We all know that AWESOME excitement and powerful feeling when we decided that we want to create an amazing and successful profitable blog!!!
We are all pumped, and so motivated that we are hooked to our computer screen (as much as we can) and we try to do everything we can to make our blog grow, and grow FAST!
But what happens when all the excitement and powerful moments go away?!
All of our expectations that we will get a huge amount of traffic to our blog within weeks, and then the reality hits us when we check out our google analytics account that our page views are barely 10 per day.
Yes, I have those days too! Let’s admit it, almost EVERYONE goes through those hard days!
In this post I am going to share with you some tips that I use, when I have those kinda “not so fun” days.
Tip 1 – Don’t lose hope!
I know, when you are going through a tuff day, the most ANNOYING advice you can hear from someone is that there is hope and that you will make it…you just gotta believe in yourself! Because if you don’t, no one will!!!
Probably you are saying to yourself “What the?! Can’t you see I am hopeless here and unmotivated?!?!”
Yes, I am here to tell you that you MUST not lose hope just because you are unmotivated and just because you are going through a bad day! Along with this AMAZING blogging journey, you will have many days that you will feel unmotivated and hopeless.
It’s totally o.k. to have such days! You are a normal human being! Everyone have those type of days! Even the BIG successful bloggers.
Tip 2 – Don’t listen to your negative voice
Yep, that same annoying voice that tells you to quit!
That voice that tells you that you are just wasting your time and that your blog won’t be successful because there are a thousand more other bloggers that blog in your same niche and that are way successful than you. And that they are already an established blogger in your niche.
That voice that tells you that your blog won’t grow and won’t be a successful one because your content sucks…(which probably is totally not true!)
That voice that tells you that your blog is just a new blog…and that it won’t succeed because it’s new!
REMEMBER EVERY blog started at some point! Right?!
Tip 3 – Don’t work on your blog
I am being totally serious here!
Just take a step back from working on your blog for a day or two. Because when you are unmotivated, your posts won’t come out well, you will just be so disappointed about everything you do that day, that it will just bring you down.
So, just give yourself a break.
Breath, Everything is O.K.! You can take a break! Think about it for a moment, The world managed to live years before you created your blog, and it will continue to exist if you decide to take a break for a day or two!
Tip 4 – Remember why you started your blog
O.k. I am not going to tell you “Go look at your dream board” because I HATE dream boards! hahaha….I am so not a fan of that BS.
I simply remind myself “Why I really want this blog to take off” “why I started it and what’s my BIG goal of creating it” (I will write a post about my CRAZY goals in the near future…I didn’t write it yet because it probably won’t interest anyone 🙂 )
When you will remember why you truly started your blog, it will remind you the feeling and excitement you had when you just created your blog!
And BOY that excitement was AMAZING! right?!
Tip 5 – Work on stuff related to your blog
Yes, I know….in tip 3 I told you not to work on your blog.
In this tip, I am telling you to work on the “Back-end” of your blog. So that you will still be productive on these hopeless days.
work on stuff that will help and GROW your blog.

Just REMEMBER that these days will pass and that your blog is UNIQUE because each and every one of us has a special voice to share to the world!
Don’t be HARD on yourself and as I said in the post above, If you need to, TAKE a BREAK!
I really REALLY hope that this post gave you some great tips to go through your unmotivating days. I know, these days are hard to go through, but I really promise you that they will pass!
