Finding Time To Blog …

Sometimes I feel just the shoemaker and his children who go without shoes because he’s too busy taking orders for everyone else’s shoes. Sure, I have downtime just like everyone else, but I often find myself NOT doing anything that is work-related, such as reading a book or watching TV – again, just like everyone else.

I’m facing the harsh reality that I have not written nearly enough on my blog. It’s not from having a lack of material, certainly – after all, I CAN find time to post items on Facebook on a very regular basis.

Why do I find it so difficult to set aside time to blog? I constantly tell my clients and other professionals that you should post weekly or, if you don’t have the time to do it weekly, post every other week. Why can’t I follow the same advice I give others?

I have a very close friend who recently started a blog. She’s doing it at warped speed. I don’t know how she finds the time to post so often -and I don’t understand how most of the other bloggers I know post as often as they do either. I’ve even had clients tell me they would be very happy if I would post some of their own blog entries on my blog for additional exposure. I’m glad to do that, but I think it’s kind of an odd thing to fill your own blog up with someone else’s material.

Above all else, I am a writer and I observe life happening around me. I know this and also know I need to draw from these observations to provide more content for my blog. I should take the same advice I give others: make yourself an appointment and carve 30 minutes out each week to write your blog.

Does anyone else experience this? Surely I’m not alone!
