This blog post was supposed to be Wednesday’s post, but instead I got distracted and started talking about something else.
So let’s try again.
We all know blogging takes up a lot of time. Not just the act of blogging itself, but the photography, editing, proof-reading, planning, emails, social media, SEO and more.
The dream for a lot of us is that we’ll have all the time in the world to blog when we want, but the reality is mostly a lot different.
Yes, we’re bloggers. But we’re also other things.
We’re employees, we’re managers, we’re parents, we’re girlfriends, we’re husbands, we’re part of a team sport, we have friends, hobbies, commitments to stick to. We have dentist appointments to attend, cars to MOT, grans to visit.
It’s likely a lot of us have times when we have less free time to spend blogging. This means that some things has to be put on the back burner for a while. For most of us, some of those things are blogging related. Though not for everyone. It depends on your priorities.
So here’s a list of things that seem to just not get done, in order of what I’ll drop first to what I’ll drop last.
- Sending out update type Tweets.
- Scheduling Pins.
- Taking washing off the airer and putting it away.
- Replying to Instagram comments.
- Deleting e-mails I don’t need.
- Keeping my room tidy.
- Sending invoices/e-mails.
- Replying to Tweets.
- Keeping up with Facebook blog groups.
- Updating my tech blog.
- Commenting on bloggers that have commented on my blog.
What do you stop doing first when you don’t have time for everything?
