In the year and four months since I started working at Campbell, my blogging dropped like a rock.
There is the primary reason, being that I just don’t have the same amount of time that I used to (you know, when I didn’t have a job) to write. There’s also the fact that I live on my computer until 6-7pm at work, and coming home and writing after working and cooking dinner seems daunting.
An event at work where I taught people what Pinterest was & how to use it.
And there’s also this nagging feeling inside of me where I shouldn’t blog about my silly life, that if I want to blog, I should blog about something useful and work-related to help others in my industry and to use it as a platform to further career and connections.
But at the end of the day, I miss blogging. I miss writing down my thoughts, I miss being able to scroll through the previous year to see all that we’ve done. I miss the connection that blogging gives to myself, where I’m a little more self-aware and reflective of the way I spend my time.
Also, having a blog encourages me to do cool things that I would later want to write about.
But the questions still remain: Where on Earth do I find the time? How do I recommit myself to this practice? Should I marathon-blog on the weekends when I have a little more time? Should I carve out the time in the evenings after dinner? I know that the time exists for me to continue blogging, but it’s about maintaining a realistic schedule. (How the hell do people with kids live??)
Is anyone still out there? If you’re still blogging, what is your schedule like and how do you fit it in? Do you have a routine?
