Friend Friday Questions

This week's questions are about time spent blogging, burnout and pressure to do more.


1. How many hours a week do you spend blogging? 
probably an average of around 10-14 hours per week.  Some days I am on more than others.  My work lends itself to being able to surf around to other blogs quite a bit.

Has that number changed since you started blogging?
Yes, I spend more time now that I have my own blog.  Have to add the time spent working on my own blog now.
 
2. There is always more you can do, write, read, comment on... how do you limit your time spent on these tasks?
I give myself a specific amount of time to spend on blogging and try not to go over that.  I try not to click on every link to everything that is posted.  You can get lost in another world very quickly and sometimes it is hard to find your way back to the real world. :)
 

3. Have you experienced Blogger burnout yet?
I am still pretty new, so not really blogger burnout.  Sometimes frustration because there is so much more that I think I can take in or do.

How have you dealt with that? 
I just step away and remind myself it is only a hobby.
 

4. This time of the year is always a lot busier than any other time.  Will your blogging change as a result?
I don't know since this is the first time I will be blogging during the holidays.  I can see where it will get harder to find the time between now and the new year though.
 

5. Could you foresee a moment in which you are not blogging anymore?
No, not right now.  I am loving every minute of it
How would you you identify that it's time to walk away?

When I am more frustrated than not, more cranky than happy or just plain hate to try and post or read anything anyone else has written.

Nice blog for a new blogger :-) Love it.

I spend a lot of time blogging because I have 2 blogs but for me its more than a hobby. It's a vital part of my business.

I started with a hobby like blog and now there's no time for it!

So true that you can easily get lost in another world with a couple click-throughs. All of a sudden you are worlds away from where you began and have no idea how you landed there in the first place. Gotta watch that almost daily. - Katy
