7 Days to Rediscovering Your Blogging Groove

Posted By Darren Rowse 16th of July 2007 Miscellaneous Blog Tips

Are you finding it hard to sustain your blogging inspiration at the moment? This week I’d like to help you get your blogging moving again.

Have you lost your blogging groove?

If you have – you’re not alone. Last week I chatted with a lot of bloggers who are either feeling disillusioned, uninspired, uncreative or just plain bored with their blogs. The result was that their blogs were suffering.

Perhaps it is the time of year (many in the northern hemisphere have all the distractions of summer while those of us in the south are feeling the winter blues) or perhaps it’s something else – but I’m sensing that many bloggers could need a little bit of a boost right now.

So this week I’d like to invite you to participate with me in a little project called the ‘Rediscover Your Blogging Groove‘ project.

Each day over the next week I’m going to announce a new type of post that I’ll invite you to write on your blog.

I’ll attempt to make them general enough to for most types of blogs (some of you might need to get a little creative) and will write a few ideas and thoughts on how to approach the type of post that I’m writing about. I’ll also try to give a few good examples from around the blogosphere of each type of post.

The object is simply to take the post type and write something on your blog that bounces off what I write.

  • There’s no need to link back here (this isn’t about me, it’s about you getting your blog groove back).
  • There’s no prizes (this isn’t an official ProBlogger group writing project, hopefully the reward is simply feeling a little inspiration to write some good content)
  • I’m not going to create a big list of posts that you all write (although you’re welcome to show off your posts in the comments announcing each day’s post type so we can see how you approached it).
  • There are no ‘rules’. Take my suggested post types in any direction you’d like, tweak the, change them, ignore them, do it over a longer period if you can’t manage 7 posts in a week – do whatever you like – but have fun with it.
