Now that I've been blogging for 3+ years I know that the reality is most likely very different. At least for me it is. I thought I'd give you a glimpse into my reality that is blogging with a toddler in the house.
Let's have a look at the photo that I posted above, but zoomed out. Oh look, it's my son! Lining up his matchbox cars on my desk.
Right next to my desk is my son's play area. He's almost 2. And he has a love of cars.
I set up his play area there deliberately, the idea being that I could blog while he played. But that never happens. If I so much as sit down in front of the computer you can bet your last dollar that Luca will try to climb onto my lap and "help" mummy work.
|An old photo of Luca but this is pretty much what happens almost every time I sit down to blog when he's awake - he insists on climbing onto my lap!|
As for those neatly organised shelves full of beauty products? Oh puhhleeese, they're all in boxes under my desk! Although I do have a system of sorts, so that the ones I must blog about by a certain date are in 1 box, the others where I don't have time pressures are in another box.
My desk is set up in our sunroom which is so bright and airy, but as you can guess I hardly use it during the day. I do the majority of my blogging in the evening when Luca is asleep, and if there's something good on TV then I plonk myself on the couch while keeping one eye on the box and one eye on the blog.
For me blogging is a hobby, I guess if I was doing it professionally then I might make more of an effort to have an organised set up, but right now this suits me. Because the reality is I have a toddler son and everything revolves around him, including blogging!
Are you a blogger? Do you have a blogging station set up or do you blog wherever and whenever you get the chance?
