Today in my series, I am glad to introduce a Veteran blogger who has been around since 2004.

She is a voracious reader, e-book author, devoted coffee-drinker, avid thinker and a fashion lover who has a huge collection of bags. Music is her passion and you can find her writing most of the time. She is extremely friendly, helpful and a happy person.

Face behind the Blog

She accepts bouquets and brickbats on her writings. She blogs at Novemberschild.com and can be connected on Twitter @romspeaks.

Her Blogging routine in her own words-

When it comes to blogging, there are no two schedules that are identical.

Everyone seems to have long to-do lists, a million different things to do.  Blogging has been a life changing experience for me and it has given me a lot of flexibility in regards to my schedule.  While I think the world might be a better place if I didn’t have to work, I am not working full time these days just isn’t reality.

The fact is: I work plenty and sometimes my work doesn’t allow me to leave my house for several days at a time. While I admit that everyone dreams of the freedom that their blog can give them, I know a lot of people having more freedom than I have.

Here is the reality of what my typical day is like:

7:00am – Alarm goes off. I debate whether or not to go back to sleep.

7:15am – I begin my day by checking emails in bed. I don’t actually respond to these emails just yet, but I like see what has happened overnight and what is on the books for the day and the notifications on Twitter/Instagram.

7:45am – It’s that time. I drag myself out of bed, I wash and fresh up and have my milk and read newspapers.

8:15am – I walk into the kitchen to prepare breakfast for parents and me and clean the kitchen and do the laundry.

9am – Breakfast and laundry is done.

9.30am to 12pm – I come online, read blogs, reply emails, write blogs and chat with friends and people around on social media.

12pm to 2pm– I help mom to make lunch and take a break.  I have to do something to force myself to stop working. It’s not so much that I love my job as that the work never seems to end.

2:30pm to 4pm – sometimes I nap or else I come back online to write.

4pm to 5pm – If I had a nap, I wake up, fresh up and work on my 3 upcoming books.  I have my evening coffee.

5pm to 6pm – I exercise. I go for a walk or jog.

6pm to 6:30pm – Take some rest at home, have lime juice and change to fresh up.

7:45pm – I make dinner with Mom and setup the table.

8:30pm -10:30pm- Watch TV, eat dinner and blog. If my workload is light, I’ll play around online, the twitter chats

10:30pm– Plan my to-do list for the next day. I always feel more productive when I have a list.

11-11:30pm – Read for some time and Lights out! Because it starts all over tomorrow.


PS: Well, this is how my typical day goes if I don’t have any work outside – like bank, movies, shopping, catching up with friends and family on social dos.

Hope you enjoyed reading it. If you have any questions for this Veteran Blogger aka Romilaa- You are most welcome.

    I know her for the past one and a half decade. And this routine has almost not changed. She is very meticulous and lives by her calendar. The most amazing personality. I have always wondered how can she take time to help others yet there she is helping others and many a times me too.She is the most cheerful personality you will meet in your life and yes she is also very pushy (wink wink). In short an amazing personality.
