How Does Everyone Find Time?


When and how does everyone find the time to blog, tweet and Facebook? I barely have time to blog and feel like I am letting Melinda down. Being the other half of our blog means that I should provide half of the content but that hasn’t been the case lately.

Between work, kids and the new dog I feel like I have zero time for extras like our blog or anything social media related. I get home from work around 6:00 – 6:30pm and shortly after I get home we eat dinner. After dinner I get a few minutes to relax with Melinda and the kids before they go to bed. Shaun and Shae go to bed at 8:30pm so Melinda and I get some time to ourselves to maybe watch a TV show on DVR before bed but not much and the last thing I want to do is spend it blogging or tweeting.

On the other hand I feel so guilty when I don’t blog because I then feel that our blog is suffering and I have commitments that I need to keep. Our weekends tend to be full so there isn’t much time there either. It is hard to believe there is 24 hours in the day and I find it hard to squeeze in an hour or two to blog. I guess in my head there are more important things to do with the little bit of extra time I do have so blogging takes a back seat.

Sorry if this seems like a bitch and moan fest which it probably is but seriously when do people find time to blog because I need to find the time but I just don’t know when.

When do you typically tend to do your blogging and social media work?

The Saltine Challenge

I decided to try this after my failed attempt at eating a teaspoon full of cinnamon.  I guess I thought eating 6 dry crackers was more doable, LOL.  After my cinnamon stunt I was thinking about maybe doing a stunt a week if I can continue to come up with ideas that are clever but won’t leave me wounded.  After hearing about the Saltine challenge Greg over at Telling Dad decided he was in as well because he said he was a Saltine wood chipper. LOL.  I guess we we will see if he was successful.  

Miss Blondie thought eating 6 Saltine’s in 60 seconds couldn’t be done so she decided to make a bet with me.  If she won I needed to do a video telling everyone how she was right and I sucked but since I completed the challenge sucessfully I will be waiting for her video telling me how great I am.  Man being a winner feels so good especially after my cinnamon fiasco. 

If you have any ideas for the next stunt please let me know as I am running out of ideas fast.
