I'm feeling a little up-to-my-eyeballs with the blog, if you know what I mean.
Don't get me wrong, I'm still very attached to this little hobby of mine, but even hobbies need a break sometimes.
I'm just sick of applying what (very) little technological finesse I have to figuring out all kinds of kinks in the system. Sitemeter, Internet Explorer, widgets, HTML, feeds -- it's all starting to sound like Charlie Brown's teacher in my brain. I'm tuning it out.
It's just that I have little time to blog as it is, and it's clear that the more you want to do with your blog, the more time you need to devote to it. I would love to be able to leisurely read my favorite blogs, think of something profound to say on my own blog, and then spend time crafting a lovely post.
It ain't gonna happen, my friends. At least not these days.
I tend to burn the candle at both ends by trying to blog early in the morning or late at night, but both methods leave me cranky and pressured to use my time to do other things around the house.
I know, I'm grumpy. And I know I've blogged about this before, but I still can't find a workable, long-term solution.
So while I give myself a computer time-out (just for a day or two), maybe you can leave me some ideas as to how to make it all work. I'm a big believer in systems and schedules (They don't call it German efficiency for nothing!), so maybe you can share yours.
How do you balance daily blogging with all of the responsibilities that come with running a household? Do you post sporadically when the inspiration strikes you? Or do you strive to post something daily, no matter how brief? Do you have a dedicated time of day for blogging? Do you write a whole bunch of posts and then schedule them?
Seriously, I need to know. Help a blogger out, would you please?
Something pretty to distract you from all the crankiness.
