So how you are blogging nowadays.
Do you miss a lot of things-to-do daily? Do you start working a little late in the morning? Do you go off the work a little earlier? Does something easily distract you now?
Sometimes in desperation do you think how long you will be toiling to be a super successful blogger? Do you think more and act less? Do you feel anxiety most of the times while blogging? Are you in dilemma to quit blogging or continue it?
If you face all or a few of these situations, don’t worry nothing wrong is going to happen with you. Only your blogging passion is dying slowly and nothing else. It is not fully dead. It is on decline. It is not as intense as it used to be in the beginning.
Passion can’t stand still. It is just like other phenomena of life. After a dark night there is sunlight in the morning. After a dry spell, rain must fall. In the same way your dying passion can spring back if you try a little to get it back.
Blogging passion is usually more zigzag. It may rise and fall more frequently. In blogging you get fast feedback. Your heart sinks when your post fails to bring a lot of visitors to your blog. Your passion rises when another post attracts huge traffic just because of its quality. So it is natural that your passion goes up and down.
But sometimes it remains down for a long time. It could be down for months and in some cases for years. In that situation too you should not be disappointed. The best way is to continue your struggle till your blogging passion comes back.
Usually any professional passion remains down for a short time. So don’t worry if you feel you don’t have as much blogging passion now as it used to be in the beginning.
