You guys, April from Good Books and Good Wine came up with the best Blogging Challenge! And I’m totally participating because it is the best idea ever! Anyway, she came up with 15 challenges (one a day). You should totally participate, too! Here’s the cool graphic and challenges April put together.
It’s Day 11 and today’s all about fighting against blogger fatigue.
For me, it’s just pushing through the tough times. Because all of us bloggers get a little burned out from time to time, trying to put up posts as many days a week as we can and also reading and commenting, etc. This June I was extremely busy at work, so coming home after and exhausting day and doing blog stuff was the last thing I wanted to do. But I just kept thinking, once I catch my breath, I’ll be really disappointed in myself if I didn’t get as much blogging stuff done as possible.
I know some bloggers like to take breaks, but I was afraid that if I took a whole week off, I would never be able to get the momentum going again. I think about all the progress I’ve made since I started blogging. I don’t want to feel like that was for nothing.
But ultimately, I try to remember why I started blogging in the first place. I try to encourage that excitement of first starting my blog to build up in me again. And I think about the people I’ve met through blogging. And that helps me keep blogging fatigue at bay. I still experience it, of course, but I’m able to work through it.
