Why Do Some People Get Fed Up With Blogging?

Why Do Some People Get Fed Up With Blogging?

After reading blog posts from some bloggers, I gathered the impression that they were forcing themselves to blog (I deduced that by their excuses given for not publishing any blog posts in a long while and the lacklustre blog posts that they published to fill the void).

In my case, I love blogging and I could never get fed up with it.

And, the best part of all is that I never struggle to keep my blog updated.

Why is it that some people feel as though they have had enough of blogging?

Well, that is what I intend on finding out.

So, hold on tightly to your seat, my friend, because it is time to dive deeply into this interesting topic.

Their Passion For Blogging Is At An All-Time Low

It is our passion for blogging that fuels us; without it, we would view blogging as an extremely tedious task.

People who are highly passionate about blogging will do whatever it takes to get their quota of blogging done.

On the other hand, those who have lost their passion for blogging will do less of it or give up on blogging entirely.

They Are Probably Not Blogging About The Things That They Are Passionate About

Unfortunately, many bloggers are not following their passion.

Instead of working on the types of topics that they are passionate about, they are forcing themselves to produce the types of content that they think people will want to read.

The sad fact is that too many personal bloggers have fixated their minds on views.

I will admit that it feels nice when my blog posts get lots of views, but the truth is that views are not everything.

If a blogger denies their passion and creates what they think people will want to read (despite those types of posts attracting lots of incoming views), they are going to feel dead inside.

However, if they create the types of blog posts that they are truly passionate about (and manage to attract lots of incoming views) they will feel a sense of satisfaction.

Hey, even though you do not get as many views by publishing the types of blog posts that you are deeply passionate about, you will still feel as though you had accomplished something.

Both professional and personal bloggers should blog about the things that they are passionate about.

And, if you happen to be one of those bloggers who is thinking about going with a niche, choose one that you are passionate about and not one that you think is going to be the most popular.

Dear friend, if you do that, I can guarantee you that you are not going to get fed up with your blog anytime soon.

They Are In Dire Need Of A Hiatus

It should not come as a surprise that we can become physically and mentally drained; it can be brought on by:

  • Working long hours on a job.
  • Studying for exams.
  • Not getting enough sleep.
  • Not eating a balanced diet.
  • Lack of physical exercise.

What should you do whenever you become mentally and physically drained?

You should recharge your batteries (in the proverbial sense) by taking some time off to rest (And, this is where a hiatus comes in).

Being burnt out has the potential of causing one to feel fed up with blogging.

It May Have A Lot To Do With Them Wanting To Close A Chapter In Their Life

The chapter that I am referring to here is their blogging journey.

The God’s/Goddess’s truth is that not everyone plans on blogging forever.

Therefore, after blogging for a certain period (for example twelve years) they may think that it is time for them to put an end to blogging.

They simply had enough.

They Wrongfully Believe That Blogging Is Not Worth The Effort

Everyone who blogs know that blogging requires a lot of work. A blogger needs to:

  • Brainstorm topics for their next batch of blog posts.
  • Write a draft copy for their upcoming blog post.
  • Proofread their upcoming blog post.
  • Edit their blog posts.
  • Find or create images for their upcoming blog posts.

All of those things can be very time-consuming.

And, when a blogger completes the process, they have to start it all over again.

The blogger will become fed up if he or she believes that the time that they are putting out for blogging is no longer worth the effort.

Their Blog Did Not Produce The Results They Wanted

Some people are known to get fed up whenever things do not go their way; a perfect example of this is a person blogging for only two weeks and expecting their blog to acquire a large number of followers, views, likes and comments.

Any experienced blogger (or any new blogger with a bit of common sense) would know that it takes time to build an audience and that their viewership is not going to grow overnight.

Final Thoughts

Unfortunately, there are people who do get fed up with blogging; it can be caused by:

  • Their passion for blogging dropping at an all-time low.
  • Not blogging about the things that they are passionate about.
  • Their dire need of a hiatus.
  • Having an urge to put their blogging journey to an end.
  • Wrongfully believing that blogging is not worth the effort.
  • Noticing that their blog did not produce the results they wanted.

