Signs You Might Be a Blog-aholic

1. You have more than one idea for a blog floating around in your head.
2. You check your blog several times a day to see if anyone new has left a comment.
3. You are depressed when they haven’t.
4. You leave a comment on a blog and are disappointed when you check back to find that the blog author hasn’t left a comment on your comment since you posted it 10 minutes ago.
5. You gauge your popularity by how many people site meter or Google Analytics say have visited your site.
6. You view the events, thoughts and quotes of your life through the lens of “How can I write about this in my next blog?”
7. You get excited when people add a link to your blog from theirs because you think that means they like you.
8. You feel connected to the people on your “blog roll” and begin to see them as close friends…even though you don’t even know their first names.
9. You check the blogs of your “friends” at least three times a day, just to see if there is anything new.
10. You blog about how obsessed you are with blogging.

So are you a blog-aholic? Or do you have any to add?

Oh, yeah, I'm there. :-)

12. Your preschooler smears peanut butter in his hair and dips himself in flour, and your first thought is, "This is going to make a great blog post tomorrow."

13. You have strange dreams about the word verification letters. You keep typing them again and again, but you just can't seem to post your comment. You wake in a cold sweat.

Hi. My name is Llama Momma and I'm...oh wait. Wrong meeting.

Just checking back to see if anyone commented on my comments. ;-)

I don't know whether to laugh or hang my head in shame... so I added you to my sidebar. :-)

LM - Ha! I like those additions. Maybe we can say blogging is a form of anger management because it diffuses the potentially explosive situation. Or maybe that's me being a blogaholic again. The funny thing is, my original title for the post was exactly that, "hello my name is spaghettipie and I'm a blogaholic." I keep finding myself trying to make sense of the word verification words - so far no luck.

Craver - Thanks for the addition! I feel so special and validated now. I might even be inclined to join the dance of joy...or not.

14. You take it as a sign of recovery that it took you two days to notice & comment on this post.

15. You quickly go to read the next two posts to get caught up so you're not out of the loop.
