This post is probably going to be short because as usual I am crazy busy. People often ask me how I like being retired. Well, yes, I retired from teaching, but I definitely didn’t retire from everything else. I have 2 blogs, this one and Grey is the New Black. Those of you that blog, know how time consuming blogging really is. It’s not just the blogging, it’s all the social media that goes along with it. I actually get up at 6 am Mon-Fri and spend the first hour or so just on social media. I yum, stumble, tweet, pin, and flip all my posts from this blog and Grey is the New Black.
I also have a photography business, Pamela Greer Photography. I have already done 40 sessions this year. I try to limit myself to one session a week because of all the blogging. I am already booked every single weekend in October, and I have one weekend left in September and one weekend left in November. Which means that after August, I will not have a weekend off until almost Christmas. It’s not just the time for the sessions, it’s the time editing all the photos.
And as if all that wasn’t enough, I am opening up an Etsy shop. I easily have enough stuff to sell full time on Etsy. I used to sell on Ebay many years ago and I still have lots vintage fabric and vintage sewing notions. I have vintage clothing, purses and tub after tub of vintage linens. Right now I’m just trying to wrap my head around the details of it, the shipping, the accounting. So, that will be even more photos to edit!
Every single thing I am doing could easily be a full time job – the blogging, the photography and now the Etsy. Sometimes I feel like I am spreading myself to thin and ending up being a master of nothing.
Somehow though there is still time to take a tiny break and sit on the porch and let Coco help me chill out. Thanks for letting me vent about my crazy schedule.
