Hi, my name is Maggie and lately I have been a workaholic. You see, most of you probably think that isn’t possible when I webcam a few hours per day and have tons of time to myself. Well, that is not the case. Being Maggie Green is very much a full time job. First, there’s the emails. Work related and fan emails. Then, social media. I spend a huge part of my time on Twitter, Tumblr, Vine, FreeOnes forums, just to name a few. I am always interacting with fans and promoting myself on Twitter and all these other places. Then there’s webcamming. It takes me some time to get ready and do my make up and hair, clean my toys, pick out what I am going to wear that day. I truly enjoy webcamming but you have to understand it’s not always easy, I have to put up with annoying comments and trolls and people begging to see everything for free. And some days it’s slow, you can never be certain how much money you will make. That can be a bit stressful. Then there’s my website. I edit all of my own content which is very time consuming. Yes, I could hire someone to do it for me but I want it done that way I want it done so I just find it easier to do it all myself. And I have a hard time paying someone to do something for me that I can do myself, that’s just how I am. Then there’s my auctions on abibids.com. I have to track down payments from the winners and get things sent out. Sometimes people never respond to my emails or pay for what they’ve won so then I have to send emails to the auction site to ban that person and give me a refund ( they take a percentage of what you sell the item for). Then there’s custom videos…I shoot these occasionally and have to upload the footage, edit them and send them out to customers. Then there’s photo shoots and traveling. This takes a ton of preparation before I even leave…booking flights, hotels, car rental, shopping for wardrobe, confirming my schedule with my agent. Not to mention the actual shoots themselves, sometimes I am on set for 8-10 hours per day.
So you see? It’s a busy life. And I wouldn’t have it any other way, I LOVE what I do and I feel very lucky to be able to do it. But everyone needs a break and needs down time in the life. I am making a conscious effort to give myself some down time, when I find myself with a break in my schedule I hop on the computer and do one of the things I talked about above. I need some Maggie time in my life! I get some when I work out but I need to take an afternoon here and there and do something just for me. I need to take evenings off of Twitter every now and then. Or have lunch with a friend. And by putting this out there, I am hoping that I will actually do it!
Next week I am taking a long weekend to go to a wedding so that will be a good start for me! Here are some pics from the website, I hope you enjoy them and enjoy the weekend as well!
