The Balancing Act of Blogging and Working

balancing read my blog card on finger

First, I’d like to clarify that while blogging IS work, I currently work a full-time job and use the terms to separate my day job from my blogging activities. This week, I made the mistake of not pre-writing as much as I needed and wasn’t able to get my blog posts organized for their usual 8am schedule post time. That means I had to write for my blog some on my lunch break and in the evenings when I got home. That’s totally fine, but normally I just work on my fiction in the evenings.

Anyway, this week has been weird because I have been figuring out how to not blog on company time and still get everything posted on time. The short version of the story is I haven’t been able to, so my blog posts have been a little late this week. So, LESSON LEARNED! I will pre-write on the weekends. Geez.

Dear HR Department, I’m writing this on my lunch break. Please don’t fire me. Thanks.

Excited to post my short story tomorrow! That one WILL be up on time.
