The other day I read a blog where the author admitted that at one time she spent 20 hours a week on her blog. I was dumbfounded. Not in a critical way. She can spend her time however she chooses, and for her this must have been a good use of time. But I realized just how much blogging can take over your life if you let it. And how much time it can take to write a “successful” blog.
I don’t have 20 hours a week. I don’t have 10. I have a few minutes a day, and some days, no minutes.
I love to write. I have ever since I started journaling at age 10. I could write all day. But I don’t have all day. And I’m sure I don’t have enough profound things to say to justify that, either!
So it comes to a matter of not “over-spending” the time I spend at the computer.
I need to write what God tells me to write, and to blog with as much excellence as possible, while staying within healthy parameters.
