Westside, That's Right

Belt: J. Crew

I must admit I've been REALLY bad with blogging recently. I've been trying to post on a regular basis (from my knowledge I think I still am) but my keeping up with comments, and other's new posts, has been abysmal. My day job (which has become more of a life job) has taken over for the time being and it's interrupting my normal blogging routine. 

I think this is the first time, in the whole (almost) two years of my blog, that I truly DO NOT feel like a blogger. I'm actually welcoming that feeling as during fashion week I felt very out of the conventional "blogging group". I constantly feel that I am more and more on my own by having a blog and a "life" job. I know it's just "that time of season" where work is CRAZY but it feels like this is an epitome of sorts. 

I was actually appalled at this year's "quit your day job" seminars that were at the Lucky Mag and IFB conferences. What if you want to blog AND do your day job. Does it really have to be one or the other?

Are there any fellow bloggers out there who struggle to keep up with their work life and their blog life? How do YOU do it?

people are jumping the gun way to much with being "full-time bloggers" i think it's still really important to have a back-up and to experience other facets of the industry. everything happens organically... i'm not quitting anything until i know blogging is something that can support me fully. plus i'm 19, so what do i know? :>

gorg!

Love all your thoughts on being a blogger. It's nearly impossible to survive by just being a blogger - most of us definitely have day jobs as well.

p.s. love your layering in this outfit! xx

first - love the belt and color combo in this outfit. it's great on you.

i get the day job thing. i work too and it's how i make my money (obviously my blog isn't large enough to even consider doing that) but i would like to keep designing and doing what i love and went to college for. i like having the two parts. it is hard to juggle - i set aside some time each night and try not to stress when i can't keep up as much as others

I'm glad you're really speaking your mind. I bet just saying this feels good. And obviously like 90% of us feel the same way. I mean, how many pictures of our feet can we take and still feel fulfilled?

I have 2 jobs and then try to keep up my blog, and honestly, some days I couldn't care less. What I do like, though, is always knowing that I have an outlet for the things that I love - whatever those might be. So I've been trying ot think of it as less of an obligation and as more of a little buddy who will always be there for me when I need a good close up shot of my fav leather shoes to brighten my day.

Tough subject.

Great post.
