Busy Weekend! Blog Research and Crafting

Where does the weekend go? I've been online 8 hours today. I have signed up with Blogelina for a beginning blogger's course. I decided that I want to take my blog to another level. I've been playing around with it for over one year now and lately, I've been giving my blog a lot of thought. I've had fun with it, but I see a lot of bloggers making extra money and that appeals to me (being out of work for two months will do that). I am working on some items and will be opening an etsy shop soon, but I don't want to put all of my eggs in one basket. I am finding a lot of good information, but still welcome any advice from my blog friends. However, if this is all new to you and you have questions about starting a blog, or are interested in getting reliable information, check out this blog. Blogelina

I also spend a lot of time crafting in my head, as I'm working full-time.

I try to squeeze it all in on the weekend. As a result, I have 3 craft projects 3/4 of the way done right now. I move from one to the next, working on one while paint is drying on another, then moving on the next while the glue is drying
on the last.

So, here I am, at the end of another weekend, with not nearly enough accomplished. How do you find time to fit it all in? I'd love to hear from you!


  1. Visiting from SITS. You make me want to make something! I attended Bloggy Boot Camp and learned so much! I'm currently moving to and trying to learn Wordpress. thinking of approaching small companies i like about selling ad space.

  2. I have to make myself get off the computer and do my real work...and then I have to make myself get back on the computer to blog. I always end up avoiding one or the other. Basically, I force myself to get it done. Bad advice, huh?

  3. hi! following from mbc, getting followers can follow back @ thanks!!

  4. i just gave you an award, my friend. check it out:

  5. Here from the Cape on the Corner! My blogging advice is to read go through the archives and READ. There are millions of tips and hints and great ideas. Make notes about things that apply to you and your readership and really spend some time figuring out where & what you want your blog to be. Join sites like technorati, blogher, SITS, whatever might apply to you to get your name and be a part of the community.

    Best of luck to you!

  6. Striking a good balance is always tricky. It just take practice, after a while it will get easier.
