I'm Struggling With Blogging

That’s a pretty bold statement right there, I’m Struggling With Blogging. But, it is the truth for Odysseys With Love. I have not been able to really think of a good blog post in a while now. I don’t know the direction that I want to take Odysseys in anymore, and the truth of it is, I have struggled with everything. I use to be able to come up with 2-4 post a week. 
I noticed my struggle after losing so many of my blog post a while back. I haven’t wanted to go back and rewrite them. So, sitting down this morning, I look at the list I created a while back about these post, and know I am going to recreate them one at a time, but I also haven’t had the support at home to write these lately.  That’s for later. Let’s look at what is keeping me from writing, and what I want to do to correct it.

Time, Influencing The Blog

I waste a lot of time. I am bad about playing on the computer and not doing things that I should. Take last week for instance. I was more worried about Odysseys Creations. My new adventure. Yes, this might be important in the future. I am hoping that it will take off and I will turn it into a career too. BUT that is all I did last week. 
I SUCK at time management. I will get on my computer and sit here for hours on end. Not doing anything important. I let my house go even. It’s a wreak. I know I have to do something about it. That is when I noticed Time Blocking on Pinterest. I thought it was interesting, and started to learn a little more about it. That’s what I did this morning. I started to tweak my google calendar to block out times for me to get things done. 

So, I am going to try and focus on using this to schedule out my day and really get things done. If this works, you may see a full post just on using time blocking. 

Money and Odysseys With Love

We all know that making money with blogging is possible. BUT! you have to work for it, and it is going to take a long time. I have not put much effort into making money with Odysseys With Love and have not really invested in it either. Why? It has been hard on our family financially this year. With me not making much if anything with my photography this year, but again I haven’t put much effort into that either this year. That is all changing as I am planning to put myself out there again this year. 
With money being tight, we haven’t been able to do a lot this year to blog about. Silly me, why not look and blog about the free things to do in Dallas and Fort Worth! So, I am planning a few new outing in the coming weeks, along with Blogging and Video work from our trip to Enchant!

Sitting Down and Creating A Content Calandar

I have not had a direction that Odysseys really was heading towards. That has to change and I really have to start thinking about what direction I want Odysseys to go. So my next thing is creating a content calendar and REALLY sticking to it. I am going to start working Odysseys With Love, and make this into something, not just something I do every once in a while. I hate that I feel like I have failed my few readers I do have. 
I have to plan out Odysseys, both the blog, social media, and emails, and more! 

I Am Finding My Way With Blogging

I know this post seems a little scattered, but, I am trying to find my way with everything and things are going to change in the new year. I am going to be a better businesswoman, a better partner to my husband James, A better Mother and Daughter. Things are changing and For the better!

    Hi Megan,
    I can really relate to this post! I’ve been struggling for a few weeks but then life has been hectic, I’ve moved down the country and started a new job. I plan to make a content calendar too, hope we can both get back on track! Would love to know if time blocking works for you once you try it!
    Take care,
    Hayley x
