I started my blog in December and really had a nice momentum going for a few months in which I gained a good amount of followers right away, made some bloggy friends, hosted reviews and giveaways, etc.
But then I moved and during that time I hit a blogging wall. Or a blogging plateau, I guess. I'm trying to get motivated again but I'd really like to take it to the next level, work with more brands, gain more following.
Have any of you fellow bloggers hit this same wall? What did you do to break through? What did you do to take your blog to the next level?
Thanks for any input!
I did hit that wall for a little while with a former blog that I wrote (before Mommy, In Demand). To get out of it I re-vamped the look, joined some new networks, and actually changed the way I was writing.
What I mean by that is: when I wrote my previous blog I was real negative. Always complaining about something. Basically used it to let out my frustrations, and that wasn't the way I wanted to portray myself. When I revamped I tried to make sure to sound more positive and less whiny. I still vent but I try to be funny about it now.
Sometimes to get yourself out of a rut you need to make a change.
Perhaps revisiting the look of your blog; a new background and header, new font for the actual posts, or even a complete make over can inspire you again.You can even start blogging about things that inspire you now that maybe didn't before. Sometimes your blog has to change with your life or it's not reflecting the true you.
Or like I said, a new network. Just seeing that you are getting new traffic from a new place is enough to inspire you again.
I hope that helps!
I feel like I've been stuck in the same general plateau for a year or more. It's kind of sad. I'd love to hear other's input on this.
