Day 7 in the #30dayblog challenge, and today’s task is to describe an average day in my work life.

So, um, here it goes!

I usually wake up around 7ish and check my emails and Twitter. Yeah, I’m one of those people that checks my phone before I do anything else. Even before I pee (TMI?)

Laptop on, kettle on, and I’ll spend 30 minutes or so checking through emails and checking Google Reader. Breakfast and a dog walk follow before I kickstart my blogging for the day.

I write for 3 or 4 blogs a day, writing 5 or 6 posts, plus dealing with several social media clients. I tend to give a social media tutorial once a week too, so every day is different.

Still with me? I feel like I should throw in some super-glamourous details. In fairness, on the days when I’m in London for press days, it’s a bit more exciting. Usually because there are fancy new products, great venues with tasty snacks and wine, and goody bags. I tend to have a day like that maybe once or twice a week. Those glam days stop me slipping into the tracksuit-wearing trap.

Aside from writing blog posts and carrying out social media tasks, I deal with a few email accounts, respond to PRs, call in products and check Google Analytics (somewhat obsessively). As I write for a beauty blog, there’s a certain amount of putting make up on, taking it off, putting it on, taking it off….

Inevitably, I’ll end up editing some HTML at some point, and trying out new social media resources.

And that’s pretty much it! A mixture of blogging, tweeting, reading, emailing, Facebooking and reviewing until around 6-7pm.


What’s your average day like?
