The Blog-a-holic

I know I’ve become addicted to blogging when:

-I take a picture SPECIFICALLY for the purpose of putting it on my blog

-I start a story and I’m stopped with “I know, I read your blog”

-My colleges at work tell me they now know A LOT more about me now

-I haven’t said more than two sentences to my husband on my day off because I’m catching up on my blog writing

-I’m excited to have an iPhone so I don’t have to lug my whole computer into the bathroom with me while I Twitter.

-I still lug the whole computer into the bathroom with me when I’m on a good writing high.

-My dog cries and tries to jump on my lap, but he’s been replaced by my laptop

-I’m trying to figure out how I can save $400 FAST so I can go to BlogHer

-I hear the word feed and don’t relate it to food

-I’m staying up late to be one of the first to check in for Roll Call at SITS

-I feel guilty that I actually have to go to WORK and I can’t stay at home and catch up with all my blog friends’ blogs and leave comments.

-I get anxious and feel bad when I haven’t posted in a WHOLE 24 hours!

-I wonder if anyone else has noticed that I haven’t posted in 24 hours

-When I feel SO good because I have the whole weeks worth of posts scheduled to publish

-I get slightly depressed when that scheduled list shrinks down to 0

-I start cheering and running around the house when I see I have a new follower

-I start to cry when I see I’ve lost 10 followers in one day (only to find out that it was a blogger glitch later… Good news, it’s not cause I’m boring!)

-I try to tell my husband about a post I’m working on and when he looks at me strange I just tell him he just doesn’t understand

-I test out random marriage and parenthood questions on my husband anticipating using his answers as a topic for my blog

-I try to think of a way to incorporate the phrase “I have a blog” in my church talk and am disappointed when I can’t find a way to fit it in

-I’d much rather blog than sleep

-I’d much rather blog than eat

-After reading a great article in some parenting magazine or website, instead of thinking “wow, that will be great to remember for my family” I think “What a great topic for my blog!”

-I get excited every time I hear the tone telling me I have a new email message… Hoping and praying it’s a new comment on my blog

-Writing in my blog is on my to-do list

-I’m surprised at the fact that I have 25, no, 26 things on this list!

Have anymore?


MeanRachel says:

Good list. I’d add:

– When you start telling your mom or sister a story about something that happened to you and they interrupt you, saying “I know, I already read about it on your blog.”

LOL same here 🙂 and really awesome list!

Angela says:

Yes, I notice when you don’t post cause I start getting all jittery. 😉

Mallory says:

Mine would be: When you start every conversation by saying, “I read on this blog…” or “This lady who’s blog I read…” or something similar.

I’m still not sure I get everything about blogging. All I know how to do is post, really. And comment. And follow. Is there more?

I really liked (and totally laughed) about you wanting to mention your blog in a church talk! HILARIOUS!

Alisa says:

When your stepmom says “We read about you on your blog but it would be good to hear from you every once in a while.”

Brittanie says:

I can totally relate to this. My husband voluntarily says he doesn’t understand. And, it’s like being a reporter- everything in your life is good for a story and has SO many more meanings than those on the surface of the story!

My mom actually told me she wanted me to tell her things before I wrote them on my blog… I felt really bad, until my next post and I realized I hadn’t told my mom yet!

But I totally agree and feel the same way about blogging. I have been such a slacker lately and haven’t posted as much, but such is 40 hours of work a week and a toddler…

When my husband is giving me the side-eye–AGAIN–because I’m commenting on other people’s blogs instead of his conversation… LOL!!!

What is SITS and BlogHer? You sure do love blogging! haha 🙂 When I was updating mine yesterday Cory kept telling me to go to sleep because I did not feel well at all!!! haha, so funny.

Here’s another ding on your phone for ya! I’m such a good friend 🙂

AndreaLeigh says:

is that why I lost follwers this week? b/c I was pretty upset and mad about that. my feelings were hurt!

Natalie says:

Yeah, I know people frown on scheduled posts but I think it’s the only way to go!!! Really!!

Apryll says:

LOL I love this post, too funny. My email goes to my cell phone. My husband always laughs when we are walking in the store and I’m shouting “someone just commented on my blog!” LOL it’s so exciting. I need to put blogging on my to do list. I like the idea of writing up a bunch and scheduling them ahead when I’m in the mood to write. Thanks for the idea! Have a great day!
