Am I still milking my blogging break for content? Yes, yes I am. I stopped blogging consistently a while ago now, and with a number of failed attempts to get back into it, I think I’ve finally got it. I started posting again in July, and I’ve been loving keeping up with everything again. I’ve seen a lot of talk about people falling out of love with blogging, so I thought I’d share what helped me. I’m not saying this is a miracle cure, but it’s whats done it for me.
This is How I Fell Back in Love with Blogging!
Posting What I Want
I somehow found myself in a mindset that: ‘I am a beauty blog’. Which meant I felt iffy about posting other type of content. To be fair, It was mainly with Instagram, but it soon transferred to the blog too. Which didn’t do me any favours, and I’d constantly stress myself out about what to post. Now I post whatever I want, which it should’ve been from the beginning.
A New Theme
As much as I loved the theme I went with after the whole Pipdig fiasco it was too much work. Everything had to be put in manually, and I just didn’t have time to keep updating everything all of the time. Instead I’ve found a simple theme that suits me just fine. I’ve had no major issues, touch wood. Finding a theme that I liked was surprisingly motivating to get creating again.
No More Pressure
This is linked to the first one, as I always put so much pressure on myself to create a certain type of content. I’m terrible for putting too much pressure on myself, and it’s something I’m still trying to get better at. I know that if I don’t post on a certain day the only person who is going to be annoyed is me, and there’s no reason to be annoyed about it.
Reading Other Blogs
This isn’t me saying go ahead and copy everything you see, but reading other blogs can be motivating. For me it was like seeing others doing it really motivated me to get my act together, as I remembered how much I enjoyed it. I’ve also jumped on some popular posts that have been going around, like the Blogging Routine and Favourites posts.
That’s it! That is How I Fell Back in Love with Blogging!
