Ask Me Anything – Time Spent Blogging

This question comes from cyn209:

How much time do you spend on your blog, & going through other blogs??????

And this one from Carol Wong:

Do you ever feel that the blog is too much work to maintain? I am curious but I don’t think I would ever have enough energy to do what you do.

The amount of time I spend on my blog varies from day to day and week to week. I usually spend at least an hour each morning getting posts ready and answering emails and then I regularly check email and visit other blogs throughout the day.  When I sit down for lunch or just need a break I post a giveaway.

There have been days I’ve spent 4 or 5 hours working on my blog to get caught up. This morning I had tons of giveaway winners that needed to be chosen and it took me a couple hours to get that done. Monday I’ll spend most of the morning working on the Spooktacular Giveaway Hop linky to make sure everyone has their post up.  Then of course there is all time I spend reading. Reality is I spend way to much time on this “hobby”.

There have been times when this blog has felt like too much work to maintain. When my son got sick earlier this year I cut way back. I went from over 100 posts a month to just over 50.  I blog because I enjoy it. If it ever becomes a burden or too much work I’ll cut back.
