  1. I’m often to running a blog and i really admire your content.
    The article has really peaks my interest. I’m going to bookmark
    your website and keep checking for brand new information.

    Here is my web-site – Kristen Myers

  2. I am very bad at social media. I try, then forget, and it is a big circle of not getting much done. I couldn’t begin to try to keep up with you on any level. My takeaway here is to quit thinking of what I do as overwhelming get back to work!

  3. It can be difficult, and there are times when you simply have to take a break for a bit. Our human’s career causes her to have to travel – sometimes a lot. And last year, she worked 13 out of 12 months! (EEK)

    We’ve found that keeping a calendar helps a LOT. Pre-scheduling simple posts in advance takes a lot of stress off the ones that take more time & energy to create.

    And – unless they’re sponsored posts – the ones that take more time can then be pushed to later if Real Life beings to demand more of us. Not sure this helped….

      Thanks for posting because I really like your blog. I am trying to pre-schedule, and find some lighter, easier posts to use in-between. Also trying to say, ok, today, we write a lot of blog posts. What I’m really struggling with is the whole social media piece, and I know I gotta do it, cause I need to be more social and more engaging. And I’m not sure how to fit that whole piece into the picture. Suggestions would be welcome.

  4. I totally agree with you. When I get home from a long day of working, the last thing I really feel like doing is other “work” – keeping up with social media, reading blogs and news sites, updating my own blog, etc. But once it’s done, it feels great…and I usually reward myself with some sort of chocolate 🙂 As Sharon said, it’s all about your passion for writing and your passion for animals – makes it all worth it in the end.

    Wow, you sure have a busy life. It’s in our nature to succeed, to accomplish what needs to be done. Most everyone has said “I can’t do this” or “this is too much” and in the end it all works out and the job gets done. Then you can sit back and congratulate yourself for doing the impossible for a minute and then start on the next task. We’re only human after all.

    Your life sounds just like mine and probably most other bloggers. I feel like the gun shot for a race goes off every morning and I run and run until the race is over late at night. Working smarter is a great tip, but no matter what life throws at us, the passion behind our words is what keeps me hitting the computer every day.

      Sharon: Great comments. Particularly like the part about the passion behind our words, which is so true. Sometimes, we just get so caught up in running to get things done, we need to stop for a few moments, and think about why we do this.
