Total Social – My 9 to 5 Link Up!
I have been excited for today's link up, long before Total Social was started. I knew I wanted to have a link up about people's work days. It's amazing to me that people can work, have kids, have a life, yet still blog.
I'm curious (see also: nosy) about how others balance it all. I am also fascinated by people's career paths, as I'm still figuring mine out.
In case you're new here then today's link up is called “Total Social” because you can participate whether you blog or not. All you have to do is use the hashtag: #9to5TotalSocial. You can use this on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and of course your blog post. Sarah and I wanted a way for everyone to be included. So tell us what YOUR 9 to 5 is and grab a button below for your blog post.
If you missed the first Total Social check it out to get ideas!
My 9 to 5 is a little bit different. And sometimes, mine lasts until 6, 7, or even 8pm. I work in Social Media and Marketing for a small company here in Dallas. While the company is in Dallas I work part time from home. Which I adore. I feel more productive at home. Plus the pups are nearby.
A typical day for me looks like this:
-Update Twitter/Facebook/Instagram etc
-Come up with new ideas and promotions
-Respond to on social media
-Design new idea/promotion and pitch it
Then I might go to an event and take photos, taste the food and mingle with the staff and guests. A lot of my time is spent at Klyde Warren Park, in Dallas.
I know you can see my phone on the right, but I still love this picture of the park! It's a nice splash of green amongst a bunch of buildings.
So what's your 9 to 5? It can be your job, an idea of what you do day to day, the number of times you clean up after kids- whatever!
