I really enjoy reading the Waldorf-inspired, nature-inspired, Unschooling-inspired blogs but I always end up wondering how everyone has time to write blog posts daily or almost daily.
Do you set aside a certain time of day?
I notice that a lot of posts are written in the morning & it makes me feel like such a slacker because as we're just starting our day, some of you already have posts written about your day! Granted, some of you aren't in the US, but some of you are on the west coast & we're on the east coast!
I'm so torn on this. Part of me wants to throw my laptop out of the window because I think of all of the things I could be doing when I'm reading/posting - and it's so hard not to get sucked in to reading about the inspiring things everyone else is doing. But there's the inspiration... I get a lot of ideas, especially from the crafty bloggers. There's also the reaffirming feeling that "hey, maybe I'm not doing so bad after all" as far as what our homeschooling days look like. It's mostly cooking, cleaning, crafting, reading & some outings - which is what I see a lot of. I sometimes get a little slack from family about not doing actual school work, so it's important for me to see that it works for others too.
The other part of the screen time thing is that I don't feel so comfortable with my littles watching me have screen time on a (almost) daily basis. It feel like I'm not practicing what I preach.
I think "being in the now" is soooo important and I don't know how to be at peace with both reading & writing blogs (or other computer screen time.)
How does everyone do it? Thoughts on this?
