This week has been one of those mentally draining weeks, I am shattered before 9pm most nights this week! But it has made me wonder about the amount I try to take on. It’s also making me think about my blog (maybe a little too much!)
Not only have I got a 3-year-old and a 19 month old, I have to work 28 hours, do the school run in my lunch break 2 times a week then to add to that my studying of over 55 hours in the evenings (plus anything extra I add) over the coming 3 months. One of the joys of being a working mum! Not only do you have the working week to contend with but the everyday household chores when you get home.
Then comes other things into the mix, I help on the pre-school committee, am the community manager of the local Made for Mum’s neighbourhood and look after the local Teething Bling Page for Bedfordshire.
Then there is my blog, now I love my blog. I have put so much time and effort into designing, running & blogging over the last 7 months, learning how to go from blogger to self hosted (google is my friend!) but I’m starting to feel a little overwhelmed if I am completely honest. With so many fantastic blogs out there I feel like I’m drifting into the background a little and slipping away into the black hole of bloggers past.
Now this blog is for me, especially the latest Project 366 – I love this and am enjoying every minute. However regardless of what people say you find you notice stats & rankings. When they go up, great! However when you’re expecting a good month as its your best month yet and you slip over 100 places the wrong direction it does knock you a bit regardless, when you put your heart and soul into something you want it to be the best it can be.
So I think firstly I need to get some sleep! I’m knackered lately, then I need to clear my head and think about priorities and what I enjoy the most then work from there, hoping it becomes clearer on a fresh head and in turn freeing me up some spare time to just be me without the stresses and strains!
