Does it infringe upon your leisure time? Not really. Being retired my time is my own, so I am free to blog for as long or as little as I like. However, it does not come first with me so some days I don’t access my blog until late afternoon or early evening.
Worse still, does it distract you from your work/studies ? No If anything it makes my mind stretch and work better.
Is it taking a toll on your personal relationships ? Definitely not.
Has your health suffered? No. If anything, it has helped relieve stress or anxiety because of the support that exists within the Blogging Community. I am due for surgery at the end of the month and the support I have received has been overwhelming.
Have you gained weight ? Nothing to do with blogging. My weight is on velcro, though I’m trying to address it and doing pretty well right now.
Do you ever get writer’s block? Don’t we all at some stage?
Have you ever suffered from blog related stress or blogger burn out? Not that I’m aware of.
It would be great if you answered these questions because I would love to know how you are balancing blogging with other things in your life so I can make some improvements. If you answer them in a separate post please link back to this post and use the hashtag # Cost of Blogging
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
