A Blogging Slump

Posted December 28, 2014 by Marsha in This one's a Keeper / 0 Comments

blue eyesI hate to admit to this – I really do, but I am in such a blogging slump lately.

Oh, I’m reading.  Maybe not as much but I am turning the pages of really good books.  I’m just not writing about the experience.

And I don’t know why.

I guess there really is no explanation for slumps… they just happen.  And I’m not alone either.  A lot of the book blogs that I follow are also experiencing slumps.  Whether it’s lack of time, life getting in the way of the fun of blogging or some other reason, writing slumps happen to every blogger that ever put words on the screen.

So.  What to do about it?  Forcing it won’t work, I’ve tried that before with dismal results.

While reading the comments on other blogs of other people in a similar slump the suggestions of reading for enjoyment only, switching to a different style of novel, blogging about something non-book for a while — but most importantly was the large number of statements suggesting  “don’t feel guilty, we all have slumps and eventually they go away”.

And that is exactly what I’m going to do.  I love this blog, I love talking about books that I’ve enjoyed, sharing authors that readers may not have tried yet — but no more guilt.

A new year is about to arrive, and the blogging slump will fade away.  Until it does I’m guilt-free about this situation I’m in…

And I’m wishing you a wonderful new year full of awesome reading adventures.

Talk again soon.
