Summary: <br> <a href="http://declareconference.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/declarepodcastlogo.jpg"></a><br> Blogging. Podcasting. Social Media. Email.<br> All these tasks require time.<br> The tricky thing is my family also likes to be fed them, given clean clothes, taken to baseball practice and shown love &amp; attention.<br> As the school year ends it seems I’m supposed to be a 1,000 different places at once. AND I’m trying to get as much blogging/writing/podcasting done before kids are out of school.<br> But alas I only get 24 hours each day. All I really want to do is refresh my Instagram feed and watch funny <a title="skit guys" href="http://skitguys.com/" target="_blank">SkitGuy videos</a>. Not the most productive use of time.<br> So I’ve decided to seek the wisdom of one of our long-standing Declare Conference speakers, the super efficient, Kat Lee. <br> <a href="http://declareconference.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/katleedeclarepodcast.jpg"></a><br> Kat writes on two sites: <a title="how they blog" href="http://howtheyblog.com/" target="_blank">How They Blog</a> and<a title="inspired to action" href="http://inspiredtoaction.com" target="_blank"> Inspired to Action.</a> She also hosts podcasts for both sites (<a title="htb podcast" href="http://howtheyblog.com/thepodcast/" target="_blank">HTB</a> &amp;  <a title="ita podcast" href="http://inspiredtoaction.com/category/podcast/" target="_blank">ITA</a>).
