I’ll have another look through the nootropics subreddit to see the other safe smart drugs as I like to read about this kind of thing. Thanks again for your comment – interesting to get others input on this subject!
