Sometimes I get really bored of my blog.  I can't figure out why it happens (so as to be better able to anticipate my next streak).  When I took my little blog-vacation in October I was just feeling so disinterested; I had a lot going on in my personal, off-line life, but I also felt like I didn't have anything interesting to write about.  I'm willing to blame part of this on the fact that my blog is kind of mish-mash, with no real, definable topic, but then I feel like that should keep my attention longer.

I'm feeling kind of bored of it right now.  Which is bad, since I just made a year-long commitment to it by becoming self-hosted.  Rosaline of  {this is glamorous} still uses Blogger, even though her blog is huugely popular - more popular than I could ever even dream of The Princess and the P being.  Maybe I should have stayed on WP so I wouldn't feel guilty about getting bored.

Bloggers, does this ever happen to you?  Any remedies/suggestions?


  1. It does happen to me. And when it does I just do my best to wait it out. I don't want to force anything and eventually something always comes along :]

  2. That's happened to me too. I've had my blog for a year and a half, if you can even believe it! I only started seriously blogging in mid-September. I went in spurts for a while, because I didn't feel like I had much to say.

    It really wasn't until I figured out why I was blogging that I began to really enjoy it, do it a LOT, and not think of it as work. I'm blogging because it makes me step out of my comfort zone, makes me more active in my community, and allows me to learn and share food knowledge with all kinds of wonderful people. I'm also blogging because I love taking photos!

    It does help that I have a niche, but I don't think you necessarily need one. I agree with Monica...if you're not feeling it right now, then stop. When the time is right, you'll pick it back up.

  3. thanks ladies. it makes me feel sooo much better to know that I'm not the only one who feels like this!
