Today, we’re interested in knowing how you address that question, especially if you’ve been doing this for a while. If you have been around for years, how do you keep your material fresh? How do you continue to keep blogging fun? How do you not only grow an audience, but how do you keep them coming back for more? Think about it, post about it, link to it, and read about how other bloggers are keeping it real, fresh, and fun. Maybe we can inspire each other today!

New projects, redesigns, collaboratives–what do you do to keep blogging fresh for you? Post about your ideas and experiences, link up, and find inspiration in what other bloggers are doing!


I am not sure what I am going to do to keep it fresh this year. I think instead of changing it up I need to return to its roots. More, longer reviews; more Thoughts on a Thursday; memes which include commentary not just lists; these were what I loved about blogging but my life has interrupted.

I would like to have time to include a book chat and incorporate more social and interactive things but because of other commitments I know that I will not be able to keep this up.

I think one of the things that I would like to do to make this “fresher” is make my love of reading and blogging “fresher.” So I think while you might not see the physical changes here I will be trying to reach out more and read more. I will be trying to do more with online events like this one.

I am not sure that that will make this seem better but I think it will make the experience better for me.

    1. I am thinking about add Bloggiesta and seeing if there is one other. Three might be doable.

  1. When you have been blogging for so long, it really is hard to keep coming up with new and fresh ideas. For me, I love that you mentioned going back to your roots. That’s what I’m shooting for this fall — more reviews, more bookish chatter, etc. I’ve really gotten away from this and want to return to what got me started to begin with!
