Blogging Slump Woes...

 I'm feeling a little lost and fed up right now.
A year and a half ago when I started this blog I threw myself into it reviewing books, participating in memes and excitedly watching my follower count slowly but then steadily rise. I loved everything about it from making new friends, reading new and different books and just discussing books and reading in general with similar minded people; with readers and bookworms. So it's a bit of pain really for me to have to admit that I'm in a proper blogging slump. I really don't have the will or wish to blog right now. Why? Well I haven't really blogged properly in about two months especially the last month as I have been super busy and been abroad etc. And now I'm back I feel like I've missed so much, have fallen behind and just don't know what I'm really doing right now. I have a trillion reviews to write but because I know I have to write them I feel no wish to do so. I also feel that my posts are being seen by no one. This isn't me moaning that I want more followers, not in the slightest. But I put up posts and they are barely viewed and I feel like sometimes, what is the point? What is the point in writing up a thousand and one reviews for a handful of people to see. I know I started this blog for myself, for fun and my own enjoyment but it's nice to know that someone is looking. Maybe I have a touch of the green eyed monster when I see others doing so well on their blogs. I don't really now. I just feel like I don't have the energy to pour into something like this right now. But the problem is; I want to. I know I've probably confused you right now but I really want to blog. I really want to write reviews and interesting fun posts. Why is it so hard to do though?! I have been toying with the idea of starting up a booktubing channel as it seems so much easier to talk about books rather than writing about them. But I'd need to get the equipment and stuff so I'm a little unsure at the moment. I just need a little bit of inspiration and maybe a little nudge and a kick up the bum. Help!


  1. Awh, that sucks Becca! It's a shame that you've lost your fun in reviewing, so it might be a good idea to at least incorporate some vlogs on your blog? You can always start with just a simple webcam to see how you like it? :)

  2. I wrote a blog post similar to this but haven't published it yet. Ugh, I feel you, love. *hugs*

  3. :( I know how you feel; sometimes I wonder why I even bother, but lately I saw a rise on my blog visits and it gave me more energy. :) I hope you get over the slump and start enjoying the blogging once again.
    Try with blogging about stuff that's under the spotlight at the moment, like TMI movie coming out etc. ;)
    I suggest you visit other blogs, comment, and add links back to your own blog. I know I always pay a visit back when someone stops by my blog. Maybe it can help boost your visits as well!

  4. I am in the same boat right now. I even tried the vlog thing and didn't see a difference. I am thinking of changing the theme of my blog and what I write about and see if that helps. It seems, people aren't as interested in reviews or "writing blogs" like before. I have seen a steady decline in the past year. Sad, but true. =(

  5. I like reading your blog!! Keep going :). Perhaps to increase comments just visit more blogs or something xx
