I Quit

Not really,

but I almost did.

I’m over at Theta Mom today discussing blogging and burnout and finding balance.

Stop by to read the three things I changed to maintain my sanity and my blog.

Don't worry, we're not going anywhere.

    What GREAT information! I post 5 days a week right now and with the cooking, purchasing, researching and snapping photos along with blogging – it can be exhausting! Right now, tho…I love it! I’ve considered going down to 3 days a week, but I cook every day….

    I have found one thing that has given me balance – I do not hop on the computer until the evening. My husband is retired so the day time is ours. After dinner is made and photos are snapped…I do the dishes and blogging begins. I’m usually in the living room with him and we’re still together.

    He’s been amazingly supportive – loves the food and is thrilled with the personal satisfaction I get from blogging….so it’s a win/win for me.

    I love this post! What a great blog! I think this is so important and I think we change as writers and people and need to tweak our schedules. Personally, I am too overwhelmed if I subscribe to a blog and get a new one every day. It’s just too much. Three times per week is the sweet spot in my opinion. And just spending time with the kids and trying to unplug from social media is the best medicine. My children no longer ask me to put down the phone or get off the computer!!

    I’ll go check it out too. It can be so hard to find balance sometimes. I feel like I’ve been there this past week ;)

    I found you through Faces of Loss. I’m hosting a blogfest for mothers who have lost infants or children. I would love it if you could join us and share your story. Thanks for your time.

    GREAT tips!

    I actually quit a blogging JOB because it was costing me sanity and time with my family (the latter being more important than the former, heh) even while helping me earn money at home. I couldn’t take the pressure and I had no time on weekends to see my daughter or husband. It was making me a wreck. I’d rather blog for no money when the urge strikes and have time to be with the people I love.
