Blogging isn’t as easy as some people may think that it is, see my post on the truth about blogging for more, and along with this comes the challenge of staying motivated to blog. If you’re feeling unmotivated with your blog at the moment, then carry on reading for some tips on staying motivated with your blog.

Don’t blog for the wrong reasons

In order to stay motivated when you’re starting out with a blog, you need to be blogging for the right reasons. Blog because you want to have a passion for writing, or because you’re passionate about a certain niche, or whatever your reason might be to blog. Don’t blog for the money or for the free gifts, because these types of things don’t happen overnight. You need to put in the hard work in order to build your blog to be successful.

Don’t compare yourself to other bloggers

Comparing yourself to other bloggers can be so demotivating and it’s exactly why you shouldn’t do it. Comparing yourself to others is probably one of the worst things that you can do. If you’re struggling with this then I would suggest taking a break from social media for however long you need to!

Blog for yourself rather than others

If you write the content that you want to write and not the content that others want to read, you’re more likely to enjoy what you’re writing. It’s important to enjoy yourself whilst blogging and to write the content that you want to write. Just have fun with your blog because at the end of the day it’s you that’s in control of your blog.

Join blogging groups

Whether that be a blogging group on Facebook, a twitter group chat, or a Pinterest group board, I would definitely recommend joining blogging groups in order to stay motivated with your blog! By joining a blogging group you can make friends with fellow bloggers and this is a great way to support and motivate one another!

Promote your new and old content

One reason why bloggers can become demotivated is that of stats. You may not be seeing the results on your blog as you had hoped for, even after putting a lot of time and effort into a blog post. To combat this, promote your posts (both new and old content) on your social media accounts, whether that be Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, etc. This will help your content to be exposed to more people and will help to grow your blog.

  1. I really appreciated these tips! I’ve been up and down with my own blog many times since its creation years ago. My biggest one is allowing myself to compare and then believe my content isn’t A) as good, or B) interesting to anyone at all. Lately, though, I’ve been writing whatever I want regardless of potential views and am loving it! So let’s hope I can keep that going. Thank you for sharing!

  2. I’m currently struggling to find the motivation to write some blogposts, so I really needed to see this post right now! Sometimes it’s easy to get distracted by the stats and the whole social media side of blogging rather than just writing because you want to.

  3. These are great tips Ashleigh! I agree, comparing ourselves to others is the worst thing and so de-motivating at times. That is such a good point about writing about the things we like. I think as long as we blog about what we are interesting in, our passion and enthusiasm shines through. Like you say, just have fun, that is the most important thing! Thanks for sharing lovely! ❤ xx
