Blogging with a full time job

Tuesday, 21 June 2016


I won't lie, this post is just to give me a bit of opportunity to moan.


I surely can't be the only one that finds blogging to actually be a momentous task sometimes?

I started blogging because I love to write and the idea of the whole blogging community seemed like something I desperately wanted to get involved in. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy blogging and everything that comes with it, but I can't help but get a little stressed out sometimes.

For some bloggers they are lucky enough (I guess that's the right word!) to have blogging be their full time job - that's a dream! Writing for a living would be amazing.

I'm sure that's stressful as well, I'm definitely not taking anything away from that. However I do get a bit swamped with trying to schedule and write posts frequently when I have a full time job as well.

Sometimes I feel like my blog will never grow the way I would like it to because sometimes I don't have enough time to dedicate to it. Which I hate because when I do post, I work really hard on the content I produce.

People like regularity I think and knowing when to expect a new post from someone really helps keep readers. I feel like I can't keep anyone interested if sometimes a fortnight passes without me updating!

Does anyone else feel like this?

That doesn't mean I'm suddenly gonna throw in the towel and bin off my blog; I like it too much, even if I'm my only reader. LOL.

Blogging is a nice distraction from work and I do get excited when I have a day off and I know I can dedicate it fully to my blog. It's a hobby, I guess! Although I just wish I had more time to spend on it.

Time management is definitely not my forte!

I would certainly appreciate any tips people can toss my way about organisation/scheduling posts/being inspired when you're also super busy.

  1. I'm so with you on this. Trying to juggling blogging while working full time can be a bit much. I mean, life happens and my blog isn't everything. I also have family, friends, work, and a social life to keep up with. It can be a pain to write sometimes but you have to figure out your own schedule and set aside time to write. (:
