Getting organised ready for the new year
I'm a mum, a wife, full time worker, homeowner and blogger who is just trying to make her way in the world. Sometimes, when the days are just passing me by, I sometimes feel like I'm desperately trying to tread water and stay afloat of all the things I'm supposed to do. I definitely haven't taken an easy path, but I'm certainly enjoying the journey. There will be no "woe is me" here, just simply someone who is constantly trying provide all that I can for my family, whilst being the best version of me that I can be.
Being a graduate of the recession, my chosen career path was no easy feat. In fact, so many hurdles (like the fact no one was hiring) lead me down a very different career path. Education. Although many people may think that this career, along with its fabulous holidays , is an easy one, I soon learnt that it was actually a great challenge and, at times, I struggled. Having said that, I do love my work.
Now, after two years of blogging, I'm starting to generate a regular income. Which is fantastic, but also brings along so many more pressures. As I work, full time, and want to produce content that my readers will like, I sometimes feel slightly swamped. This hobby of mine, has it become a chore?
No. But I am concerned that something soon will have to give. And as I look around my living room, with piles of washing everywhere, letters left unopened, newspapers from two weeks ago, it's safe to say my poor little house has suffered! Being organised is something I really need to work on, at home, work and with blogging too! I have downloaded social media schedulers like that of Hootsuite, in a bid to try and reach out to my readers a little more. I'm also wondering if I need to have specific "blogging" days. I don't want to put pressure on myself, as I would hate for blogging to become a chore. As, let's face it, I blog for me as well as for my readers.
My reason for this post is that I want to hear how you stay organised? Whether it be with your blog or at home, please share your posts below or leave ideas in the comments. With the New Year just around the corner, I would love to have already given this resolution a damn good kick start!
