Honestly, I am not going to lie; running a blog as a medical student is challenging and can be a juggling act which is hard to balance. Blogging is arduous and can seem to be like a job at times.  There are days you know the week is going to be a long one, one is out of content, tired and just needs a movie to watch but you just need to be consistent in order to show you are serious with what you are doing.  Asides thinking of and writing content for my blog, I have to be active on social media, plan for my photoshoot, and plan my outfits for the month because I shoot in bulk for both Stylevitae and my blog (victoryhazelle.com).

“How do you do it? I need tips, please!!!”  Is the question I have been getting of late.
I started my blog in my 4th year on April 15, 2018, and I have certainly spent hours working on my blog on my way to class, during class or lectures in order not to build-up work.

Though, in the process, I have noted some handy ways of maintaining a balance between blogging and medical school. And I wanted to share my tips with those who may be struggling.

PLAN AHEAD: blogging is important but school is more important. I still love the old ways of a book and pen, I jot my ideas down, plan shoot day and days to try on outfits to shoot.

WRITE IT AS IT COMES: immediately an idea pops up, be it a topic or outfit idea, I write mine on my phone or note. I don’t condole weekend write-ups if that’s the scheduled day for posting because I know I won’t be able to remember when the weekend comes. Weekends are for finishing touches.

BREAK IT BY SCHEDULING: if you post once in two weeks, schedule a day for editing pictures, another for a write-up or feeding your blogging spirit by reading other blogs. I have my to-do list where I also schedule days to post on my Instagram.

CONNECT WITH OTHER STUDENT BLOGGERS: you can relate with them by reading their blogs; ask questions, get acquainted.

FREQUENTLY BRAINSTORMING: sometimes, during the weeks I don’t post I go through websites like whowhatwear or blogs and then keep a list of idea on your phone or note, that way if I do feel stuck, I’ll have ideas to turn to.

ASK FOR HELP: from friends, roommates; they understand it’s a struggle. You can’t do it all; if you need any assistance in a photoshoot you can ask your friends to go along with you.

And for those who are thinking of starting a blog, you might be emphasizing on how you could possibly do it all. It can be challenging sometimes. Remember: don’t compare yourself to anyone, you are going to do a good job and it’s a process, you find out more along the process.

Disclaimer: I haven’t yet mastered the art of prepping for some posts ahead. Yes I am guilty of late preps.
