Literary art in whatever form is beautiful but quite complicated and arduous to make.

Though passionate writers and bloggers have an endless stream of ideas and seem like they never run out of things to say, the reality is there are days wherein writing becomes more of a chore than a cherished hobby and activity. And when this occurs, inspiration can be rather hard to come by. However, for those who are employed in perhaps a digital marketing agency and are paid to do write-ups every single day, merely calling a day off and taking a break for a day is not exactly feasible—especially when you have a weekly (or even worse, daily) quota to meet. So, how do you get the inner cogs of your brain working? Well, this article does not have a step by step guide for that. But, it does offer you a five diverse quotes and adages from various authors, bloggers, and writers alike to inspire you to get started with your writing.

So while you are here (and are probably looking for something to distract you or inspire you to do some writing), let this article fuel your mind and give you some of the wisest aphorisms from the well-known pundits as regards writing.

“I think the word blog is an ugly word. I just don’t know why people can’t use the word journal” –Moby

Moby may be a songwriter and a musician, but he does have interesting thoughts regarding writing. In a way, his statement does make a lot of sense considering that some blogs are written in the manner of which personal journals are written. However, this is a rather limited view of a bigger picture as blogs nowadays cover an array of topics that range from advice columns to technical guides. The blogging sphere has expanded to be more inclusive of aa muopics rather than the ones we used to see before which chronicles a certain individual’s personal experiences and trials.

“Only on the Internet can a person be lonely and popular at the same time” –Allison Burnett 

In an age where your value as an individual is misguidedly measured by the number of likes you get on social media, truer words have never been spoken. Allison Burnett has pegged our society right as being popular on the web does not always equate to your real life popularity. If you are using your blog as an avenue for popularity, then you may be in for a disappointment. I am not saying it is not possible, but if this is the sole reason you are blogging, then you may want to consider a better way of going about it.

“I don’t want to go viral. I want to set hearts on fire”  - Coco J. Ginger 

Recognition is a great thing, but knowing you have helped someone through your work and through the articles you have crafted is, even more, rewarding. This is why when you are writing articles because you want to help genuinely, you will garner a lot more readership than you would be when you are just trying to get more shares and likes and have it go viral.

“Put your blog out into the world and hope that your talent will speak for itself” - Diablo Cody

Do not be stingy with your talent. Let your voice be heard and start blogging and writing about anything that appeals to you. This is one of the ways you can express yourself and may be your stepping stone towards an even bigger venture, such as writing a book perhaps. Do not let the small things hamper you from doing what you are most passionate about.

“If you want to continually grow your blog, you need to learn to blog on a consistent basis” – Neil Patel 

Practice makes perfect and the more you write, the better your articles will become. Just think about it, your favorite bloggers, authors, and writers started somewhere too and through their perseverance and continuous efforts, they became so much better in their designated craft. During the incipiency of your blogging venture, specific niche topics may be hard to write about and creating an entirely new content is a skill that must be acquired and learned. Through practice, this is achievable and will largely contribute to the success and growth of your blog.
