If you follow our blogging series then you’d know how we advocate for writers to have their own blog. Blogging is fun and when done the right way, it can yield amazing results. However, if your blog has been dormant for a while there are a few questions you may need to ask yourself.
Do I still enjoy blogging?
Why devote time and energy trying to revive a blog when you do not enjoy blogging? Maybe you did it because you liked what other bloggers were doing but you need to be honest with yourself.
Patiently allow your true motives to arise. If you genuinely love blogging then you can consider reviving it.
What commitment can you make?
Depending on your schedule, you have to ask yourself the kind of attention and energy you can devote to your blog.
Some bloggers run successful businesses currently and simply cannot take on new projects. Other bloggers work full time and cannot give the proper attention and energy to blogging in order to grow a thriving, full time venture.
Be honest. There’s no need resurrecting a blog you cannot commit to 100%.
Does the niche still exist?
Assess it, is your niche still relevant or do you need to evaluate things?
Imagine trying to resurrect a blog focused on typewriting for businesses. There’s no way that blog can succeed Niches like personal development, writing, and travel pretty much work now, and forever, as long as human beings exist. People want help improving their lives by improving themselves.
