Ways To Fall Back In Love With Blogging

05/19/2019

Blogging is one of the things I always look forward to doing each day, but after doing it for a while it can be easy to fall out of love with it for a bit. You always have to be creative, thinking of new content and not to mention all the admin that goes into it too. It can be a bit overwhelming and draining at times, so if you are feeling this way here are a few ways to fall back in love with blogging.

Take breaks when needed

There is absolutely nothing wrong with taking breaks when needed. Breaks can really help when you are in a creative rut, so don’t feel like you always have to stick to a schedule. Take a few days or a week off from time to time to help you reset.

Remember why you started blogging

Keep in mind why you started your blog and why you create content. It always helps to have a purpose in mind to help you going forward.

Start off slow

If you’re just getting back into blogging, start off slow. Write a few drafts of some posts you might want to create. You don’t have to publish them, but sometimes you have to just start writing to get back into that blogging mindset. Spend some time taking some photos too to get your creativity flowing.

Reevaluate what you’re creating

The beautiful thing about life is we are always changing, so it is natural that your blog content will too. If what you are currently creating doesn’t bring you joy or doesn’t make you want to create more, then spend time thinking of what you would like to create. A few small changes can make all the difference.

Try something new

Push yourself to try something new with your blog, even if you enjoy what you create. This can be trying a new way of taking photos, writing about new topics or changing how you edit your photos. I personally find that this makes me more excited to get to my computer and create blog posts.

Just remember that everything in life comes in waves, so don’t give up on blogging completely. Take breaks when needed, create what you enjoy, and just have fun.

    I know that blogger burnout! We need to think about whether we need to take a break or to fight it. It is definitely important to think about why we started blogging. Is it for me or the viewers? Trying something new can help with the situation as well. Thanks for sharing reasons to keep blogging!

    Good tips! I’m not such a frequent blogger so I haven’t lost touch with it yet but I really want to start posting more regularly. Love the outfit and photos! xx

    I think taking breaks is one of the best blogging advice out there. We do need to step back and reset sometimes! Often people get overwhelmed and give up, when taking a break would be a better solution. Posting less often is also a good way to avoid draining ourselves too much. In a way, posting less often can be like taking a break too. The important thing is to find a way to blog that won’t make us stressed or anxious. Social media can put pressure on our lives, so it is important to know how to use them correctly. This might depend from person to person, but generally speaking trying something new or taking a break is a great way to avoid that blogger burn out.

    I absolutely love this outfit…so simple, so perfect. That blazer is gorgeous! I really like the jeans with the top especially with that belt…and the mules are simply divine. You look fantastic. Awesome hairdo as well. Those soft waves suit you well! Such a lovely styling from head to toe.

    These are all such valuable tips! When you blog for a long time, it is easy to get demotivated at times. So it is always nice to remind yourself why you started. By the way – you look great here! Such beautiful photographs xx

  6. Love love this set of photos, Kara! Really just gorgeous styling. As for falling back in love with blogging – the struggle can be so real, right? It’s difficult to be a one person magazine. I’ve thought about this concept a lot and even written a bit about it – you’re inspiring me to just post it. Happiest Monday, Kara!

    I really love your outfit, Kara! And I loved this post – I’ve been falling in and out of love with blogging a lot lately but I think it’s mostly due to planning my wedding while working full-time. I think the best advice you put on this list is to start off slow – falling out of love with blogging didn’t happen overnight so getting back into the groove probably won’t happen overnight either.

    Thanks for this post!

    What a timely piece! I’ve recently just gotten back into blogging and this post nearly perfectly describes my process for getting back into it. It’s hard especially since it’s so easy to get into a rut, but I’ve found that you just have to stick with it because the ideas will flow at some point.

    You can so easily get stuck in a rut, it’s important to have some time off in between. Blogging is very time consuming so a little break does good to me. Loving all your tips Kara!

    I love this- blogging is a true labor of love, and while that hard work can pay off, it can be really draining. I love to shake things up in terms of trying different looks in order to freshen up the way I feel about my blog.

    Lovingggg this gray blazer on you, girl!

    Helpful tips and a timely discussion. I think a lot of people have been feeling like this and sadly a lot of people now just post to IG. This to me is kind of selling out and being lazy. But on the other hand blogging is a lot of work.

    I only post 2 days a week now and that is kind of like mini break. But a blog is your content un IG which technically they own. I prefer blogs and YT to IG. More engagement and more authentic. IG is kind of like eating potato chips…

    Blogging has A LOT of work behind. I really appreciate and admire all your posts. They are so professional and I can see a lot of work in it. To me it is more difficult to fell back in love with blogging because of time (and because writing on English is more difficult hehe) I prefer to be creative with pics but I try to do my best with writing hehe
    Kisses,

  20. Thank you so much for these useful tips. I completely agree with every word that you wrote, especially that we always need keep in mind why we start. Also your photos are so beautiful, I love this outfit. Thank you for inspiration.

    I think these are all great points! Blogging is a lot of work (no matter how enjoyable) so it’s natural for there to be ups and downs in one’s motivation when it comes to blogging. I especially like your points on changing up content when it no longer feels right or taking breaks to refresh.

    Bloggging burnout is real. That’s why I’m a firm believer of taking a timeout. It can feel like a chore if you’re forcing yourself to come up with a post regularly. Indeed, blogging is no easy task. Passion alone sometimes is not enough, you need to take it slow sometimes. Giving yourself a break from time to time is extremely important. Thanks for the lovely read Kara!

    These are great tips! I think it’s easy to get burnout with anything we do really, especially blogging as it can be so time-consuming a break and looking at things with fresh eyes is always helpful, as is your tip to try something new to remotivate or re-inspire you!

    Hope that your week is going well 🙂

  35. Hi Kara! Great encouraging post. I agree with your advice especially ‘taking breaks’. I skipped posting for 2 weeks because I just felt like I was in a rut creatively. But I definitely think it’s helped me find new motivation and inspiration for content. Hope you’re having a great weekend doll!

  36. These are great tips. I think sometimes people can have burn out. Or they just get blocked in their minds with content. It happens quite often and I love this inspiration because it is so positive and uplifting. Love your blazer and accessories by the way 🙂 http://www.bauchlefashion.com/2019/06/why-espadrille-flats-are-comfortable.html

    I can totally relate to this post. I found this useful and informative. My passion for blogging comes in waves. I have taken several breaks from blogging and social media, but every time I return I do so with a vengeance. I like sharing my opinion on products that I buy, and I like the photography aspect of it all. I don’t enjoy social media and having to constantly promote my blog.

    This is such an amazing post! Blogging involves so much work no one sees but you, that it can be easy to fall out of love for a bit! It happened to me a couple of time – you just don´t feel inspired… Loved your tips so much! I guess except “remembering why you started”, being creative, evolving and experimenting – that´s what keeps us going!

    Have a nice week!
