When the blogging lull hits

It hits hard! My regular readers have noticed I'm not posting quite as frequently as I usually do. I'm experiencing one of those blogging lull's. I'm not really accomplishing anything else. I'd love to say that I've been focused on my writing. Instead, life has just been taking up my time.

We've had some out of town trips, some major snow falls, and some family nights out. It all equals less time for me to think about the blog.

So, what do you do when you have a blogging lull? What is usually the biggest factor that takes your time?

I figured you were in a funk 'cause you've even been quiet via e-mail.

We all go through these periods. (I have a folder marked "blog queue" for mine, so I shouldn't run out of material) Find something that refreshes you and all will be well again.

Miss ya...

If I'm stuck in a blogging lull I'm usually goofing off playing games or spending time with the family. I don't really do anything constructive during my lull, unless making 3 lasagna's counts as creative. :)

That's one of the advantages to being an absurdist goofball; I can always conjure up something to write about LOL

Yep, my lulls are caused by laziness or just general malaise. I have a file of blog ideas too, but I'm likely to just do something short and sweet.

I think it's the retrograde. I'm never particularly creative during one, I know.

Oh, and I count three lasagnas as creative. I love to cook.

When I have a blogging lull...I go with it. I read other sites, I read books, I check out some of my favorite sources for links, but I don't post just because I feel like I should. I'll try and post at least once every week or so, just so that a) I don't forget my password (ask me how many times *that's* happened); b) people and search engines keep seeing new content on my site; and c) I don't completely forget about the site. Though I've done that a few times.

The blog is there for me, not the other way around. It's my canvas, it's my mental scratchpad, it's my release valve, it's my relaxation, it's my soapbox. I do not exist to serve it. As long as I keep that in mind, I don't ever get to the point of actively hating the site.

The only thing that rips me away from my computer (both blogging and writing) is a really good book. If I'm into an excellent story, I ignore everything -- sometimes even my kids! -- until the last page is read.

Blogging lull is natural among bloggers and there is nothing really to worry about because it's normal (not unless the passion for blogging is dying). I have research papers on blogging and the whole blogosphere and it's blogging lull is just a phase. It can be overcome by unwinding or by doing great things that will relax but at the same time, refresh and exercise the mind.
