1. good morning, see I read your blog every morning at 5…so I thought I would say good morning! Ok, now I have to get out there with my Ipod and run my 6 miles. Have a great day!

  2. Thank you for this post! I am still learning about blogging so I found it very helpful. As far as balancing my thang, I usually spend time in the evenings after the kids go to bed – which isn't long at all. I also try to use my lunch time at work. I guess right now my thang would be writing blogs, reading (I love to read!) and searching/planning for the women's ministries at church. I do have a scrapbook that I have been working on for ages and it still is not done. LOL!

    Thanks again Sandy! I look forward to hearing a continuation of this topic. Blessings to you and your family!

  3. When I first started blogging I was so excited about it and all the friends I was meeting that I was spending all my time blogging. I had to balance my time as well. Have a great day.

  4. Thanks for the tips! My very basic blogging is a hobby/foray into techno world. My true fun/passion is baking, decorating. (which is alot of what my blog is trying to be about:) I can SO relate to having the kids attack like vultures whenever I just get my hands into flour or eggs. (the snack and wipe bottom comment almost had me in tears!) Thanks for your ministry, your prayers and your committment – they mean so much!!
    P.S. If you lived closer I would bake you something as a thank-you. And then we could go run it off together 🙂

  5. Right now my "thang" is getting outside to walk/run/bike as much as possible.
    I'll post your "speaking" on FB. I have a friend who lives in Louisvlle.

  6. My music stuff gets squeezed around all the other commitments. But if I'm arranging or working on a creative project I'll often start after everyone goes to bed so that I have zero interruptions. Although I'm always sure to read/listen to it with fresh eyes in the morning. Sometimes the ideas are a little too creative at 3AM!

    Going off on a different direction … I hate it when people, especially other WOMEN, don't take non-traditional work/career pursuits seriously. Eventually the quality of work stands for itself. Yours does Sandy.

  7. I write EARLY in the morning also, usually after my study/prayer time. Seems to be when the ideas flow the best.

    As for balance on the blogging, I am not there yet. I need to be more disciplined about posting on a regular basis, and reading and commenting on others' blogs. But I know that I will sit there for hours if I try now. So I am definitely in a season of visiting my favorites and only posting occasionally on my own.

  8. i always have a typo… cant even stand to go back and reread my stuff because i hate typos!!

    you and your bloggy routine rock by the way. I have tried it all. Up at 4:30 AM to write, staying up until 2 AM to write, naptime, tv time, etc. etc. etc. I think the key is listening to God and being flexible while being disciplined… the more i type the less sense i make but you get that, right?

  9. Marlece: (yawn) good morning, friend. You must be in a different time zone, so technically, you get to sleep later than me.

    Donna: Your comments are so encouraging to me. Thanks for always stopping by! And I BOUGHT scrapbooking stuff to do ONE scrapbook THREE years ago, and it's still in the bag in our storage closet. Nice.

    Michelle!!! I miss you!!!

    OK, Mindy: We must find a way to work out this baking/running plan of yours. I think I'm in love with you.

    Melanie: So proud of you with the outside exercise. Yes, that's one of my thangs too. And thanks so much for posting my info on FB. There were some peeps there that I didn't know, but no one approached me as your friend. I would love to know one of your friends!

    Terri: I would love to hear one of your 3am creations. I bet its sort of like Queen meets Chris Tomlin. And your compliment at the end got me all choked up. I love our revived friendship. 🙂

    Lindsey: So how early is early for you? Just curious. Sometimes I wonder if I have to give up sleep altogether to do everything before anyone gets up. sigh….

    Lisa: I totally get you, girl. No worries. If I ever see a typo on your blog, I'll let you know. It's the blogging equivalent of telling your girlfriend she has lipstick on her teeth. 🙂

    Love all of you!!!

  10. Generally from 5a-7a. Yikes. Just typing that makes me realize how early that is! 🙂

    But I also try and take a nap before I get my kids from school–so that helps a lot with getting up so early and still being rested.

  11. Hi Sandy!

    I'm always so impressed by your posts…your thoughts…your words. You are a pro at this whole blogging thing. As a reader….thank you for putting so much effort and work and love into each and every post. It pays off – your blog is excellent. I've been encouraged, lifted up, motivated, brought to my knees, enlightened, and strengthened – so many times – right here at God Speaks Today!

    Thank you!

    And the whole thing about having someone ask you for a snack – or having someones bottom to clean – as soon as you sit down in the computer chair….yes….yes….me too. Weird how that always happens!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Love to you,
    Kate 🙂
