When Do You Find the Time
« on: Mar 10, 2012 @ 08:31 PM »
I'm curious what most mom bloggers schedules look like. When do you find the time to blog?
Right now my 1 yr old has a short nap in the morning and afternoon so I find time then (somehow). However, number 2 is due in July and I have no idea when I will find the time to continue blogging - yet I see these super blogging moms pumping out multiple awesome posts each weekday!

Best feature of blogging? Save to draft!!!

I try to blog whenever I can, but its so hard with a little one needing attention. I actually get up earlier in the morning just so I can have a clear head and organize my thoughts.

My DD has two shorts naps during the day, and is very dependant in between, so I try to take advantage of the happy times!

I try to stick on a schedule where I post EVERY Tuesday and Thursday morning. But I also ONLY post on Tuesday and Thursday morning. That way I never have dry weeks or months. I can't stand reading the blogs where every post starts off by saying, "Its been forever since I've blogged."
Sometimes when I have extra time on a Sunday afternoon or something, I write like 3 posts. But I never post them immediately--I wait until Tuesday and Thursday morning to post.
It works. I think its helpful to have those days almost as due dates for me, but to also have the luxury to be able to write them ahead of time to be able to post.
Nothing that I write about it SOOO time sensitive that it has to be posted immediately.

I blog when i have enough time and inspiration for a post. I dont force them or create a routine...i tend to just babble and get bored of my blog then.. and if im bored.. my readers will be. I try to read other blogs when i can though.. i love looking into other peoples lifes.. seeing what they like and whats going on, and generally just feeling like im getting to know them that little bit more with each post.

I blog when I have time.  I do not have a set schedule b/c I have to many things going on.  I find time in the evenings when baby goes to sleep, chores are done, house in order and I can just sit, watch tv and write. I save it and revisit before publishing. There are times when I write a few at a time, maybe an opening sentence here, a paragraph there, a picture here a video there.  It's a work in progress.  If I have something that's I really want to post, I post that day/night and I try my best to proofread first. I also do not like blogs that start off with .... I haven't blogged in a long time.....
Also, I do not believe that every post has to be a long essay. Sometimes,  a quote will do, or a short conversation you had that was funny, or maybe a picture... :-) hope this helps.

i do it as i have time and ideas.  if i am going to do it though, it is generally at night after the kids are in bed.  my husband works nights so i am here alone a good chunk of the time.

sometimes the ideas come regularly and sometimes not so much.

hope that is helpful :)

I blog when inspiration hits and just fit it in around baby girl's naps/ quieter times. The ability to schedule posts is the feature I use the most, and if I know I'm away or busy for a few days I'll prepare something to publish automatically.

Im pretty new, and Im sure I do not post as much as I should. I am still trying to get a feel for it and get my name out there. But Im trying to set a schedule. I want to post at least once a day. I am also a college student besides being a mom of 3.

Omgee! You and I are in the same situation.  My 1 yr old daughter has 1 morning nap and 1 afternoon nap.  I try and squeeze sometime in there but it's mainly at night when she's asleep for the night.  I'm also expecting again in July and have wondered how I was going to do it! Thanks for posting!
