I love to blog. And I admitted spend a fair amount of time each week either working on my own blog or reading other people's. I totally choose to do it, and I don’t think people who do not blog realize how much time it takes to maintain one. I like to think of it as a hobby for myself, but sometimes it does feel like an unpaid part-time job!
I’m almost afraid to try to add up how much time it takes me to put together a typical post. I usually spend 10-15 minutes taking pictures each morning not counting the seemingly endless minutes I spend staring at my clothes waiting for inspiration to strike, then another 15 or so minutes trying to weed out the plain old ridiculous pics from the half-decent ones. Throw in probably another 10 minutes to color-correct and load the images, then another 10-15 to enter in my outfit deets with links. And most important of all – the X amount of time not only trying to think up a topic, but then trying to make it sound coherent. This part could take anything from 20 minutes to over an hour to sometimes having to leave a post alone overnight to let it “settle.”
So … carry the 4, add the 2 aaaand then we end up with almost two hours spent putting together one post for myself. I obviously don’t do this all at once during the day, but this doesn’t even count time spent making my blog rounds!
Admittedly, I am not a fast blogger. I am not one of those gals who can effortlessly pound out a fantastic pictorial and post in 15 minutes flat (major props to you, if you're one of those gals). So posts like this may contain outfits from yesterday. And I don't blog daily so that I may have some time for that "life thing" and, oh yeah, the corporate machine who likes to deposit money into my bank account and thus keeps me in Anthro and Crew.
How much time do you spend each day/week blogging? How do you balance regular life with your blog time?
