BBN Guest Post: How to Avoid Blogger Burnout

I’ve noticed lately a few of my blogging friends have been taking some time off from posting to their blogs. A few of them have taken months off with no mention of when they plan to return. It started me thinking about something…blogger burnout. The first thing you need to consider are the warning signs you’re experiencing blogger burnout. Some of the signs are hard to recognize due to the nature of blogging. To help you identify if you have blogger burnout or on your way to experiencing it, ask yourself these questions. Count up how many you answered ‘yes’ to and then read on.
  1. Are you putting up blog posts the day they are due to show up on your blog?
  2. Do you have more reviews than you can finish each day, week and/or month?
  3. Are you having a hard time finding things to blog about?
  4. Do you forget to announce winners of giveaways only a few days after it ends?
  5. Are you staying up late or getting up early to get posts up and feel tired because of it?
  6. Do you have more than 50 emails still waiting for your reply?
Blogger burnout can happen to the best of us. You may be very organized but still feel the stress of having more on your plate than you can manage. So the question is…What can you do about it? Of course you can take a hiatus from your blog.
