Editor: Since Felice wrote this blog post a while back, I've come across my favourite resource/guide to creating your own blog. There is a complete guide, loads of tips and some great interviews from successful bloggers. Well worth a look: https://firstsiteguide.com/blogging-intro/

While suffering a particularly frustrating episode of writer's block I decided to venture outside of my usual sources for inspiration. In the process I came across some really good infographics which, as a creative thinker, appeal to me much more than huge chunks of text and thus inspired the idea to make them the focus of this post. The irony of writing a blog post about writing blog posts and inspired by not being able to write a blog post is not lost on me.

Here are some of my favourites and if you know of any more, share them in the comments section.
