Back To School Tips: Bloggers Edition

Sunday, September 23, 2012

It's another year of high school for me.

It's actually not as bad as I thought it was going to be. But I always end up like this after school:

A couple days ago, I was asked how I manage blogging and school at the same time. Unfortunately, I still haven't figured out how to handle both. I am truly amazed by bloggers who are going to school and are still updating their blogs. High-five to you amazing people. So instead of answering the question myself, I went out and asked fellow bloggers how they are handling this. 


I have a very busy schedule. Still... I always make time to blog. The reason why? It's my way of having fun after a extremely long day. Write your blog for you, not the followers. 

3. Jen - A Reading Daydreamer

Make sure school comes first. If you're starting to feel very stressed about balancing blogging and school, take a break, or hiatus, and let your readers know. Make sure you know what YOUR priorities are.

4. Ishita - The Reading Fish

Make sure to put school first. Blogging should always come after you have done your work. Have fun and don't stress out!

5. Zareen - Reach for the Stars

Schedule some posts so that it wouldn't be so difficult to keep up now.

6. Willa - Willa's Ramblings

Keep a calendar: it helps a ton in remembering what extra stuff other than reviews are happening, especially with everything else on our minds!

7. Bailey - IB Book Blogging

It always takes me a few weeks to balance the two when the new school year starts, but don’t stress! Don’t let your blog become a job. School work sucks enough as it is. If you need to step back and take a break, readers understand.

8. Monica - Cover Analysis

This is my first year blogging and one thing I have learned is that it's hard and something you have dedicate time to. If you have school/work to do then do that first. There will always be time to book talk later.

9. Meredith - Mint Tea and a Good Book

Know when to take a step back from blogging when you're feeling overwhelmed. Blogging shouldn't be a burden, it should be fun!

10. Elena - Novel Sounds

I think I would go with make a schedule! Since I am a last minute poster, I rarely schedule posts, but having a schedule certainly helps so I can have an idea of what I am going to post.

11. Sam - Paper Cuts

Keep a planner! There's an awesome iPhone app called iStudiez. 

Schedule your posts. You'll life will be loads less hectic if you don't feel pressured to post every day.

13. Audrey - Holes in my Brain

Be prepared to be busy, and don't anguish at the fact that you have other things to do - your blog isn't going anywhere.

Anna from Literary Exploration did a great discussion post on how she manages blogging, school, work, and life. Be sure to go check it out here.

Pssstt! Guys, guess what. I just remembered that Audrey (Holes in my Brain) and I share the same birthday, and that our birthday is today! Be sure to tell Audrey ( @pinkcreamsoda ) happy birthday!
