Another challenge prompt from goodbooksandgoodwine challenge
How do you fight blogger fatigue?
It’s a mix of reader and blogger fatigue – after a heavy phase of reading, once in a while I need to sit back and relax for a while and do something else. I watch the TV, do a little sewing (my other hobby), do the things I haven’t done whilst I’ve been reading – like the ironing! I read things other than books and other blogs – I subscribe to several monthly magazines and try to set sometime aside to spend more time paying attention to those – I’ve spent money on them, so I better make sure I’m getting my money’s worth!
I am also trying to attend more local author events – many of these are in the day time whilst I am at work, but where they are held in the evening or weekend, I’m making more of an effort to go.
I know that I’ve got a load of posts scheduled into my blog that means I dont have to write another blog post for a while. This break from blogging (and reading) means that I can come back recharged with energy and hopefully write better posts.
I am also on the lookout for new writing challenges and different ways of reviewing and blogging to keep myself interested. If I’m interested and charged up, then hopefully my readers are also interested in what I have to say! This is one of the reasons that I’m taking part in this challenge (albeit not to the same time scales as envisioned in the original challenge because I have other commitments to deliver posts).
So do you get reader or blogger fatigue? What do you do to recover from it?
