When is it time to quit blogging?


The opposite night time I had the sudden urge to only scrap the weblog and every thing with it — all my socials, my GoodReads web page, this particular web site — and take into consideration simply studying (and reflecting) privately.

I am unsure if this urge is actual or a results of my concussion; however I hold flip-flopping between desirous to hit ‘delete’ on a number of accounts and feeling small pangs of fear that I will remorse transferring on.

That is my twelfth yr running a blog however I really feel like I am getting worse at it moderately than higher. I discover my critiques missing; I really feel very conscious of how little I work together with different bloggers. I do not assume I’ve a recent viewpoint or notion. And I am much less within the ebook publicity machine nowadays so I am unsure what worth there’s in me attempting to speak about books moderately blandly. (This is not me fishing for compliments, btw!)

This is likely to be the second or third time I’ve thought of transferring on, so possibly that is trace sufficient. If you happen to’ve stored on, what retains going? Any ideas? Or any questions I ought to ask myself earlier than deciding to maneuver on? I do not need to hold doing one thing out of inertia or a worry of lacking out and I do not need to stop one thing as a result of I am feeling moody from my accident or insecure or no matter. I am unsure I’ve received anybody studying right here who was a blogger and now not is not, however in the event you’ve any recommendation, I might love to listen to it.

Are you aware while you would possibly stop?
