It’s almost more than a month now that I am logging in to my blog!!! Yes, I am alive. I really don’t know what happened, except that I was literally in a complete different world. I mean, seriously, I was just out of all scope!!!! It was that bad phase of my life when you feel everything has fallen apart. But, I am just so proud of myself to put all my courage together again to move on.
Honestly, now I’m happy that I am boosted enough to clear all the fog and get the momentum back in life after this long break. So, thanking the almighty for everything, I am excited to report to my dearest readers again with a new sense of enthusiasm and purpose.
Okay, to begin, let me tell you how I planned the comeback of Explore It My Way,
Clear All The Backlogs (Plugin Updates, Comments awaiting moderation etc…)
Obviously, the first thing I started with is clearing all the backlogs. There were a lot of comments awaiting moderation that I had to clear off. Moreover, all the plugins I used were all outdated which required an immediate update. So, all these backlogs including optimizing the database were taken care of with priority and immediate effect.
Change The Looks For A Fresh Start
A fresh look always motivates the new start! That is why I decided to refresh the face and skin of Explore It My Way. It’s now more elegant and clean along with lot more user-friendly options. Hope y’all will love the new looks. Do let me know your feedbacks through the comments section below.
Ways To Motivate Myself & Get Inspired To Blog Again
Now that I have cleared all my backlogs and have built a complete new Explore It My Way, what’s next? Of course, it’s time to get ready to start blogging again! But, the worst impact of the incidents that happened lately was that I couldn’t think anything out of the box. It was like I started running out of new ideas and thoughts!! So, I was continuously thinking of the steps to overcome it. With a lot of hope and without wasting more time, I decided to start with Social Media first. I started joining the blogging events that were happening on the blogging communities in Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc.. Here I met other fellow bloggers who were posting daily and working with dedication for their blogs. So, that’s it, I got my inspiration. Connecting with like-minded really helped me!! And, I think I am ready for all!!
Goals and Tasks Checklist
Considering the fact of consistency, it’s really important to set goals and make plans to achieve those. It’s not only about creating content and promoting it, but all other blogging activities involved in keeping your blog running smoothly. So, to start with, here are few of my plans,
- Set a schedule and stay consistent
- Set weekly goals to help not to slip back into blogging silence
- Delete spam comments and respond to new comments on daily basis
- Stay positively active on all social media to promote the blog and content on daily basis
- Update plugins and themes on immediate effect whenever required
- Optimize the database on monthly basis
- And of course, take part in other blogs activities and read a lot for motivation and learning
It’s all set to start again!!! Honestly, I know it’s a tough job to figure out where and how to start after losing touch with your audience for such a long time and I am not expecting my first post to be my best one but definitely I’m going to give my 100 percent. Wish me all the luck!!!
