Blahgs (noun) – the feeling you get when you lack the desire to keep on blogging.
Usage: “I know I’ve been doing this for three years, but now I feel like I’m out of ideas and just don’t see the point. I’ve got the blahgs real bad.”
The blahgs affect a lot of people. If they hit you, take a step back and ask yourself what’s changed (assuming, of course, that at one point you were inspired!). See if you’ve drifted off focus, put yourself on a different schedule, or made any other change to what had been working for you.
To get rid of the blahgs, see if you can invent a new regular feature based on what you already do at your blog. Look for community events to join. Look at old posts that worked for you or try expanding on old ideas. Ask a friend to guest post… or guest post elsewhere.
Quite often, though, if you just go back to the basics – remembering why you’re blogging and who you’re trying to reach – the blahgs will pass pretty quickly.
Whatever the reason, the key is to address it… or your blog may turn into a blahg. And that is a sad, sad thing.
