I think in a nutshell, I’d say I blog the whole day. But….
My usual routine is that I catch up with my comments, and reader when I get up in the morning. After that, during the day I keep an eye on my WP reader and notifications. I respond to comments off and on.
Later in the day when I’m free, I write and preschedule my post for the next day.
Then I spend time with my family and just before retiring to bed, I take a look at my blog, answer comments and read and comment on the blogs that I follow.
In my estimation, this takes up to 4-5 hours of my waking time.
I think I’d slowly go bonkers with boredom if I didn’t have my blog to occupy me.
I still have time to spend time with my family, chat with my friends and when there were no restrictions on going out, I’d go out with family or friends for recreation.
Blogging has not only developed into a very good hobby for me but is also keeping me mentally active, which is very important if one wants to avoid early dementia.
And the community here is awesome. It’s like meeting friends every day.
I am happy at the time I spend blogging and it pays back handsomely.
