This is a guest post by Peter from Ideas Bubble that is helping us today with ways to save our self from blogging boredom which undoubtedly a blogger faces sometimes. This post is a great survival guide.
(ADMIN NOTE: The recent issue with SmartBloggerz commenting system that restricted many of you to post comments from past 4-5 days has been fixed. You can comment now easily. Let me know if you are still facing any problem.)
7 days a week, a few times posting a week, commenting and guest posting; it all builds up, and before you know it you’ve lost complete interest in blogging. Things can become extremely repetitive if you don’t keep looking for different ways to fuel your interest in the blogosphere.
This can also explain why so many people end up quitting blogging, they don’t achieve the goals that they want or they lose interest. To avoid the same fate as what many people have had before us, there are certain things we can do to escape.
Here Are Just A Few Tips You Can Use To Save Yourself From Blogging Boredom:
Take A Break Already
Your latest post probably can wait till tomorrow, do you seriously need to post every single day? Over working yourself can be one of the prime reasons why people grow bored of blogging. Results don’t just appear straight away, so always be prepared to take a break when you start to notice that nothing is happening for you.
Always Look For New Things To Do
Bloggers get bored because they end up doing the same thing over and over and over, write a guest post and then comment. We need to keep on finding new things to motivate, which is why we should always be on the lookout for them. Why not write a new eBook, host a competition or do a guest posting marathon. These are all things we can do to cure ourselves from boredom.
Find New Readership
New people are always out there for you to amaze. There is bound for there to be someone out there who wants to hear something new from you, so why not give it to them? There is always excitement in building up a strong new friendship with a fellow blogger that you’ve just met. The more you get out and meet, the more you will start to enjoy yourself 😉
Competitions Keep You Going
I love a good competitive competition, one that involves heavy promotion and guest posting. Competitions are also a great way of curing boredom as they give you something new to do that isn’t just constricted around your blog. It also ties in with the point above, of making new readership and friends, as guest posting also does that for you.
This can pass way too much time, seriously. When I’m bored, I might decide to pass the time by modifying my template a small bit, and then this can turn into a full on design change. If you decide to change something, you might come up with a whole new idea, there goes a few hours… And you’re instantly cured from blogging boredom.
Visit A Website You Hate The Most
This technique doesn’t always work, but if you know a website that you really hate, simply go visit it. It might give you the determination to continue on and achieve something greater than it; I’m not too sure if this technique completely works though. Hope it doesn’t have the adverse effect either. 😛
