How can I go back to my blogging routine?
Blogging has been a part of my routine for more than a year now. I never thought of doing this but I still tried when I came to know about read.cash. Now, blogging has become a part of me.
I met new people. Being a stay-at-home mom and far away from my family made me feel more alone. People that I got to know here made me feel like they were with me.
I got to practice writing. Even if I don't like reading and writing, I can still get my mind going by blogging.
I love reading personal experiences of other people.
It became my journal or diary.
People are not toxic here unlike other social media platforms.
We can't deny the fact that earning is one of the best experiences here.
I know that lately, the @TheRandomRewarder was missing in action. I know most of us sad about it. I on the other hand was sad but I take myself to blame. I've been not consistent like I was before. I haven't posted articles every day, I haven't visited or read articles more than I did before. I haven't interacted with other users like I used to. This is one reason why I kind of accepted why my earnings are so low for this month. I used to earn at least a dollar per article. I used to read and comment on 20 articles per day too.
I lost track of what I am doing. I even drafted a few articles and topics that I have yet to post. Since we came back from Manila last month, I felt lighter. The urge to post one article per day was lessened too. Going back to Manila and visiting my sisters was a good thing for me, mentally. For my pocket or wallet, it wasn't.
Now I am battling if blogging helped me or not or maybe something in between. Perhaps I just have a developing toddler that made me want to focus on her first. I used to draft and post articles when Lil b is asleep but now she wakes up 2 to 5 mins before I got out of bed. I know that I can draft articles on my phone but I get the job done faster when I use a real keyboard.
This question has been running through my head for days, weeks now.
How can I go back to blogging...
Without sacrificing attention to Lil b?
Without falling asleep at the time I wanted to blog?
Manage my time without Lil b sticking with me 24/7?
I may not look like a very busy mom because I don't have a job or anything that would keep me busy or have many kids to take care of.
I am grateful that I can take care of and look after Lil B myself. That's what makes everything I do, worth it.
