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.
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?
