Juggling blogging, work and relationships. The struggle

Heyyyyy,

I wanted to share this post with you, because I recently started feeling the ‘struggle’ with trying to mange EVERYTHING in life! Does anyone else struggle with this??

I have only recently started blogging properly and investing time, but to be honest I have invested a LOT of my time, and so other things have slipped – not great.

Obviously, I work full time Monday- Friday, so I only really have the evenings and weekends to plan, take photos, write posts and reply to comments and emails etc. This means, sometimes I have to ‘skip’ a dog walk with my puppy, or ‘neglect’ my boyfriend as he likes to say, or say no to after work socialising. Obviously, I don’t like saying no, but I guess when you’re starting a blog you do have to invest quite a bit of your time to really get it going.

I am really enjoying this though, I enjoy writing posts and reading your comments about how you like what you see, it makes me realise the time i’m investing in this is worthwhile I guess. I also like getting to best tips and tricks from all other bloggers. I’ve learned a lot and found some really good products thanks to all you guys. So…THANK YOU!!

But, what I have realised, is that, although this is super fun and I will continue to invest a lot of time and effort into this, I do think it’s important not to forget ‘real life’.Β I think it’s important to realise this now, as later down the line I can see that it may not be so easy to realise.

With this in mind, I have set aside two days a week to post on my blog. I am going to try and stick to Wednesday’s and Sunday’s, so keep an eye out on updates πŸ™‚Β 

Does anyone else have this struggle? Let me know, I’d love to here people’s solutions.

    I have a full-time job and a boyfriend (trying to find a house) so blogging for me always comes in peaks and troughs because there are times where I’m really motivated and on a bright day I’ll take loads of photos and write posts but in December I hardly wrote any posts due to work being so busy!
    I’m sure we’ll find a regular schedule that will settle into place soon πŸ™‚

      Thank you so much for making me feel normal! It’s just been so manic since starting this blog because I never seem to have enough hours in the day to get things done and have time for myself and my boyfriend/friends/family but I guess getting a schedule together is the easiest way to manage time. Glad you’re with me on this one! xx

    Great post. As a fairly new blogger myself I am finding the same. The struggle is real but I love writing and taking the photos so much it keeps me going. Thanks for making me feel normal. Xx

    It’s true, blogging does take up a lot of time! I’ve tried finding the balance between dedicating my time to blogging and spending time with family as well as keeping on top of school work. So far just staying as organised as I can is helping x

      Yes I guess you are right, it’s definitely finding the right balance. As much as I love doing this, I don’t want to neglect the people/things I love. It’s like I have two jobs going. Thank you for this, I definitely need to be be more organised and have a structure! x
