Doing It All
As a blogger who has chosen to keep my “day job”, my schedule is nothing but simple. As a wife, puppy-mom, tech professional, and of course blogger – I am constantly multitasking and trying to cross as many things off my list as possible in a day.
Every so often I run into someone who says, “How do you do it all?!” Little do they know, that none of us are holding it all together. I just do the best that I can today, then go to bed and do it all again tomorrow – just a little bit better. But you can always get help! I arm myself with the best tools in the business to keep my professional and my side hustle afloat. Today I wanted to share a little about the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, that’s loaded with tons of amazing features to help you up your productivity and get more done!
Day in the life of a part-time blogger with a full-time job
7:00 AM – Wake up & kiss my husband good morning, brush my teeth, wash my face, and let my puppy, Theo, out into my backyard and run around with him a little
7:15 AM – I pull out my phone to respond to social media & blog comments (easy with the multitasking feature on the Samsung GN8) and put tea on the kettle for my morning chai.
7:30 – 8:30 AM – Get in the shower and I listen to Spotify’s top hits on my phone. Every morning when I do my hair & makeup I play one episode of my favorite sitcom, Friends, HIMYM, Mindy, etc and that’s my timer to get ready.
9:00 AM – 5:30 PM – Kick ass at my day job as a Product Manager at Turner Entertainment. I use my phone to set reminders for deadlines, sign contracts with the “S” pen, and keep me on time for all of my meetings.
Note: My lunch break consists of going home to let Theo out or joining my coworkers for a midday workout
6:00 PM – Let Theo out, give him dinner, and edit photos for my tomorrow’s blog post
7:00 – 9:00 PM – Hang out with my husband. By that, I mean that we are both on Classpass and we go to a spin, barre, or Megareformer class almost every day.
9:30 PM – 10:30 PM – Make dinner & clean up the kitchen – usually some type of grilled chicken & salad. If I have a big deadline, we will pick up Chipotle so that I can get home and get to work sooner.
10:30 PM – 10:45 PM – Shower after class! Classpass is no joke!
10:45 PM – 11:00 PM – Post an Instagram photo! Nothing says Instagram-friendly like having an “S” Pen and the ability to launch two apps at once. I’m constantly writing over my Insta-stories and my finger just isn’t cutting it anymore! The “S” pen is a lifesaver! With multitasking, I can see my photo in my feed with Planoly and link to the items with RewardStyle so that when my photo posts, you guys can shop the look and it’s cohesive with my feed – win/win!
11:00 PM – 1:00 AM – Write copy for tomorrow’s blog post, respond to blog emails, prepare the post with SEO tags, categories, spelling/grammar check, linking to items in the post, updating my editorial calendar, scheduling posts on Facebook, Twitter & Pinterest.
I can’t be a blogger and not mention the camera. I made the shift to “DSLR-only” photos on my blog and Instagram a few years ago, but recently I experimented with a few phone pictures and you guys loved them. I’m more open to posting phone photos these days and it helps that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has an incredible phone. It even comes with a selfie button on the back of the phone a dual rear camera, and 2x zoom.
Win it now!
I spent the last few days with the newly released Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and it definitely lives up to the hype. I love how it helps me keep my life organized. You can see what others are saying about the phone at the social hub or just pick up one for yourself at your local Target.
I hope you love this phone as much as I do, here’s your chance to try to win it! Enter below!
