All outta ideas

I need some help from you guys.

I’ve sat down to write my posts for the week and I’ve come to a dead end. I simply cannot think of anything to write about or photograph. I've also noticed some of my posts going completely uncommented or with very few comments, so I'm worried you guys are getting bored with my posts.

Here’s where you come in. What would you like me to post about?

Do you enjoy my hauls? Outfit posts? Eye make up ideas? Nails of the day? Product reviews?

Please leave me a comment and let me know.

I get way more pleasure knowing that my readers are reading my blog and enjoying my posts.

It can be really difficult when you hit a dry patch but my biggest piece of advice is that if you're finding it hard or boring or anything, take a little break and then come back to it! That's what I did (I took a month or so off) and since coming back I've had loads of ideas. Remember that you're blog is something you do for fun, and if it's not fun you don't technically have to keep going :)
Also, don't worry about comments. I was chatting with Mizz Worthy the other day (quite a big blogger) and she was saying that she has posts where she gets no comments - sometimes, there's just nothing to say (not because a post is bad, just because... well yeah... because) :)
What posts do you enjoy writing most? They're probably the ones that your readers will enjoy writing most, as they'll be the ones with the most personality and the most "you-ness" behind them.
Sorry that's a bit of an essay but I hope it helps a little :) And if it doesn't just ignore me xx

Sorry, one more thing that I just thought of (and then I promise I'll hush) maybe try finishing your posts with a question - something open ended that readers can respond to and engage with :) That's what I've been trying to do recently and I feel like I've gained a bit more reader response than I used to have xx

Hello! I haven't ever commented on your blog but I read all your posts and enjoy them, so don't feel disheartened when you don't receive comments, it doesn't mean people don't enjoy it, you probably have alot of silent readers like me :)

Like Emily said in her second comment, I often end my posts with an open ended question that invites responses!
Don't worry hun we all have dry spells (I have them about once a month. hahaha) but rest assured that EVERYONE goes through stages where they hardly get any comments. There doesn't seem to be any particular reason for it!
My favourites are your eye makeup ideas :3

Aww I know I hate when you take your time to write a post and nobody comments, you think was that an utter shit post or whatever ? I guess with swatches it is what it is so if I comment what you say back to me about it ? - know what I mean ?

I always read and will try and comment a little more :) xxx

I love your posts Siany, the make up ones being my favourite because i'm like 'how the hell did she get that effect' I say stick with exactly what your doing. Do you fancy doing a shoot with all me camera bit soon ? Or maybe even a video ?!? Love to help xx

Have you decorated for the holidays? Maybe do a makeup look or outfit inspired by a special ornament or the overall theme you took this year. I enjoy your posts. :) I took a break from blogs to refresh for the holidays, which wasn't at all related to the quality or quantity of the blogs I so much enjoy reading. Keep up the great posts and happy holidays! :)
