Sometimes it doesn’t matter what you do, you hit that wall. We’ve all been there where bloggersblock has struck and sometimes it’s hard to push through it. Well I’m here to tell you that giving up shouldn’t be an option. You’ve already worked so hard! So here’s 6 reasons why you should keep blogging.
You enjoy it
Ultimately you wouldn’t have put any time or effort into your blog already if you didn’t have a love and passion for it. We don’t often find ourselves with spare time but we somehow find the time to write a post. There’s no point wasting that effort now and it’s a great feeling having a hobby. It’s special to you for a reason.
It’s a great distraction
I don’t know about you but blogging has always been a great way to distract myself when I’m feeling stressed. Focusing all your attention on writing a post or editing photos can be surprisingly useful when it comes to giving your brain a needed break. Plus it’s productive and you will feel so much better for it.
This may not even have crossed your mind because it sounds odd telling yourself that you have helped someone through your blogging but think about it. Whether you’ve shared a product review, a tips post or just shared a memory, odds are you’ve helped your reader in some way. Readers come to your blog for a reason and they appreciate the advice, inspiration and distraction your blog gives.
You learn new skills
From photo editing to SEO there’s countless skills you learn through blogging and you probably haven’t even given them a second thought. It’s amazing how much you learn when your trying to push your blog to the next level. Not bad for “just a hobby” right?
It could become something more
Well that point leads me perfectly onto this one. There’s nothing wrong with looking at your blog as more than just a hobby. For me personally I would love to grow my blog into something a bit more financially stable and it’s not like it hasn’t been done by other bloggers before. So don’t feel guilty for looking at your blog as a potential career. If anything it may just give you more motivation.
The biggest and perhaps best point is this one. Your blog is completely yours, it’s your space to share whatever you want and be as creative as you want. Isn’t that pretty cool? Having a creative outlet was the main reason I started Thimbles and Spoons and now I couldn’t imagine being without it.
