Let’s Talk is a fun new meme to discuss an little bit of this & a little bit of that (not always bookish) hosted by Smash Attack Reads and A Book Obsession.
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!
When I first started blogging, I spent several hours a day reading and commenting on blogs. These days I would say an hour a day. I was starting to burn out so I take a few days off from the computer now and it helps keep this whole blogging thing fresh.
Now Twitter is a whole different story! I‘m on Twitter the entire day, checking as often as possible. I just love the immediacy of it and how you can end up discussing all kinds of topics all at once. (As I’m writing this post – I’m in the middle of convo’s about sex & violence in YA, music, naming my favorite heroines, playdates for my dogs lol)
I have a Facebook page but I rarely if ever go there. Looking at my wall gives me a headache lol
I have zero time management skills. I’m a fly by the seat of my pants kind of girl so I just blog when I have the time and I don’t worry about it anymore. Some days it could be 4-5 hours writing posts, commenting etc – other days 1/2 hour.
My phone is my “system” I guess. It allows me to keep up on email/post links/Twitter all day so I’m not swamped when I get home. I hate commenting on blogs using my phone though so it’s mostly just visiting.
