"This is an official entry to Dainty Mom's guest post challenge on How To Find The Time To Write or Blog."
As a full-time work away from home wife and mom, it's really hard to keep up the momentum of my blog; including the time to write.
I've been blogging for four (4) months now (yes, it's still young), but I can say that writing a post is very time-consuming.
I try to collect ideas all the time so I'll have an archive of things to write about, and I write as fast as I can.
I Make The Time. As one of my life's rules, I will make time for the things I consider important. Since I have committed myself to Blogging, I will try my best for this journey to be successful.
My next step is to Find The Time. Right now, I write every weekend while hubby and kids are asleep. However, when I find the rush to write, I do it right after work when the kids are in school, and hubby and baby are still sleeping.
Tip: Try to find your dead spots. These are times in our week that we are not really very busy (or, honestly, we're just wasting time); surfing the web looking at funny videos of cats doing cute things, taking ages to make a cup of coffee while we gossip with colleagues, calling/texting loved ones during work hours or even just day-dreaming. Why not plug these 'dead spots' and use them to write blog content?
Lastly, Plan the Time. I am now trying to create an Editorial Calendar; it's like jotting down all the ideas comes up in my mind to my handy-dandy notebook. And at the of the day, I'll just sort it out to create what and when to write.
Remember, if you're really serious about Blogging, commit yourself. It's like you're in or out. And, I hope that my tips above will help you not only to like to write but to love the passion of writing like I am feeling right now.
