My blog about blogging

Having recently completed the Blog Every Day in May challenge (very proud) I have been inspired to keep putting lots of effort into my blogging but I struggle sometimes.

Some days I can write down loads of ideas for blog posts and some days I don’t write any.
Sometime I go to these notes and don’t actually want to write any of those posts!
Some days I write loads of posts in full, some days some half posts and other days I just can’t write any.
Today is a good day, I have written loads! :)
But I can’t work out what in particular changes my mind set. I’m sure my job pays a huge part, if I have been really busy or stressed I won’t be able to concentrate on blogging, I just need to switch off my mind. But how come on some days I want to be a fantastic blogger and write loads of fun posts which my readers will love and then on other days feel a bit ‘meh’ about the whole thing?
Is feeling ‘meh’ occasionally ok?
I also second guess myself when it comes to ideas for posts. I can have the idea…start the post…and then when it comes to finishing and posting it, I just think – ‘Na thats rubbish’, ‘People won’t want to read that!’.
I am going to assume all bloggers go through these things…so if so…what do you do when you are lacking your blogging mojo? Any tips for becoming a consistent blogger? If you like a subject enough to write about it, should you just trust that someone else will like it enough to read it?
Fingers crossed that making the effort to read lots of posts and comment on them while doing the June Comments Challenge, will encourage me to keep going!

    This post could have been written about me… I just try to schedule as many posts as humanly possible on my good days, and that gives me a bit of time off on the ‘meh’ days. Don’t tell anyone but I find the most consistent bloggers to be the most dull… you have to be enthusiastic about what you’re writing about or your readers won’t be, and nobody can be enthusiastic all the time!

      I am trying to get into the habit of scheduling posts more now on the days I am inspired. That also means that I won’t as easily change my mind about posting them!

    Yes! Everyone second-guesses themselves at some point. But I think you should publish things anyway. You don’t know that nobody will read it unless you publish it. Some of my most surprising ‘hit’s on my blog have been the ones that I didn’t think anyone would care to read.

      Thanks, good to hear everyone thinks these things and your right I should just go for it! :)

    Yup, I feel ‘meh’ sometimes – and when I don’t want to blog, I don’t. End of. No point in posting of my hearts not in it! Xo

      Your right! I thinking forcing it would take the fun out of it too!
