Social Media: A rant of sorts

So I’ve been sitting here on and off for most of the day trying to figure out a social media schedule for the shop’s Facebook/Instagram/Twitter/YouTube, as well as this blog.

This is on top of planning out posts for said blog, as well as upcoming products. I also still have a house to clean and a toddler to look after.

I’ve done the research for optimum posting times for the various sites, watched an umpteenth amount of Skill Share and YouTube videos about planning a social media campaign and I’ve come to this conclusion:

If you can afford to let someone else do your social media for you, absolutely let them.

I’m trying to juggle so many things right now that I honestly have days were I feel like I’m burning out. I still have a crochet stitch sampler swatch video to record (I’m going on almost a month now where I really should have recorded, edited, and posted it, by now). The problem with the recording is that every time I have time to do it, it’s either 11 pm at night and I’m thoroughly exhausted or it’s daylight and my kid is refusing to nap and screaming bloody murder because I left the room.

Eventually I will find a happy medium between the shop, the social media world, raising a toddler who really is to smart of his own good, and not burning myself out. I just hope it’s soon.
