I’ve been in the worst blogging slump this past month. I remember back in the good old days (aka June) when I was scheduling five posts a week like a boss.
But that volume of posting has decreased slowly month by month until this point right now, when I’m struggling to get three posts up a week. Where did that motivation go?! Now I’m just like a slug, slugging along in my slug bed while I stare absently at my piles of unread books that I don’t want to go near with a ten-foot pole.
So part of it is that I’m also in a reading slump. Nothing seems to appeal to me right now. Contemporaries are boring me, I don’t want to get sucked in to another series when I’m juggling so many already, and also fall tv started so all I want to do is watch tv. Also I just finished watching all of the Supernatural seasons that are on Netflix and Supernatural now consumes my every thought and I feel like I’m just waiting for them to stream season 8 so I can catch up and watch season 9 live. But that’s a totally different story.
I’ve reached that point in my blogging where it seems like every review or TTT I do is saying the same thing over and over again. So when it comes time to write a review or scroll through my Goodreads shelves, I have no interest in doing it. Writing a review for me right now is like trying to lead a camel through an office building on a day that isn’t Wednesday. It just feels impossible and annoying and all I want to do is whine about it. Writing reviews isn’t supposed to be this hard, but I open up WordPress and I look at the screen and I’m just like
Then there’s the fact that I have a bunch of ideas for other kinds of posts, but I start to write something and give up after a few sentences because I’m just not feeling it. The words just aren’t there even though I know I have things to say.
So in conclusion, blogging slumps are the worst. I know I sound like a whiny brat in this post, but I just needed to use some gifs to express my emotions.
Let’s chat! Do you get bogged down by blogging slumps? Or do you power through and write anyway no matter how hard it is? What do you do to get over it?
