I'm Still Here

I have not been blogging lately. Nope, not one bit. But it's not because I've lost my passion for blogging.
In fact, I miss it on a daily basis. I have a running list of potential blog topics on my desk at work, and I still read all my favorite blogs on the daily (but I rarely comment because my iPhone hates blog commenting).

What I've found out, though, is that real life can really get in the way of blogging. I used to spend hours on my little blog baby. Writing, posting, replying to comments, interacting with other bloggers... it's a lot more work than you'd think! And it turns out that a 9-5 can really get in the way.

Let me walk you through my day. My alarm goes off at 6:30, and I press snooze until 7... 15. Then when I finally manage to drag myself out of bed I get ready, go downstairs and pop a bagel in the toaster, run out to turn on the car and brush off the snow (is it summer yet?), come in, eat, and run out the door because 9 times out of 10 I'm running 5 minutes late by this point. I then spend the next 8 hours saving lives & changing the world. After work I head to the gym- literally the worst one on the planet and the only one in this godforsaken town. Around 6 pm I finally head home, have dinner, and take a quick shower. At this point it's 7 pm at the absolute earliest, which gives me two short hours of free time before crawling into bed, calling my incredibly handsome boyfriend, and drifting off into dreamland before I wake up and do it all over.

And that's only if I don't work late (spoiler alert: I usually do) So, you see, there's not a lot of time in there for blogging. Or reading, watching my shows, talking to anyone I don't work with, playing obsessive amounts of Candy Crush, etc. I guess I just haven't figured out how to balance my current life with blog world (But don't worry about the Candy Crush thing, I've got that down).

Do any other bloggers out there have a full time job where you can't work on your blog posts? What have you done to manage your time? Any other tips? You should know that I am the worst at scheduling posts ahead of time.
