Book Blogger Confessions is a meme that posts the 1st and 3rd Monday of every month, where book bloggers “confess” and vent about topics that are unique to us. Feel free to share, vent and offer solutions.
Today’s Topic: How does blogging effect your *real* life? Are friends and family supportive? Do you find that blogging cuts into family time? How do you strike a balance between the two?
Thought: Sometimes I wonder how I balance anything in my life. I can get so focused on something, especially projects centered around websites, that I will block everything else out. It’s not exactly to the point where I don’t shower for a week, end up with bird’s nest as hair, and let the garbage bin overflow, but the place can get a little disorganised. I will wash clothes, but not put them away, or will let my emails pile up…
Oh wait, this happens naturally for me anyway because of my health. I must be getting confused.
I’ve learnt not to get so crazy with blogging. If I need to take a step back or if something else is going on then I will focus on other areas of my life. I do love blogging, but it’s not the be all and end all. I don’t want it to consume my time or me so I make sure, when I’m regularly blogging, that blogging isn’t the only thing I do. I purposely sit down and do more than one post in a blogging session so I can schedule them all and then don’t have to blog every day or can keep it down to once a week.
And now I have to go because my rabbit just sprayed all over me for the second time today and on my Mac. Oh joy! Who has time to blog when they have a spraying rabbit running around their house? I love smelling like pee!
