Do you ever feel like you never have enough time in a day to do all the things you want to do?

I’ve been feeling like that of late. I recently had a baby and time is something that I don’t have a lot of nowadays. The laundry piles up, the sink gets full of dishes and emails go unanswered for a few days. (All pretty unusual things if you know me.)

The funny thing is, I was warned that finding time to do the things I normally do would be tough once a baby enters the picture. And although I knew this would happen, part of me thought I’d be able to handle it all. After all, I am a pretty organized person; I could handle a baby on top of everything else I do! Right?

Well, not quite.

Being an organized person has made a huge difference in my ability to handle things at this stage in my life. Put simply, if I wasn’t organized life would be much more chaotic for me. But that being said, having people (i.e. a support group or team) to help out on occasion also makes a huge difference. A husband, a mother, a mother-in-law, a best friend—all crucial people in my life right now. People who bring me delicious food, pitch in around the house, lend an ear when I need to talk or just give me a break when I need one.

Similarly at The Local Biz Magazine, having a great team to work with is crucial to me as an editor, as well as to the success of this magazine / website. This is why I am pleased to announce the addition of five new members to our blogger family. You’ve already met two of them—Connie (personal development) and Manchari (fitness / health), and in the weeks to come you’ll meet three more, Sean (sports), Ashley (parenting) and Rhian (travel). They have a lot of great insight to offer you in their respective areas and I hope you’ll join me in following them on their blogging journey.

Now if you excuse me, I have to end my post here. …I’ve got 6 unread emails in my inbox to tend to, and a hungry baby!
