Once I started delving into this issue of blocking off time for thing, and allotting time for things, it occurred to me that with things that devour time, like perusing the internet for pretty and new blogs, are best when they are reigned in. As much as I would love to fart around all day being inspired and encouraged by lovely people far away (or close, who on Earth knows??) for Heaven's sake one child is still in diapers and the other is constantly asking for glasses of water. (I guess diapers and water are a necessity, and blogging, is not?)
I'm curious how you organize your chunks of time given to you. I have tended towards doing things in big batches. Like about one day a week I'll work on my blog. I'll draft up posts for the week (if it's cheating to schedule them then I'm a cheater) and fiddle with it for a bit. Another day I'll catch up on reading others blogs and I love that every time I do it always seems there's a theme. Like everyone is collectively working on the same art project and it's growing, expanding in exciting ways. One does swirls which makes another think of flowers and then oooh! Flowers on swirls!
At any rate. Coffee time is about to start and that is one little appointment I scarcely miss.
