Need Inspiration - Help?

Hey blog world. I'm in a creative rut. Somehow, nothing seems to be getting me going.... and it's killing me. I'm bored. I'm so bored.

Maybe I should start acting. I think I could do better than that... but I digress.

I just cannot seem to find fulfillment or motivation to do ANYTHING. I'm mad at myself about it honestly; it's way to early in the year for this S. This doesn't bode well for 2013. Not at all.

I've made myself a little list of things to do....

1. Poodleism fervor. Today I've worked on several little items I've been meaning to get to (sponsorships, art improvements, etc.), including a little editorial calendar of sorts. YES! Hopefully I'm finding some renewed interest. I love you guys and miss the blog world, I just can't find any good ideas.

2. Photography. I'm getting back into Fat Mum Slim's Photo a Day challenge. Starts tomorrow. Check me out on Instagram for all the latest updates.

Speaking of Instagram, it's Throwback Thursday. Today's matchy matchy post of me and the little nugget:

...and I digress again. See what I mean people?!

3. Cooking. One recipe per week. Even if it's just a side dish or a lunch thing. I've gotta get back in that kitchen. It's typically my happy zone. Must do.

4. Computer Skillz. I'm in the process of trading in my dinosaur MacBook from a million years ago for a shiny new one with sick software to re-teach myself Photoshop and the like. Hopefully the fruits of that labor will make their way here... but that might be a slow process. And an expensive one, I'm finding.

So blog friends, what else? Books? Volunteering somewhere? DIY? Some other kind of writing outlet? Pinterest (but actually do the stuff)? What do you do to get motivated? Tell me.


  1. Cooking is always good! I get inspired by tons of things from Pinterest. And then I post them on here! Check out some of mine--they're always relatively easy and delish!
    I wanna get more into photography. I have an SLR that I never use. Must get into that.

  2. Try reading this: http://www.amazon.com/Steal-Like-Artist-Things-Creative/dp/0761169253

    it's a quick read. it's not a bible, but it will give you a kick in the pants.


  3. Ahhh! I love that gif!!! I think I'm going to do FMS in March. For some reason the Feb prompts didn't really interest me. Ooh, enjoy the new MacBook! I need some motivation too.


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
