You all know I feel a little disheartened at the moment. I'm not a negative person, however for the amount of work I put into my blog, sometimes it's hard not to sit on the fed-up fence when things are not going quite as planned. Like a guardian Angel, Laura came along with a pep talk and a few words of wisdom, so I'll hand you over to a few words spoken like a true pro.

Blogger’s fatigue is something I’ve been seeing a lot lately and experienced myself. With the spotlight currently on some of the bigger bloggers.  What used to be a hobby many of us hid from our friends, has now become a conversation piece. For some a legit career path. This has been over glamorised in the media making blogging look like an easy way to make money, encouraging more people to take up blogging; adding to an increasingly over saturated pool. Making it hard to stand out in the crowd.

When you read posts of blogging tips you’ll see a running theme; you get out what you put in. Blogging takes alot of time and effort. Taking pictures, writing the article and adding the necessary links. Producing new and unique content on a regular basis is no easy task. And when there is so much of it out there, it can be disheartening not to get any recognition for your efforts.


And try as hard as you might it is difficult not to compare yourself to other bloggers. Whether they are long established or newbies, seeing other people succeed where you are not can really knock your confidence. It almost feels like a competition sometimes. It’s not surprising you start to wonder why you bother. All your time and effort for nothing.

This happens to us all from time to time. We question our ability, our relevance and start to think we can’t write worth a damn. Take a step back and remember why you started blogging in the first place. Write about it if it helps. Take a break if you need to. Don’t let yourself get into a place that leaves you resenting your blog. Overtime time the readers will sort through the fakes and the phonies; letting those of us who blog for passion, not for fame come to the foreground. 

Does anyone else feel like this? Have you suffered from Blogger's fatigue? What are your top tips to stay motivated?
