Two To Go
But despite the 4th of July plans that I am making and all the decorating that I am doing with flags and red, white and blue colors, I am really excited about July for another reason. Wonder what? [...]
Because I am going to start blogging intentionally! I am making goals, making monthly plans, weekly plans and even daily plans. You see when I started this blog I had absolutely NO idea how much work was involved in it all. It seemed like a good idea, I liked to write, and my social media posts were getting so long that the error message was popping up often. "Error message?" you ask. Yeah! The one that says the post is too long to post. Seriously! So, a blog would be a more appropriate place for me to share life.
I must admit that I love the idea of getting paid to blog. I don't know how people do that or even where to start but I think it would be a perfect fit while I am at home raising my kiddos. I guess we will see what happens. But if it doesn't happen, it isn't going to be because I didn't try or that I did not have a plan.
Today perhaps even as you are reading this, I am creating my editorial calendar, a binder to keep my stuff organized and even scheduling my blogging time into my day so that I don't feel like the Jackal and Hide mom. You know the one where you are sweet and nice one minute but then you snap when you get interrupted. Yes guilty as charged. But I did not like being that way so I quit blogging, well dramatically reduced. Now I realize that instead of quitting, I need to manage better. So that is what I am doing! And I have some awesome plans for July! You will not want to miss it!
So how about you? If you are a blogger: Do you use an editorial calender? How do you manage it all while finding balance? Can anyone give me tips about how to blog "full-time"? I would love to hear! And if you are not a blogger, how do you manage life? Any tips you tried that has dramatically changed your life? I would love to hear from you too!
