I can't believe that the end of August is just about here. I really don't know where the time goes. Summer is almost over, and the kids have already started the new school year.
As many of you might know, I took the summer months off (for the most part) for all things online, only doing the bare minimum necessities. It was a refreshing break, but I really did miss the blogger life. I tried to stay up to date with most of you through Instagram and Twitter. But I still missed everything else online.
I've been slowly easing my way back into it (or at least trying), but starting this week, I have a whole new schedule to answer to...I got a day job. I just received the official news last week, and the deal was sealed on Friday when I went to sign all the new hire paperwork for the HR department.
After many months of job searching (since December/January), which is a job in and of itself, I finally got that job offer I had been waiting not-so-patiently for. And let me tell you...It's tough trying to get back in the workplace-game after being a stay-at-home/work-at-home mom for nearly 10 years! Really tough. I was seriously starting to give up hope completely. So this job offer came at just the perfect time.
I'll be working downtown, so that means I'll be sharing more street art and box art on Instagram! I'm pretty excited about that part. I don't really venture our around the downtown area, so it will be new territory for me. It also means I'll be dealing with traffic and parking (definitely not looking forward to that every day).
It's already a BIG change for both me and my kids. It's going to take us all some time to adjust and get used to a new schedule, a new way of doing things. But this is a change for the better, and it's what has been needed for us. I'm really thankful for the opportunity to work again.
With a new day job, though, I'm wondering how I'm going to juggle the blogger life and the working life. I get no cell service where I'm working, so that's going to make it difficult to check social media and everything else online. I'm thinking I might need to switch my service provider...
But beyond that, I'm brainstorming how I'm going to balance this new work life of mine. I'll definitely need to get on some kind of schedule for posting. I know that I'm not giving up blogging, especially not when I just started getting it back! Soooo...
Does anyone have a tip they'd like to share for working a day job, blogging, and balancing the two? Would anyone like to guest post for me on the topic?
