A lot of times I get asked if I do blogging full time. I’m always SO flattered that someone would think I do blogging full-time because I put so much hard work to keep this up and honestly, looking like it’s all I do. But the truth is, yes – I DO have another job that I spend the majority of my week at.
However, don’t be fooled – that just because I do have a full-time job, doesn’t mean that I don’t spend a TON of time/energy on this. So what does that exactly look like? It means waking up a lot earlier (~5:30AM/6:00AM) in order to push out a blog post before work. Shooting content in the early light before heading to work. Answering emails and taking calls in between my workload. Running (and sometimes changing) immediately after work to get to an important event. Staying up late to answer more emails, edit photos and create invoices. Oh yeah, and ALWAYS ON INSTAGRAM.
It’s honestly a lot of work. For a while I dedicated a lot more time to it, being consistent with pushing out 2 blog posts a week. Now it’s been a lot more stressful. There has been more pressure at my job; which takes up not just my time, but also my energy. It’s hard to do all this when your physically and emotionally drained.
I talk to other bloggers who are doing the same struggle; full-time job and full-time blog. I hear how they manage the stresses and I am always impressed! Where at times it makes me feel like I am still not doing enough. It took me a while to determine, should I even keep doing this? I decided I did want to continue, but I didn’t want to put as much pressure on myself. I love writing and I love putting together outfits- and sharing all of this! So continue to stay tuned!
