245: Feeling Stuck - What To Do When You Feel Like You've Done Everything with Bjork Ostrom

The Food Blogger Pro Podcast

The importance of limiting comparison, how to be flexible, focusing on your craft, and why posting frequency isn't very important with Bjork Ostrom. ----- Welcome to episode 245 of The Food Blogger Pro Podcast! This week on the podcast, Bjork reads an email we recently received and offers advice on how to overcome the feelings of feeling stuck. Feeling Stuck  Today’s podcast episode is actually one of our new favorites because it actually came together in less than a week. We received an email from a fellow blogger last week, and in the email, she describes why she’s feeling a bit stuck. She’s optimizing her posts, she’s creating pictures for Pinterest, she’s focusing on email marketing, but her traffic isn’t where she wants it to be. She feels like there’s something that’s she’s missing – a key that will unlock her blog’s potential. And that sounds familiar, right? “I’m doing all of these things…why am I not seeing results?” So this episode is all about that – what to do when you feel like you’ve done everything. You’ll hear this blogger’s anonymous email in its entirety in this episode, and I’m sure the sentiments that are shared in the email will sound really familiar to you. Then Bjork will offer some high-level advice and specific strategies that you can implement if you’re feeling stuck in a similar way. It’s definitely a different kind of episode, but we hope you enjoy it! In this episode, you’ll learn: The importance of limiting comparison How to be flexible and understand what you’re trying to achieve What it means to focus on your craft Why posting frequency isn’t super important Why it might make sense to “niche down” How to serve your audience Resources: 003: Sally McKenney from Sally’s Baking Addiction on Creating Success 018: How to Build an Online Business Without Blogging with Jadah Sellner from Simple Green Smoothies If you have any comments, questions, or suggestions for interviews, be sure to email them to podcast@foodbloggerpro.com.
