My blog and I are off on a slight tangent at the moment. As you would have guessed if you read my last post The Unbalanced Mummy Blogger I've been thinking a lot about the way I go about blogging, how it eats up such a lot of my time and how I can be more balanced about my approach to it. I loved all the feedback and comments from yesterday. Thank-you so much for sharing your own ways of balancing life with blogging. If you to are interested in life/blog balance Louisa from Everything is Edible and Kym from A Day In the Life of Us have also written great posts on the subject. So today I'm hoping I won't be stretching the friendship if I ask one more question.

Do you schedule posts regularly? I've struggled with this as my writing style is very much that I write what I am feeling right now and I'm not sure how that would translate to planned writing. I don't pretend to be a 'writer' of any type and I have no formal training greater than high school English (and years of writing work reports, but I'm a social welfare worker so not so creative more informative.) I'm just a gal who is good with words and loves to write about what is going on around her. To be honest the thought of pre-writing and scheduling is a little scary (it's okay I scare easily) but it seems it may well be the best way to create the blog/life balance I want/desire/need and enable me to keep doing what I love. And that has to be a good thing - right?
Do you pre-write and schedule posts? Does doing it make a difference for you? Is there a special secret that makes sheduling work for you?
