When I initially contemplated starting a personal style blog not quite a year ago (I can’t believe that my first anniversary is only a week away!) I felt confident that it would be something I’d genuinely enjoy doing.
Firstly, it would be a way to nurture my love of creative writing…after all, english had been my favourite subject in school!! And I’ve always put a lot of thought into my “day off” outfits – no workout wear for me, even when I’m just running errands! – so all I needed to do was convince my ever-patient husband to take a few photos three times a week.
What I didn’t know then – but certainly do now! – is that this was only the tip of the iceberg as far as blogging goes!! Creating a blog post that I was proud to share online was one thing…but suddenly, I was “meeting” more and more amazing fellow bloggers from around the world that I wanted to support; which meant visiting and commenting on a regular basis.
And when you also work full-time (and have various household responsibilities, too – as most of us do!) finding a few hours to do this visiting can often become a bit of a challenge…I’ve been known to give up some beauty sleep in favour of squeezing in a little extra blog time!!
But we’re in the same boat, dear readers, with the same number of minutes in each of our days; so if we’re feeling guilty about a lack of time (which I’ve been hearing a fair bit lately!) we need to remember… tomorrow is just around the corner!!
P.S. If you do find yourself with a few moments to spare, be sure to click on my link about “full-time work” above…it’s rather eye-opening!!
