When The Blogger That Motivates You Is In Desperate Need Of Motivation

When The Blogger That Motivates You Is In Desperate Need Of Motivation

We all have our favourite bloggers β€” those bloggers who motivate us to keep on blogging.

However, there are those rare moments when those bloggers who usually motivate us need a bit of motivating themselves.

Hey, those bloggers are human beings just like us, and there would be times when they need someone to encourage them to keep on blogging.

Most of the time, they will tell you exactly the reason why they are having a very hard time finding the motivation to blog (So, you do not have to scratch your head and wonder what is their issue).

Today, we are going to see how we can go about sending a bit of motivation their way.

Leave Them An Inspirational Comment

You can begin by letting them know how they have inspired you via their blog’s comments thread (That is provided that they wrote a blog post about them wanting to put their blog to an end).

I genuinely believe that if a large percentage of their viewing audience lets them know much they mean to them, they will think twice about abandoning their blog.

You can even go as far as to let them know which blog post of theirs inspired you, and if, by chance, it relates to what they are currently going through, suggest to them that they read it.

Let Them Know That It Is Okay For Them To Take A Hiatus

One of the main issues is that people who help others seldom think about taking time off to deal with their own self.

The God’s/Goddess’s truth is that if they continue neglecting their well-being, they will not be around to help others.

If they feel uninspired or burnt out, encourage them to go on a hiatus.

Let Them Know That Their Blog’s Incoming Traffic Will Improve

Many bloggers have complained about a severe drop in their blog’s incoming traffic (Truthfully, it is not the end of the world because incoming traffic fluctuates; one moment is high, and the other moment, it is low).

There are bloggers who would feel heartbroken when they put a lot of hard work into their blog posts, and witness for themselves, the poor response β€” a dismal amount of incoming views.

On a positive note, their traffic will pick up again.

If people do not read your blog post today, they will certainly read it whenever they get a chance to do so.

From experience, I can tell you that many people go through my blog archives (Which is a sign that those blog posts of mine are still being read way after the date that they were published).

Send Them An Email That Encourages Them To Keep On Blogging

Many bloggers have made it easy for you to contact them. For example, an email address that they have created specifically for their blog (It will be included in their blog’s Contact page).

The message that you send them can be based on how they motivated you in the past and that you are willing to be there for them in times of need.

Letting one of your favourite bloggers know that you care deeply about them should encourage them to keep on blogging.

Final Thoughts

Dear friend, there will come a time when some of those bloggers who motivate us, will be desperately in need of motivation (When that happens, we could repay the favour by motivating them).

The blogosphere needs all of those bloggers who did their part to make it a better place.

Be there for them.

Encourage them to carry on with their blogging (They will be appreciative of your kind gesture).



  1. Great post, Renard. I think your mention of taking a hiatus rather than giving up is important. Sometimes people quit when all they really needed was rest.

    Letting others know how they’ve inspired you is also good advice. It can really have a positive impact on someone. In fact, just recently I encouraged a fellow blogger and they mentioned in a later post that I had encouraged them. It was heartwarming. 😁

    Funny you should mention encouragement. Just got a comment not on my blog but on an article I had written for Vocal Media. Instead of commenting on my article he praised me for being good at writing and trusting me to let him know if he was doing all right with his articles. Well, I wanted to point out that the comment section on an article was not the place for this, but well I don’t feel good quibbling with anyone. I guess he meant well so I went to see what he was writing about and I was pleasantly surprised that he had written a very good story about friendship. I commented on it and told him I enjoyed it and it felt good to encourage someone. I hope you have a good weekend ahead we are having our three day Memorial Day weekend and the start to summer,

  9. That’s a great thought, and now I’m doubly appreciative of the comment you left on my latest post. I believe it’s a cyclical thing, and that some days, the motivator needs the motivation, and on others days, the cycle goes back around. Anyway, thanks for this post!

    Everybody needs motivation sometimes in their lives, even the ones who are the strongest. Simple things for self care like deep breathing exercises, taking a break from social media, walking, spending time in nature, and meditation can be very helpful. A relevant post Renard. πŸ‘

    Hi Renard, great post. I think you’re spot on, but sometimes just giving a boost/encouragement can work wonders even before we realise our motivation dips

    It’s great to receive words of encouragement that inspire us to do more. I am inspired by ‘role models’ who walk the talk… but hey! they are human too! When they are down, it’s good for the community to return the support as well! Good and timely post Renard! You are always full of ideas about blogging!

    It can feel pretty lonely sometimes to blog, eh? Especially for the smaller time blogs that don’t regularly get interactions yet. We all love to write, but I think most also do it for the engagement. And there’s like this optimal point you want to reach, but its out of your hands (and sometimes getting out of hand…). Always good to support fellow bloggers that inspire you. Let them know you appreciate them. Fully with you there!
