Aloha Friday - A Time to Blog





Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani from An Island Life. Over there in Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So Kailani thought that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting, too. So, for Aloha Friday, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Answer my question and put one of your own up on your blog. Link up and check out other blogs that participate at An Island Life.


Where in the day do find time to blog and when do you find time to read your favorite blogs?


I have been spending literally all day in front of my laptop lately. Well, as much as I can considering I am taking care of my kids. I am still trying to find a balance that works for me and for my family. I have been neglecting household chores among other miscellaneous responsibilities just to keep up lately. There has to be a better way, so that's why my question is where in the day do find time to blog and when do you find time to read your favorite blogs?

In the morning is my time. Sometimes I blog all day then schedule them to post on different days. That way it gives me time to surf.
Here's my Aloha Friday link for you

I tend to blog at night when my hubby is home and he's playing with the boys. Of course, on days when my little guy naps I am able to get things done and scheduled in advance. Reading happens in spurts when I have a free moment here and there.

In the morning and again before everyone comes home.

I work outside of the home as a receptionist, so I do a TON of it then.. I don't blog too much at night, however I have my blackberry on me at all times, and I check it all hours of the night. Baby needs a sippy? Check the email... it's an addiction.

Without my BB, I'd go insane! It is my lifeline.

Happy Aloha Friday!

Hope you will come and visit Crunchy Green Mom @

Great question! I hop on and off throughout the day when the kids are busy playing. Most of my blog time is at nap. I used to do get up early to work on a few things or catch up on reading and it made the day so much smoother. I would love to start doing that again if I can ever get over this cold.

All day - in between housework and while watching TV!!

I blog and read at the same time. I just hop on to check email and then read a few blogs, tweet, respond to email and then I'm gone again. Just have to grab a few minutes here and there when I can.

Well, I check some blogs when my girls are napping (1 hour). And then I write a post for my blog and check other blogs after 8:30 or 9:00 p.m. for 2 or 3 hours (is my best hobbie).

Have a nice weekend.

My ass is flat. That's your answer.
i am still struggling with that.
Stacie said…
I try to early in the morning and later at night. Sometimes during the day. I too lately have been neglecting my cleaning but we have been sick too. I am actually behind in reading blogs and hope to catch up this weekend.
Becca said…
I am suddenly staying up until midnight or 1 am trying to keep up with all of my blogging stuff :/
Alicia said…
Good question!!!

I do alot early in the morning, and catch up late at night. Between blogging, commenting, homeschooling, and then hubby coming home around 4, it can vary day by day!!
ModernMom said…
There are not enough hours in the day. I end up comenting late late at night and spend too much time worrying about neglecting all my bloggy friends. Must learn to balance better!
It's a struggle but I try when little one is napping in the afternoons.
Twincerely,Olga said…
in the a.m. and naptime and in the evening!! whenever I can!LOL
The Blue Zoo said…
My only time to write is at night. So I end up staying up very late like 1am. Then my only time to read other blogs is in the morning. My house is thrashed. I really need to find a better schedule! Cause this isnt workin' out so well!
Susan Anderson said…
I fit it in whenever I can and chores be damned, LOL. I try to do it in the morning before work and after the girls go to bed. Blogher's scheduled posts really help as well.
Helene said…
I usually write new blog posts late at night when the kids are in bed and the house is quiet...you know, when I can hear my own thoughts. But throughout the day, I'll keep a pen and paper handy in case something pops into my head that's worthy of blogging about.

As far as reading/commenting, I do that early in the morning and usually after my hubby comes home from work. I'll sometimes hop on for a few minutes here and there if the kids happen to be involved in something.

It's a constant struggle. I want to keep in touch with the outside world but at the same time I don't want to look at my kids one day and think "when did they get so big?"
