Blog Woes – Style Rut

Posted July 15, 2016 by Andi in Blog Woes / 2 Comments

Style rut. It’s a thing. A real thing. You look at your closet and you see the same stuff you wear all the time. You see the same colors and patterns and think…I have nothing to wear. You look at your shoes and you think they are all boring. Well that’s currently where I am at. Not with my closet (I did just buy bright yellow ballet flats) but with my blog. My blog is in the style rut.

I love my blog. It is my maybe. It is where I put my time in when I’m not hanging with friends, reading or working (okay, or crafting), but right now I look at her and I see boring.


I have had the same blog layout for a year and a half and it just doesn’t seem to fit me anymore. It’s pretty clean and simple (which I LOVE), but it has no pizazz. It just doesn’t seem to be me anymore and I don’t know what to do about that. I don’t know how to change it and make it seem more exciting. I don’t know where to go to get a custom made design that isn’t going to cost me a ton of money that I don’t have. I have spent days looking at the free options on WordPress Themes and


There is nothing exciting. There is nothing that jumps out at me and says this is the one, this is worth the work I have to put in to make it my layout.

I am in a blog style rut and I just don’t know what to do about it.


Have you ever felt this way? Have any tips, suggestion, ideas?

  1. I DID feel this way right around the holidays this year! I ended up making a whole new blog (with no co-bloggers because although I loved where i was blogging before, I had my own ideas and wanted to break free and do my own thing) and released it back in January and I LOVE it. I had Taryn Knight make the graphics for me and it wasn’t that expensive! I highly recommend going with her if that is your style!
    I don’t know what it is, but sometimes starting over from scratch just does the trick for me! I hope you figure something out soon so you feel excited about blogging and your site again! Because I enjoy your posts and reading them!
    Best of luck!
