You Know You're a Blog Addict When...

I thought this would make everyone laugh. It did for me as I sit here at 7:45 a.m. EST drinking my first cup of coffee after I laid in bed for an hour saying "What can I write today" LOL!!!

You know you are a blog addict when

I have my stats page as my homepage... wait, let me correct that. One of my four stats pages is my homepage.

I have my own website for the blog, which along with the hosting, was actually a gift from a wonderful friend)

I check blogs more than I check the news

I have, on at least one occasion, gone to MY OWN BLOG to check and see if there had been any new entries made since the last time I'd checked it... and what I think is the best indicator of all, an entry from my own blog from August 2002

Now one more thing to make you laugh

You start out just reading a few blogs, to kill time when you’re waiting for your boss to give you some boring assignment or other. Or maybe you’ve always been curious about something your trendier friends have been doing for years. Next thing you know you’re checking in every day, for hours at a time, even when it's a beautiful day or you have urgent work to do, and your list of essential blogs is approaching triple digits. Then comes your first comment on someone else’s blog. Someone -- maybe even the blog-owner! -- replies to your comment, and agrees with you. You send a tip to Sullivan or the Instapundit, and he uses it! The rush is un-freakin-believable, man! Now you’re hooked. Soon you’re lying awake half the night screaming for a blog of your own. Your trendy friends give you the name of someone who can get you started on the hard stuff, a trustworthy supplier named Ev or Ben or Mena. Once you’re up and running, you can’t stop checking your hit count and referrer logs, updating and posting, uploading and reloading, over and over for hours at a stretch, like a lab monkey with a push-button cocaine-drip: it’s just too pleasant to stop. Every morning you wake up hungry for more, roll up your sleeves, plug into your keyboard, and feel the sweet sweet blog soak into your consciousness. You spend the whole day in a blissful fog. (Why do you think they call it ‘bl-og’?) And when the blog wears off at the end of a very late evening, you crawl off to bed, saying 'That’s the last time. Really. I can quit any time I want'. In your heart you know it’s a lie. You’re a slave to cruel Lady Blog. You start trying to get more friends interested. Pretty soon all your friends are serious bloggies. Now you know where to go for the good stuff, the urgent fixes. When one of the more reliable suppliers is no longer on his streetcorner, it drives you half-insane. VodkaPundit takes a whole week off: doesn’t he care about his customers? PejmanPundit goes out on a date and doesn’t come back on-line until late the next morning: you’re waiting for him when he checks in. InstaPundit belies his name by spending time with his family for almost an entire day: the lack of new posts gives you cold sweats and the shakes. And his archives have disappeared, too, so you can't link to the post that would prove it. Now the Sarge has gone silent and he won’t even tell us for how long. I can’t take it! Give me my blog! For God's sake give me my blog!

I'm not an addict yet, but I think I'm getting hooked. During the day I'm wondering if anyone's viewed my latest entry, I'm curious if anyone gives a damn, I'm hoping someone replied even if it's to flame me. I'm starting to check twice a day now, and I'm bookmarking other blogs (2 so far). But I can quit anytime I want to......

Thank you all for responding!!

I hope these 12 steps encouragae you to blog more.......

1. We admitted we were powerless over blogging – that our posts had become unmanageable.

2. We came to believe that a blogger greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

3. We made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to AdultFriendFinder

4. We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves and told everyone in Blogville about it!

5. We admitted to Blogville, to ourselves and to other human beings the exact nature of our sexual encounters LOL

6. We are not entirely ready to have AdultFriendFinder remove all these defects of character and allow us to keep blogging to the wee hours of the night

7. We sexually told everyone of our short-cummings and our long ones too!.

8. We made a list of all persons we had sex with and became willing to fuck them all again

9. We made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except for the ones that have pissed us off. We just keep blogging about them.

10. We continued to take personal inventory and when we were horny, we promptly admitted it to Blogville.

11. We sought through sex and blogging to improve our views and replies

12. We have had a sexual awakening as the result of these Steps, we try to carry this message to compulsive bloggers and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
