32% of you said the hardest part of getting those blog posts published was writing them! I found that really comforting. So often do I find myself struggling for the words, or re-writing posts I'd already completed. Finding the angle you're looking for, writing in an engaging way and keeping to who you are can be quite a challenge!Q1. #Bloggers, what's the one thing that holds you up on getting your posts published? #lbloggers @FemaleBloggerRT— Thea (@theasthinkings) November 27, 2016
@theasthinkings @FemaleBloggerRT omg, all of it! struggling so much keeping up with blogging while working full time 😩— Frankie (@FrankieEdition) November 27, 2016
— Jamie-Leigh Tasker (@_MissJamieLeigh) November 27, 2016For me the hardest thing is getting my photos done. I always have so many ideas for posts, and plenty of drafts written but getting the oomph to plan, set up and shoot photos is always the thing that takes the longest. Like Jamie said finding the right lighting in winter is hard too! I know some bloggers invest in lighting so I'm definitely considering it. Do you have any tips for getting your photos done? Do you write your posts first, or take photos first?
It was really interesting to see what motivates people to get proactive with their blog, and responses were really mixed, but it looks like most bloggers swear by a good routine.Q2. OK then guys another question. What gives you the motivation to get those posts finished and uploaded? #lbloggers @FemaleBloggerRT— Thea (@theasthinkings) November 27, 2016
Coming back to photos again! Stocking up on images and ideas it on almost everyone's list! I can't go anywhere without a trusty notebook, plus its a great excuse to fuel my stationary addiction!!!Q3. Loving all the comments thanks guys! So what tools do you use to help you keep on track? #lbloggers @FemaleBloggerRT— Thea (@theasthinkings) November 27, 2016

— ⛄️Rachel Jeanne🎄 (@msracheljeanne) November 27, 2016It looks like a lot of people are going digital now too, I'm terrible at using apps, I don't take advantage of half the capabilities of my phone, but you've inspired me to try more. I do keep notes on my phone when inspirations hits on the tube, but that's my lot! I need to get on this!
Well that I found unsurprising, I definitely love to find a cosy nook to write in, but I also love writing in public spaces. The change of scenery and buzz of activity definitely make a refreshing change and kick starts my brain into action!Q4. Next question #bloggers. Where do you find yourself most inspired to get blogging? #lbloggers @FemaleBloggerRT— Thea (@theasthinkings) November 27, 2016
Q5. Final Q for you all. If you could offer 1 piece of advice to #bloggers struggling to get round to posting what would it be? @FemaleBloggerRT— Thea (@theasthinkings) November 27, 2016
Well thank you so much to everyone who voted and left comments. We had almost 200 responses in the end which came as a complete surprise! I think I might start doing a regular weekend Q&A about blogging. If you'd enjoy taking part leave some suggestions for a great #hashtag and I'll announce the new hashtag next time!@theasthinkings @FemaleBloggerRT I'm motivated by other people's blogs and seeing how great theirs is. It makes me want to work hard!— Emma | LifeofGibbers (@LifeofGibbers) November 27, 2016
