How to Maintain & Increase Your Blogging Motivation

I’ve been an aniblogger here in Fujinsei for 2 years now.  It might not seem that long to you but trust me when I say this, the majority of new blogs are deleted by their owners within 3 months.  Only 3 months!  I think that one of the most important issues facing bloggers is lost of motivation/interest.  Sure, we’re all so pumped and so excited when we create our first blogs, harbouring all of these dreams of hitting it big.  And then we experience first-hand the harsh reality of the extremely competitive blogging world.  Our dreams are dashed, our self-confidence beaten to a pulp.  And the next thing we know, we’re clicking “Delete Blog”.  The end.

It doesn’t have to be this way.  If you learn how to manage your motivation and work hard in keeping it alive, theoretically you’ll be able to blog for a long time.  So here are some tips on how to do just that.

How to Maintain & Increase Your Blogging Motivation:

1. Read Posts By Other Bloggers
Study how they write their posts.  How do their styles differ from yours and how do they use theirs to convey content?  Be hungry.  Learn as much as you can from other bloggers to develop your own blogging style.  Some word of caution:  learn but don’t be a second-rate copycat.  Take what you learn and make it your own.  Take inspiration from other bloggers’ success.

2. Make Friends With Other Bloggers and Stick Close to Them
Befriending other bloggers simultaneously creates a circle of fellow bloggers who’ll support you throughout your blogging career.  The foundation will always be give-and-take but as all of you grow closer, it’ll eventually develop into pure friendship where real affection rules more than merits.  Big shout-out to my awesome Friends of Fujinseito my fellow cuckoo members of Lyndere Club and Gundam Sisters, and the trying-hard NinjaPirateers that I’m captaining.  You’re all the best!

3. Keep a Blog Idea Notebook
I already mentioned on a previous Blogging Tips post titled “How I Get Blog Post Ideas: Anime & Manga Edition” that I keep a notebook which I use exclusively for recording any blog post ideas that pop into my head.  Here’s a photo of a couple of pages from my actual notebook:

Having a notebook like this helps you tremendously whenever you feel like you can’t eke out any more posts.  Looking at all the ideas you listed previously stimulates your writing juices.  It also prevents you from running out of ideas, so you can never use the excuse “But I don’t know what to write anymore!” ever again.

4. Use a Blog Calendar
“Professional” bloggers may call this an editorial calendar.  It’s basically a visual overview of all of your posts by date.  Just like checking off a task from a to-do list feels good, filling out dates on your blog calendar with a post also makes you feel good and productive.  It’s also very handy when planning out future posts.  Feel free to use an actual physical calendar or an online one like Google Calendar.  I personally use both.  Here’s a screenshot of my actual Google Calendar that I use exclusively to record my Fujinsei posts:

5. Make Blogging a Habit
Do your best to be consistent.  If you make blogging a habit, it becomes a part of your life and makes it easier as time goes by.  When you make blogging a habit, you’ll actually feel like your day is incomplete if you don’t do anything blog-related.  If you take a break, you’ll feel the proverbial “itch” to blog again.

6. Don’t Be Afraid to Take Regular Breaks from Blogging
Most of  my blogging buddies and regular readers know this.  I often take frequent unannounced blogging breaks.  I don’t know how many times I recommend this to my fellow bloggers.  Read “I Regularly Take Breaks From Blogging And Why You Should, Too” for more information.  If you feel burnt-out, that’s okay.  Don’t be afraid to take a break.  Focus on taking a rest and regaining your enthusiasm and motivation instead of forcing yourself.

Treat blogging as a marathon and not a full-out sprint.  You’ll only suffer if you force yourself to blog when you literally can’t do it.  Worse, you’ll end up resenting it.

7. Track Your Progress
Look back from where you started to where you are now.  Recheck your Archives to the period where you just created your blog.  Unsatisfied with the number of your followers?  Remember that you had zero.  Instead of whining about your dissatisfaction with your current state, use your experiences to propel yourself forward.  Remember how you were when you started, evaluate how you are now, and plan how you want to be in the future.

8. Appreciate Your Accomplishments, No Matter How Small
Reached 100 followers?  Written 100 posts?  Celebrate.  Brag a  little on your blog, but if you’re too shy to do that (like me, cough cough), treat yourself with a double chocolate cupcake.  Be proud of your accomplishments, no matter how small you think they are, and then aim just a little higher next time.  It’s better to take baby steps slowly but surely, rather than attempt to fly when you haven’t even grown wings yet.

