One Year and Beyond Toddler Link Up

Thursday, June 19, 2014

I am linking up with other moms again today for the One Year and Beyond Toddler Link up!

This weeks topic is:
How to make time to blog in the busyness of motherhood

I didn't begin blogging until Nicklas was about 8 months old.  At the time the blogging thing was very new to me and I only used it to keep up with our lives.  I didn't follow many blogs or do any link ups.  As I became to understand the blogging world a little more blogging starting to take up a lot of time.  There were link ups I did, I did some of the 'what are my favorite' blogs, there were blogs I started following (most being other moms I got advice from), etc.

I then had to start setting rules for myself. 

Here are some of my rules:

1.  Only blog when Nicklas is napping or sleeping.

Yep that is my only rule.

I do not want to see Nicklas to see me setting around on the computer or my cell phone all the time.

You must remember... I am also a working, blogging mom so my time with Nicklas is very limited and special.

This blog is a hobby.  Being a mommy is not!

I do not judge how anyone else does their blogging, this is just how I choose too!

That is also the reason that my blogs are sometimes random or why I don't blog for 2 weeks at a time!

Well that is all.  If you other blogging mommy's have any advice please share!!

Happy blogging everyone!




  1. That's the best blogging boundary! :) I admire your heart in keeping your baby first :)

  2. I am right there with you! I blog when my kids are sleeping. When they are up there is no way I could take my eyes off of them or my house would probably catch on fire. haha! Thanks for linking up :)

  3. Such an excellent rule! I agree and don't want Mac thinking that I'd rather talk about him online than actually spend time with him right in front of me. I try to only blog when he's asleep or out with his dad.

  4. Same here! I wait till mine are asleep too. I understand even more so since you're a working mommy!

  5. Good for you for setting those limits for yourself so you can focus on your main calling!


Thanks for visiting. Please leave comments and let me know what you think! :)
