I'm also in desperate need of some advice. I'm having a difficult time balancing work, life, and blogging. I work a lot and do all the posts for the week on Sundays, but it's difficult to read blogs and respond to comments during the week. I felt like such a bad blogger Monday since I only commented on a couple of blogs. How do you guys balance everything? Do you respond to all comments? Let me know if you have any tips!!
