What is blogger burnout?
Blogger burnout is a term that I would refer to as having lost of interest in blogging, or in other words you are all blogged out.
This is a phase that blogger go through when they have nothing to blog about or as I mentioned above, lost of interest.
In this post I will highlight some of the symptoms of blogger burnout, how to avoid it and how to recover from it.
Symptoms Of Blogger Burnout
With every illness there are signs and symptoms, and the same goes for blogger burnout. If you have any of these symptoms below, then you might be suffering from this burnout.
You haven’t posted in a couple of weeks – This is the first sign of your burnout. If you are not posting frequently then your readers will leave your blog, you have to keep them up to dated with new articles on a regular basis. You would normally post 4 times per week, then you go down to 2, then 1 post per week and before you know it a week has passed and you have not posted anything.

Visit other blogs, make comments, participate in other non blogging activities and have fun.
How To Recover From Blogger Burnout

Also if you blog everyday then your readers don’t have time to read your blog posts because you have flooded their inbox or rss reader with tons of posts and they don’t have the time to put the information to use that you have written in the blog post.
