Finding the time to blog

There is a slight irony in writing a blog post about why it can be difficult to find time to actually write a blog post about more meaningful topics. But here I find myself.

I think there is a degree of truth in that we can find the time to do nearly anything, we just prioritise those things we feel are more important or worth our time. That said, I genuinely don’t have much time to write this blog post and I’m trying to fit one in before I meet my friends to go for a run.

…we just prioritise those things we feel are more important or worth our time.

Next week is busy.

An old friend who moved away many years ago is back for the week. I am seeing him for a few beers after work on Monday. I am meeting another friend who is in London straight after work on Tuesday and another couple of friends after work on Thursday, again in London. This leaves Wednesday evening to do most of the things I normally spread out across the other weekday and not much time to actually write.

It’s easy for blogging to take a back seat

It’s extremely easy for blogging to take a back seat. I have found this out in a past life. A couple of days without writing a blog post can easily role into a week and then two. Before you realise a month has past without writing.

The trust is a short blog post like this can easily be fit in-between other things. But herein lies the problem. It is in danger of becoming a side-task, something that can easily be “done latter”.

And just like that my time is nearly up or I risk running late for my friends.
