In the meantime, I thought I would answer a question that many SLP bloggers get. How do you find the time?
Obviously, every bloggers situation is different. I have one job from 7:15-3:30 (usually 4/4:30) during the school year and no children/husband. My biggest commitment at the moment is my cat. I'm also living with family so I can save up money to buy a house. So really....I have about the same amount of free time that I had in college. My thrift shopping takes up a chunk of that time, but I have the nights to relax or make materials. (I learned the hard way that bringing home paperwork stresses me out.)
Making materials takes a varied amount of time. I may make something on the computer in one night or it could take me three weeks. Motivation is the key. My craft projects usually take an hour, but some take more like the pronoun notebooks. It's something that I really love doing. I've always enjoyed artsy things like singing and drawing. (Please note, creativity is not a requirement for this field any more than having a super bubbly personality. You just need to enjoy learning and working with people.)
As far as actually writing posts, I don't have a schedule set in stone for my blog. I write it as I have time. My first priority is getting stuff done for my job and students.
In other news, here are two of my thrifty finds for this week.....
Bug Trails by Thinkfun for $2 at my local Christian thrift store. It was practically brand new too. You can read a blog review here.
Don't Rock the Boat by Patch Products at the same store for $3 brand new. I plan on using both games for reinforcement.
