Single Bloggers VS Married Bloggers

I read lots about time management and how bloggers should give time to family and this kind of topics most of you know and heard about!  I think I need a time management system to help me on something that I am not good at, I am still having horrible mistakes with it and I think it’s a very complicated math, maybe because I am staring new projects and I really need to work a lot! but who will give me excuses? who will forgive me?

My Blogs are eating my time and eating me before my time

This is the main problem of any blogger, planning posts, finding ideas, writing them down, publish posts, reply to comments, commenting on other blogs, and socialize with bloggers friends on different social networks and so on!

Lots of work to do here and there and the revenue is not enough to pay our bills sometimes, and this keeps you for longer time on your laptop working and trying and … ufff!

I was imagining how a single blogger feel and trying to compare this feelings with a married blogger feeling, specially when he don’t have his own office or he has to blog from a home office, so let’s see how both of them could look like, I am going to start with the married blogger:

Married Blogger

  • He don’t have too much freedom at home (unless he have a supportive wife like I do)
  • He usually carry his laptop allover the house trying to find a quite area
  • Sometimes look like stupid when family visit because he is blogging and can not stay with them!
  • He have to answer the same question thousands of times (What you are doing?!)
  • He have also to say these words more than once when it’s food time “OK! I am coming love”
  • He run to his wife to surprise her when he earn $10 from his blog! (and the amazing thing is she got excited and forgot he spend 100s of dollars LOL!)
  • Social Networking is his “Nightmare” as a door for jealousy
  • Well.. He have to hear some s**t from time to time!
  • Sometimes he lie about his blog traffic ;) naah Just kidding!

Single Blogger

Oh yeah! This is the lucky guys, yes we find someone who cares and make coffee for us, but some times we have to do it by our selves, but you have all the time to do what you want in this life and at least no body ask a singles blogger “how much you have earned today”!

I didn’t mention kids because I don’t have any yet! But it’s going to be more fun if I have LOL!

Maybe this comparing post is taking us to some red areas that we shouldn’t talk about or discuss, so I give you all the excuses if you don’t comment here, but I would love to hear some real stories from some brave married men, I am sure that you have some exiting ones so I want to know what’s happening with you guys!

Note: Content of this post is not a must to be part of my life or any blogger timeline life, maybe it’s not true at all, and I am not complaining or anything, it’s a post for fun! (just in case someone from the government passed from here LOL!)

I create websites with WordPress, and I develop Thesis Skins. I am a social network lover. I am also the night creature who works hard to keep this project up. Owner and founder of the Famous Blog.

    I’m in a long term relationship and work from home (blogs and other things) and my partner of 6 years says there are three people in our relationship “me him and the internet”.

    Just like you I have found working from home to be quite stressful as my entire income depends on what I get accomplished and not how many hours I put into it which leads to working all day & night and not having much time for my partner or friends.

    I have experienced both being a married blogger and a single blogger, ask me in what order lol. I guess both relationship statuses have their pros and cons. Happy blogging everyone!

    Well… I’m a married woman, with 3 kids, working as a senior copywriter in BBDO El Salvador, and let me say, last weekend my co-blogger and I wrote our 1000 post in a live presentation. Maybe ’cause my husband and kids are my first fans I feel free about the time I spend posting -most of the time after 9 or 10 pm-. I like your post!

    Being married is great but you have to make time for your spouce too! I have a habit of saying “I’m coming now” and then get caught up in something (like blog posting!) and then forget the time. My husband has to gently remind me that it’s already dark and dinner is getting cold! thank fullly no kiddies yet – bloggers who have kids as well deserve a medal – I really dont know where I would fit in that time.
    How about a post about Bloggers and having kids??? Would love to find out how people find the time – or if they are just living off 2 hours sleep a night…

    I am a married WOMEN blogger. If I were single I would be making a lot more money than what i currently am!!! But I am not wanting to get UNMARRIED! Thankfully my husband supports what I do… but finding time to blog effectively while being a full time housewife and mother is a job on its own. So you single folk out there – take advantage of those lonely moments and get stuck in with blogging. Make constructive use of your “free” time because it won’t be there forever.. unless you wake up when it’s still dark and blog – like i do!

    I’m a married blogger. It’s not bad as my husband works from home, therefore when I’m blogging he’s working in his office. We also have a social life making time for family, friends, our children and each other. Sometimes it is hard to find the time to do the things I need to online because of my social life.

    Laughing at the dinner comment as I have said be right there to hubby when I’m doing something on the pc.

      I think all bloggers said that before it before, and maybe they missed the hot food once or twice and this can lead to some crises LOL!

  • lawmacs January 28, 2010, 3:06 am

    Married men blogging i am one of them with three kids well only one of them lives with me the other two has grown up i have none of these issues although i worked full time blogging is my time for spending time with myself(instead of the pub) managing your time is easy if you stop to look at it make time for the wife/kids then the rest will fall in place get them to proof read for you this way they will fell involved and not ignored want to say hesham you had treaded on unwanted territory ha ha

      LOL! I thought it’s a way to introduce yourself “hello guys.. I am a single blogger”, you know it sound like “I am a single dad” –> single bloggers –> single what ever!

      Glad to see your comment Cristi have fun my friend!

  • Michael Aulia January 28, 2010, 1:27 am

    I’m still single so yeah, I can have all the time I need, which is a good thing at this stage. I guess when I get married and have kids, I probably have to leave my “blogging career”…we’ll see

  • Keith January 28, 2010, 12:53 am

    I am currently single so I have much more freedom, but I wasn’t when I first started blogging and it was difficult to explain what I was doing.

    One thing is for certain though, I may be harder on myself than a wife would have been… LOL

    • Hesham January 28, 2010, 2:28 am

      Yes.. I know it’s so difficult to explain, specially when you use the SEO, PHP and machine language ;)

  • Dana January 28, 2010, 12:11 am

    I am a singgle blogger but is not as free as in your article because i am still in my woring days. But — yeah, fulltime singgle blogger surely have more time if compare to other bloggers.

    Well, I’m not a married male blogger, but I found myself laughing about some of the things on that list. My husband is very supportive and proud of my blogging, but there are sometimes that I get a little too involved and he has to call out the “food’s ready” a few times before I get off the laptop. And I have been known to sneak off during family gatherings, phone in pocket, just to check my email / Twitter. Probably the funniest one was when we had friends over and I saw an email about a new SEO contest. While everyone was hanging out I grabbed my laptop, ran into the bedroom, and registered a domain for it, then went back to hanging out with everyone. Ah, the life of a blogger. :)

      AdSense advertising seems to understand this post, it say “We understand. Get immediate help for your emotions”!
      I wonder if this ad target bloggers or people who are married with bloggers LOL!
