I currently have TWO jobs and I am also working on a Master's Degree, so I have almost no time to blog. I could work on my blog through the night, but I would never get any rest. How often do you blog and how do you balance your life and blogging? I woud really like to blog more and promote my passion, but sometimes it is too much for me to handle.
I think that writing and energy comes in waves - some times you can't sleep and you write 5 great posts/articles in a very short time. Sometimes you're too tired to write a word. I take advantage of those good writing days/nights, but staggering them out once a week (hey, worse comes to worst, I can have one blog post published a week...)
A few people have already mentioned scheduled posts, so that's what I would go with.
If it's too much? Don't push it. People will be able to tell, and you'll be ashamed of your writing.
One thing that I did that was helpful when I started my blog was to write down a list of books that I'd read recently that I could do blog posts about, and a brief outline of what I'd say in each. On days where I haven't gotten anything new read or when I don't have much time, I go to the list.
I lead the busy life also, so I'm afraid my blog also often takes the backseat. However, it's something I love doing, plus I know the importance of regular blogging, so I try to post at least once a week. I've pretty much made that a goal and have been able to meet it every week. I think anything more than that would overwhelm me and take away the enjoyment of blogging.
