As per your request, I finally took the time to track and photograph what a typical day looks like for me now that I’m a full-time blogger. I should add that no day really looks the same, but last Tuesday September 9th was about as close as it comes. Of course there were some fails, I fell behind on my schedule and plans changed but I’ve learned to accept that not everything will go according to plan. It’s also what keeps things fun!
7:15 AM – back in bed with my computer. I do 50% of my work from my bed. I already know why this is harmful for my sleep, no need to tell me…
7:15-9:00 AM – scheduling social media for the day. This includes facebook, twitter, google+, pinterest, instagram and my stumble groups. I rarely get it all done and check back in throughout the day. Respond to emails.
*8:00 AM – eat breakfast. A slice of my gluten-free & vegan banana bread recipe with an apple with peanut butter.
10:00 AM – morning snack of veggies and my roasted butternut squash hummus and one too many handfuls of popcorn (unpictured)
10:15-11:00 AM– write post for Wednesday on 5 Investments Worth Making For Your Blog.
11:00 -11:45 AM – make a recipe for the blog. Realize I’m low on tahini so recipe development for this one gets pushed off to another day.
11:45-12:00 PM – check in on social media and respond to comments.
12:00 – 12:30 PM – eat lunch. Failed kale salad topped with leftover chickpeas and chicken. Yes, I still eat all of my failed recipes.
12:30 – 1:30 PM – set up and shoot photos for Friday’s post.
2:00-2:45 PM – run to the grocery store to pick up ingredients for a soup I want to bring to my friend’s that night.
2:45 – 3:15 PM – check in on social media while drinking a Vanilla Mango Smoothie.
4:15-5:00 PM – long phone chat with C while he’s away on business.
5:00-6:00PM – check in on social media again, respond to emails, schedule my post for wednesday and start editing pictures for Friday’s post, while eating soup!
6:30-9:30 PM – an incredible dinner made by Steph. Seriously, this girl has got skill! Plus we’re both healthy foodies and could talk about everything from chia seeds to farming for hours on end.
11:00 PM – hop in bed to read a chapter from my latest book.
So there you have it! Some major things were missing aka C and Lee who were both out of town but otherwise this was a pretty typical day in my life. Lots of screen time, kitchen time and of course, good food 🙂
