I recently received this question from a follower:

“I’ve been feeling discouraged about my blog lately — in particular, my Facebook engagement. My reach is only a tenth or so of my total followers and on any given post, I only get 10-20 likes. So my question is how do I improve on Facebook? I think I have a dedicated audience in some ways, but at the same time I don’t think these numbers are very good or helpful.”

How to Find Time to Blog When You Have Young Kids

“I want to prioritize my blog, but I just can’t find the time with my young kids constantly needing my attention. How do you find time to blog when you have young kids?”

I hear this question from moms all. the. time.

Though my kids are now 14, 11, and 9, and I’ve moved on from the young-kids season, there was a long period of time when I worked full-time with young kids at home.
