  1. I’ve never really thought about how long I spend on my blog because I see it as such a hobby. Still, I guess for a hobby – including actually doing the things I post about, around 10 hours is probably accurate. Scary when you think about it given that that’s longer than a full working day!

  2. This struck such a chord with me today!
    I started a new career this year and my time for blogging is just whittling away. When I do find a few minutes to devote to it, I don’t have the brain power to follow it through. So where before I was perhaps finding a couple of hours a day for blogging, I’m now lucky if I find that in a fortnight. I started off worrying massively about the impact that it would have on my blog but actually the lack of time has meant that my posts have changed and become more and more about me, my feelings, my little world – it’s turning into the online journal I always wanted it to be…I do feel bloody guilty when I don’t post anything for a couple of days though.
    And that video? Perfect.

  3. I go on Pinterest and look at other blogs in my spare time. Whilst I am doing this, I gather ideas for future blogs and either pin images or save them onto my desktop. Then I gather resources/images for my next blog and enhance these in Photoshop.

    To write a blog post, it normally takes me about 2 hours max. So altogether, it’s about 4 – 5 hours.

    I work at home as a graphic designer/illustrator and I find blogging develops my creative skills.

    I’m still finding ways to blog in quicker time – perhaps do 1 big post and 2 smaller ones :-)

  4. That depends whether you count the time I spend reading the books I review. If not, then 6-8 hours per week, I’d guess. If you do count reading time, then it’s 20+ hours per week. But I’d be doing some of that reading anyway, and it’s hard to say which of it is extra. I do look at how much of my time it’s taking every so often, but I consider my blog a key part of my CV, not just a hobby, so the time isn’t really an issue.
