10 Reasons to Stop Blogging

Ian Lurie Feb 25 2009

This is my last post on the subject, I swear. For a week at least.

  1. You hate writing. If you really, truly hate to write, why are you making yourself blog? Are you just a masochist?
  2. You made fun of a family member in a blog post, and now they give you the stink-eye at every get-together. Quitting is the only way to make it up to them.
  3. Your World of Warcraft character has really been suffering from neglect.
  4. Your kids can’t remember what you look like.
  5. You’ve worn out the keys on your keyboard.
  6. You’ve worn out your welcome on the internet (unlikely).
  7. It’s just not what it used to be. The thrill is gone. The ship has sailed. The bloom is off the rose. Or any other cliche you care to use.
  8. You’re just burnt out. There is no rule saying you can’t start back up again later. Stop for a while. Rest up.
  9. You haven’t made a million dollars blogging yet. WTF is wrong with you?!
  10. You got dumped off the AdAge Power 150. That seems to happen to me every week, so don’t take it so hard.

  1. 11. You’re banned from Google due to duplicate content which is a result from lack of inspiration.

  2. “Your World of Warcraft character has really been suffering from neglect.” but at my country dont have Wordld of Warcraft.

  3. Hi Ian, Maybe we could recommend your list to Dave Letterman LOL. Blogging for blogging’s sake will really lose its appeal after a while. Maybe its time to go offline for a while and live a life for once, just so a person could have material for the next post :)

    12. There’s twitter now! (from the same guy who brought us blogger.com nearly 10 years ago)
