So one thing that J and I knew we wanted to ramble about for some time now (while recording and sipping wine) is how to have a full time job and a successful blog at the same time. Guys and gals – let me be straight with you on this… I feel like this episode of the Celebrate Southern Podcast is kind of rambling and all over the place. Why?? Because it’s not something that I feel like I’ve mastered quite yet!
In this episode we talk about the tricks we use throughout our days, as well as how tough it can be to find balance. J and I talk about how important it is for us to strategize and schedule everything, in addition to making a trillion lists.
After editing this episode, I honestly think that the root of my blogging angst comes from comparison. I follow some of the same “big bloggers” that you do… and doesn’t it just kill you at how easy they make it look?! After some thought, I guarantee you that no matter what their niche is, they are going through the same creative struggles and time blocking issues that we all go through! (J and I cannot be alone in this…)
If you are running your blog AND working a full time job (or managing your home, or all of the above!) give yourself one huge high five. You’re a rockstar.
Now, if you want to pretend we are all in the same room, sipping wine and gabbing over blogging + working a full time job, while being awesome at both, you can listen here:

So tell me, do you have a secret? How do you balance life, work and blogging all at the same time?
