For the last few months I’ve visited hundreds of blogs, read hundreds of posts on how to be a successful blogger. I’ve been doing it for slightly over a month now, and I do find it to be very challenging to post regularly and as often as I would like to. It is hard for me to squeeze some time for blogging into my busy schedule of working full time, freelancing and taking care of my family, I’m not even talking about having some social time with friends.

So my question to all successful bloggers out there is: Do you blog full time?
And I’d also like to know from other bloggers (who’s blogs don’t quite rank top 1000) – is it possible to have a successful, or even a semi-successful, blog for someone who blogs only part-time?

I’m pretty sure that bloggers like Darren Rowse, Brian Clark, Steve Pavlina and Seth Godin blog full time, or at least they have lots of time left to spend on blogging. They all post lots of useful tips for bloggers, but I didn’t find any articles on how to find time for blogging if there are only 24 hours in a day, and all of them are pretty much taken?

I hope the answer won’t be – don’t blog if you have no time. Because I do find blogging interesting and this is something that I want to pursue as well. So, if someone has any tips, comments, suggestions, I’m all ears.
