How do you find time to blog?
I guess this leads to the question, “Why do you blog?”
I blog because (again) I love it. It’s a way to share my life and my daughter with extended family, it’s a way to share my thoughts on life and get feedback from other moms and friends all over, and I love to offer giveaways and honest reviews on the popular baby products out there. There are so many opportunities and I have met many amazing moms through blogging. Just last week I met a fellow blogging mama IRL (in real life) (Erin at Connected2Christ) and I’m so glad I did because we really are kindred spirits! We each have a baby girl born in May 2008, were homeschooled, are Christians, and have a passion for blogging (or maybe it’s just gabbing, lol). If I hadn’t had a blog, I probably wouldn’t have met her and we would have just smiled at each other in Target while we perused the adorable baby dresses and moved on, not knowing a potential good friend was right there. Not knowing that we both love social networking and have probably entered each other’s giveaways – I wonder how many other mom bloggers I pass on the street or even live in my apartment? Okay, I’m getting off track here, but you get my meaning. Blogging becomes a part of your life, a wonderful one!
So back to the original question: How do I find TIME to blog?
Well personally, it’s just a matter of priorities. My house might be a little more cluttered than the average non-blogger. We might have to have Top Ramen or mac ‘n cheese for lunch one day because I “got lost” in Blog Land. I don’t do a lot of mall-shopping, and my reading time has been cut way down (which is sad), but it’s worth it! I think people find time for what they want to do, for their priorities. My sister, for instance, has a full-time job 45 minutes away from home, has three kids, and does the majority of the planning, cooking, and cleaning herself. But she’s found time to sew some very adorable baby blankets, burpies, and bibs, run an Etsy store, and take college classes! How does she find the TIME? I have no idea, but obviously it can be done when you put your mind to it.
That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it! ;-)
