My experience with the 3 month wall.
I was rushing around at the end of July trying to get some posts written and published so I could go out of town and not worry about my site. It was an extremely stressful trip, which included driving half-way across the country, with family, to do family business. We were strapped for time, with other obligations.
When I came home, I decided to do a review post that ended up being almost 5000 words! Honestly, I did not know I had that in me lol. I felt quite drained from that, so my next post was a more modest 1000 words or so. Everything was great. I was posting on time (my schedule), and generally feeling like I had a really good grip on it all...
And then I just completely lost interest in all of it. I went to my list of topics. Nope, not interested. The next day, I thought I might check my site for broken links and housekeeping issues, but I honestly did not care.
I was starting to think that I might have been wrong about what I could accomplish with WA and that maybe I did not really have the right stuff. This was very worrying, because when I first started, it was like a light bulb went off and I felt like I had found home with WA and building a website.
As well, I have felt like I was in the wrong line of work for many years now, so doing something creative in the hopes that I can help people seemed "right" to me. Is it possible that I was "wrong" about that?? That was scary!
And then I remember reading something about a 3 month wall. I found Jay's webinar, https://my.wealthyaffiliate.co...and I also went online to read up on this. It was a relief to discover that this phenomenon is common, though for some of us it comes at a different interval ( 4 months, 5 months, etc). It is like "writer's block"...where you just can't do it..the writing...the research...the chat...
It took me about 2 weeks to get over it, but I am over it now. I just wrote 3 posts and published them to get caught up a bit in my publishing frequency, and I have a new list of topics to keep me busy.
For anyone else who gets caught up in the 3 month wall of apathy, just know that it happens and that you can just ride it out until you feel better. If you feel like doing just some of the tasks for your site, then just do that. But if you don't want to do any of it, then don't. Go for a walk, visit friends, or go to a movie. Don't think about your website.
Ride it out, and then come back stronger, with a renewed purpose (or at least I did).
Best wishes to everyone in my WA family. WE GOT THIS!!
