A Mom Blog Social Network
I am hoping to get some helpful tips from this discussion as I am struggling with this. Of course I love my family and want to put their needs first, but how do I not turn into a walking zombie from staying up til 2a.m. and be successful with my blog/website?
Thank you for your support!
You know, I tried the scheduling thing. I thought it would work for me. But for some reason, my kids just don't respect that schedule! LOL! Obviously having a little boy under 1 doesn't allow much room for scheduling BUT I have found a way to make it work. It's going to sound crazy. Seriously, you're going to roll your eyes at me. But my saving grace has been the "Good Enough" Rule.
If I can say something is "good enough" then I walk away from it until later. Until I have a few extra minutes. You know, like that increasingly rare day of children taking longer naps. Or actually playing in their magical room of toys for more than 10 minutes.
This may not be the best advice but it works for me. And I still manage to keep my house "company ready" (minus the laundry room. Everyone needs a chaos area. Right?) and take bubble baths occasionally. ;)
For me blogging is my wind down time. As a single parent since I don’t have anyone to talk to about my day I use my blog as to simply explore and release my feelings it’s my WOOSAH moment.
