Blogging Slump

Blogging slump well that's what I am calling it. I have just not been " feeling " my blog recently. I have hit a wall and am finding it hard to write anything at all. I was all excited as my blog went up a fair way on a ranking system, and it made me feel so pleased. So I was really full of energy to go even further the next month. I posted nearly daily and sent comments to lots of blogs and blog hops. I was sooooo keen I worked hard all month. So when the next list arrived i was so disappointed to find I had dropped down. WHAT !!! it made me mad because I had worked so hard to improve .

So this month its made me lose faith a little and I have run out of things to talk about. Then I read an item all about this subject ( which I see now is common) and how you may help to get out of it.
The first thing was to re connect with why you blog.

My niece is an excellent blogger and when she first told me all about it , I have to be honest and I couldn't understand why someone would do it at all. She helped set my blog up and for a while I didn't touch it. Then my son designed my header and Jollyjillys was really alive. I am not sure why I really carried on..... I love to write and when I saw people were reading and responding it made me go on. I have " met" so many nice friend online and I just wish I could really see them in person. I have learnt a lot and at times its been a steep learning curve. I am sure I still make loads of mistakes and there are time when I look at the blog and think ?????

I am sure that I will find my blog love again and i think it means relaxing and not being stressed about not writing. If I drop in the rankings so be it. After all I didn't start to be ranked, I never thought anyone would even read it let alone rank it lol.

So blogging slump or no blogging slump i will continue for a while yet !


  1. Hey Jill, we all get that feeling, its called losing your Mojo, but I'm sure you'll get it back. I follow loads and loads of blogs, but it doesn't bother me in the slightest if no-one reads mine, I write it for me. Hope you'll be feeling more positive soon,
    Joy xx

    1. Thanks joy I think all writers have a slump at times . I'm sure I will push on xx

  2. I think we all hit slumps. Mine came when I felt I HAD to blog. I finally realized, it's my blog and I can blog if I want to. That seemed to help out quite a bit. Now I just blog when I feel like it, and actually have the time to do it! Blogging should bring fun into our lives. So don't worry about it! We'll all still be around! :)


I am always delighted when people take time to leave me a comment...thanks so much
