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.
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.
