Question: Do you get blogger burnout? And if so, how do you deal with it?
Answer: Yes! I totally get it. I don’t think it’s very obvious on the blog though because I schedule things so far in advance. But right now, for instance, I have only two posts ready for the upcoming month. Blogger burnout is direct result from reading burnout, for me. I’ve been reading, but it’s been slow. There’s been a lot going on in my non-blogging life so most reading and blogging has taken a back seat.
What do I do?
Today, I’m going to pick up a book that isn’t a review book. I’m going to read a book that I want to read RIGHT NOW.
I go read other people’s blogs and comment. I like seeing what other people are reading/blogging about. One of the reasons I love blogging is meeting new friends and sharing stories and opinions.
And I’m going to do something fun outside. Computer time is really challenging for me. I am in front of a computer for my full time job so the last thing I want to do is sit there again all weekend. I am going to go outside, read outside, run around like a crazy person, get some fresh air. Maybe watch a movie. Do different things!
Only then do I usually feel better and I can go back to blogging. It’s all about balance.
