That Awkward Thursday (9) When Blogging Takes Over



That Awkward Thursday is a feature hosted by Wholly Books where it's not only okay but encouraged to share your awkward moments!

That awkward moment you realize that blogging is taking over your life...


When I first started blogging I had no idea it would be this time consuming. Seriously, blogging is a full time job. Unfortunately, I already have two full time jobs. 1) My actual day job as a Case Manager and 2) My full time job as a mom. So yeah, between that and blogging I'm pretty busy.

Finally, I realized that blogging had in fact taken over my life. I was spending almost every second of my free time on blogging in some way. I was either reading, writing blog posts, reviews, contacting authors, emailing publishers, sending interview questions, scheduling guest posts, ect. See how that could take up a lot of time?

I let blogging consume me and it almost game me a panic attack on more than one occassion. It really is kind of sad that I let it get to me like that. I took on too many reviews and had too many commitments. I was in over my head and didn't know what to do.

It took some time but I finally decided to let others help me. I have a couple of part time reviewers that also help with memes every now then. At least now, I don't have to come up with content for every, single day. I have two other people to help me and it's awesome! They are awesome! (Note to self: Do an intro post for them!)

Still, blogging is taking up a lot of my time and I'm still trying to obtain a healthy balance. This past week I have been slacking but hopefully I'll be able to get things together soon!

What about you? Has blogging taken over your life? Let me know in the comments or feel free to post your own That Awkward Thursday post and link below!

Happy Thursday, Y'all!!

  1. It certainly takes up a big chunk of the day but it hasn't consumed my life, YET anyway. Least that's what I keep telling myself, lol. :)

  2. It's definitely consumed my life too! My grades are falling and I tend to read/blog/review books instead of studying or doing homework. I know it's terrible, but I can't help it :/ I think I'm going to need a blogging break pretty soon!
