10 Things to To Do When You Lose Blogging


Other times though when it’s hard.  Awkward.  Perhaps you feel like you’ve become a stranger on your own blog.  Or that there’s nothing more  you can add to the words that pour out into the blogosphere, day after busy posting day.

Perhaps it starts to feel like you’re losing, or have lost, your blogging.

2. Give yourself permission to be quiet

You’re feeling like this for a reason.  Give yourself the time and space to reflect, be quiet, work things out.

3. Remember it’s part of blogging

As some of you have reminded me before, the relationship we have with blogging is fluid, dynamic.  It changes over time. …
