@pete_mcpherson - great stuff! I agree, my family is totally on board, its just its also an internal pressure on myself. I am a go getter and when things do not move at the speed I want, I feel overwhelmed. I honestly I feel I am getting too distracted by a) What I am supposed to be doing b) what I need to be doing c) what I intend to do
If I could work 4 hours a week - I would like to spend 2 hours with great kick ass content and then 2 hours marketing the beejesus out of it. Yeah, and a podcast on this would be uber helpful!
@MamaFishSaves Chelsea, congratulations on your second baby! I am a mother of two boys too - oh they are just sooo much work but so worth it!! I like the idea of editorial calendar, and infact I created a project and task list at Asana too. So, it sends me reminders when I am getting close to the due date. Social media is where I am stuck. I don't feel the need to be on every platform - right now on Twitter and Google Profile and perhaps use Instagram for marketing. And, my, you are so right about tech maintenance. This forum is proof, I spend a whole day just fixing the entire look of the blog, etc. Ah, thank you soooo much for your insight, I truly appreciate. Much love and hugs!
@Dads_Dollars_Debts I want to enjoy the experience too and so I am trying to find my own path...my own speed. I thought that as a new blogger you are supposed to publish every couple of days, and that's where the pressure mounted. I have thoughts and ideas and I want them in front of people as soon as possible - so you see the dilemma. But, as I work through I am confident I'll be ok. Thank you for sharing your insights. Hugs!
@budgetOnaStick Yup, need to remember to breathe, I guess! I have a 1.5 hour commute each way to work, so my day only gets started when I am back from work. hehehhe. My weekends are now being dedicated to the blog (morning and evenings), so I think I am heading somewhere that feels good. Thank you so much for your thoughts!
