The very awesome April over at Good Books and Good Wine is hosting this 15 DAY CHALLENGE for book bloggers! I’ll admit that my love of blogging has wained in the last few months since learning I was pregnant, but I’m ready to get that love back (which started with reading an ENTIRE BOOK!) … I hope this helps!
Today’s question: How do you fight blogger fatigue?
Blogger fatigue is something that I am familiar with. It usually comes up after binging on reading, or spending days upon days doing blog updates. After a while, I need a break.
Here are a few of the ways that I try to fight blogger fatigue:
1. Take breaks. If I feel a reading slump coming on, or even a slump coming on where I don’t want to do blog things, I take a break and do something else — watch a TV show, clean the house, play with the dogs, pick up a crossword puzzle or some crocheting. Do something that isn’t related to blogging or reading.
2. Schedule time to blog. Lately, I’ve been trying to spend a certain amount of time in the morning and/or afternoon blogging. That way, I can spend an hour doing the updates I need to do and NOT get overwhelmed. Whatever items I don’t get to one day will certainly be there the next.
3. Ask for help. If I’m feeling overwhelmed with writing posts, it’s always great to put out a call for guest posts. There are lots of wonderful bloggers out there who would love to do a guest post to help out a blogger. Not only does it help out your blog, but linking back to the guest blogger helps out their blog, too!
Those are only a few ways that I combat blogger fatigue, but I’m sure there are many more ways out there!
