Like I mentioned in a previous post, I do a lot of my reading on trains while traveling from the flat to work and vice versa. I’ve been having a hard time finding time to squeeze in blogging though. Moving from one country to another and starting a new job is a huge thing for me, especially since this is the first time that I’ve done something like this. Most of my weekends are spent catching up with old friends currently based in Singapore or going around to explore the city a little more. Week nights are filled up by errands and chores. Doing laundry, ironing clothes (which I hate), doing dishes and vacuuming are things that I never had to worry about when I was living in Manila. Oh and I also spend a lot of time online, talking to friends and family through communication apps. All of those take up time that I could use to read or blog but they are tasks that I need to do.
So I guess I just wanted to ask the rest of you, where do you find the time to blog when life seems so busy? The obvious answer would be to get less sleep and I’ve tried to do that as well. I usually get only six hours or so of sleep on week nights but I feel like that’s not enough, I tend to get sleepy during the latter hours of the work day. I find it a bit surprising that blogging involves so much time because I never had to seriously think about it before, it came more naturally to me back home probably because I was so used to everything else. Blogging’s not just about organizing your thoughts to write a review, it’s also about formatting everything into a cohesive manner and it’s also about responding to comments. I’ve always replied to the comments people leave on my blog because I feel like that encourages everyone to come back to continue the discussion. I’m also a serial commenter when it comes to the blogs I follow and that’s something that I haven’t been able to do much lately because I’ve been focusing on putting up posts. I’m positive that it will get easier in time but for now, I want to hear your thoughts. When do you usually blog – when you wake up in the mornings before heading off to work or right before you sleep at night? Are you a pro at multi-tasking, writing blog posts while doing something else?
