I’ve been working hard on a book. At the same time, I’ve also been trying to take care of my house, my kids, and homeschool my kids. We have field trips, park days, and other activities that take up more time beyond just the actual teaching and planning. And in the middle of all that, I’ve also been attempting to keep up with posting twice a week on the blog here, as well as twice a week on a homeschooling blog I keep, too. We’ve got birthdays, anniversaries, and more going on here, and the holidays are coming.
I’ve realized this weekend, as I was trying to find time in my schedule to do everything that needs to be done, that something’s got to give. I can’t keep up with everything. Well, I can, but the stress is going to get to me sooner rather than later. I need to let something go in order to make sure that the rest of what I do doesn’t suffer.
I’ve decided that, for the time being, I need to cut back on how often I post on my blogs. Twice a week doesn’t seem like much, but the time it takes to come up with something to write about, write it, edit it, prep photos, etc. is more than I realized.
I’m going to go with once a week posting for now. I’m hopeful that I can manage to post once a week without too much difficulty. I’m not sure what day of the week I’ll post on, but it will be either Monday or Wednesday, as usual. Maybe, once the holidays are over, I’ll find my life a bit less busy and be able to start posting more often again.
I appreciate the time you spend reading my blog, and I hope that by cutting back, not only will I reduce my own stress, but I’ll be able to provide you with better quality content that you’ll continue to enjoy.
