I realized today that I'm addicted to blogs, both writing them and reading them. If I go a few days without posting something on my blog, I get antsy, thinking: "There must be something I can post about. What's going on in my life? What jokes have I heard? What are other people blogging about?" And then I think of something to write about and stick it out there for the "entertainment" of those of you who are reading this. Really, it's all about what's entertaining me, but I appreciate you reading it so I have an excuse to keep posting more. =)
And reading blogs... definitely addicted to that. When I started reading blogs, I was really just checking in on Mandy's every couple of months. Then I started looking at blogs by Melissa H. and Rosa and Melissa S. Then I discovered that all of these blogs had links to other interesting blogs. So I started following some of them. And I discovered some other blogs out there (usually by complete strangers) that are fun to read or have good ideas so I had to follow them, too.
So what made me suddenly realize that I was a blog addict was that I was adding a new blog to my reader (so I can be alerted when something new is posted - heaven forbid I should miss something new!) and I realized how many I am following. I've gone from a year ago when I just looked at one once in a while to now that I have 22 blogs that I check up on every day... plus several others that I just check in on from time to time. It's no wonder that I never have time to actually eat during my lunch break - that time is reserved for blogs!
Is there a 12-Step Program for Blog-aholics? Maybe I could create a blog about that...
