Blogging RutYou know the scenario:

You have a blog and have been working hard, yet unlike the success stories that you hear, things are not looking good from your end.

Countless hours of blogging and implementing marketing strategies is not giving you the results you want.

Suddenly, you don’t feel motivated at all. There’s no doubt about it – you’re stuck in a blogging rut. You feel frustrated, and yes, you feel like giving up.

Not so fast.

Perhaps, it’s just time to take one step back, reassess, see what went wrong, make some improvements, and start fresh. Start by asking yourself these questions:

  • Do you offer quality content, something new and relevant that your customers find useful?
  • Does it seem like you are obviously advertising your products and services all the time?
  • Do you maintain a newsletter but get a few sign ups?
  • Do you always run out of ideas?
  • Are you making trial-and-error approaches based on snippets of information that you’ve read somewhere and not getting expert help?

Don’t fret. I found 2 helpful tools to help you get back on track, and give you ideas on how to get out of the blogging rut:

#1. Zac Johnson’s Six Figure Affiliate Blogging

If you want to have a step-by-step guide to the process of creating a profitable blog or website, this is the go-to report. Download it here, it’s completely free!

#2. Online Profits

If you want to have valuable information on growing your readership and learn how to make money online, this is a must-read. The lessons in the Online Profits training program have been produced by experts from different fields and specializations!

There’s no need to devour these reports right away, because maybe, all you need is a break. I know, because I’ve been there too. When you’re stuck in a blogging rut and your motivation is waning, take a short break and do the things that you enjoy and love. I recently read a very inspiring blogpost on “Time To Take A Break…” written by Ilka Flood, webmaster of The Enlightened Networker.

Take some time off and think about why you started your blog in the first place. When you’re ready and refreshed, schedule certain times within your week to read these reports for inspiration. You may just realize how much blogging meant to you in the beginning!

  1. Hi Ilka,

    Thanks for the compliment, I’m glad you like the post!

    I’ve read your last post before you took a break, and I was one of the many people who encouraged you to do it… NOT because I like to see you go for a while (because I like your posts), but because of the fact you just mentioned above… unless you take a break once in a while you never notice the clutter in your (business) life that you really don’t need…!

    Anyway, I’m glad you are back! 🙂

    Success, Elmar

  2. I every journey to success, there will come a time when things don’t seem to work. The important thing to remember is to never give up and learn along the way, this is how the successful one have done it. 🙂

  3. Hi Elmar,

    Great resources you’re giving away in this post!

    Ilka’s post was really good, and it’s healthy to take a break when one is needed. Never hurts to re-evaluate why you’re doing something, and then jump back on with more drive than ever before.

    Thanks for such a valuable post!

  4. Hi Susanna,

    Thanks for the compliment!

    You’re right, when you continue working – working – working, without taking a break now and then, chances are high you loose the connection with the larger picture and with your goals. Taking a break and re-evaluate is what you need to do then.

    Thanks for your great comment! 🙂
