LET'S TALK: Finding the Time to Blog
Why would you ever want to take a time out from this community, you ask yourself. Are you crazy? Sure, it's hard work sometimes, but the rewards--and I'm talking the intangible ones here--friendship, community, fun, make up for that--
Then life gets in the way.
Family emergency, deadlines at work, exams... your husband taking two and half months vacation from work and having a baby.
Life has well and truly gotten in the way for me.
And, as the dust has settled, and life has regained a new sense of normalcy (though a very different kind) I've rediscovered an itch. I've missed you. You, my friends, my blog, this community, and the BOOKS. Oh oh OH the books.
Yet, I'm left with a question: how do you manage blogging around your busy lives? Mums: how do you blog with children? Students: how do manage blogging with school, study and work? Those who write: where do you make the time, balancing writing with day jobs, families, and often an impressive social media presence?
I'm curious as to how you about finding time to blog in your busy lives--especially when, in order to blog, one must also READ. I'd love you to share any hints or tips, my friends!
P.S. OH HOW I'VE MISSED YOU ALL!

I receive books from publishers, in exchange for honest reviews. When this is the case, I state so at the end of each post. This doesn't effect my review of the book, or my opinion, and I receive no monetary compensation for anything posted on this site.
When you click on a link to Amazon from www.saz101.com, I receive a small referral fee on any purchases made. It won't cost you any more to buy your books this way, but it does help to support this blog.
If you have any questions about any of the content on this site, contact me :)
