Book Blogger Confessions | 04.01.2013


Book Blogger Confessions is a meme that posts the 1st and 3rd Monday of every month, where book bloggers “confess” and vent about topics that are unique to us. Feel free to share, vent and offer solutions.

Hosted by For What It’s Worth and Midnyte Reader. Check out the Book Blogger Confessions Schedule to see what topics are coming up.

Today’s Topic:  How does blogging affect your *real* life? Are friends and family supportive? Do you find that blogging cuts into family time? How do you strike a balance between the two?

Ha! I consider blogging to be part of my “real” life – it’s just another extension of me, hanging out on the cyberintervirtualwebs. My friends and family are supportive, but I’m still in the early stages for my blog. I’ve only been blogging regularly for three months, so I’m still getting content and timing adjusted.

I try to draft posts early, like on weekend mornings or during lunch breaks; that way I can maximize time with family and friends. I have a dedicated time set aside and I don’t feel pressured to choose one or the other. When I get home from work, I don’t like to feel like anything is hanging over me so I can spend time with the fella and Huckleberry (Huckleberry does get a little antsy when I spend too much time camped in front of my laptop, regardless of whether I’m at my desk or on the couch).

What about others? How does blogging (whether it’s about books or not!) affect your “real” life?

    Normally blogging doesn’t interfere with my “real life,” but I do make time to write posts like I would for any other hobby. I knew I wouldn’t have any time to blog during my recent move though so I took a little break. If I didn’t have time to read, it seemed a little silly to attempt to keep posting while insanely busy with other things! I think taking an “official” break was definitely the right move for me and I would do it again in the future if I needed to focus my attention elsewhere and come back refreshed. Even though blogging isn’t a “job” I think I benefit from a little vacation every once in a while!
