When Life Gets too Busy for Blogging

Apparently I don’t write about anything for 3 weeks!

OK, that was the longest streak I’ve gone without blogging. So sorry friends, life (and work in particular, but we’re not blaming anyone), is quite a lot these days.

Plus grad school on top of it all, you’ve heard all about that.

So in order to make this an informative post for you, I’m here to show you what I do when life gets too busy for blogging:

1. Realize the blog will there there when things slow down

I’ve felt a ton of guilt over this but I have to let it go. I love blogging, but my career comes first. I’m a working girl, and am in three graduate classes right now. Swamped? Pretty much.

2. Reward myself with Pinterest.

Every day when things calm down, even for 5 minutes, I’d do a little scrolling and dream of having those beautiful rooms I see on there and wishing I had time to do all the crafts I pin. It’s a total escape for a few moments, and a nice switch up of all the serious topics I usually have to deal with. Find me on Pinterest here.

3. Don’t stress myself out, that I’m missing out.

I haven’t even been reading any blogs, nor been doing any projects. But I’m OK with that because I’ve know I have a lot of great things to share with you and I’m sure tons of fun reading to do as evidence by my Google Reader.

Only six more weeks of classes. Can I get a yahoo!?

4. Let you know what kind of things are coming up on here.

A new backyard hardscape, a Halloween mantel (I’m late to the show, I know), my feature in the local home magazine!! and lots of holiday crafts.

Excited? I am! Missed you friends 🙂


  1. I just checked your blog the other day wondering if for some reason I wasn’t getting your posts! I so get what you’re saying – good for you for prioritizing, in my opinion, the right order. I’m in the middle of studying for an exam myself, and it’s nothing compared to what you have going on, yet there are not enough hours in the day! Oh, and guess what? I never did get my fall decorating done! Just our pumpkins. That’s it!

  2. I feel ya! My semester (3 classes) ends December 1st. Counting down the days, I tell ya. And contemplating Vegas to celebrate!

  3. Woo Hoo!! I know this is a post about being busy, but I’m stuck on the magazine feature. You go girl!! And I HEAR you! I am feeling the ‘busy’ ness as well and I am not a working girl going to school!

  4. I know whatcha mean! Sometimes blogging just has to take the backseat to life! I hope you get some rest and recovery soon. We’ll be here when you’re ready! 🙂

  5. Well, if people do like your posts (and your blog in general) then they will come back even if you stay away for a whole semester! 🙂

    P.S.: Yahoo!
