♡ Getting out of a blogging slump ♡

January 27, 2019

 There’s no avoiding how hard it is to get out of a blogging slump. We’ve all had them and they’re one of the worst things when blogging is such an enjoyable hobbie yet when you’re in a place where you don’t want to do it is so sad.

 This happens to everyone though - sometimes they last a day, a week or even a month and getting out of them seems impossible when you don’t even know how you got in them. I know I struggle so much as not wanting to blog hurts so I want to do as much as I can to help people get out them as well.


 It’s so important to not force yourself to write as when you don’t enjoy writing yet you force yourself to do it the posts are not enjoyable. I know you can tell in a post if there is no passion, but just knowing I didn’t wanna write that makes me feel as if I’ve faked it and I hate it. Blogging is all about enjoying it and doing it because you want to so forcing yourself to write causes the real reason of blogging to go.

Knowing this puts me off even thinking about writing so I do wait until I want to. I find if you don’t wanna write, try planning posts. For me knowing what I’m going to write motivates me and makes me want to write as I can see the posts direction and what it’ll be about, I get so excited. This makes me want to write the posts then and nearly every time it works. I think knowing what you’re writing gives you that motivation in itself as you know what you’re doing Blogging isn’t all about the writing. I can get motivation by taking some pretty flatlays, thinking of new goals or just reading other people’s posts.

 Anything blogging related can help lift the slump and it’s so refreshing just wanting to do it again after. I find planning photos to be so fun as the pretty flatlays makes me want to write posts to share with people so I end up wanting to blog and gaining my motivation in a backwards way. I always plan too so it helps this process.

 I hate these slumps as much as everyone does! Trying to get out them is so hard but I’m so glad once they’re gone because being excited to blog is amazing and so rewarding I love doing it more then anything. It’s best that get back in the swing, but I hope my tips help that was it’s not fun at all but so relieving when you’re out of it.

  1. the last 6 months have been a tough blogging time for me. I was in a little bit of a reading slump, but a HUGE blogging slump. I wanted to interact with other bloggers and see what they were up to, but I was losing steam to post my own posts. I've got some ideas for some easy memes for 2019 that will at least get me back into regular posting in some way.

  3. Great post! I find planning various posts really helpful in getting me back motivated to writing. I think it always helps to have posts already scheduled or saved in drafts for those occasions where the word aren't coming. (Not that I am ever organised to do this 🙈)
    Lovely post!

  6. This is so helpful, thanks for sharing! I sometimes have really productive days when I'll write a post and have it scheduled within a few hours, and other times I don't want to write at all. I know exactly what you mean about not wanting to force yourself to write - I've learnt this lately. I'm always anxious that my posts (when I'm in a slump) will lack the passion and motivation in other posts. Taking blog photos is such a great motivator! x

  8. I hate blogging slumps so much. I get into them so often as well! Whenever I can't write a post, I read other people's blogs :) It helps me to get into the swing of things.

    Thanks for the post x

  9. I went into this slump last year and couldn't come up with a single post for the last three months. I utilized the time by reading a lot and working on writing prompts. Once I again started writing after the slump, it felt so good. Thanks for sharing the post.
