Blogging Time.

I'm finding it hard to find the time to blog at the moment. I have so much going on life wise I can't keep up. I have a full time job, and in the evening I have responsibilities at home and spend as much of the rest of my free time with my boyfriend. Any time I have to free and to myself, I find I use winding down and relaxing, leaving me hardly any time to blog properly. Blogging does relax me but I find I need to be in the right frame of mind to blog happily and without it feeling like work. After a long day I find it feels so much like work I don't want to, and I like to blog when it feels like something I can get excited about, enjoy doing and being a part of. At the moment, there's so much going on I haven't had the time to do this.


It's lead me to believe that scheduling is probably the best way to keep blog posts posted regularly, but  I hate scheduling blog posts. I don't see anything positive about it unless I know I want to post something on a certain day and know I won't be about to do it. That's my only exception. What it is, is that I hate waiting to see my post go up, and knowing that it's ready and written, waiting to go live.
Simply putting it, I like posting what I've written on the day, there's so much more satisfaction of seeing that post go live on my little blog to gain from it that way! It makes me happy, I feel like I've achieved something and it gets me excited to see what attention it attracts.

I also feel that if I don't blog often enough, I'll lose readers, and I'll be letting any readers I have down. It feels like I'm not blogging properly. Regular blog posting, or a blogger who posts when she can? I prefer a blogger who posts when she has the content, as I'll always keep up to date on my favourite bloggers to see if they've posted.

I don't take blogging too professionally either; which is where I think the previous point comes in, and maybe I should take it a little more professionally? I'd love to be big time like LLYMLRS,  Zoella or Milkteef. But as if that's going to happen, lol! I'd love to be a good blogger is all, great if I could be! I think. I want people to love what I write and read it mostly... And with my lovely readers, I get that already.

I have so much I want to write about at the moment. So much I want to review and photograph, and so many outfits and post ideas I have. Where has the time gone though? I never have the time to enjoy my little blog space... And I miss it.

I know this is a bit of a depressing post, but I did just think: "maybe I'll just blog about it". (And yes at almost 1am. I'm supposed to be sleeping this cold off!) And I'm also very sorry if it is a bit mish-mash... As I said, cold, late, blogging problems. It helps to write about this sort of thing and share with fellow bloggers who may also feel this way or previously have felt this way. I'd love to know how you manage your blogging time and how you feel about you and your blog. Do you take it professionally, do you plan in your posts or do you post spontaneously? Leave me a comment below and share!
