The very gorgeous Salted Caramel posed this curious question over on her beautiful blog, which I found rather curious and interesting to read – Now I don’t have a huge blog and it’s mostly space for my randomness and brain vomit – but I was inspired to answer these questions posed in the following post: https://saltedcaramel670.wordpress.com/2019/10/15/what-does-blogging-cost-to-your-personal-life/
# Cost of Blogging — Questions
- Does it infringe upon your leisure time?
Nope – not unless I get a random idea and jot it down in my notebook…
- Worse still, does it distract you from your work/studies ?
Nope – I get an hour a day to blog, during my lunchtime when I have access to the internet – I don’t have that much data on my phone, so only use this sparingly at weekends (when the WP App decides to work) – as I don’t have broadband at home.
- Is it taking a toll on your personal relationships ?
Nope – Not unless you count the cat walking over the screen and wiping any text?
- Has your health suffered?
Nope – In fact I find that Blogging significantly aids my anxiety as it gives me a safe place to purge my thoughts… I don’t have any physical health issues apart from a couple of random injuries which are not blogging related…
- Have you gained weight ?
Nope – I’m actively (though slowly) trying to loose weight. In fact – there are some really interesting Health and Fitness Blogs which have inspired me.
- Do you ever get writer’s block?
All the time – that’s why I have a notebook or ideas on scraps of paper … My brain is basically scattered around in a collection of Journals and random notes…
- Have you ever suffered from blog related stress or blogger burn out?
Nope… Not at all… I look forward to my hour a day…
