We all have those periods when we just can’t find the motivation to blog. Wether it’s because we’re too busy, we have other things on our mind or simply because we’ve ran out of ideas, it happens to the best of us. But just because you don’t have the motivation to write a post, doesn’t mean you have to ignore your blog. So today I thought I would share a few ways to stay on top of your blog when you’re in a slump.
Take part in a twitter chat
A twitter chat can be a fun way to both motivate yourself and promote your blog. Whenever I’m in a slump I always make a special effort to take part in a chat, because talking to other bloggers and helping each other normally always helps to give me a bit of motivation. It’s also a great way to promote your blog and social media since you would normally end the chat by sharing your link with the chat.
Fix your broken links
We all hate fixing broken links. It’s a bit like cleaning our makeup brushes: we know it has to be done, but we keep putting off even though we know that will only make it worse. So if you find yourself staring at a blank screen when trying to write a post, why not instead fix those pesky broken links?
Tidy up old blog posts
As time goes on, all of our old posts become slightly dated. So when you find yourself unmotivated, it’s a great idea to tidy up old posts! Not only will this help you keep your blog fresh and up-to-date, it might even give you some inspiration for a new post.
Have a social media clear out
Lets be honest, over time we always end up following accounts that we really don’t have any interest in. And I always find that when my social media is clogged up with uninspiring accounts, it has an effect on my mindset. So go through your social media accounts and get rid of any negative or uninspiring accounts.
Reply to your emails
I can’t be the only blogger out there who is terrible at replying to emails. And it’s not even like I get that many to begin with, but when I’m working 42 hours a week, emails just tend to take a backseat when it comes to my blog. So when you’re not in the mood to write, it is the perfect opportunity to do all that admin you’ve put off.
