Today we have Debolina, a playful Mother of 2 girls who enjoy Parenting more than any other thing. She don multiple hats- Content writer, multi-niche Blogger, Traveler, Photographer and a Social worker.
Her tales in her words-
So when I saw this mail in the inbox, asking me to share my day as a blogger with her readers, I was quite confused. What is my day like? I mean, most of the people who ‘really’ know me know that I am one horribly unorganized woman (yes, I used that word!) who is medically-crazy (that is not a word, I invented it btw), who has no scope of improvement, and who keeps reading and writing like there is no tomorrow (I totally believe in that, there is never enough reading and writing that one can do, that ‘one’ being me).
So before you really start to wonder what I am ranting about, I’m Debolina, or Debo or Deb if you may, and I, along with a lot of other things, am a blogger too. I’ve been blogging for some time now (a long long time actually, which means I’m sort of an oldie!! horror!!), and if you haven’t come across any of my blogs yet, I have a book blog, a parenting blog, a beauty wellness style and product blog, as well as a day-to- day things and thoughts blog.
Life is busy and really rushed. My lovely and fully charged daughters always keep me on my toes, and my many professional commitments along with freelance assignments ensure there is never a lazy or free moment in my day. But then again, I do manage to sneak out my crazy bits from here and there. If you’re wondering how a typical day in my life is, here’s a peek:
My day begins early (toooo early for me if you go by my body clock time!) by 6am, when I wake up and walk around the house like a zombie, getting the kids ready and off to school. Of course once the house is empty, I need a big mug of strong ginger tea to help me wake up properly! And that is also when I get my dose on all the news and things happening around, as well as make my plans for the day, including jotting down blogging ideas and what all I need to catch up on.
Most of my professional work happens from my work desk at home, as I am the primary carer for my kids. So it is important that I really plan my day properly. I first get all my work commitments prioritized, and then, based on how much free time I think I will have in the day, I make a plan for my blogs. My blogs are an extension of my thoughts and such, including what I have to say about certain situations, products, things, and a lot of such topics that are close to me and are a part of my experience too. I don’t blog every day, as honestly, I don’t have that much time on hand. But I try to plan as much as I can, by at least jotting down more ideas.
After an hour or so I sometimes do a bit of exercise, or end up watching some videos on YouTube. Then its time to get ready for the day, wearing something nice that will cheer me up and adding a dash of my favorite lip color, as well as a fragrance that will uplift my mood (being vain, I believe a fun lip color can do wonders to the ‘grey’). After gobbling something healthy to eat, it’s time to really get started.
I mostly work without a break till about noon, when the younger one comes home, and then it’s all about running after her and doing the regular mommy things. Soon the elder one is back too, and after making sure that both the kids are comfortable (and not trying to kill each other again), I resume work.
Then it’s a pretty much stretch of work till early evening. Work commitments for the day being over, I check my blogging plans and see if I have to do any clicks or if there are any brand reviews that I have to complete. If yes, I do some shoots and upload them on my computer, to be edited and used later.
Evenings are spent going out for fun mostly, and once it’s night, after a light dinner I head for my speed walk with blaring music in my ears. I almost always get my best blogging ideas at night (the pros of being an insomniac), and jot them down furiously. I try to do my stories for the blog then, as the house is quiet with everyone sleeping. Once all is done, I head out to YouTube land again and spend massive hours there, till it’s almost 3 at night and I know I’m dead again!
Lets catch up with Deb to read her Stories. Oh! I didn’t tell you- She writes for First Cry too. Do check out her Parenting articles there.
