    What a wonderful portfolio! This is something I need to get together. I just can’t seem to find the time sometimes! Thanks for sharing!

    What a nice reminder. Blogging can and will take up as much time as you let it. I’m a fairly new blogger (1 1/2 yrs in) and I see it clear as a bell. I don’t always adjust my time right either, because I like to blog. Balance is key to most things though, and that’s true w/blogging too. 🙂

    Great post. As a blogger myself, I totally get it. Thanks for sharing.

    I feel the same about my blog, there are so many things I never thought about it needing and still I find myself working on improving it, much more than I would like. Simply because I don’t have the time. But at the moment, my blog is the only thing I want to do, I feel so much better working on and for it than on any other job I had.

      It’s best when what you do is totally rewarding. I got into blogging for exactly that reason, over 10 years ago. It has been a long journey over here!

    Sometimes we all need a break from all of this crazyness!! Portfolio looks very good!

  7. It is so easy to get caught up in your blog. You are right, we are each the boss, and we need to realize that!

  8. Such a nice reconstruction and good portfolio. Mine is still on construction, lol
    I have stumbled here twice and I find this site neat and beautiful. great job 😀

  9. yes I agree. I am a one gal show and it gets crazy with deadlines but I love it. I have learned to say no too!

    1. Holly says:

      Saying no is super important regardless of where you work, I think. Recognizing your abilities and your own limits is the only thing that is going to help you better juggle everything you’ve got going on. I think I’m still learning that.

    It has definitely been difficult for me to balance blogging with my family and other aspects of my life. I think it’s always going to be a struggle and balancing act!

    Wow this is exactly what I needed to read right now! mine has totally started taking over my life the last few weeks and ive began to feel overwhelmed. Thank you so much for sharing this! I loved reading it!

      I’m so glad that my experiences have resonated in you, though the subject matter and what has us going through these experiences can kind of suck. Here’s to resetting our goals and getting motivated again for the sake of getting motivated.

    I’ve only been blogging for 7 months and it definitely takes up a lot of time! Your portfolio looks amazing though 🙂

  13. This is a really good reminder. I am definitely in need of re-inspiration these days.

  14. I am a relatively new blogger but I experience similar feelings. Sometimes life is just too busy and family and my work just take too much time to blog. Then I feel blog-guilt and my blog gets very needy, at least in my head.
