How to stay motivated blogging

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.

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.

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.

With Love,

  1. Some great advice and little reminders! It’s not always even to stay motivated or find the time to blog and always good to be reminded time off is ok!

  2. This is great advice! My biggest problem is probably scheduling in advance – like you, my mental health can mean I don’t even want to turn on my laptop, which isn’t great for a blogger and really makes me feel worse about it, but I suppose scheduling will take that pressure off. I’m definitely going to try and dedicate time to scheduling posts. Great post!

  3. Great advice. Somedays it can be really hard to stay motivated or feel like you have the time to put your all into your blog.
    My biggest downfall is having lots of posts written and scheduled at once…I seem to take forever to write up a post! Will keep on going though!

  4. Dwah, it’s great that this week that’s what we’re talking about really. The purpose and passion of blogging and what it means to you personally. Awesome post, I’ll definately be sharing it this week!

    PS I’m getting back into mine too — now that Blog Buddy Program is getting figured out and scheduled nicely. Thanks to the team! I think I’m ready to come out of my blog haitus? Wish me luck!

  5. […] Blogging can take up a lot of time and sometimes it’s impossible to be able to sit for hours on end with a laptop and get your blog work done. Now that I am working 4-5 days of the week I am very rarely home to get my blog work done so I spend a lot more time blogging through my phone. Although it’s a bit more difficult on a phone it can be done. There are many apps I use to help me blog on the go.   […]
