  1. I find taking a break always helps and then going back to basics – writing what I like to read rather than what I think other people will like to read if that makes sense! xx

  2. Yes blogging can be challenging and it is indeed a lot of work. Your tips are spot on! I too have a Pipdig theme and have not the time to switch to a new one. So far so good, fingers crossed but that was truly nuts. The two things that really put me off blogging are 1) How IG has taken over and dominated everything, not a fan of this. 2) To be honest the behavior of other bloggers at times. When they forgo blogging to only do IG and when they pay it forward to themselves by only commenting back on IG comments and only commenting back to comments on their own blogs as opposed to returning to and reading the commenters blog. This alone is killing blogging…

    • That’s so true and I’m glad that you think so! It’s so hard to find another one. Totally with you on that, Instagram seems to have taken over. That’s a good point, it’s such a shame the way it’s all going xx

    • I’ve had some serious dry spells on my blog, but now feel the most positive and motivated I’ve been since I started. I re-evaluated why I was blogging in the first place and like you said removed the pressure from myself. Absence makes the heart grow fonder!

  3. Glad you found what works for you! I completely agree – reading other blogs is so inspiring and gives you a real push to get back at it yourself

  4. I think a new theme or even altering an existing theme can make you feel really excited to get back into blogging again as it feels fresh and new. Ah, your point about posting what you want really resonated with me. I often feel torn on whether I should just post whatever the hell I want or whether I should post what I want, but ensure I stick to a certain niche and not post random things. It’s hard because I hear conflicting advice about this and it seems like bloggers can be successful posting about whatever they want and just sticking to a niche. But, it’s great to hear you’ve got blogging into again – you have a lovely site!

    • That’s so true, a new theme can really help! I know what you mean about advice sticking to a niche, it’s a tough one, but in the end I went with what I’d prefer than pushing stuff I didn’t want to. Thank you so much!xx

  5. Yay I’m so glad you’re enjoying blogging again! I’ve started posting more of what I want now too rather than just sticking to what I’ve done in the past, or what I think people want to see, and I’m enjoying it so much more too. That goes for instagram aswell, I’ve made it more of a personal/blogging insta rather than strictly blogging and I get so much more enjoyment out of it xx

    • Thank you! I always love your posts, and posting what you want is a sure way to make sure you enjoy it. Same here, and it makes me so much more inclined to use it. I’m glad it’s worked for you xx

  6. I struggled a bit with blogging this summer and all of these things really helped me too! It’s amazing how taking pressure off yourself and posting what you want can make a big difference. I’m glad you’re loving blogging again!

  7. it’s great your blog break gave yo some clarity and motivation to blog again! I agree with having a simple blog theme – although mine is a lot more simple than yours, ha! I haven’t updated mine since I started blogging 6 years ago, haha!

    Hope that you are having a great weekend 🙂

  8. I know what you mean about feeling like you have to post about certain topics, sometimes I sit down and just stare at a blank page uninspired. I also have stopped doing this and just write about what I want to because if I don’t want to write it, how can I expect anyone to want to read it. It’s just more authentic to me and has made me enjoy blogging a lot more xx


  9. Great post! I went through the exact same thing – didn’t post on my blog for actual years due to time, feeling uninspired and felt like no one really bothered reading blogs anymore. I only recently started posting again this year after realising I don’t need to put any pressure on myself to stick to a schedule or one particular theme and just blog about what I want and enjoy!

    • Thank you! Ah no way, at least you’re back at it now. When you don’t put pressure on yourself things work out so much better. I’m glad you’re enjoying it again xx

  10. I’m so happy to hear you’ve fallen back in love with blogging! I think trying to box yourself into a niche can feel like a lot of pressure, and it’s so liberating for me to post what I truly want to post. I can’t wait to see the content you create in the future! xx


  11. Such simple tips but they really do add up and make you want to get your act together. I love reading blogs and poetry it really motivates me to write and make my voice heard. Thanks for sharing dear!

  12. Blogging shouldn’t be about pressure. It is something one should enjoy so that joy can also resonate to his readers. This post is insightful. Thank you for sharing your experience, Hannah!
