I'd say I kept my materials fresh by means of stashing my brainstormed ideas on my notepad,drafts or basically anything I could get my hands on to write or type before such inspiration(s) is gone.Partaking on blog hops,challenges,events like this and giveaways are really fun to do at the same time I learned a lot from it from backgrounds,features,memes, everything!and the interwebs seems to know almost most of the answers so yeah. I also keep in mind to do things that I love and share! I mean isn't that what it's all about? sharing,opinion(s) be heard,noted,be taken into consideration and connecting with other people who might also enjoy/do the same :D also social networks especially in the world we are all living in has quite a role on this inviting friends or everyone by means of posting,tweeting,pinning,liking,following all sorts of social interaction is welcome!
I think it's also important to update things more often,to schedule stuff,make it all interesting and vibrant! I do admit I sometimes kinda suck on this part and ugh time management D: haha! but I'll try my best.
