How do mommy bloggers find the time?

The dream: post here every day

The reality: work, take care of child and get as much sleep as possible

I know I’m not the first person to have a blog and a newborn and others seem to be able to have kids and blogs so it must be me. The kicker is that I only work about 25 hours a week so one would think I have lots of time to write, yes?

It seems just when I sit down to write there’s a distraction that prevents me from even getting 100 words down.

Part of this is the way I think: I feel I have to have complete silence and the perfect writing evironment in my home office with the music and the lights just right. Perhaps pre-kid this was possible but now I just make a cup of coffee and do my best to sit hunched over a laptop at the kitchen table for twenty minutes in hopes I can get something written.

Priorities

Part of the problem is me. It’s much more fun to screw around with blogging platforms and themes for me than it is to actually write - at least at first. Once I get into the “zone” I can write well.

I really need to change this. I want to write here every day, but I can’t seem to get my act together enough to juggle the responsiblities of being a parent annd finding time to write.

I’m currently on a simplification kick to get rid of stuff I don’t need and focus on the stuff that’s important to me - which of course, is family first.

I just need to prioritize better. So, the clock resets - It’s day 1 again.

Let’s see what tomorrow brings.
