Today’s post is quite personal as I will be sharing how exactly I manage being a full-time mom and publisher. I’ve received quite a few requests on this topic so, I decided to share with you, how I manage to be a full-time mom to King + Jax, and also find the time to publish regularly on my blog and social media. I will be honest with you, it ain’t easy (social media can be very deceiving!) but it’s so worth it, trust me!
I started my blog 3 years ago. I needed an outlet from my corporate job, a hobby so to speak, that didn’t involve my work and/or mom duties. Yes, I could’ve just picked up a Yoga class—but instead I did something way better: I started blogging. Little did I know that 1.5 years later I’d quit my full-time corporate job to purse blogging full-time. It was a tough decision to make since my husband and I are parents but with a leap of faith it actually all worked out! I’ve now been blogging full-time for almost 2 years and I’ve never looked back to my corporate years. Ever.
…and now to the main question:
How do I manage to be a full-time mom and blogger?
First and foremost, if you want to become a successful blogger, i.e. publisher and you are a full-time mama then you need to make time for blogging even if that means that you will need to give up even more sleep! Yes, as mother’s we’re already sleep deprived but believe me, if you are serious about blogging you gotta take every minute to prepare for new content on your blog and social media.
Own a social calendar
Create content in advance, if possible. This helps me tremendously, I swear. Not only am I being super organized this way but it also helps scheduling my time wisely, especially since I work from home. For instance, I own a social calendar that has all of my projects due and publishing dates listed.
…last but not least:
Trust me, I have two kids, a 5 year old and an infant so if I can do this—so can YOU!
As always, thanks much for reading and don’t forget to leave a comment below! If you’re a full-time mom and/or blogger please, share with us how you manage it all!
