Let's Talk! 11/30/12

Welcome to the Let’s Talk weekly discussion meme!

today’s question:

How much time do you think you spend on blogging each week, including commenting on other blogs, participating in events, Twitter/Facebook blog talk, etc? Do you have a time management system that works well for you? We’d love to know!
Time management?! Bwahahahaha!



How much time do I spend on blogging and other social media? Oh mama. I don't know. I don't think I want to know. A lot ok?? 

I'm coming up on my 6 month blogoversary. Perhaps because I'm still in the honeymoon phase I'm all Blog/Comment/Twitter/Facebook crazy? Maybe? Sounds good to me!

  1. Ahhh the Honeymoon phase! Enjoy it!!!

    It's been three years for me so I went through the separation phase but I'm coming back around and enjoying myself again.

    1. I keep looking behind me, just waiting for the dreaded burn-out to be sneaking up on me ;) So far so good!

  2. I console myself that commenting, twittering, etc is at least more productive than Angry Birds.

  3. I have to say I love blogging too, and while I don't have tons of time to spend on it - I actually think about it - how to improve my blog etc. - when I'm not blogging too. I'm not even going to count that time, or it wouldbe hours a day!

  4. When I first started blogging, I worked 2nd shift, so I actually had a lot more time to work on blogging than I do now that I work 1st! I still love it though and wish for more time to spend on it. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Ah, if only there was more time in the day. And if only real life and all of its messes didn't get in the way of internet time! ;)

  5. I SHOULD blog a lot more, but the past month has been crazy and I have been slacking. I'm still in the less-than-six-months-phase, so I haven't quite established a routine.

    1. November and December are CRAZY busy, don't fret :) I don't have a routine really either...or maybe I do and I just don't know it. I'm very much a seat of my pants kind of blogger.

  7. It is still fun after 2 years. What I want to get out of it has changed, but has created more enjoyment.

  9. I need an organization outline please! :) I feel like I have been flying by the seat of my pants since I started blogging. Wait. I think I do that with almost everything. Hmmm....I see a New Year's Resolution coming out of this...

    I've bought a calendar so I'm going to start:
    1. Keeping up with my running-check it off when I've blogged about it
    2. Keep up with books read-check it off when I've blogged about it
    3. Not sure about the teaching stuff yet

    This is what I'm wondering. I want to join some reading challenges for 2013-how in the heck do I keep up with THAT?????

    Any suggestions?

    1. I keep up with challenges by making a page on my wordpress menu bar called Challenges, then put a page underneath it for each challenge that I'm working on. I update them as I do my reviews. That helps me, but sometimes I have to get all pen and paper and write down what I'm missing and my plan to finish the challenge!

      I'm www.loveatfirstbook.com if you want to check my strategy out!

  10. I can't seem to come up with a plan..being organized would be nice but I haven't been successful at it yet, lol! If you find something that works let me know!

    As far as challenges go I'm going to try very hard to stay away from them in 2013. *TRY* ;) I'll be doing Dewey's Readathon when that comes up again because it is FANTASTIC. But the pressure of ALL THE OTHER THINGS you can join made me about lose my mind in the last 6 months, lol.
