For some lucky people blogging is their full time job but for me it's a hobby and sometimes a handy source of a little extra pocket money. So I need to earn a living - and running your own business can be time consuming and 'mind consuming'. Even when I'm not actively working I'm thinking about work. There isn't really a off switch at 5pm for me. Your own business is 24/7. So I no longer have as much free time as I did when I was a University. And with the free time I do have, I like to spend it with friends and family, I want to go out and do things (or watch a lot of YouTube videos).
I'm keen to go back to producing more blog posts again. I've missed being a frequent blogger. I think the best plan of action is to make time. Set aside a couple of hours on a 'quiet day' to write a few posts or take some blog photos. In the past I could write/shoot/edit a post all in one day. Now I don't have the luxury to do that, but I can find time to piece together posts as I go. I find myself struggling for content some days and I worry that a simple post about what I did at the weekend won't be interesting or entertaining enough for you, my readers. But I'm going to stop worrying about it so much and post what makes me happy. What some people will like, others will skip past, and vice versa.
I'd be interested to hear how many of you are bloggers as well as full-time workers. If you have written any posts similar to this one please leave me a link as I'd love to learn what steps you take to be able to blog consistently.
