The Blogger Wall: What do you do when you hit a blogging slump?

So what do I do when I hit a blogging slump??  Well I don't post much for one thing.  Usually my blogging slumps and reading slumps go hand in hand.  I don't have posts back-logged, so if I'm not reading, I'm not posting reviews.  Other than that, I've been lucky that I've been blogging for over a year and a half and haven't gotten burnt out on it at all really.  Ok yes sometimes when it's 1 AM and I'm sleepy and I'm STILL working on a blog tour post that I promised would be up the next morning, I'm not a happy camper.  My back is all stiff and my eyeballs feel like they're going to bleed.  I just want to say hell with it... but something keeps me going.  I like to keep my word... that's important to me, so I push through it.  

I think I have a similar philosophy about my blog in general.  I feel like it's a commitment that I've made to myself to keep doing it, so I do.  And also I really really like doing it, so it's not a conflict at all.  I've seen a lot of bloggers get into slumps (this summer especially)... most of them seem to try to change things up to give themselves a jolt.  If I ever go through a serious blogging slump maybe that's what I'll do.  Or maybe I'll just take a few weeks off.  Nothing wrong with that!

So what do you think?  Have you ever been in a serious blogging slump?  Did you quit for a while or just work through it?  I'd love to hear your experiences!

Link up if you want to post :)


  1. Oh, you lucky duck! No blogging slump. Sigh. I hope you never experience one!

  2. When I got pregnant last year I hit a MAJOR blogging slump, I felt horrible and by the time I got home from work I was exhausted. During that time I quit blogging for about 6 months, I started back during the 6 weeks I was on maternity leave. Hopefully, I won't go through another one because blogging is something I truly enjoy doing.

    Great topic!
