Book Blog Memes / Bookish Discussions

12 thoughts on “Avoid Blogger Burnout

  1. This is good advice! “Be nice” seems like common sense, but we know too well that doesn’t always seem to be the case. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve gotten ideas from other bloggers that have helped make me a better blogger.

  2. I think “be nice” is an important one, although I do think an occasional honest review about a book we didn’t like is fine. It’s more difficult than being snarky, but it’s good practice. Being nice to other bloggers is imperative, on the other hand. My rule there is always, always, if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.

    Terrific comparison to that book. Copying and stealing are two different things. Anyone who is creative is always stealing, in the best possible ways. We are influenced by everything we read, for instance. It’s just a part of remaining open to letting yourself be changed by what you experience.

  3. That book sounds very inspiring — thanks for the suggestion. And regarding Twitter — I just don’t get it. I check it maybe once a day. So it is weird to comment on things from only hours before? I didn’t realize that — sometimes I am chiming in on things from days or weeks before. But I spend very little time on it, because it’s a pretty low priority in my life. I do notice that some people seem to be on 24/7.
