NOW I Understand Being In A Blog Rut. Has This Happened To You?

I have been blogging since 2008 and yes, there have been periods of time when I think my words are pretty much spent.  'I've talked about this before' or 'No one's commenting so is anyone even reading my words?' or, a thought that happens more often than not, 'I re-e-e-ally want to write out this experience but if the people I'm writing about read this I would be mortified.  I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings'.  These thoughts, and some others, have held me in what I thought was a blog rut, but lately I am stagnant in my blogging and I can't seem to get out of it.  I'm sad!

For weeks I have approached my laptop in the morning and follow my routine of checking Facebook, my Twitter feed on Hootsuite and my e-mail.  I shook things up quite a bit by switching my review site (I have two blogs) from Blogger to Wordpress.org.  What a change this has been!  (Definitely trying to teach an old dog new tricks with this move!)  My e-mails have been slim, my Twitter back-and-forth is laid back and I am finding my desire to write to be slowly dwindling.  I feel tired.  I feel bored.  Which of course leads itself to me feeling sad.  

I have posts I have agreed to write for products/companies but I get caught up on this fun PicMonkey photo editing site.  I go to research a topic but I get distracted by something shiny on Facebook.  My words, my words seem, well, they seem to be disappearing.

Have you gone through a blog rut?  Have you felt your enthusiasm for blogging dwindle?  What was it like for you?  What did you do?
