I went to bed ridiculously late last night because I was doing work and I had no inspiration for a post until I thought about it some more. The reason I had no post ready to go was because I had been doing so much work so it seemed like a good idea to write about this. Blogging while working is no joke.
As some of you may know, I am a teacher. This means that I am at school by 07:00 every morning and get home at around 15:30 or so. By the time I get home I am exhausted – working with children will do that to you! Now being tired is no problem; that has become a normal part of my life. But trying to think of blog inspiration when you can hardly remember your own name is not ideal. Also, trying to take blog photos when I get home hardly ever works out as planned as the sun usually isn’t shining in the right spot. This means that I need to take photos in advance – over the weekends. I say that but to be honest I don’t do that nearly as often as I should.
Working as a teacher does mean that I get to do something rewarding and something that I love. If you have ever seen the look on a child’s face as they figure something out you will know why I love my job so much. It also does not mean that my job starts and ends when I am at school. Just last night I spent 9 straight hours working on reports for my children. I do try and do most of my work at school but sometimes it just isn’t possible. Having a job outside of blogging also means that I have money to spend on things for blogging 😉
On a side note; I think a lot of people think I don’t take my blogging seriously because I have another job. That really frustrates me. I don’t see why you can’t do both. Being a teacher I get to be in a classroom and make a difference to children. And being a blogger I get to come home from a long day at work and relax while taking photos and writing, which are two things that I love to do.
Are you studying or do you have another job apart from blogging? If so then how do you juggle the two?
