The "Mock 10" Signs of Blog Addiction

If you aren't a blogger, you won't get the humor of this top 10 list. But if you are a blogger, you'll be 'Amening' and nodding your head the entire time!

10. You check your blog stats a LOT. You occasionally get up in the middle of the night and sneak a peak.

9. Your significant other suspects you are having an affair with your blog. Even when you’re alone with your special person, you do find yourself thinking what your blog might be doing right then.

8. You “mental blog” while driving or on the train, and sometimes even when you are alone in the shower.

7. You filter everything through your post-writing. You can’t watch a movie, see a play, read an article, or share a sweet moment with your child without thinking of whether it’s blog-worthy.

6. You suffer from “blog envy” when another blogger posts something juicy before you do. You suffer “comment envy” when said post gets 40-something comments.

5. You “binge blog” 3 or 4 posts at once—only to feel guilty and empty afterward.

4. You ditched all your real friends for blog friends, because, well, “they understand.” You bypass Bowling Alone at the bookstore (who really cares?) while you reach for Naked Conversations.

3. You think, “I can stop at any time.”

2. Your lunch hour has become your “blog hour.” You keep a few posts tucked in your desk in case you need them during the day.

1. After 5 minutes of meeting someone really interesting you ask, “So - do you blog?”

I can't believe I can already relate to so many of these and I've only been blogging for 2 months. HELP!

So, I was agreeing with it all until I got to the lunch hour part. Lunch hour? I've forgotten that existed! But it works if you insert "video moment" or "kids-are-playing-together-nicely break." :)

Hmmm... I'm not sure I can comment without incriminating myself. But, I agree with Amy.
