Since I started blogging in 2008, you would only see two posts per month (at best) from me. Therefore much thought and consideration went into my decision to post daily from the beginning of this year.
Leading up to the new year, I was reevaluating my work and business commitments. Long story short – by being focused on what my priorities are and what makes me happy, changes were made. Changes that allowed me time to post daily.
However strict boundaries needed to be put in place to ensure balance was kept – that blogging didn’t interrupt my work commitments and more importantly my family life.
Even blogging about sustainability needs to be sustainable.
* My mobile phone is used to capture images and write posts. This means I can blog at anytime I have a spare moment (not needing to be at my computer). Saved posts can then be scheduled.
* One hour only in the morning is dedicated to blogging. After this time I resist the urge to check comments, likes and stats (an important boundary that I usually stick to).
* If after our Little One is asleep and any work completed, I can either do a little blogging or crash into bed (I am asleep within 2 minutes of my head hitting the pillow).
These boundaries are not limiting me. On the contrary they enable me the time to do what I enjoy.
This post arose from a conversation with Australia’s prominate sustainability blogger, Gavin Webber (Greening of Gavin). I have permission from Gavin to share our conversation with you. To be continued…..
