I’m assuming that anyone that has been blogging for any length of time has felt that their blog isn’t up to par, doing as great as it once was or you even feel the tiniest bit bored. Let’s face it–sometimes it gets to be a bit repetitive. We need to shake things up and get out of the blog rut we’ve fallen into.
Why do these slumps happen at all?
For me when my blog isn’t getting as many comments or views I start to feel like maybe my content isn’t as great as it might have been in the past. I know that whenever I’ve reviewed a highly anticipated book and I get very few views or comments I tend to ask myself why. I think the worst feeling is when I’ve felt like I had absolutely nothing new to add to the community. At those times I feel completely void of any ideas or inspiration which really takes a toll on my blog esteem. Another thing that can bring me down (admittedly it’s rather lame of me) is when everyone gets an ARC that I don’t get it. I try not to be like that but sometimes it happens.
What do you do when you’re feeling a bit bleh about your blog?
This last time I did a bit of a makeover of the front page (thank you to my dear husband). Also, my bloggy friends are an amazing source of inspiration and help to build me up when I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed or under-inspired. When I began my blogging journey I never dreamed I’d meet and become close to so many amazing people. Without them I don’t think I’d be enjoying the experience nearly as much.
Tell me–what do you do when you suffer from low blog esteem? I’m sure many of you have written posts about this very topic I’d love to see your thoughts so link them in the comments.
