Yes I admit it I am sick… I’ve tried it all and yet nothing seems to work… I still cannot really believe it…. It took me only a month, or even less, to develop it and now it is in its final stages… I am shattered… I knew it form the very beginning that something wasn’t right… I can’t really describe it… may be yes, I can now… but I don’t really want to… I don’t want to admit it… But the evidence is all there… It was during one sleepless night that I stumbled in a place where I learnt what I had…. Why me? How? One does not realise it until it hits oneself straight in the forehead… Yes I admit it I have been afflicted by a very grave case of Acute Blog Compulsion and Compulsive Blogger’s Syndrome… How did I found out? It is thanks to Bloggers Anonymous… Well… I’ll let the expert talk…
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 – the jerk!
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 also bypass a night out with the mates and The Story of My Life 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?”
