I’m at a point where i run my blog like a routine. I don’t really think about my posts that much. I just write them on the fly. Having a routine saves me a lot of time, but i feel like my blog is losing it’s edge. The energy of the blog has dropped. It’s only natural to experience lows, but i feel very dry with this blog. I’ve even thought about getting guest bloggers. I’m not a big fan of guest bloggers, but because of my dry spell, it got me thinking. I think the whole idea of making money online is very exciting. But, because i’ve developed a boring routine, it’s becoming a chore. It’s like i have a job. I don’t work the hours like a real job, but i’m starting to not want to go to work.
So today, i did something totally different. I didn’t work on my blog. I just posted a basketball post and watched the NBA finals. It’s like a mini vacation. When you don’t feel like blogging, don’t. Step away and do something away from your computer. Go hit the gym. Go to the bar. Hang out with some homegirls and homeboys. Blogging routines might save time, but don’t get sucked into them. Try to mix it up a little. After i finish this last sentence, i’m gonna go for a walk. I’m gonna get me a Chicago hotdog and rent me a DVD. I think i’ll turn in early. No blogging for me today.
I think i might reconsider my stance against guest bloggers. If any of you are interested in guest blogging on bloggernoob dot com, leave me a comment. I’ll hit you up.
