Motivation is like a roller coaster ride and motivation is very important in whatever we you in life. It is the only driving force behind everything you do or achieved in life, be it going to class daily, or working a 9-5 job.
Staying motivated is very critical in the life of a blogger especially when you are a mini blogger like me and still struggling to get on league.
Here are 5 tips on how I stay motivated-
- Set small goals
Every night before going to sleep make a list of what you are going to do the next day. Everyday try to get atleast 10 unique visitors to your blog and try to gain atleast 3 feedback (comment) in your blog, this will help in knowing your performance status.
2) Turn negative comments into positive
No doubt ! when you put yourself out there in bigger platforms such as social media where strangers are open to judge you or support you, you are equally going to expect both positive and negative comments. Negavtive comments can ruin your entire day but don’t let that affect you. If you viewed negatively, all your energy would be wasted on negative thoughts and you will not produce any positive energy. Take negative feedback as an opportnity to do things differently.
3) Read blogging/motivational quote
Blogging quotes really help us to keep motivated. I always read success stories/quote and watch motivational videos whenever I feel demotivated.
“Building a blog is like making muscles. It takes some time, concentration, motivation and devotion.”
4) Analyze your blog status
Check your blog status after every 2 weeks and compare both the results. Visit your Google Analytic Tool from time to time and read all the performance status of your blog. Know where your traffic comes from and try to create a bond with your viewers/readers.
5) Take a break
Don’t forget to take a break. Break will help you fix things better and into place. Allow yourself in in real socialising rather than internet socialising. Physical environment counts too. A bright sunlight or sipping tea on a mountain top can reduce distraction and help in aid focus. And ‘NO’ I am not talking about any intense meditation activities. Just simple ways of thinking that act as a motivational kick-starters.
Motivation comes from within, but there is no one size fit model, so you need to broaden your horizons and ideas. Obstacles are bound to happen. See each obstacles as a new opportunity to manage emotional intelligence development.

Hope this will help you keep motivated. Let me know how you stay motivated too.
Wearing shirt the normal way is too mainstream, why not style it your way??
Recently, I have been experimenting a lot with my wardrobe and luckily found this shirt. It is a very old piece and I was thinking what can be done with it and trust me I manage to came up with many style but for now I’ll be talking only about 3 .
TUBING : Tubing is sexy and shirt tubing is formal sexy, when your’re at work and your boss asked you out for a dinner date but you’re running short of time to change your outfit, then don’t worry just remember on shirt tubing and you’re all set .
1) Put on your shirt without your sleeves and button it up.
2) Take both the sleeves and tie them up in your waist.
3) Wear a choker (in case you have it in your bag) as it will add more visibility to your collarbones/ beauty bones.
4) Lastly, wear it with confident and your’re all set to lit it up.
OFF-SHOULDER : Currently, off-shoulder has been a latest fashion trend and you’ll find it in every wardrobe (but honestly I don’t own even one) because I was never confident of wearing it. I am not sure whether it will go well with my body type as I have a broad shoulder but after experimenting on this self-made off-shoulder, I think I need to wear it more often from now on and own more off-shoulders top .
1) Leave 2 to 3 buttons unbutton on the top and the rest button it up.
2) You can tugged in your shirt if you are wearing a skirt or else the length of your shirt will be equivalent with the length of your skirt, which apperas odd.
3) You can also leave it open while wrapping a thin belt on it (like I’m wearing here) or a corset belt to make it look more classy.
4) Wear a choker to add more chic on the outfit and it will add more visibility to your collar bone.
FOR-BACK : This is my own personal style, one way to tone down your simple shirt is to wear it for-back .
1) Wearing the back forward and the front backward, button it up as it is but this time in your back .
1) Add any sparkling or shimmery neckpiece so it would hide the shirt’s collar and drag one’s attention towards your neckpiece.
2) Wear a belt if you are wearing a pant, it will make you look taller.
As I’ve mentioned above, after experimenting with this shirt I’ve come up with many styles out of which 3 styles I’ve shown here. You can also wear shirt in the form of a shirtdress, shkirt etc …Try experimenting with your shirt and show me on how you end up.I would love to see it-:)
Thank you for Reading-:)
