In today’s article, we are going to discuss 5 Epic Tips to Overcome Blogger Burnout.
If you’ve been blogging for a while or you are a blogging newbie, there may have been a time when you’ve experienced burnout.
You may have been pumping out articles but you’re not seeing the results you desire or your brain is just becoming overwhelmed with anxiety because it seems that your fellow bloggers are so much farther ahead of you.
We’ve all been there and if you haven’t experienced burnout yet, count your lucky stars because it will one day happen to you.
The good news is that there are ways to beat burnout and get back on track with your blogging journey.
So without further delay, let’s dive into 5 Epic Tips to Overcome Blogger Burnout.
Stop Writing for a Few Days
If you are feeling burned out, tired or fatigued from publishing content on a consistent non-stop basis, it’s probably wise that you stop writing for a few days.
There will absolutely be days when you don’t want to pick up your pen/pencil to write your rough draft…
There will be times when you don’t want to log into your WordPress dashboard to type out a blog post.
I totally understand the feeling…
The best advice I can give you to deal with these feelings is to take a break from writing and do something you enjoy.
Go out to see a movie, meetup with friends & family, take a short trip, basically do anything else but blog, lol.
When you get your mind off of blogging you are actually recharging your batteries and refresh your mind.
When you come back to blogging your mind will be completely refreshed and you will be surprised on how much new ideas you come up with.
So don’t be afraid to leave your blog for a few days. It’s not going to run away or disappear from the internet.
Understand it’s not a Race
I want you to understand and drive it hard in your head that blogging is not a race.
As a matter of fact, look in the mirror and say this phrase to yourself at least 5 times.
“Blogging is not a Race.”
Finished? Good 🙂
The only thing that matters when it comes to blogging is how much information and how much value you can provide your readers.
It’s not about how many blog posts you can publish in a week.
The bloggers who publish blog posts 5 times a week more then usually get burned out and quit. Not too mention their content probably sucks because they are not putting too much time & effort to make a kick-ass article.
The bloggers who publish once, twice, or even 3 times a week will be around for the long-haul because they usually take their time to make quality content.
Take your time to make good, high-quality articles. It will only benefit you in the long run.
Talk with Other Bloggers
Networking and hanging out with other bloggers will help you to overcome burnout.
Having someone to vent to that speaks your “language” can help you to replenish your energy and clear your stress.
By talking with other bloggers you will be able to bounce ideas off one another, share your struggles & victories and motivate each other to keep pushing forward.
If you don’t know where to meet other bloggers, try to attend conferences, join Facebook groups related to blogging, follow & interact with bloggers on Twitter, and attend Meetups.
Stop Comparing Yourself
Stop comparing yourself to other bloggers. It’s literally robbing you of your mental & creative energy.
The time you are using comparing yourself to others can be better spent working on your blog.
You may have self-doubts about yourself because you are not at the level of more experienced bloggers, but you must remember your journey is yours alone to walk.
You have your own obstacles to deal with, just like everyone else.
Besides, you have no idea what other people you compare yourself with have been through to get where they are today.
So focus more on yourself rather then on other people.
You will thank yourself later.
Appreciate How Far You’ve Come in Your Journey
Give yourself credit. You are doing something which 99% of the people in this world are not doing.
You took action and actually launched your blog.
You may not be getting the traffic and pageviews you desire, but you are making progress every day.
Some progress is better than no progress at all.
It’s time you start appreciating how far you’ve come in your journey because trust me, there is someone looking up to you wishing that they were in your shoes.
In closing, following these tips will help you to overcome blogger burnout.
