Get Over Blog Envy and Learn to Love Your Blog Again

Guest blogger: Cynthia Morris

There’s a certain someone in my field who has a huge following. This certain someone also has a great blog.

I found myself constantly referring to the blog as an example of what a good blog should be.

And I admit it, I had blog envy.

Rather than stew in a green swamp of jealousy, I decided to learn from this savvy blogger. I analyzed her blog.

You can do the same thing with blogs you admire. Look at:

  • What is the blogger doing that you aren’t?
  • What is he or she doing that you love?

After this exercise, you’ll have a handy (and long) to-do list for pumping up your blog.

Not only will it guide you to better blogging, it should empower you. Your blog envy will be tempered because you have a plan for improvement.

You will learn to love your blog once again.

Happy Valentine’s Day.

This post is adapted from lesson 6 of the Blog Triage Self-Study, which Alyson and I created and hundreds of artists have benefited from.

If you need help falling back in love with your blog, you have just 2 more days to enroll in Blog Triage. It’s just $47, and Alyson says it disappears completely after Sunday, February 16. Click here to read all about it.
