And isn't that true of any week or month? Which leads me to today's topic...how NOT to burn out. I can't say I'm any expert at this, and there's probably something you should know.
Everyone burns out to some extent...eventually.
It's what you do in the face of blogger burnout that matters.
- Take a week, or a month, or three off
- Stop reading and binge-watch TV shows
- Only read comics
- Pet your dog or cat
- Develop a Snapchat addiction (ahem!)
Dealing with blogger burnout is completely personal. Maybe you want to quit blogging completely. Maybe you'll find that if you take a break you miss it so much that you have to come charging back.
The most important thing is to NOT FREAK OUT. Take it in stride as best you can, whine to your best blogging buddies if you need to, and ride that shit out. There is life and reading and writing and Tweeting and Instagramming during and after blogger burnout. I even remember once when I had "stuff week" because I wanted to write, but I didn't want to write about books. I wrote about sustainable food instead. Makeup. Shoes. Home decor. Life stuff.
Burned out or not, I hope you can feel enough warm fuzzy love in weeks like this one to believe that blogging is worthwhile in some capacity. It's whatever you make of it for yourself.
