When I started this blog I was working a corporate job that had LOTS of downtime. I easily had three hours a day to write, edit, prepare photos and post. It seems being a full-time mom, though, is much more work than any of my recent jobs. I think being at home with Sabine is a lot more like being a news reporter – I was always on the go, scrambling to make deadlines, staying late to finish and get the paper to press. Today I’m always on the go taking Sabine out to socialize, play, run errands, etc. We scramble to finish the day’s chores and get dinner on the table. I stay up late to finish the day’s tasks or, just to sit on the couch for an hour and finally breathe. It is easily more than a full-time job.
All of this to say that almost 11 months into motherhood I’m still having a hard time fitting blogging time into my schedule. I also spend a lot of time writing and deleting posts because I’m not entirely set on my new “voice” here. Parenting after infertility is a weird area to be in both life and blog. Esperanza posted a reader survey last week and got a lot of great information to help her blog better suit her readers. I participated and was so happy when I saw things that I suggested actually put into action. I felt part of something bigger and it made me all warm and fuzzy inside. I want you to feel part of something bigger, too, and I want to hear how you feel about parenting after infertility blogs in general!
Below is a survey that I would love you to fill out. It’s quick and will really help me structure Scrambled Eggs to best suit my audience. Thank you in advance for your help and I look forward to reading your responses!
