My good good friend, G, and I don’t see each other as much as we would like or even talk as much as we would like. When I first emailed her the link to my blog she thought it was neat, but it worried her. “How?” I asked. “Well, now we really don’t have to talk because I’ll be all caught up on your news.” “Don’t worry”, I said, “I don’t put EVERYTHING in there. We’ll still have plenty to talk about.”
She keeps up on my blog during her lunch hour at work. It’s become somewhat of a routine for her. I love that! But! Two days ago, during a phone conversation, she mentioned that since she hadn’t read my blog that day to not tell her anything!! G! What a funny irony.
Her and I have since laughed about this, but it put me in mind of something that I read on the internet. It was a list of ways to let you know if you’ve become addicted to blogging. I don’t remember them all, but a couple of them stood out for me. (not verbatim) “When you are in the middle of doing something fun you are thinking of whether it’s blog-worthy.” Hmmmm. “You have more blog friends than real friends.” I’m not there, yet, but I’m normally kind of shy about making new friends. Yet, it’s surprisingly easy to make blog friends. “You mental blog while driving or sometimes even when you are alone in the shower.” What up?! I do my best thinking in the shower!
So, am I addicted? I will admit if something happens I quickly think how it would make a good entry in my blog. Even with this conversation with my friend. It was pretty much right after we hung up that I thought about writing it here. In fact, if I hadn’t been sick it wouldn’t have taken me two days! Ah well, it’s an innocent addiction, right? Can anyone relate?
