A Change in Schedule

You may or may not have noticed that my posting has been a bit more sporadic over the last couple of weeks. Or maybe I’m just getting ahead of myself when I think people read my blog every day. Either way, things have been a bit crazy in the world of Sarah lately.

It’s been filled with a whole lot of this:




and that ain’t blogging…

My 9-5 job has sort of crossed over into the 9-? territory lately. We’re in the midst of developing a new product and all of us are working hard on a short timeline. This means that all that free time I had after work to blog (which, in all honesty, was a couple hours each night) is now very, very limited. Instead of logging onto my computer at 8pm every night to bump out a great blog post for you all, I am starting up my computer every night to re-open work email and continue working on drafts. Blogging has to take a back seat.

As much as I’m an advocate for keeping a regular blogging schedule – consistency is key – real life sometime gets in the way. I write this blog in my free time. I make little to no money from it, and I continue to do it because I truly love writing and connecting with my readers. Blogging has opened the door for some really awesome opportunities and I can’t wait to see what else it has in store for me.

But for now, I need to be honest with myself and my readers. I need to change my blogging schedule. My full time job pays the bills, and right now, is the priority. I have been keeping a pretty consistent blogging schedule of 1 post per day every Monday – Friday. For now, my schedule is going to be a bit fluid. There may be some weeks where I can easily write a post per day, but there may be other weeks where only one or two posts are my limit. I don’t really know yet. But I promise you, I won’t leave you hanging. I definitely plan to post at least 1 time per week when things get crazypants.

In the meantime, how was your weekend?! Bernie and I had date night Friday night, I got my ass kicked at the gym Saturday by my trainer, and then laid low the rest of the weekend. Much needed.
