Since I began blogging back in May of last year I have seen many people give up on their blog or take a step back and stop working on their blog because they are unable to stay motivated blogging and that’s perfectly okay.
We all need to take a step back and wait until we get inspired again. If you want to make your blog a business, you need to be consistent. I know that can be really hard when you aren’t feeling well or having a bad day but these tips will hopefully help you!
Blogging is harder than you probably thought when you first began especially when you want to make it your career. We all get those thoughts
“ No one cares what I have to say”
“ I’m not good enough”
“ It’s too hard, I don’t have the time”
Remember why you started
When you’re not feeling motivated or having a bad day that you don’t want to do any blog work, take some time out and remember why you started. You started your blog for a reason, think back to that reason and how excited you were to get started.
How did you feel when you began designing your site, writing your first blog post, connecting with the blogging community and learning everything about this amazing hobby or career opportunity.
Find your passion again and find your motivation blogging again.
Take time to find your passion again. How did you come across blogging? What do you absolutely love to talk about? That may have changed since starting your blog and that’s perfectly fine. You may have started off as a lifestyle blogger but find that you enjoy writing all about travel now rather thanlifestyle!
It’s your blog. If you have a passion for what you are writing it will shine through and attract readers. Our lives and passions change as we grow as people. If you don’t enjoy writing lifestyle posts anymore then don’t.
Schedule content in advance
I have a hard time to stay motivated blogging all the time. Some days my depression kicks my ass and I physically can’t even open my laptop to get a day full of work done. Batch work and scheduling are my friends when I am full of energy and really productive. Each and every day I write at least two blog posts and schedule them for the days I plan to post. It takes a lot off my shoulders especially when my mental illness kicks in.
Take your time. There is no need to rush or push yourself too hard. Everything takes time. You will get there.
