I am not going to lie, working full time and blogging is not the easiest to do. Some evenings when I get home, I want to just relax and watch tv, but that rarely actually happens. I work full time as an interior designer which I LOVE. It is so inspiring daily to look at fresh ideas for client’s homes and I get to work with one of my good friends which is a major bonus. That being said, I also blog full time as well which is my passion job, so how does that work when I am at an office every day Monday-Friday? Well… I have established a few rules for myself in order to get everything done and thought I would share them with you! So far they have worked well for me and I hope they can help inspire you too!
- Shoot 3-4 looks on one designated day a week. I usually shoot in the morning before work. That way I am feeling fresh and clear headed before my day begins.
- Keep an organized editorial calendar. This seriously helps me so much. If I don’t have it on my calendar, I won’t remember it. I write down every post that I want to do for what day, especially if I have commitments with brands for specific days.
- Work on the blog every day. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t do something for Modern Ensemble. I generally work on it at night and will dedicate 2-3 hours per night to work on content, editing photos, and come up with fresh ideas for posts.
- Respond to emails within 24 hours. I made this rule for myself and it honestly is a must. For my daytime job, I respond to emails immediately, so why wouldn’t I for my blog? I treat my blog as a business and it is way more professional to respond back to emails immediately rather than wait days on end.
