It’s no secret I work full-time while also blogging. Honestly it’s not easy. It’s a lot of hard work, but it’s totally and completely possible to do both!
In today’s video, I’m breaking down the strategies and tips I use to balance both! I’m also sharing the specific tools I use.
As a reminder, I post new videos every Monday! I focus primarily on wellness, beauty, fashion, and lifestyle. Today’s video is a little different, but I’m passionate about this topic. Balancing a full-time job and my blog is my life every single day and I love sharing what I’ve learned.
Check it out!
How to you balance all the things in your life?

I find it really easy to get carried away with a project especially my blog, so I try to set timers for tasks with short breaks in between. Nipa

Great tips! Planning and scheduling is so important because it’s easy to get overwhelmed with ideas. I do wish there was a way to be successful without sacrificing sleep, though. When I’m sleep deprived, I’m considerably less effective at both my FT job *and* writing, so I actually make sleep my first priority before both of those.
I also work full time and blog! Definitely not easy but so worth it I think! Personally I love knowing that my day job pays my life expenses so that I can save blogging income for more fun things!

I also work full time and blog and I totally agree that it’s difficult. I’m glad you have found what works for now. I need to be better about scheduling time for photos. I often run out of photos for Instagram.

It’s always a balancing act when you have so much on your plate!
I am currently not working a 9-5 and blog full time and it is still difficult. It’s very rewarding though.

I LOVE seeing posts where people like you, who balance full time jobs and blogs, break down exactly how you do it as it makes the whole thing seem more achievable! Once some of my health issues are sorted out, I am hoping to FINALLY dive into full time work, whilst using my extra income to fund my blog better and purchase resources that will help me grow. I know it’ll be stressful both working AND growing a blog, but I love both things so much, and seeing other people do it too makes me feel very inspired!
So good to hear your ideas!! I also work full-time in addition to blogging, and it can be wonderful at times and a struggle at other times. Your detailed breakdown is such a gift.

It’s so admirable that you balance both! I feel like there are times I can find balance quickly followed by times I can’t. Lol.
