How do you do it? So, if anyone is still out there, (I know a few are.) and you are anything like me or know someone like me, how do you do it? The whole four kids, homeschooling, teaching outside the home, cooking, cleaning, knitting, planning, blogging part? Maybe I'm forgetting something? Oh yeah, add nursing, volunteering, socializing, partnering, sleeping and chauffeuring to the list. I'll let you know if I think of anything else.

I have a bunch of balls up in the air right now. I dropped the house one. It shattered. I spent two weekends picking up the pieces and have that one back together. I dropped the blog one. You all know what happened here. My one year anniversary went by. My 100th post was back in May. I know by the numbers that others were visiting more frequently than I was. *sheesh*

In an attempt to get myself back in gear here I've joined NaBloPoMo. Some of my friends are writing novels in 30 days. I'm going to post here every day, maybe.

And please leave a comment if you have any blogging tips!

I'm doing NaNoWriMo *and* resurrecting my blog (though not writing one post per day)... I guess I should live it up before I have kids and no free time!

I'll have to go check that out too. I have troubles also with keeping up with my blog. I've learned to (try) not to stress out over this and just do it when I can.

But I've found that Plinky really helps with random ideas of things to post about without being NOT about you. And you can decide day to day what you want to be added to your blog. Worth a shot --

It's funny, because I blog more when I'm busy/stressed. I think it's because I unwind through writing. So on a hellish day, I might forgo sleep to 'get it all down' before bed. If it's a chore or not soul-fueling to write, it might be harder to find the time. In that case, no guilt! Do what fuels you, I say. :)

I'll do what I can to help you out. I love reading your blog. Looking forward to the halloween pictures tomorrow!

Thank you all for the support and ideas, and GO Maya! Sarah informed me today that she wants to write a novel now. I think I need a bit more prep time.
