1. I learned that a person can get burnt out blogging very easily. 2. I think it's important that bloggers have a deep passion for their blog's subject. Without it, it will make being burnt out even easier. 3. I think the biggest thing to avoid it is to keep work and play separate. If you can, buy a studio to get out of the house to do your work. It makes it way easier to get into "work mode" when you travel to work, rather than sitting at home on your personal computer.
1. I didn't know that blogging burnout was a thing, but now I do! 2. You always hear the quote "if you love your job, you won't work a day in your life" and that is so true and especially for blogging. If you don't have a passion and love for it, you will end up hating and resenting it and become burned out. 3. Make sure the subject is something that will always be renewing. If you blog about a subject that doesn't change or evolve, you will get stuck writing about the same thing forever and people will want something new so they will move on to newer blogs.
1) I learned how something that what you love to blog about can be easily burn you out by the online media's constant need for news and stories to be instant, continuous, and have qualitative and quantitative information. 2) It is highly important to love and have a passion for what you're blogging about because the burn out process, I can imagine, will start sooner than later. If you're not passionate on what you're blogging about, you more than likely won't be continuing the blog. 3) My suggestions on preventing this is have a set time and date on when to post, that way the readers know exactly when to tune in to your blog. Also maybe sticking to just 1-2 different social media outlets. Being active on 5+ accounts can be exhausting.
1. Burnout is real. People tire from blogging.2. If they don't love what they do, then they won't be as focused into the blog.3. Make sure you prioritize what is important keep things separate. Maybe use a new workspace instead of your own home.
1. I learned that bloggers can get burnt out very fast.2. I think it's important to blog something that you are passionate about and love and to not over do yourself. If you don't feel like posting then don't force yourself to do so because you will get burnt out very easily if it feels forced and if you don't love what your blogging about. 3. Basically what I said in answer 2 which was to not push yourself to blog, if you don't feel like it that day then do it another day, give yourself a break and make sure you love what your blogging over.
1.) What I learned is that blogs that make money are usually being sponsored and they have to advertise their sponsor within their blog which can lead to a lack of trust from their readers and a sense of authenticity from their blog.2.) The importance of passion and love in blogging is that to have an authentic and interesting blog, you have to be interested in what you are writing about or will just seem fake. It's also very easy to get burned out when you are not loving what you are doing and vice versa. 3.) My suggestions would be to make sure you are blogging for your own benefit and not the benefit of others. I understand that making money from blogging is an amazing thing, but if you aren't enjoying your work, is it really even worth doing?
1. I leaned that when you are constantly blogging it easy to get burned out. 2. It is important to have a passion because it will reflect in your writing. If there is no passion or love the post may not have the personal emotion or the enthusiasm it once had.3. My suggestions would be to take time off from blogging where you are able to clear your head. Or, do something different so that you can be inspired.
1. I learned that having your blog become hugely popular and successful is great at first, but eventually you may get burned out.2. It is incredibly important to be passionate and love what you blog about, because when you love it, it's easier to keep burn-out from ruining your blog life.3. The problem could be avoided by knowing what you're getting yourself into. If what you blog about is exhausting and tiresome (like renovating houses), and you don't love it enough to let it control your life, then try a different route for your blog.
1. I learned that when blogging as a career, it is easy to get burnt out. "A tricky thing to avoid as a full-time blogger, considering that the Internet never sleeps, readers want fresh content daily and new social media platforms must be mastered and added to the already demanding workload." 2. It is so important to love and have a passion for blogging in order to make a career out of it because it is very time consuming and required a lot of work, so why would you spend so much time doing something you didn't actually like? Plus readers are smart, they can tell if there is passion in your posts or not.3. I think it's important to blog because you love doing it. You have to avoid falling into the trap of pleasing everyone. Because if you're always trying to please everyone, you're going to become exhausted and realize that is an impossible task.
1. I learned that juts like any other job, you can get burnt out of blogging.2. It is very important to blog about something you love and are passionate about. Not only will it make you have a better chance of not getting burnt out but it will also make you more successful in the blogging world. 3. I think you should really consider if blogging is going to be something you love before you start a blog and like I said above make sure you write about something you are passionate about.
This is an interesting article. I learned that the work and honesty this couple put into their blog wasn't working for them anymore. It was a tricky situation for them, since the blog launched their success along with their fanbase. Nevertheless, we all must adapt to change. Where they went wrong was being painfully honest with the audience and still try to put out subpar blog posts. They could have taken a vacation from blogging before it got to that point. Perhaps they needed to reevaluate what they were blogging about. The fans would have been disappointed at first, but if the love and passion is there, they will quickly turn around.
