I count blogging as a job, albeit one that pays with pretty products and comments rather than cold hard cash each month. If I could do it as a full time job, I’d jump at the chance as I find the whole process of running a site, writing posts and the photography and design elements hugely gratifying and creative, especially for a girl who did Journalism with the hopes of writing for some sort of publication. Blogging for me is one of my jobs, and one where I’m the boss which is very cool. I put it on my CV’s and it’s opened up all sorts of doors for me so far.
But during the day time, I’m working part time in PR. Part time works means I’ve loads of time to do others things I like and blog to by heart’s content, all the while still having the few days of structure and all important pay to keep me going. I get to work with beauty products which is fantastic and the job came about through my contacts with the blog, which is amazing. I love my part time work and it also makes me appreciate the hard work the PR girls who I deal with through the blog carry out on a daily basis. Even more, since I was job hunting for what seemed like eternity, it’s fantastic to have a job now and I don’t take it for granted.
So I know not all of you may want to share, but I’d love to know your other jobs apart from blogging or if you’re a student or on the job hunt like I was for so long? And how does it fit alongside your blogging, do you struggle to have enough time to blog?
