Finding My Center in the Blogsphere

It's been a while since I blogged here at Liza's Eyeview. A lot have happened since then. One of those that "have happened" is that I now work as social media coordinator - full time, with pay. What was once a hobby is now my job. Most people would say I am lucky. In other words, I am blessed.

One danger of turning a hobby into a job is the possibility of burn-out. Generally, passionate people who are pasionate about what they do are susceptible to burn out because they give so much of themselves doing the things that they do, that sometimes their minds or bodies cannot keep up. That's the way with me sometimes. But I don't want to get burned out right now. I am enjoying my job and I intend to keep it that way.

Tonight I decided to came back to Lizas Eyeview to visit my blogging roots, to get grounded and be refreshed. When I say "finding my center in the blogosphere" I meant "finding balance". At my current job right now I am developing two new blogs, on a tight budget (understandable in this current economy). That means I cannot outsource it, I have to do it all. I like blogging so that's a good thing, but there are so much to do. Aside from the 2 work blogs, I also have to re-construct my A Maui Blog because it was recently hacked. A lot of the fixing and rebuilding is already done, but  there are still so many details I need to organize and update on.  This should a good timing to do it, but it can't be a priority over my 2 other projects. And aside from my full-time job, I'm still doing a part time job helping a friend develop and mainatin his social media involvement. So you see, I am pretty busy.  This is not even counting doing my wifey and mommy duties - lets not go there for now.

Going back to Lizas Eyeview, it's amazing how even with the irregular postings, my page rank is still considerably high in Google Page ranking. OK, let's not go there either.

I had a great time visiting the blogs of my "old" bloggy friends.  I think I'd do this more often.

My eyes are heavy now and I am dozing off.  I think I'm going to back and will continue this musing tomorrow....

Liza, it is a lot of work to keep up a blog. Each time I creat a "real" post I admire those who do it consistently. When it comes off seemingly effortless it's amazing.putting it all together is tedious!
