Have you had that thought about your blog sometimes? Sure you have, we all have.
Lately, it seems like more and more of the bloggers who started a few years ago are quitting their blogs, but one of the more surprising announcements was from a blog started to show off DIY projects. Young House Love, a hugely popular home improvement site (they’re currently writing their second book♦ and have had collaborations with brands like Target) decided to take a month off in September and decided not to come back.
We’ve all had a favourite TV show that went on for a season or two too long, so maybe quitting when you’re ahead is a good idea. It means that your readers don’t drift away, or feel disappointed, and you don’t feel obliged to keep posting, even when your heart isn’t in it any more.
Quitting your blog could also improve your blog. Sounds a bit backwards? Perhaps, but by quitting a blog that you have no love for, you might be inspired to start a new one in a different genre – we’ve talked before about switching topics on your blog!
What do you think – is it best to finish on a high? Would you make a big announcement, or just let things fade away?