  1. Great food for thought here. I was feeling some type of way about a personal true story piece I posted, in that it didn’t get the attention it so deserved. I was feeling like it should have been read by anyone and everyone that saw it or viewed it and maybe skimmed over the paragraphs. Then I had to remind myself its 50 pages long. Not everyone is gonna be up to reading all of that. I was almost discouraged by it. After reading this however, I’ve a new outlook on possibilities that are still possible for that post. Never give up.

    1. BooBoo, it seems that the more heart and soul I pour into a post, the more ignored and/or misunderstood it. Yet I can fire off a piece of crap at two o’clock in the morning and the masses love it. Bottom line, write for your own enjoyment and if even one person understands it, you’re a winner.

  2. I think the blogging hype in me might have died down. And you’re absolutely right. Sometimes I want to write what would gain a lot of views not what I like writing. But the heart writes what it wants. Excellent advice as always 👍💯

  3. I was struggling with this for a moment. Should I write what is me or tailor for views. I can’t pretend. I can only write about things that matter to me. I write from my heart. If no one else likes it, I still enjoyed writing it!

  4. I never get fed up with blogging itself. I get fed up when I can not navigate WP well….as you know….
    Hetty summarized “purrfectly”!
    I think back to 2005 when I first set up an account on Yahoo 360 blog site…..I had only the name of the blog at that point! I made my decision to blog as my cats & the rest is ‘hisstory’….lol….
    Sorry I couldn’t resist the cat referenced spelling. Blogging is a part of who I am. No way I can be fed up with being a Blogger…..
    I have many friends here tho’ who have just quit. That is sad. It is like losing a family member….in fact, some Bloggers know more about my daily life thru BellaDharma than my remaining family do!
    Thanks for another insightful post Renard!

  5. Well for me, not quite. I’m extremely frustrated with my apples speech to text function and with wordpress itself, because neither of them work and both of them slow the writing process down. It’s like slogging through mud.

    For instance I had to the word quite four times before it didn’t write the word “white” (and then I had a lot of back spacing to do).

    The block editor isn’t all thaf easy to us. Just give me a blank page, like you’d find in “word” or “pages” and let me type away. I don’t want every paragraph to interrupt things.

    Today I spent hours trying to put a “subscribe” form on my blog. I was in tears before I finished.

    Maybe if life wasn’t so hard right now with me dealing with my second cancer in less than a year and the resent death of my father that followed two years of intensive live in caregiving as he got sicker and sicker, I wouldn’t end up in tears after so much of my blogging.

    But really…. Why does wordpress have to make it so hard? And why can’t apple make their speech to text function better?

        1. I didn’t mean to follow you or unfollow you just now. I was looking at your blog and accidentally did something that resulted in a message saying I unfollowed you. I immediately corrected myself and followed you again.

          Please don’t think it was some sort of slight.

          It was a com complete accident.

          I’ve been making so many that I’m thinking of starting a blog that is only for me to test out different functions in WordPress. This way my mistakes will not affect my blog as badly as they sometimes do.

  6. I’ve been feeling a little burned out too at work, but blogging is my relaxation activity. I was posting daily my first month, but now I’m focusing on more quality content, especially for my weekly Monday and Wednesday series.

  7. Great topic Renard. You Have hammered 🔨 all the points here. According to my own view bloggers get tired and fed up from blogging because they aren’t writing about what they are truly passionate about. They are not exotic and interesting in their posts. That is why I chose to write about my passion which is Men’s fashion band style sharing my creative ideas is truly amazing I even don’t research the topics to write about instead I just dive in and explain an outfit or a style😊😊. This is one of the best posts from you this September✌🔥🔥

  8. This was a great post and I do get fed up pretty regularly with my blog. It often feels like the amount of work I’m putting in is way more than I receive. Hopefully, that will change in due time, but I’m not focused and feeling empowered again. Starting to focus more on community than views (which is a terrible metric).
