HELP!

Hi :)
Unfortunately it's been way to long. I'm having a major dilemma and I need suggestions. How do you fellow bloggers out there balance blogging with school and work? AP classes and tons of homework takes up most of my day. Thankfully I've blocked up just a little bit of time to read some good books, but I have found it hard to squeeze in blogging as well. I'm hoping some trick will fix this hehe ;D Any comments or opinions would be VERY appreciated. Thank you! I hope to post soon :))

I think that you just do what you can when you can. Your schooling is going to take priority over blogging now and again, but we'll all be here when you have something to say about a book you've read. Maybe you could blog about some of the books you're reading for those AP courses? Any good titles? Classics?

I had the same problem when school first started. I don't have any Ap classes yet (I'm not looking foward to them next year) but I'm in the marching band. We have so many practices and then a footballgame and competition, or two every weekend. My problem was trying to find time to read and write reviews. So one day while at the store I bought a little planner and started planning my days out, reading and blogging included. It help so much.

I can totally relate, but from the other side of the fence- I'm a special ed teacher so I do a ton of lesson planning, materials prep, paperwork and other stuff during the week after teaching during the day is finished. What I've found to be helpful is scheduling my reviews and posts in advance. When I finish a book, I set up a post with the title in the subject so I don't forget about it, and when time presents itself, I write as many reviews as I can (I'm taking a break from doing that now actually.) Then, I schedule them, and repeat the process the next time I have time. Ultimately blogging for me is about having fun and connecting with people; sometimes other things have to take priority but once I stopped beating myself up about it, I was able to fit in more time and still meet my obligations.

Hope this helps! :D

Google Reader.

Prioritize the blogs you follow so you're not overwhelmed.

Good luck darling!

I never have time to write during the week, so I usually wake up before my hubs on Saturday and Sunday morning and write the posts that I'm going to post throughout the week. Mostly... Don't Stress. This is supposed to be all about FUN! And you have many loyal readers (like me :) who will still be here whenever you find more time!

I think you could read whenever you want then write your reviews and schedule them so they're published automatically throughout the week.

Also, you could schedule memes like WoW's weeks ahead whenever you have some free time.

Hope I helped :)
