I have a confession.
I have really been struggling with finding the time to blog lately.
I have finally gotten back into reading more lately – okay, I never stopped reading, but I slowed waaaayyy down. I’m still not reading nearly as much as I used to (pre-baby), but I feel like I’m on my way there. But then I need time for blogging. I really want to blog again! It’s on my mind a lot actually, but then other things always take precedence. Like cleaning. And cooking. And taking care of a tiny human???
Seriously though. How do you other parents do it? With working a full-time job and caring for my toddler, I just can’t seem to find the time to consistently blog. As you may have noticed, I have been popping on from time to time, but nothing like what I used to do. I’ll go months without posting! Pleeease feel free to share any tips on how to balance work, family, and various hobbies, while also finding time to blog! Because I also need time to spend with my husband and friends. And I like to watch TV/movies sometimes. And I also like to crochet. And I need to READ in order to provide reviews for my blog!
It sucks too because if you’re not present on your blog, people stop following you. But I’m also guilty of not being very present at all in the blogging community, so it’s definitely my own damn fault. But I don’t want to lose you guys!
I’ve also been quite sick the last few months – in and out of the hospital way too much for my liking! Hopefully now that things seem to be under control (I hope!!), I will be able to blog more? Maybe??? I still can’t see where it’s going to fit in on a regular schedule, though. You see, today I am home on a day off from work and my daughter is at daycare. Mom guilt aside, I’m happy to actually be getting some blogging time in! But how do I fit that in on a regular basis?
So. Let’s hear it. What’s your best strategy for finding the time to blog, read, and do ALL THE THINGS??? Something else to note is that I very much enjoy a full night’s sleep, so don’t even think about telling me to cut back on the ZZZs. Plus, momming is hard and I find myself pretty tuckered out at bedtime these days!
