Book Blogger Confessions | 01.21.2013

mail

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.

Hosted by For What It’s Worth and Midnyte Reader. Check out the Book Blogger Confessions Schedule to see what topics are coming up.

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?

    I’ve just decided to go with the flow and not worry about it so much. I knew I was in trouble when I treated like a job so I keep reminding myself it’s a hobby and have fun with it.

      I do think we put pressure on ourselves to get more followers. It’s important to take a step back and remember what you said – it’s supposed to be a “fun way of sharing our love of reading.”
