Hey there Adventurers!
Welcome to another discussion post, so today we’re talking about the struggles of being a blogger when life kind of just gets in the way, tips on how to keep blogging even when you’re struggling to find the time and how I personally fail miserably at doing all of the above!
So the main reason for this discussion post really is that I could use some tips on how to juggle blogging and life, around a year ago I started my own business, which is very time consuming in itself, I also work 40 hours a week (not including travel time to and from work), so for me blogging has been something I just haven’t had time for, currently I have a week off work and I’m making some time to get some blog posts written in advance… That’s tip number one from me! Spend a day or two writing up a few blog posts and schedule them for later in the week, this has been a life saver for me throughout my whole time blogging, sometimes there’s just not enough days in the week though!
So how do you do it? How do you juggle life, work, reading and blogging? It seems like it’s impossible sometimes. Tip two would be to definitely get the WordPress mobile app, being able to type up a quick blog post on the go and comment on other people’s blogs is super handy, I’m out of the house a lot so without the app I have no idea how the hell I’d be able to still blog to be honest.
Tip number three is to make time, sometimes it’s really hard, I’m probably the worst person to actually be handing out this advice but if you can spare an hour or two a week, you can get one or two blog posts written up. I suppose when it really comes down to it, you could say that it depends on your priorities, I love my little corner of the internet and when I don’t have time to post for months it sucks, but work and my business are my top priorities right now, that’s not going to change anytime soon either.
Personally for me, if I can post once a week and comment on other people’s posts, then I’m happy because right now (when I’m not on holidays from my day job) that’s about all I can manage, and that’s got to be good enough. But I would really love some tips from you as well, because if I can post more then I’d love to do that, so come share your wisdom with me, please 😀
