Discussion Series: How I Balance Books, Blogging and Life (Part 2): Dealing With Time

Screen Shot 2017-01-04 at 5.43.21 PMIt is time for another instalment of my balancing books, blogging and life series.

Last week, I posted a typical daily routine (if you missed that one, you can check it out here!).   This week, I figured I would get more in depth and start answering some of the questions I have received surrounding making time and staying focused!

To start, I would like to be clear. People keep asking me to write this post and to share my secrets.   Truly, there really is no secret.   I do what works for me, so, that being said, some of the things I do will not work for everyone! So my top piece of advice, before I start my ramble, is to play around with your routine and adjust it to how it will benefit you the best!

I decided to take direct questions and answer them Q&A style for this portion of the series, so without further ado, let’s get into it!

Discussion Series: How I Balance Books, Blogging and Life (Part 1)- My Book Blogger Routine

Screen Shot 2017-01-04 at 5.43.21 PM

Last week, I put a call out for any burning questions about how I balance my blog, the amount of books I read and general life (you can check that post out here). I got so many questions!  Thank you!  I will be putting together several posts discussing the answers, but, to start, I figured I would talk about My Book Blogger Routine.  Annie at The Misstery asked this question (and decided to start her own post related- you can check that out here!).

Like Annie,  I decided to split this into two different routines: one for weekdays and another for weekends.  And, to simplify, I do not have any children.   I do work full time.   I am a teacher, so basically, at this point in the year, I am struggling hard.  One more week until summer…one more week until summer; I teach at an alternative school so technically I work throughout the summer too, but it is a lot lighter.  So I am looking forward to the break!

Without further ado, keep reading to check out my blogger routine and to get a glimpse into my blogging balance!

Discussion Series: How I Balance Books, Blogging and Life

screen-shot-2017-01-04-at-5-43-21-pm

Out of all the questions, I am asked on a regular basis, there is always one that is reoccurring.

I am constantly asked how I am able to get through so many books each week and each month.  I decided, maybe the best way to go about answering these questions will be to start a Discussion Series surrounding how I balance books, blogging and life!

So, I figured maybe the best way to start off would be to ask anyone if they have any questions for me to answer specifically regarding how I balance my reading schedule, blog and life.  Otherwise, I will just ramble on, and trust me, I can totally do that!

So, please, comment your questions and I will be sure to work them into several posts for the end of this week and the upcoming Fridays!
