Blog Block: Learning to Love Your Blog All over Again

Ideasopt

Blogs need content. Shocking, right? That’s like saying a fish needs water… unfortunately, since water evaporates, sooner or later you’ll find yourself drying up.

You’ve got a blog block. You have nothing left to say. Worse, you may feel a real aversion to blogging. Your blog feels like a weight on your shoulders.

At this stage, money won’t help. Your blog may be making a you a healthy income, but it doesn’t matter. You no longer care.

Relax.

Believe it or not, this scenario is common, and it’s not a disaster. Not even close.

You just need to fall in love with your blog all over again.

Blogs have no finish line

This “I HATE what I’m doing” situation is common when you’re writing a book. In fiction, it happens in the “dreaded middle”.

It’s uncomfortable, but a book has a finish line. You know that if you keep writing (introduce another character, kill a character, twist some motivations), you’ll get through the dreaded middle, and the end will be in sight.

Without a finish line for your blog, you feel as if this aversion to blogging will go on forever. You’ll never have another easy day in your life, because your blog’s sucking all the energy out of you.

Fall in love with your blog again

It’s time to recapture the magic and inspiration you felt when you began your blog.

Here’s how.

1. Go back to your very first posts.

If you’ve been blogging for over a year, you can revisit these posts with some “One Year Ago Today” posts.

Review the posts. Has your opinion on the post’s topic changed? Chances are that it has. Write a new post. Talk about how your opinion has changed, or how the situation has changed.

Perhaps you have new information to share on a post’s topic — share it. In 12 months, you’ve changed, and the world’s changed.

2. Talk to other bloggers.

You need blog buddies. Not only can your buddies write the occasional guest post for you, they can also provide you with fresh motivation and inspiration.

Get some buddies — chat with people. You’ll feel less alone.

3. Collect your favorite/ best blog posts into an ebook.

You’ll find that collecting your favorite posts gives you a sense of accomplishment. You’ve achieved a lot.

Chances are, you’ll also generate ideas for new topics you can develop on your blog.

Give away some free copies of your ebook to get new readers to your blog.

Then post the ebook to Amazon’s Kindle. Not only will you get new readers, you’ll make some money too.

4. Learn more — and share what you’re learning.

No one knows everything. Blogs are voracious. So, keep learning. There’s always something to learn.

Take a course, online or offline — you’ll become inspired.

If you follow the above tips, sooner or later, you’ll fall in love with your blog all over again. Blogging will become fun again.
