Blog Hop: A Juggling Act

book-blogger-hop-finalToday’s Book Blogger Hop question is: For all of you worker bees out there! How do you balance having a day job/career and managing your blog at night? Is it hard or easy to do, and what do people in your work life think of your blogs?

Well, I suppose it’s appropriate that a post about balancing my life is going up late…because things aren’t very balanced just now!!  Although it’s more because I moved into a new house a week ago, and we don’t have working internet at home yet.

I generally fit blogging in on evenings and weekends–a book review some time on the weekend to go up Monday, and the Friday post some evening during the week.  I do a lot of my fiction writing on my lunch break, a pause in the middle of my work day.  I’m happy to report on that front that revisions are still moving along at a pretty good pace, by the way, despite the craziness of moving.

Would this all be easier without a 40-hour a week job?  Yeah, I think so!!  (Ask me if I’m impressed that Stephen King writes every day.  Spoiler: No.)  But it’s kind of what I’m used to by this point.

My coworkers know about my fiction-writing, which they mostly think is pretty cool.  I’m not sure if any have read my blog.  In some ways I prefer to keep my life more compartmentalized than that.

Fellow bloggers, do you have full-time jobs?  How is balance working out for you?

Okay, back to revising–I have nine minutes left on my lunch break!
