Lately, I just haven’t wanted to blog. The time that I set aside to write is during Clara’s naptime (Henry no longer naps). All other times of my day are filled with training clients, working out, schooling, Travis and rehearsal. Oh and lest I forget spending time in the Word (which gives me the peace and patience to do all of the other stuff). Because Henry is now wide awake and deserving of my attention during my “blogging time”, I’m finding it harder and harder to sit down and get anything done. I don’t see this as a problem, just a little life shift. One which I’m totally on board for. One which I knew would come.
So where does that leave blogging?
First, I love blogging. I love writing out my thoughts and my rambles. I love having this outlet that is just for me. More than all of those things, I love the blogging community. I can safely say that some of my BEST friends have been made through blogging.
Like people that have been to my house, and I to theirs. Real friends. I didn’t know that I needed that until I got into blogging and now that I’m in the thick of it, I can’t imagine what my life would look like without these people.
The problem I’m having is the time commitment. It takes time to write a post (not too much – I can usually write something in 30 minutes or less). It takes time to promote your blog, to promote your friends’ blogs. It takes time to create workouts and fresh content. It just takes TIME.
I have ideas. I have passion. I have creativity. What I don’t have is TIME.
I don’t have a solution for this problem quite yet. I don’t want to stop blogging. I don’t want to go on a schedule where I promise a post on certain days per week. I guess all I really know right now is that you might be seeing a little less of me. Or the same. Who knows. It’ll all depend on if I find the time. Because, right now, I’m not willing to take the time from something else.
I think we call this a shift in priority.
QUESTION: If you blog, do you feel pressure to post often? If you’re a reader, do you stop following when a blogger becomes “sporadic”?
