I don’t know about you, but I’ve been facing this problem recently. I have a hard time trying to find time to time to blog, which I love doing and live life, which I have to live (duh).
Sometimes, when I want to prepare posts and just blog, life gets in the way. (Why life, why?) And sometimes, when I want to experience life, blogging gets in the way. The worse part is, there is nothing you can do about it really.
I’m currently attending college as a sophomore student and between keeping my GPA up (did I mention that school just started again yesterday?), studying for tests, doing my homework, passing my classes, and working at my part-time job, I also have other hobbies I want to continue doing like playing Pokemon games, watching television shows, and doing all the other things I like to do. I know that other people are busier than I am: they have children, a full-time job, a family to take care of, etc. but they still manage to blog effortlessly like it’s nothing.
Lately, I’ve been struggling to find time to blog between doing all the other things I want to do. It feels like I spend almost all of my free time blogging: I write up posts, schedule posts, and find some new ideas for posts. Blogging is pretty much taking over my life. The bright side is that I have up to three weeks of posts scheduled, but that isn’t much.
Because of this, blogging personally feels more like a job now than something I like to do just for fun. Every morning I get up and wonder, do I have a post scheduled for today? Do I have anything to do for my blog today? It just gets tiresome. Don’t get me wrong, I love blogging, but there are those small moments where I’m just tired of blogging because there just isn’t enough time in the day to do everything that I want to do.
How do you balance blogging and life? Are you one of those people who can blog and live life effortlessly at the same time or are you like me, trying to balance blogging and life with no success so far? I want to know!
