The Second Shift

Of Blogging

So, today when I got a message from my sister that said, "oh dude! ur famous!" (big compliment from little sib) or Facebook wall posts professing jeaoulsy, I wasn't actually sure if I was too excited about the link love Feministing shared with me. What I was actually thinking was, But I'm at work...I don't have time to update content to match the increased traffic I'm seeing on my blog. This is a great chance to take my blog to new level...but I need to focus on my 9 to 5. (Which is not to say that I don't appreciate the linkage - or the fact that feminist bloggers are rallying behind women's studies to defend the discipline against attacks.)

But, as a working girl, at the end of the day, well, the last thing that I want to do is to spend more time sitting at a screen. While I enjoy theorizing feminist style, entertaining analysis seems like a bit of a stretch at the end of the day. Which only makes me more impressed by all those stellar bloggers out there who have worked out the work/blog/life balance. But I do have a bit of envy for those professional blog writers out there.

Of course, much like when I whined about working on my thesis, folks really aren't that interested in hearing my excuses about why content has been kind of lame over the last month, or why I haven't followed up on doing some redesign, or...And really, I'm going to try to take today's lesson and use it as a motivator to get back into the blogging habit. Because ya never know when 200 extra people are gonna stop by for some casual reading.

Thanks for sticking with me and not deleting me from your RSS feeds!
