Find your purpose
You will be significantly more successful as a blogger if you define some goals and a purpose for your blog. Not only will it offer you some guidelines for what to write about when the inevitable writers block comes around, it will also make it more enjoyable. For example, nobody likes to write about something they don’t enjoy and it goes without saying that if you are writing about something you enjoy then it is rarely going to feel like a chore.

Be yourself
This is a biggie – you need to be yourself. People will read your blog for you and to find out about you. If you try to hide behind smoke and mirrors or pretend to be someone you are not then maintaining a blog will take much more effort and be all the more draining when you come to write a post or two at the end of a busy day.

Plan a content calendar
This one may sound obvious, but it is vital that you create a schedule for posts and that you stick to it. For example, if you are going to write a series of posts on restaurants in your town then commit yourself to publish these posts by the second week of the month, every month. A few more ideas like this and you will have a half-full content schedule that writes itself! If you get your content planned out far in advance, or you feel like you don’t have time to write your content for whatever reason you could always look to outsource it. This essay site I found is a good example of somewhere you could get decent content written up.

Keep it fun
Possibly the most important item on the list because if blogging isn’t fun anymore, then why are you still doing it? “How do I keep it fun?” I hear you ask, well there are a few simple things you can do to help raise the fun factor. You could listen to music while you blog, having a little singing session while you write a few posts is always great. Another way to keep it fun, and a big reason for most people to get into blogging, is to make friends with other bloggers. Find like-minded moms to chat to, read their blogs, leave comments and really integrate yourself with the community. If you do this you will certainly be able to have fun and make new friends in the process!
