How much is too much?

How much TIME is to much when it comes to blogging?  I have been thinking about this a lot lately. Am I spending to much time in blogger land?  I really enjoy looking at new blogs, entering giveaways, and writing my own posts.  But at what cost?  Am I ignoring my children and hubby?

Here's the thing though- it's the only thing I do outside of taking care of the kids, homeschooling, laundry, dinner, cleaning- you get the idea!  Right now this is my only "me" time.  I rarely watch T.V. anymore, I haven't scrap booked in ages (about 2 kids ago).  Is it "wrong" to have a "me" time activity?

I used to only blog during nap time and after the kids went to bed.  Then with the move, we are still living with my parents, though that is soon about to change- we are renting a 2 bedroom condo soon (more on that later), my schedule has been a bit more relaxed, so I have a little bit of extra time, and blogging has become addictive. I try to have my reviews and posts done in advance, and I do not post on weekends, but still I wonder am I spending too much time blogging?
My question to you is: How much time do you spend blogging?  Do you have a schedule?  Any ideas, or advice?

Its Friday Follow...everyone Follow a new blog. I will be watching your comments to see if anyone has some good suggestions regarding your post. I spend WAY to much time on the computer..the Google Reader really helped to reduce some of that...moreover its just setting limits.

I've had the same thoughts lately. It's hard to get up and walk away sometimes! I've not posted much this week, it's just been busy!

I always wonder the same thing. But I don't do anything else for me. Like ever. I don't think you post too much at all :) Keep doing what makes you happy--and if the kids are happy you are doing the right thing.

Time management is tough for any activity be it exercising, a bible study, a job, a nice long shower, or blogging. Anything that takes us away from the family comes with a certain amount of guilt. With my blogging time, I make sure that I'm doing it alongside my kiddos or when they have some down time. And I limit myself to an hour (not all at once) in the morning and one in the evening.

Visiting from SITS! Have a great weekend!

I try to have a plan before hand. As in, I know what reviews need to written, about how long I will enter GA and read blogs. I do the most important things first and with whatever time I have left, I do the other things. My husband helps with the kids while I do this.I dont feel bad at all because its my free time.

I'm addicted too. I try to do it when my daughter is napping, but have found myself sneaking into my office when she's watching Dora or something to check blogs or e mails to see if I won a giveaway. I so need a laptop. haha.
