Let's Talk With Smash & Kt (5)

, by Kt Clapsadl

Welcome to the Let’s Talk weekly discussion meme!

Originally hosted by Melissa from i swim for oceans, Smash & Kt took her original inspiration, and made it their own, expanding it to more than just books. Let’s get personal (but respectfully so) and learn more about one another!  Each week, a different question will be posted along with a place to link up your posts and visit other people’s responses.This meme is definitely meant to bring out conversation and meet new people. So, Let's Talk!  

This week's question:

How much time do you think you spend on blogging each week, including commenting on other blogs, participating in events, Twitter/Facebook blog talk, etc? Do you have a time management system that works well for you? We’d love to know! (Thank you, Vicky/Books, Biscuits and Tea!)

That is a very difficult question to answer. Since I work from home and my job as a publicist involves Twitter/Facebook and other social networks along with blogs, etc, my blogging time and working time kinda gets all lumped in together. Granted, I always start the day with work, taking care of things via email, scheduling posts, etc. But there are times throughout the day where I'll be waiting for a response on something and I try and use that "downtime" for blogging. That being said, the large majority of my blogging time is now in the evenings/weekends.

I will say that I've had to learn to keep myself more focused during the time that I'm working on blogging. Before I started working for Entangled I would start writing a review and keep getting distracted by Twitter, etc in the middle of it and before I knew it, hours have passed, and I just don't have that kind of time to spare anymore. In fact due to my blogging time being pushed back to evenings/weekends, which was my prime reading times, I've had to seriously cut back on the number of books I read. The blog isn't suffering as I'm still posting my normal 2-3 reviews a week, I just don't have time for all the "extra" books anymore. While this does bum me a little, I can't complain at all because I'm working my dream job by getting to promote authors.
