Book Blogger Confessions is a meme that posts the 1st and 3rd Monday of every month, where book bloggers “confess” and vent about topics that are unique to us. Feel free to share, vent and offer solutions.
Today’s Topic: We’ve discussed blogging slumps before but have you ever seriously considered throwing in the towel and quitting blogging? If so, what changed your mind? Did you discuss it with other bloggers?
Oof. Okay, prompt, I get it – I’ve been a bit behind lately! Stop sipping on the Haterade (Do people still say that? I mean, people other than me? Le sigh).
Honestly, I blog for me as much as I do for followers. A few folks have told me they enjoy my blog, and that’s great – but I like having a “safe” place to write my thoughts on literature, putting pen to paper (or more accurately, fingertips to keyboard?), and life. I am trying to build a platform to showcase my writing, and I’ve definitely had slumps – last week I missed a few features. However, I’ve never wanted to throw in the towel and quit altogether.
This year, I am making a more concerted effort to blog more consistently and offer unique content to my followers. Hopefully, those slumps will be fewer and more far between!
Any other book bloggers out there? What do you do to prevent slumps when they come on?
