I’m actually typing this post as I run up the stairs to my room, dropping my laptop off before dashing to work. I didn’t get time today to respond to everyone’s comments on my recent posts, but I will later.
The problem with hobbies and passions are they are hostage to time. Often our working lives are seperate from our hobbies (as much as I would like my job to be travelling and blogging) and we have to work it around a full time schedule.
This full time schedule for me is shift work, meaning my work day varies. If I am working 7-3, I will respond to comments and publish a post after this. If I am on a 3-11, I will blog on a morning. Recently I have been doing a few 1-9pm shifts, leaving me little time before or after work. I still blog on a morning before work and try to start building a post on the evening in time for the morning. I love blogging everyday as it keeps me focused and builds my momentum. It frustrates me if I miss a day.
Because I am not in a stable 9-5, my routine changes slightly daily but it’s always comments first, blog post second. That’s worked for me over the past few years.
What routine works for you?
