April 16, 2020

Hey guys! This far into lockdown, I am sure you are getting concerned about what to do with your time. For me, not having things to do drives me nuts! Finding the motivation to write a blog post when everything is getting you down can be tough. Writer’s block is surely a thing. When problems like these arise, it is important to focus on other aspects of your blog to help get you back into the spirit again! Here is some inspiration towards filling up your Lockdown Blogging Checklist!


  • Schedule as many posts as possible – every time you feel inspired – write! This will help during those times you are simply not in the mood.
  • Finish blog drafts
  • Work on SEO Optimisation – ensure that every post has enough keywords as well as inbound and outbound links
  • Update plugins, and clear any that you no longer need
  • Speed up your site as much as possible
  • Catch up on blog comments
