I'm Feeling Overwhelmed.

After finishing the big AZ challenge on two blogs, I took Sunday off from blogging except for a short blog on BlogJob. Yesterday I tried to edit a major article on one of my own sites and had a bunch of technical problems I wrote about in an earlier discussion. Then I looked around at the Google Webmaster Tools (or whatever they called it now) and uncovered errors I have no idea how to solve. Checked my stats. Verified another version of a site name. All the kind of stuff I hate to do. I was going to publicize the updated blog when I discovered I couldn't open it. Something about not being able to connect to the database. ARRH! I decided to go shop for groceries. When I came back it worked again. Still not sure how to edit my structured data markup. I didn't know it existed until Google told me I had errors in it. I have no idea how to fix them. Meanwhile, I have blogs to write, hubs to move to new homes on my sites, and some occasional eating and sleeping to do. I am definitely overextended right now. Is anything overwhelming you right now?

This sounds pretty horrendous. I don't like to tell you how easy my life is at the moment!

I'm happy for you. I'm going to bed and when I wake up tomorrow everything will be better. Right?

@bagarad Hopefully that will prove true in this case and every one to follow. :)

Just reading your post overwhelmed me! I've never written my own blogs or developed a site yet and all the other stuff you mentioned. I'm liking the simplicity of myLot for now. I also have a small antiques business that keeps me fairly busy. Sometimes just life in general overwhelms me so don't feel alone!

I think the internet itself, while offering many opportunities we didn't have in the eighties and before, has made mental overload much easier. There are endless things to do which did not even exist as tasks before.

Sometimes you just can't do it all in one day, and if you try you may get too tired to do it quickly and correctly. When I started getting a headache last night I just went to bed. Everything looks so much better today when I'm not so tired.

@bagarad That's the right thing to do , you rest so you can be reinvigorated and be able to think well again .

I think writing the A to Z challenges is really challenging. I understand the frustration for those technical issues, sometimes it just happens. Hope it'll be fixed very soon. I am currently rushing for a software project, and targeting to finish it by the end of this month, before I deliver my baby. I am also trying to meet my daily limit in BlogJob, but I don't push myself too hard on that. I am supposed to prepare homeschooling lessons for my son, but I really can't find time to do so, glad that he is a self learner, and he always learn and practice on his own. I also need to clean and organize my home, and also prepare for my baby before he arrives, but I haven't do so. I am trying to take all these easily, so I can work on them peacefully and joyfully. Mylotting is a good way to make me relax.

You have your plate full. I went through a period while homeschooling when circumstances prevented us from getting all our lessons done in certain subjects. I thought the yearly achievement test scores would be terrible, but the kids had come up another grade level in everything anyway. No one was more surprised than I. When you homeschool, there is a lot more interaction between you and your children than children in schools often have with their parents. Just reading to your children and having lots of ordinary conversations with them improve their language and vocabulary skills. Verbal interaction with adults is a big plus in learning language.
