Balancing blogging and motherhood can be tricky at times. There’s a fine line between “work hours” and “real life hours” and many times they intersect. But it is possible to find balance and thrive in both your roles as a work-at-home-mom and devoting your time and energy to your family.
Have you ever wondered how your favorite bloggers spend their days balancing both blogging and motherhood?
To be honest it’s a fine balance, and sometimes I don’t always get it right.
I’m a blogger but first and foremost, I’m a wife and mother. I run a business out of my home which, as any other WAHM will tell you, can get kind of tricky sometimes.
There’s a fine line between “work hours” and “real life hours” and if I’m being completely honest, many times they intersect. For one thing my three young children aren’t school age so they are always around. And then there is the reality of working in your home so you are constantly distracted by all the housework, laundry and other projects calling out to you.
There are those few precious days where I get to escape to a nearby coffee shop or library to have uninterrupted work and writing time but those are few and far between. Most of my work happens right in the midst of our busy home, noises and all.
I’m constantly getting comments on my blog or emails wondering how in the world I’m running a blog and managing a home with three young children? Some days I do better than others but for the most part I’m just doing the very best I can with the hours I have available to me.
