8 ways to deal with blogging burnout.

Hey readers,


As a blogger, it can be overwhelming at times. It can be relentless because if you want to be present in the blogging world you have to keep at it and stay up to date. 


There is a lot of things you need to do other than writing blog posts. Yes, I am not a professional blogger but of course, I want people to read my work hence why it is out there in the public domain.

It all takes time as you need to share your work through social media and keeping them social media channels updated so you don't get lost in the noisy blogging world. 

At times it can be relentless and you lose focus on why you are doing the whole blogging business. It can be overwhelming especially when you have other things going on in your life. 

Sometimes, I experience burnout where I have done to much focus on blogging that just needs a break and refocuses on what I am doing as a blogger.

So, here are some tips to help avoid blogger burnout and keep you motivated to carry on blogging. 


1. Time out.

Take time away from blogging and give yourself a chance to clear your head from the noises regarding blogging.

 A change of scenery can really help bring back focus to think about what it is your doing and why. 

2. Organisation. 

Have a calendar and plan what to do on each day so you don't feel overwhelmed. This gives you back control and helps keep things clearer in your mind as to what you are doing. 

3. Delegate.

A key skill as a blogger is to learn that not everything can be done in one. To learn to delegate the less important tasks for another day is something really essential to master as a blogger. Let's face it Rome wasn't built in a day. 

4. No!

It's ok to say no because at the end of the day it is your blog and your choices. If you don't want to do something then don't it is as simple as that.

 I think with time as a blogger you grow with confidence and learn that you have a voice and you can use it. 

Remember at the end of the day it is your blog and you can do whatever you want with it, that is the beauty of blogging.

5. Rountine.

 I am a sucker for a routine because it gives me a rhythm to go about doing my blogging work.  

I always start my week with the goals that I want to do such as write x blog posts a week, sharing the content, using blog linkies and comments, etc.

Then I go on to assign the tasks to specific days so it doesn't overwhelm me. 

I have for me personally having this blog rhythm makes me feel in control as I know what to expect and do on certain days. It almost becomes second nature and it is like my brain is prepared to go forth and crack on. 

6. Offline.

Spending time with people who don't care about blogging gives you that break from constantly thinking about blogging. 

7. The Begining.

If you are finding you feel lost with blogging and not know where to go, go back to the beginning when you started blogging and remind your self why you started and how you felt. 

8. Comparing. 

I know it is natural to compare yourself to others but this is one of the worst things you can do as a blogger.

Remember this is your blogging journey and only you can walk down this road. You can't be on someone else's road as it is there journey and everyone goes to their destination different. 

If your struggling then a good idea is to write down your achievements that you have done as a blogger. Remember slow and steady wins the race.

  4. I think the best thing is remembering why you started in the first place. For me, if I'm struggling for something to write, I simply don't. Writing for the sake of posting content is a big no, no for me. I'd rather take a break and then write something which at least means something to me. And absolutely agree with not drawing comparisons! x