9. Avoid Negative People
In some of my previous Blogging Tips posts, I always emphasized to be nice.  However, it doesn’t mean that you have to be nice to everyone.  If someone’s being a total a-hole to you without reason, oh honey, there’s no need to be nice to douchebags like that.  Of course you can try being nice, but if he’s still being an a-hole with a capital A, forget it.  Avoid that toxic person.  Negative people like that will only drag you down.  They’re energy vampires who’ll suck you dry if you allow them to.  They’re not worth your time.  Focus instead on surrounding yourself with positive people who’ll motivate and cheer you up whenever you need them.  Again big shout-out to my Friends of Fujinseifellow members of Lyndere Club and Gundam Sisters, and the NinjaPirateers I’m captaining.

10. Learn How to Deal With Criticism
l won’t be presumptuous and say that I’m an expert in dealing with criticism.  Not at all.  I still have lots to learn in this area.  After all, I’m a woman with a nasty temper when provoked the wrong way and I’m not afraid to fight back to douchebags who unfortunately don’t know the concept of “Respect”.  However, I know very well that diplomacy gives more peaceful results than resorting to all-out warfare in the blogosphere.  Many of my posts are quite opinionated, so it’s a given that there are people who disagree with me.  That’s fine.  I also don’t shy away from voicing out my disagreement to posts by other bloggers.

erza scarlet - strong and sexy - fairy tail

I’m also a fan translator of Japanese radio show Dear Girl ~Stories~ (I’m on an indefinite break now, though).  My translations have been criticized numerous times.  But they don’t mean that much to me.  I’ve faced worse criticisms during my past as a book reviewer.

Some a-holes will always be a-holes no matter what you do.  However, some may just seem like a-holes at first but are actually friend material underneath.  Watch out for these people and grab them immediately into your circles.  I discovered some awesome buddies this way.  After trading barbs for a time, we’ve developed admiration for each other’s wit and grudgingly accepted each other as worthy allies. . .or rivals is a much better term, I think.

11. Blog For What You Believe In
Do you blog because you want to share your opinions?  Do you blog because you want to meet people and make new friends?  Do you blog because you want to be famous?  To earn money?  No matter what the reason, blog first and foremost for yourself and for what you believe in.  Don’t let others’ opinions make you stray from your chosen path.  If you feel strongly about what you’re blogging, it’s less likely that you’ll lose motivation because you’re blogging about something you’re passionate about.

12. Don’t quit.
Probably the most basic and most important but often the most-overlooked in this list.  If you keep on quitting and deleting your blog because you keep on losing motivation, you’ll never accomplish anything.  Persevere.  Like what I said earlier, treat blogging like a marathon.  And to successfully run a marathon, you have to remove the word “quit” from your vocabulary.

  2. i really needed this post in my life!!! as you may have noticed, i only started blogging recently (very recently), but it’s not the first time i try. i’m italian and english isn’t my first language so i’m always kind of afraid to post lengthy stuff in english on the internet because it’s mathematical that my english won’t be flawless and i don’t take criticism very well, but i’m trying to be more consistent with my writing and this seemed like a good way to make sure i practice constantly; plus, it’s a very good way to let my feelings out in a period of my life that’s not ideal. i’m a quitter, so right after writing my first post i was already consudering just deleting and go back to my cave, but i didn’t and i’m glad because i found your blog (actually, you found mine — thanks for the likes, they really meant a lot to me — and then i found yours) and now i’ll be sure to keep this in mind every time i’ll feel like giving up. after all i’m here for myself and no one else, i just that i’ll be so lucky as to make friends along the way!!!

    1. I’m glad that you find my post helpful. That’s my goal for writing these blogging tips. Oh! That’s cool. I’m also interested in learning Italian. I think it’s a beautiful language. Don’t worry too much about it. Just write and do your best to convey what you want to say as best as you can. We don’t have to be perfect every time. English isn’t my first language either.
      Well, I think that getting inspiration from our fellow bloggers is a great way to motivate yourself and avoid quitting. We have an awesome anime blogging community here on WordPress, so don’t be afraid to befriend us. We’re mostly nice here. And don’t worry too much about criticisms. We all experience them as bloggers. Just do what you do, and you’ll be confident as time goes by.

      Oh, you’re very welcome. Your post caught my attention because I also sometimes write posts about the dark side of the anime fandom, instances like what you wrote when anime becomes a bad influence in life. Anyway, just keep on blogging and try to have fun along the way. Thanks for dropping by. I appreciate it. Take care. Cheers!

  3. Execellent post Arria!!. I agree when people start off a blog or a yt channel for that matter. They don’t understand that they are in fact just a drop in the ocean to the millions of other users, who also share similar aspirations. And when their aspirations aren’t met – because they aren’t big. They quit. It takes baby steps, 1 comment is better than 0 comments. 1 view is better than 0 views.

