I have been struggling this week. Between having to drive my husband to work and pick him up, working in the salon, working my Young Living business, trying to keep this blog updated, having to network and market the blog, photography jobs, and homeschooling I am burning the candle at both ends. All of these things in my life are good things, but it don’t have balance in my life. Something has to go.
I don’t want to give any of these things up, and some I simply cannot if I want to be able to pay our rent and feed my child.
So how to choose?
I haven’t made any permanent decisions yet, but I am looking at which of my commitments show the most return based onto the effort I put into them. That would rank this blog right at the bottom.
I have blogged for a few years, but I only got serious about it in January. I have pretty faithfully kept up with it since then, not to mention the countless hours spent promoting it, reading books and articles about how to promote it, networking, etc. I have a great base of loyal readers, but my audience hasn’t grown a great deal and I am by far spending more money than I am making to keep it up.
It makes me sad to think about quitting my blog. And maybe I won’t. But it’s on the table right now.
I don’t want to be one of those people who paints the picture that I have it all and can do it all. No one can do it all, and I have no desire to be that over scheduled.
