App that Inspires You to Blog: Day 15 Smart Blogger Challenge

Sunday, February 15, 2015 Stef dela Cruz, MD 0 Comments

Inspiration comes and goes. For me, inspiration is something that gets consumed, like some fluid I get to keep in a vessel. The more I use it, the more I need to refill.

However, refilling my vial may require some effort. Sometimes, looking for a place to get inspiration just isn’t easy, is it?

That’s why for the 15th day of our Smart Blogger Challenge, I’m sharing with you one of the things I use to make sure I stay focused and inspired: an app my brother reviewed for our tech website, Tech Envy.

Using this app is a reward in itself; it allows me to vent, rant, take note of important ideas, and ask myself therapeutic questions. But wait until you’ve used it for one year – you’ll get a special reward that makes using this app all the more worth it… especially for a blogger.

Why Inspiration Matters to a Blogger

Are you currently using any app to help you blog more or blog better? If not, it’s time you used technology to help you.

We have pomodoro apps to help us from burning out. We have apps that help us figure out how to get out of a rut. Now, we get an app that we can use to stay inspired!

Remember that fatigue is not just physical; it is also psychological.

Can you recall the last time you attended a boring meeting? You probably wanted nothing more than to go home and sleep. Even if you didn’t do any heavy lifting or jogging in that meeting, you felt completely tired.

I can’t blog much if I’m exhausted. When I’m too busy trying to nurse my poor, frazzled brain, I can’t even sit down and think of what words to type on my laptop. How about you?

Smart Blogger Challenge Day 15: The App that Inspires

You’ve waited long enough. I don’t want to keep the secret from you any longer, so let’s get on with the program! Here’s your task for today: a review of the app that just might help you get inspired to blog every single day.

Loop Journal – just what bloggers need

Disclaimer: This app isn’t free. But it’s worth only $1.99 – a small price to pay, considering it’s an app you can use 365 times a year to help fuel your desire to blog!

They say your purchases help define what your goals in life are. A guy who wants to get hired buys a suit and a tie – just in case he gets scheduled for an interview. A girl who wants to become a fashion designer buys her own sewing kit. How about you? If you want to be a really awesome blogger, what purchases are you willing to make?

I say start with a small one, like this app that costs under $2. It costs less than a cup of coffee from Starbucks!
