No, I’m not dead, but my blog might be. After being able to be unemployed for five whole months I had all the time in the world to blog. It’s how I found blogging in the first place. But at 20 years old, you can’t really be unemployed for long, unless you were to get a “small loan of one million dollars“, which I don’t see in my future any time soon.
Balancing work, the gym, cooking, grocery shopping, social life, baby sitting, and all the other things life throws my way has not been easy for me lately. I’ve been working two part time jobs to make up for one full time job, but the two part time jobs were both scheduling me over twenty hours a week, and thus became one giant full time job and then some! I’m not very good at handling stress….ok, I’m terrible at handling stress. So I have to use my down time to relax and get other things done that I haven’t been able to do on the days I was working.
The whole point in me getting a part time job in the first place was for me to have time to work on my blog. Needless to say, my plan backfired. Now I have moved up in one of my part time jobs and will be able to quit the other. I’m ready to get back to doing what I love. I’m not going to lie, I contemplated deleting this blog, ever blogging again, and starting all over. But this is what I truly enjoy!
If I’ve learned anything about blogging in this first year it’s that consistency is key. When I started my blog back in May, I had more views in my first couple of weeks when writing every day, rather than having better content, but only writing a few times a week. Even though my writing wasn’t as good I was doing it every day.
My life is different now but the end goal hasn’t changed. I still want to write every day and eventually make it my career. It all takes hard work, time, and dedication. So be prepared to see more of my blog every week. Bemilieblawkins is back.
