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.
