Some people have asked over the years how I find time to blog while doing all the other things I share on my blog. Kids, animals, family, gardening, are some of the things I spend time doing and somehow manage to get a post up daily. So here is the answer. I blog on the fly. I rarely plan blog posts, I just look at photos I have snapped during daily life and pic a topic. I may work on some posts longer than others but usually it is a straight session of loading pictures and writing the post.
As for photos. I rarely ever edit them. I just don't have time for this step. On occasion I will edit a photo but mostly I just load straight onto the blog. What you see is real life so the pile of laundry in the back ground just stays in the photo. I love the gorgeous photos I see on other blogs and maybe my lack of good quality photos holds my blog back. I have no idea but it doesn't really matter to me. I just want to connect with others and blog the way I live in what I call organized chaos. Sharing tips that have helped me and things that I just plain enjoy. If it ever is not fun any longer, I will end this journey.
Some of my favorite blogs that I make sure to never miss a post are just basic life filled blogs. That is what I am drawn to. Simple ways. I have often wondered where I fit in the blog world as I most certainly am not a craft blogger, not really home decor and not a particularly good cook just a basic one. So I think I am a "life" blogger. One who shares her life. My ways of doing this and figuring out how to do that. If it is something that has helped me or makes my life easier I love to share it.
If you are a new blogger than definitely follow the rule many have shared that imitation may be a form of flattery but it does not work in the blog world for longevity. Blog your life. Blog things that are beautiful to you. Share things that have moved you and bring joy to you. If you love it chances are others will to. Let your life be your blogging guide. I never over think or plan much. I am glad to have this hobby that brings me far more than I have ever imagined, a connection to women that brings me great joy every day I log onto Sunny Simple Life.
