Dearest blogging friends,
It's a struggle to write this post today. Why? Because I am in a blogging slump. A slump for the ages. Anyone who follows my blog knows I haven't posted in a few weeks. Why? Not because I haven't been reading (I have been) and not because I haven't had the time (I have) but because...I don't feel like it. I haven't even been keeping up with the books I've read by marking them in Goodreads, and that takes like three seconds. I haven't even looked at my blog dashboard in weeks.
Which I suppose I'm entitled to, because it's not like I'm getting paid for blogging. But I have followers, and I have a responsibility to them. But for whatever reason, I just can't get myself to sit down and write.
What's really dumb about it is that when I do write, I remember how much I enjoy it. I wrote a review of a website for a tech blog I'm helping get off the ground, and I had FUN doing it! I thought, "Hey, maybe now I'll be out of my slump." Buuuuuuut I'm not.
My question to you is this: What do you do to get out of your writing slumps? Do you just bully yourself into doing it because you know you should? Or do you just wait for it to pass? I've done both in the past and I guess they have an equal amount of effectiveness, but this time I kind of feel like just waiting it out because as you can tell from this post, I don't write well when writing is something that I don't really feel like doing.
Anyway, any ideas or tips you have, my lovely fellow bloggers, leave them here! And keep your fingers crossed I get out of this slump soon... :)
