How Do Other Bloggers Do It?

I know I shouldn’t be, but I am totally jealous of other blogs.

I read several blogs every single day and get envious of all the perfect photographs, the outfit posts, the “hauls”, and the consistent posting. Like, how do these people do it?

I know there are lots of beauty bloggers who receive PR samples and freebies, but how do the ones that don’t afford all of these products? My favorite posts to both read and write are beauty product reviews, but when I read other blogs I get discouraged. There’s no possible way I could ever afford to purchase the makeup “hauls” that these other bloggers do. It totally confuses me. 

How do these people have time to post every single day? I know some people are able to make a living off blogging and therefor generating blog content is their full time job. But, what about the others- how do they have time to generate all of this content, take photos, and write 5+ posts a week?

As a full-time working mom, I find it extremely difficult to post even once a week. I find it even harder to have time to include good quality photos or even generate blog-worthy content. Maybe I’m lacking the drive to use my weekends to create 5 posts for the upcoming week or to devote 100% of my free time to blogging, but I feel like I’m missing something.

This blog is definitely a direct reflection of my life- I posted a lot more when I was working part-time and a student, and hardly ever post now that my life has picked up. After baby comes and I’m home all day, I really hope that I can commit to blogging more frequently. For the time being I’m stuck wondering how these awesome bloggers balance it all.

It's A Boy!

This post may contain affiliate links or banners, but all opinions are my own. Read my full disclosure statement here.

In my last post, we were eagerly anticipating finding out the gender of our baby. Last weekend the ultrasound finally came and we learned that we're having a baby boy!
Our whole family was hoping for a little boy, but now that we know, I'm overwhelmed with happiness.

 It will be a completely new experience for us as we're used to dealing with little girls, but I'm extremely excited for the journey.
Just over the weekend, we received our first boy oriented gifts and it became real- there's a baby boy coming in less than 5 months! I instantly feel behind- everything I have is for a baby girl. I have a to-do list that could wrap around the world, but I'm ready to take it on!

A comparison: 18 weeks pregnant currently with baby boy & almost 6 years ago with baby girl.
