Random Thoughts: Going on a Blog Holiday until the 28th July

Posted July 18, 2016 by Charlotte in Random Thoughts / 2 Comments

So I’ve run out of posts to write. Ok not to write I just haven’t written any posts in a while. And I think that the lack of posts last week says it all.

So I decided rather than stressing. I’m just going take a blog holiday until the 28th July (when I have a promised post for a publisher to go up) and hopefully in August I will have posts scheduled left, right and centre and just feeling more prepared.

Blogging for me has become hard recently I started a new job which is a proper full-time job, so I have less time for blogging and my job is an hour and a half away from where I live. So I’m a bit knackered at the end of the day to turn the computer on and type.

This is why I’ve said enough. My blog is my hobby not my job and however much I want it, no matter how much I try until I get ahead I’ll always be struggling and losing faith in blogging.

Because blogging is becoming a chore at the moment. Not something I enjoy and definitely not something I really want to do in my free time (although I do want to do it. Angst!)

It is official. I am struggling to blog. Or perhaps more appropriately I am struggling to prep posts for December. It has got to the stage now, where I have no pre-prepared posts, nothing that I can quickly write-up.

Perhaps this is a blogging slump like before, perhaps this is me being unorganised. Whatever the reason though, the best way to get out it is to start again. Maybe from August onwards I’ll be a little more organised…

So the question is how do you get out of a Blogging Slump? Have you ever taken a blog holiday? Is there any hints and tips? Please let me know!

    I’m currently in the same boat as you – struggling to find the time and the content to write about with my blog, but I love having it, so I hope to keep it up. Taking a break should definitely help, and hopefully you’ll have lots to talk about when you get back. But I think my tip, is not to go back into it full force – maybe if you have a lot of posts written, to still space them out and decrease how many posts you put up a week, for when life things catch up to you. 🙂

    Have fun during your break!

    • Thanks it gave me a lot to think about and some much needed time out of blogging. I decided to try and focus on a couple of posts a week and spread my posts out as much as I can. Hopefully this will keep me on top of things!
