The post How to Relaunch Your Blog After it Becomes Dormant appeared first on ProBlogger.
This post is based on episode 234 of the ProBlogger podcast.
Today I want to answer a question I get regularly from listeners: How do you relaunch a blog that’s died or become dormant?
I’ll lay out two scenarios for relaunching a blog, and then give you 11 things to consider during a relaunch.
Last week a ProBlogger reader asked for advice on how to relaunch their blog, which had been dormant for the past year. (They took a 12-month break from blogging.)
This is something many of us bloggers have to deal with at different times. There have been times where I’ve put my own blogs on hold – not ProBlogger or Digital Photography School, but other blogs I’ve put on hold that I may need to relaunch one day.
So it’s something I’ve thought about numerous times, and talked other bloggers through it as well.
Maybe your blog became dormant for family reasons. Maybe a health crisis forced you to put things on hold for a while. Or you may have simply lost the motivation or passion to keep the blog going.
Whatever the reason, many blogs have a period where they slow down (if not stop completely).
The first step in reawakening your blog is to thinking about where you and your blog are at right now. There’s no one piece of advice I can give you here, but assessing how you and your blog are will help you to determine what to do next.
And then you need to answer three questions about yourself.
