Taking Inspiration From Other Bloggers



I'm here to admit that recently I've been taking a healthy dose of inspiration from other bloggers. Now, I'm not talking 'inspiration' as in copying content ideas, but actually being inspired by my fellow bloggers. I've been a blogger for quite a while now, and the bloggers I follow all come from different aspects of the blogosphere. Fashion bloggers to book bloggers, parenting bloggers to travel bloggers - I think I pretty much have it all covered! 

Now, I mentioned briefly before that I'm kind of in a no-mans land at the moment, career-wise. It's pretty daunting, and as my paid maternity leave comes to an end, I've had to try and scrabble some ideas together to see what I can do going forward. Realistically, my job opportunities are somewhat limited as I can only go back part time for the foreseeable future - yay, extortionate childcare costs! - but I'm trying to take this in my stride. 

Inspired by some of my favourite bloggers, I'm going to attempt to work from home. I've had a few ideas whirling around in my head for some time - including opening an Etsy store - so I've bitten the bullet and started to get the ball rolling. It's not quite ready for a launch yet, but you guys will be the first to know when it happens. As well as this idea, I also have my hands in a few other pies, and I'm always trying to improve my blog so to be able to work part time would hopefully help with this. I feel mostly excited by this and only a tiny bit terrified, but I'm sure the very real reality of providing for the family will spur me on. 

Which bloggers inspire you? Have you taken the plunge into something risky recently?

FYI - my inspiration for this post was the lovely Catherine from Little Paper Swans who has recently started to create some stock photography for bloggers via her etsy store.
