Wednesday Round Up

wednesday round up

Hey guys. Wow, this week has been quite interesting. My to-do list is legit long as hell, and I’m trying to keep my head above water, but it’s OK. We’ll get through it. But let me back up for a minute. 

Many of you already know this, but I work a full-time job and run this blog on the side. I say “on-the-side,” but that really means any waking minute of free time. Not every week is as insane as this one, but I’ll be honest. This week hasn’t been the best. On the blogging front, I’m having issues managing my time, staying focused, staying AWAKE, and brainstorming post ideas for next month. Although I’ve been doing this for almost 8 (!!) years now, I still don’t have all of the kinks ironed out. However, I wouldn’t be doing this if I didn’t 100% love it. 

If you’re a blogger and also work a full-time job, please don’t think you’re alone. I shared some ways on how to balance your 9 to 5 with your blog, but I know there are other helpful tips out there. Let’s chat about it. Comment on my Instagram with some tips and tricks you have for balancing it all. Maybe I’ll do a follow up post on the topic? 

Okay, back to the purpose of this post… Wednesday Round Up!
