You can also try a different working space. You could move to the library, café or other public spaces that have Wi-Fi. Continuously look for new areas to work from. That way you will stay motivated to write.
6. Make friends, keep each other accountable.

It is equally important to have people around that you can talk to when you are struggling with something. It will be nice to get these things off your chest to help you get back to what you love doing.
To get friends in your blogging niche, join social media groups on Facebook, Gab, Whisper among others and reach out to people. On social media, you can engage with a lot of people, create conversations and make a lot of friends. This will keep you motivated as a blogger and encourage to write even more.
