As any blogger knows–sometimes the slump hits and you don’t have the same luster to post or you feel like you don’t have original ideas to add to the community. Lately, I’ve been feeling both ways. I have the desire to be involved but I can’t seem to come up with any ideas that haven’t been discussed before. Even when writing my reviews I don’t feel that I’m adding anything different.
While writing this discussion piece I know that there have probably been many posts very similar and so I struggle in wondering, is it worth posting? As a reader, do you mind seeing the same subjects rehashed? The same books reviewed? I sometimes feel like I’m just regurgitating everything I see around me. This does not bode well for enthusiastic posts.
Luckily, I know this is just one of those times I’m having a little blogging slump. I had a bigger one back in November where I needed to disconnect and take a break. I was scarcely on my blog for a few weeks and then came back recharged. This go around is a bit different, only because I feel like posting I just feel like my brain has run out of ideas.
How have you dealt with your blogging slumps and the lack of originality?
Funny little tidbit–just googled “book blog-blogging slump” and a slew of posts popped up. I’m obviously not alone.
