We’ve always heard that there is time for everything and if you do anything at the wrong time, you will be making a mistake. You know as much as I do that it’s not easy to maintain a blog but, if you have good blogging strategies then, it will be much easier for you.
There are some situations that you will find yourself in life and you will not feel like doing what you usually love to do and if you go on forcing yourself to it, you might end up regretting your actions later. So, it’s always better to pay attention to yourself and do things when you know you can do them.
In this post, I want to highlight some of the conditions that are not good to blog on and if you force yourself to, you might be committing a sin against yourself :).
Never You Force Yourself To Blog:
1. When you’re tired and feeling sleepy: This is the worst time to blog. Whenever you’re tired and you feel like sleeping, its better you succumb to it and don’t blog in fact, don’t go close to your laptop.
You’re not made of wood and as such, you need to pay attention to your internal self. God is not stupid and if you try to work when you’re feeling sleepy then, you’re somehow trying God. I know it’s good to be stubborn sometimes but, blogging/working when you should be sleeping is even dangerous to your health.

I’ve done this before and it ended up causing me an acute headache and joint pains. I’m sure you don’t want to experience that because; you will end up spending the money you’re actually trying to earn on drugs. Don’t see your blogs as more important than your health because, you can only blog when you’re healthy. If you break down because you were depriving yourself sleep then, will you be able to blog again?
This is why you need to take care of your health first because blogging because “Health is Wealth”. So, whenever you start having the feelings of tiredness and sleepy, the best thing for you to do then is to go and have some rest, take some sleep and at the end, you will discover that you’ve been filled with more strength and energy to blog.
2. When you’re worried and de-motivated: Some time ago, I wrote a post about the best time to blog. We all have those times of the day when we feel much more motivated to blog. Mine is early in the morning between 4-6 AM and when I’m writing at this time, the idea keeps flowing unlimitedly. And if I try to blog or write when I’m not motivated, I won’t achieve anything.
There are also some times when you will be worried or disturbed by one thing or the other and it’s not advisable to blog at such state. The best thing you can do in this kind of situation is to go out, take a long walk and have some fresh air. Even if you must publish a new post on your blog the next minute, if you’re disturbed, its better you don’t write that post because you will be wasting your time creating a junk article.
It’s always our duty to motivate ourselves. You can either find motivation by reading some books or reading some blog posts but, the main thing is to leave blogging and find something that will put your mind at rest and also inspire you once you’re worried.

3. When you have nothing to say: We all know that ideas come and go and when you don’t have the idea needed to do something, you cannot do anything. Some of us have read somewhere before that it’s good to be updating our blogs on a daily basis, while this can be good at least, it will make you to be famous but at the same time, if you have nothing to say, its better you keep quiet and stay away from the keyboard.
You should not be writing and blogging just for doing it sake, whenever you publish a new post on your blog, its better for your readers to find it interesting and informational rather than just writing because you just have to write.
If the motivation is not there then, keep off. Go find something else to do else, you will be writing bullshits which will in turn tarnish your image in the blogosphere. So, forget about publishing a new post everyday thereby filling your blog with crappy contents, only write when you know you have something very interesting to say. This will end up boosting your authority in the industry.
If you made it compulsory that you must be publishing new posts on daily basis then, you should find a team that will help you out. I know so many bloggers who publish up to 5-10 posts on their blog per day but, they are not doing it all alone. They have a network of writers that are writing for them. So, you can as well go ahead and do it.
I know there may be some other conditions that are not good to blog when we found ourselves in them but, I will leave you to mention those. Please, let me know what you think about this post on the comment section. Do you have any other conditions to add here? Let’s discuss further via the comment section below.

Happy New Week.
