The reality of taking a break from blogging is alarming to say the least. Sometimes it’s necessary to shut off from technology or worse yet your brain shuts off and the words no longer flow. You are stuck in a square that most know as writers block and it’s a tough place to be. I notice when I am blogging two or three times a day my stats are booming, at least according to WordPress but the amount of time and effort it takes to build my readers back up is exhausting. Do we really write for the readers? Probably not but each time your number of reads goes up, it’s motivation to write some more. Of course there are always those loyal followers that read my writing no matter what and I am very grateful for them. They are my rock and help me stay grounded on this journey of writing.
What do you do to get motivated after a temporary writing break? How do you muddle your way through that dreaded period of writers block? I’m sure your suggestions would be appreciated by all.
