Where is your priority? What comes first in your life?
My family and my home are my priorities.
I’ve been working really hard on making a successful blog. This is a positive and negative thing at the same time.
My page views and comments have gone up. I’ve been getting more followers by email and social media. I’m loving all the new growth.
I was writing five posts per week, but I was getting burned out. That’s why I took a week off from blogging in March. That break felt amazing. It was so nice to sit back and relax and I didn’t have to worry about writing.
I was putting so much pressure on myself to writing five posts and getting my posts on social media. That’s why I started writing only three posts per week. I couldn’t keep on having five days of posts. Writing only three posts per week definitely helped with my workload.
But the trouble was my blog was becoming a priority over my family and my home. I was periodically on my computer and phone throughout the day working on blog work.
Instead of working on my blog during certain parts of the day, I should have focused more of my time with my family and home. On the back of my mind were multiple things I wanted to do with my husband and girls and several things I wanted to do for myself.
My house was falling behind on cleaning, reorganizing, and clutter piling up. I had clothes to take care of for the new season, clothes that no longer fit, and donations to gather again.
I had so much to do and didn’t have as much time to do them as I wanted to. Something had to give.
That something has to be blogging.
I’ll be still around in the blogging world writing posts, but I’m going to focus more of my time on my family and home. My priority will be focused on them, which is where it should be.
