Is Blogging Stressful or Fun

Blogging stressful
it makes me lose sleep

Yet I find without it
I just want to weep

It can be creative
It can be so fun

Making little projects
till the day is done

Now I’m back at blogging
Blogging act take II

Ready for Adventure?
I am are you?

I jumped headfirst into blogging while on maternity leave… it was great. It gave me a sense of purpose as I burned the midnight oil every single night!! But somewhere along the way a problem arose… yes my little guy still wakes up all night. But he goes to bed at around 8:30 so instead of catching some sleep while he is resting, I’ve been on the work till midnight on the blog kick.

Plus being back at work took away all my midday nap opportunities. I continued to struggle though… but when some medical things came crashing my way that did it. The blog died!!! I simply couldn’t do it all.

So I’m back… We’ll see how things go. I’ve got some fun ideas for reviving the blog. Maybe less link parties, more planning in advance.

I missed the community, seeing nice comments at the bottom of my posts. Getting to meet other great bloggers.

How do you find time to do the things you love... While still getting sleep and raising a little one?


  1. Blogging is definitely stressful... and fun. I have enough trouble keeping up with my blog while working, I definitely wouldn't be able to do it if my daughter was still a toddler. Kudos to you for taking it on.

  2. I'm still struggling to keep my blog from taking over and my children are grown. Have fun as you find your best balance.

    1. Thank you so much Lydia! Did you start your blog after your children were older?

  3. Thanks Suzanne... it is a tough balance :) When do you fit your blogging in? Early morning, late nights?

  4. Welcome back.....and congratulations on that beautiful little one. Blogging certainly needs to be kept in its place....and we need to determine our priorities to set its place where it should be. :)

    1. I agree :) How do you find time to balance two blogs?


I would love to hear from you!
