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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
