Finding Time for a Travel Blog
I’m often asked how I juggle a full-time job, a travel blog, time to workout and time to see my family, boyfriend and friends. And honestly, I’m exhausted by reading that sentence! Ask me what shows do I watch or how many book I’ve read this year? The answer is not many. There is unfortunately not enough time to do everything. That’s why it all comes down to prioritizing. Figuring out what YOU want to do with your time, who YOU want to see or where YOU want to go. It’s not always easy, that’s for sure. But after a day at the office, do I always feel like writing a post? The answer for most of us would most probably not! It’s sometimes easier for me to drive myself to my cross-fit training class (which requires so much more work!) than to sit in front of my computer to write a post. And so, I plan ahead. I try to write my posts on weekends when I have more free time. This way, I don’t see it as a chore but something I want to do. In the winter, I make it an enjoyable routine. On Sunday’s, I like to wake up, prepare myself a latte and then spend a few hours writing. It’s soothing and relaxing. The routine is a little different in summer because I rather be enjoying the nice weather. But some other times, I’ll maximize my time by writing a post in the subway. Believe it or not, I get inspired a lot there. Let me be through an article I just read in the newspaper or by simply watching people. In need of inspiration, I know that there is free content for websites from resources like article writing services. But I prefer to get my
writings from a life experience degree.
But all in all, it comes down to two things:
1. Passion! I enjoy writing about travel. When I’m going to work every day, having a travel blog allows me to disconnect from my work/training routine. It allows me to travel through the blog.
2. Fun! A travel blog is not a chore: As soon as writing for the blog is considered a chore, it’s the beginning of the end. The quality of the posts decline and the topics aren’t as interesting. Need to find creative ways of writing even when time is not on your side.
