How to Enjoy Blogging Again

6 comments


If you have been blogging for a while, you will know that from time to time the novelty and excitement wears off, and can become more of a chore. Whilst I feel bad saying that, because I do enjoy blogging, sometimes I go through phases where I'm just not in the mood. This can last anywhere from just one day, up to a month or so. Usually it is caused by a lack of motivation and ideas, and it can take me a little while to begin to love it again. Here are a few of my tips. 


1. The most obvious one, but most effective, is to take a break. Sometimes this can be a stressful idea to a lot of people because they don't want to let their readers down, but people will understand. Readers would probably prefer it if you are blogging when you really want to, because it is more enjoyable to read. If you don't want to take a complete break, which I often don't like doing, just post less often and hopefully you will feel better for it. If you take a break, you will often find that you end up missing it and then feel excited about getting back into it. 

2. Th second piece of device kind of ties into the previous one, and that is not to put too much pressure on yourself. The thing that you need to ask yourself, when you are feeling tresses about it all, is what will actually happen if I don't post anything today. Usually it will seem like a big deal at the time, when in fact it isn't. 

3. You also need to make sure that you are writing the posts that you want to write, and not writing posts that you don't enjoy because you feel like you should. It is your blog after all. If you are writing posts that you don't enjoy writing, that is probably the reason that you are not feel motivated or loving your blog at the moment. If that could be the issue, then maybe it is time to re-evaluate the posts you are writing, compared to the posts you are currently writing. 

4. Once I have taken a break and want to get back into it, I usually like to make a list of all the dates that I want to post and then write down next to the dates, which posts I want to write. This usually makes me feel motivated and get really excited about my upcoming posts. 

5. I also find it very helpful and motivating to read other people's blogs. I usually do this by scrolling through recent posts on Bloglovin'. It shows me how other people are enjoying blogging, and it usually leaves me feeling the same way. It an also be very useful, as it an also give you ideas at the same time. If it is a lack of ideas that you are struggling with, please read my post about How to Deal with Bloggers Block, and hopefully that will help you out. 

6. My final thing is something that you can't really go yourself but it helps me out a lot, so I thought that I'd include it. Something that also motivates me is reaching a milestone. For example, I was loosing interest in my blog at the beginning of July, and then I recently reached 500 followers on Bloglovin' (feel free to follow me there). It made me so grateful and excited, and made me realise how much I enjoy blogging. Also, nice comments always have the same effect on me and I love reading them. 

I hope this has helped in some way. Just remember that it is common to feel like you are losing interest every so often. Blogging is a hobby to most people (unless you do it as a full time job), but it can still be stressful at times. If you have any other ideas, leave them as a comment below. I would also love your feedback on whether or not you found this useful.

  1. I took a year out from blogging and over the past few months I have got back into. A year is a long time to take a break but it worked for me.

  3. I recently had a break for a month or so and am finally feeling motivated and excited to blog again. I was blogging about topics that I had no interest in and having realized that, blogging to me is much more enjoyable now. Congratulations on 500 followers xx
