Working with No Work {The Ordinary Moments}

Welcome back to another week of the Ordinary Moments. If you haven’t joined in before this is a weekly linky that launches every Sunday morning and is open until midnight on the following Saturday. It’s a linky that celebrates any ordinary moments in your life – or the not so ordinary some weeks too. Basically – anything goes. I’ll be sharing and commenting on the posts that are linked up during the week and there’s a badge at the bottom of the post if you’d like to add it to yours too.

It’s such a strange time at the moment, especially as I would usually be home anyway, having worked from home for a couple of years now.

I’m not working from home temporarily or furloughed, I’m trying to carry on as normal on a work front whilst staying at home and having the children here with me.

But, carrying on as normal with work isn’t as straightforward as it may sounds. Our industry is so quiet now – with many PR companies working from home and many brands holding fire on any advertising until the current uncertainty has eased a little.

So, I don’t have much work to be getting on with but I always feel like time is wasted if I don’t do anything at all with it. But, it probably comes as no surprise that I’m finding focusing on anything much at the moment quite hard work.

I’ve made a plan to work on SEO whilst actual paid work is quite, updating old posts, bulking out really short posts and adding internal links to my site. It’s all worthwhile and will help my blog in the long term whilst helping me feel like I’m being productive to some extent.

We’ve had two lovely weeks of Easter holidays and the children are back in ‘school mode’ tomorrow too. We’ll all be around the dining table, working side by side and I’m quite looking forward to getting a little bit of our routine back. How is your work/life balance at the moment?

The Ordinary Moments

If you have an ordinary moment this week, come and link up – I’m looking forward to reading the moments that you share and will comment and share them on Twitter through the course of the week. Thanks so much for taking part.

  1. I can imagine that is really difficult. Blogging has never been my job, but I love it & do feel for those that it is. You are doing such a great job of looking at other ways to improve while quiet. I’m sure things will pick up again soon. They have to. If I can ever help with anything I’m always here. You are doing great xx

  2. I’ve been offered a fair bit of work over the last few weeks but I just can’t seem to get motivated to do anything. I guess it’s a good job it’s not necessary income. I am actually looking forward to getting back into some routine again tomorrow. It feels weird saying that because I usually hate the kids going back to school. I also hated trying to keep them up to date with their work before the holiday, but hopefully I have a better plan this time.

  3. It’s such a hard time for so many people at the moment isn’t it – having less work or having to work while trying to do home learning/schooling with kids or whatever. Sounds like you’re keeping a really positive attitude – I’m sure the work will pick up again very soon x
