I would say since the end of 2016 I’ve been stuck in a blogging funk. I don’t know what it is but I cannot seem to shift it and to be honest, it’s really starting to get me down. My blog has been my hobby for a number of years and I guess it’s just normal to feel like this every now an again, I’ve set myself some tips or just some things to think about to try and shift this funk for good!
Blogging is an online jungle. You are constantly on it even if you are not on your blog itself. Whether it’s Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest or Snapchat. I really need to teach myself to just switch off and have time away from a screen. I need to try to not worry about rushing to get a post up. I’m hoping if I learn to switch off it will give me motivation.
Use the internet wisely
I have been procrastinating online so much during this funk. I’ll go online to write a post, get distracted and end up watching cat videos on YouTube (yes this actually happens). Instead of wasting my time I should really be using this time to find inspiration for posts.
Read more blogs
This seems like an obvious thing to do but to be honest I’m terrible at doing this and rarely do it. I really want to set aside some time each week or day to read some of other people’s posts. If you have any that you think I will love then please leave them below.
Don’t think about numbers
At the end of the day you didn’t start blogging to gain numbers, well at least I didn’t. I started because I wanted to share my thoughts with the world. It doesn’t matter if 1 or 1000 people are reading your posts. Sometimes I start to wish I had more people reading but then I remembered why I started and it makes me happy.
I’m really hoping this tips help shake my blogging funk and bring my blogging mojo back. If you have any tips then let me know, I would love to hear them.