    Also this is the biggest problem; they don’t meet or find other bloggers. In order to help them create a network around them. This is the most basic thing to do; whether it is a blog or a you tube channel. The biggest bloggers / yt channels all have had some interactions with each other at some point. They didn’t stay in the corner. Guys get out there and try to intro yourselves, take the plunge!!!. You’ll be surprised. Start small, find a blog you like, comment frequently on that blog. I assure you, this will help you get over your shyness. I was like that once. Now, whenever I see a blog, I say “hey nice post, keep it up!”.

    Point 1 – this one haunts me to this day. I tried to instill this idea in a new blogger. However I think I just ended up scaring the author away. As s/he quit not too long after. So these days I just encourage them, so they can grow organically on their own.

    1. Thank you very much, Rocco! I appreciate it. Indeed, you’re right. Once upon a time, I was active on YouTube as well, but gosh, it’s brutal out there. I had a channel where I posted AMVs. Anyway, now that’s history. I’m just so impressed with a lot of successful Youtubers out there right now, and you’re exactly right when you say that these Youtubers didn’t get to where they are now by being by themselves and not connecting with other Youtubers. It’s exactly the same as blogging.
      Oh no. That’s sad, but I don’t think it’s your fault. Perhaps that blogger just wasn’t ready. Anyway, thanks for dropping by and commenting. Keep on blogging. Cheers!

  4. Great blogging advice! When I decided to blog after my class, it was tough to know where to start. Thankfully, just like what you said, I analyzed some people’s blogs to give me an idea. Blogs like yours’, LitaKino, Shay, and many more helped understand what does an anime blog look like. I also try to keep a mental plan on what to write about and sometimes Friday, I have a plan. The one point you mentioned about toxic people is good reminder. I definitely need to keep an eye out for them. I don’t that negativity at my blog.
    Also, nice handwriting on your notes. 🙂

We’re all newbies when it comes to aniblogging. Yes, that’s why it’s so fun because I don’t feel caged to write about anime. I’m also glad that you decided to become an aniblogger after that school project you had. 😁 That’s good. You created your own font. Mine feels like a second version of my mom’s handwriting.

  5. I love looking at these kinds of posts from fellow bloggers, it helps me remember how far I’ve come with my own anime blog, such a great motivator. So I definitely agree with your overall theme of positive reinforcement, building up a community that will support you, taking breaks to read others’ work and refresh your inspiration.

    I know my partner and I wouldn’t have got where we are with our blog without all the people who take the time to leave comments on our stuff, or write shoutouts or guest pieces for us. It’s the best reminder that there are people out there who are and will be passionate about your writing, and that you should keep going for them as much as yourself. It’s so humbling, while being a confidence booster too! We could easily have become one of the three-monthers. I’m so glad we weren’t.

  9. I never run out of ideas, just quality time to write them out.

    I had already stopped blogging about anime, as i think I would rather make comments on other bloggers posts about anime … I subscribe to a number of them, many found via your site. I don’t watch as much as some others do, and do not consider myself an expert. I just have strong opinions on what I do like. So I will just stick to commenting rather than writing articles about anime.

    I have not had the time for Pokemon nicknames recently, which is too bad, because since Pokemon Go came out my Pokenames series has been getting hundreds of views per day.

    I’m taking a break from blogging, but will check in with you once in a while.

  10. This was both a really encouraging post and really helpful. I’ve been struggling to find the motivation to keep working on my blog for a while, so I actually kind of needed to read something like this right about now. I’m going to try applying some of these ideas and renewing my efforts in others, specifically the bit about reading other people’s blogs regularly and trying to learn from them, and the bit about keeping a notebook of ideas. I probably should also start actually commenting on and interacting with those posts I do read more often instead of just lurking, which might also help me with point #2.

    Anyway, thanks so much for writing this. I really needed it! 🙂

There are times, where I question my motivation pretty often. Am I address my vision in the right way? Is any of the frustration even worth it? And in those moments, the simplest gesture is what helps me refocus. I laugh it off and keep pushing.

    1. Yay! High-five! Yes, it’s true. Most blogs get deleted within 3 months. Actually the first 6 months to a year is the most critical when it comes to blogging. A lot of our fellow bloggers who started aniblogging at the same time with me are now gone. . .er, not “dead” but gone from blogging.

The combination of long standing injuries, the worry me continuing was causing my kids, and a lot of needless backstage politics souring it a little kinda scuppered it for me. I still have all the gear though and get tempted to go back all the time, but i’m standing firm on my retirement as it stands.

That meant wrestling, helping out at the training school when it was open, and booking the first year and a half of shows before he took over a bit more of it. It was fun though, regardless of the lack of money in it for me. I did at least get to tour with some of my favourites from my youth and work with some really good guys though, so i’m happy with what I achieved.
