How Do People Blog Everyday???

Last week I had big blog plans. I had a kids post, a give-a-way, a tutorial, a recipe- you know- all the fun stuff.

As you can see...it did not happen. But it will. Very soon.

I have 3 boys- 5 and under and am about to have a 4th boy. I also teach preschool 3 mornings a week.

So between that, and laundry piles, a sink full of dishes, trying to make normal dinnertime meals, a ton of doctor appointments, and then finding time to blog everyday- as well as trying to take care of myself and my health--being 25 weeks pregnant.... it is just not happening.

But don't worry- it will.  Maybe not everyday- but those posts I am planning- I will get around to posting sometime soon.

I am working on a tute, a give-a-way (that I LOVE) and other things....so thanks for hanging in there with me while I take care of my real life!

And if you are a blogger who blogs everyday, I would really like to know your secret.......

Hi Sharla,

I am a new follower and I love your blog! I know how you feel, I don't know how people blog everyday! I am also a Mom of three boys and I feel like I never have enough time! We all have "real lives" and we understand that you do too! You take your time we will all be here when you do post! =)

P.S.~ Congrats on the new little one!

Love your blog! I think we'd all love to peek in on your world daily but we also know family is more important. Thanks for sharing part of your life with us when you can. You are an amazing woman!

Me too Sharla. I want to know the secret. I have been trying to blog Mon-Fri, but even then sometimes it is so hard. I love your blog...give yourself a little break. Even if you do not blog every day we will come and read it whenever you do! :) You make great things and are fun to read!

Oh I know! I tried for the month of January and made it about halfway. It's tiring. And I think posting every day is harder to jump into when you haven't been posting a lot before. It's also probably easier if you have set content that happens every week (such as recipe every monday and wordless wednesday etc) because then you don't have to think so hard to come up with a post. I've decided to just post when I feel like posting. Sometimes I schedule posts so that I don't have 3 in one day (that's a day the kids have good naps!) and then sometimes I'll go a week without a post. If you learn the secret, do tell. I have a feeling it requires giving up sleep and I'm not willing. :)

I don't know how you do it at all!! Just think of it this way - we are all busy mommies too and we can read every day so if you blog every day, we'll miss something awesome. Just keep blogging! That's what matters!

You amaze me at all you do do! I often think about it and wonder how I can do even half of what you accomplish! :) Do you sleep? ;) I don't think I'd get any sleep if I did half of what you do.

Hi! I'm new to your blog, came over on a link from your Memory game (which I love!!). I do blog every day on our dinner website, and weekly on our family website. With a 3 yr old and a 5 yr old it can be very challenging. What I can tell you is that there are days when it has to slip so I can deal with regular life, and thats ok! Any mom knows things come up. I use the time at night to catch up, and try to preplan as much as possible. Like if I'm posting a recipe, I can type the ingredient list in and save it as a draft, so its faster to type my thoughts about the dish after I actually cook it. Also, on our family blog, I keep a notebook with me all the time, and write down snippets as they happen or I think of them, so when I go back to the blog I have some ideas already written down. Hope that helps even a little! I've only started checking out your blog, but its very impressive!

I don't blog everyday either but when I have I usually blog all one day and set them to post for future dates!
