Managing Full Time Blogging & Kids ALL Summer Long

Deb just posted some excellent summer options for work-at-home parents and they’re handy but I have a few more suggestions along with some helpful tips. Summer, for me is a little like 3 months worth of chaos. Not only does my son’s free school shut down, but my partner’s kiddos are at the house more. Three kids + FT paid blogging + FT self-run projects = insanity on my part. It’s like a much longer winter break; ugh. First read managing work in a chaotic household for some general help then keep reading below for some summer specific tips. Summer [Read more…]

I woke especially early today to tackle my to do list. I tried for a working weekend last weekend and it just didn’t happen. I commented on another blog recently that the best way for me to stay focused and productive is to plan ahead. Everything I do is scheduled. Last week, I had a bunch of meetings scheduled at school and it through me off of my schedule, thus, the need to catch up. Sometimes I’m a huge fan of the four day work week. Other days, I’m ready to sign the petition for an eight day week. So [Read more…]
