I guess every parent blogger goes through this phase of managing kids and blogging. Be it any working parent or stay-at-home mom for that matter. Struggling to manage time yet coming out with flying colors.
In a series of Blog Posts in an attempt to introduce myself to my readers. Series of 10 posts this would be the 3rd one.
Well, as a blogger writing comes naturally to me with a decent word flow. But at the same time, I would like to have some time out from the kids, my husband, and house chores. This just makes me more concentrated on writing and it gives me peace.
Writing for me is like therapy. I am sure it is the same with most of my fellow bloggers and writers. As writing is my happy time or rather a me-time, I sit for writing only after kids sleep. And well, writing daily after kids go to bed is sometimes not possible.
I don’t write daily. Come on, we all have those days where you don’t want to do anything but just relax. Yet most of the time I feel the same too. having two extremely energetic girls and the online classes makes it a little difficult for me.
Mostly I try to write while kids are up for an afternoon nap or after they go to bed at night. And yes, I would like to say the mutual support I get from my family over this profession is just amazing. Sometimes they look after kids while I am running short of a deadline.
As I said in my earlier posts, writing is something that I choose to express myself and convey my thoughts. Happy that this passion is truing into a profession.
This Blog Post is a part of BlogChatter HalfMarathon. Look out to this space for more posts. In the next blog post, I would like to talk about what I covered in Momlifeandlifestyle in detail.

On every line, I was nodding my head. Writing gives me immense satisfactiona and it rejuvenate me even after a tiring half day (My writing window is also during kid’s nap time). With time, I have realized that having a specific or limited time has increased my efficiency.

I agree being consistent sometime becomes very challenging being a mother. But I have maintained a routine and a dedicated place had made a huge difference. I can relate with your post completely.

I do much agree with you that it’s a mutual support from the family for us bloggers to continue writing. I also prefer writing when kids are sleeping and yes time management is really important.

The responsibility of a mother never ends and being a blogger I can understand this. It is challenging for me too, because I need peace to write. And writing brings happiness. So when the child is sleeping or busy playing, then my pen is raised.

While reading definitely I can relate this as it’s so difficult at times to handle both and as a single mom it’s like a every day challenge.

After reading why you chose the domain name for your blog, I now got to know how you manage kids while pursuing blogging as a professional option. It is not at all easy and your husband’s support is the key here. Kudos to both of you to help each other. This is what great marriages are about!

As moms our time is divided between kids and home. Finding a gap and making it productive is the way out for us. My writing time depends on kids’ online classes nowadays.

managing kids and blogging is super tough but at the end of the day it makes us happy for sure. Nowawadays my writing time depends on kiddo’s classes and nap time

When my daughter was going to school, it was much easier. But with online classes, now, I hardly get any time in the day to dedicate to my blog. Night is the time I take out for my work. As moms, we have to adjust so much, but a round of applause for moms like you and us that still we manage to follow our passion of blogging.

I must say you are participating in so many blogging events for regularly posting on blog so you are doing a fabulous job. Managing and kids can puzzle one sometimes but you are doing just perfectly.

At times keeping the fine balance between blogging and kids gets difficult but I guess the determination to have this space of mine is important and I manage it. Basically I try to be regular and maintain a discpline to be able to do this.

Moms are all master multitaskers. I myself dont know how i am managing, being a mom, blogging, creating content, making videos and designing!!! We do so much, right! Kudos to all moms.
Hansa KajariaAugust 9, 2021 at 3:21 am
I could resonate so much with your blog as even I have two very energetic kids and squeezing time to write at times becomes tough for me. But as all know, we are moms, we can wear multiple hats at home time and make it look like a cake walk.
CarolynAugust 17, 2021 at 8:26 am
The challenge is real but just like exercising, you need to decide that you gotta do it at the moment you thought of, well that works for me. Time management is important but a mom’s life is unpredictable so commitment to write no matter what, is very important!
