Balancing Blogging with School // Teen Blog Series


Hey guys!

Teen Bloggers Anouska Millar and Beth have decided to start a project called #TeenBlogSeries. Its aim is to bring together lots of the teens/young adults in the blogging community. For the next ten consecutive weeks, over 80 bloggers will be writing every Monday at 6:30pm about many different things, all beauty, lifestyle or fashion related. You can view everyones posts by going to the hashtag on twitter "TeenBlogSeries". If you would like to get involved email:

This week we're talking about juggling school and blogging. I must admit that I am pretty bad at this at times. Sometimes it is near impossible to manage all of the homework/coursework and find time to take blog photos, edit them and write the posts and still have a social life! It's hard work!

My blogs will probably take a back seat in the next 2 years as I will be focusing on my GCSE's - I have to put my full attention on them to do well. I'll always love blogging and will always come back, but for me, balancing blogging and school is pretty darn hard!

Some of the things I do to help save time are take loads of pictures all at once! This means that you have loads of posts photos taken all at the same time and don't have to take each posts photos individually. Also, take loads of photos, never take just one, 9 times out of 10 you won't like it. 

If you need to edit your photos, edit them all at the same time. This saves time. Upload your photos to the right posts at the same time. This helps me massively! I can take the photos, edit them and then upload them to the correct posts. I never have to worry about losing the photo as it's already on the post.

If school work takes over completely then think about getting some guest bloggers so that your blog still has some content on it, or if school work takes over write a post explaining why you might not be posting. Lots of bloggers have been there themselves so will probably understand how hard it is. I certainly do, I find it hard to balance projects, regular homework and blogging each week extremely hard work!

Lastly, holidays are great times to write blog posts. As I write this it's the 29th August. You have more time on your hands to get posts written and scheduled. Sometimes I aim to write a term's worth of posts in the holiday so it's like I have written a post each week. For example 7 week term, I write 7 posts in the holidays. Each week one of those posts is published. Then the next holiday comes around and you do the same. This means you can do your school work without having to worry about blogging. 

Those are my tips for balancing school and blogging, I should probably follow my own tips as, like I say, I am useless at this! 

What do you do to keep on top of blogging, school and life?
