Blogaholic

Hi. My name is Melanie and I am a blogaholic.

Everyone: Hi Melanie.

Me: It all started after Hailey was born. I just wanted a little place to put up pictures of her for my family and friends to see.

Everyone: It always starts so innocently.

Me: Then I had found some other blogs that I enjoyed reading. I made sure to read them everyday. Only a couple of blogs, it didn't take much of my time.

Everyone: Mhmmmmm

Me: Soon I found some more blogs to read. Then I started leaving comments and other people were leaving me comments.

Everyone: That's not too bad.

Me: No, it wasn't too bad. But, before I knew it I was addicted to blogging. I post almost everyday. I have five ten twenty too many to count blogs that I read once in a while everyday. I leave lots of comments. I check my email a gazillion times a day to see if I have any new comments. I even dream about blogging.

Everyone: That does sound pretty bad.

Me: Oh, it is. As soon as Hailey goes down for her nap I start my blogging. I try to tell myself that I will only blog for 15 minutes because there are other things to do- like folding laundry and dusting the house. Before I know it, an hour and a half has passed and Hailey is awake.

Everyone: You're right, this is serious.

Me: Sometimes when Rich is hogging the computer and I can't get my blogging fix during Hailey's nap- I start to twitch.

Everyone: It's worse than we thought!

Me: Yes, it is bad and I don't know what to do!!

Welcome to the club, I'm KC and I'm too am a bloggaholic.
This summer I'm trying to be a bit better but that is only because I have 4 kids home with me all day long and I just can't find the time to get my fix. :)

Hahahaha! Oh, Melanie. That is hilarious. I cannot believe how similar we were. I guess it is true that "great minds thing alike". Either that or we are just both completely beyond hope!

Thanks for stopping by. I loved reading yours.

Ok, coming clean here too. I'm joining your club too. I guess that means now I am addicted to bloggers annonymous groups too. :)

Talk..to..Grams said...

Hi, I just read this blog to my twenty something year old daughter who has a My Space page. She said that everytime I'm hogging the computer, blogging, that she goes through withdrawls, too. I think we both need to join bloggers annonymous!

Leah & Jon said...

Very funny! It's way too easy to do!! There's something about the computer and wasting time!

Jan B said...

Me too, but then you probably knew that. I can't turn the darned thing off. It has become the new TV. We're not couch potatoes, we're office rats. I hate it. That's it. I am logging off for tonite!

Pearls of Wisdom said...

Forgot can I link to your blog to make visiting easier?

Hi, My Name is ComfyDenim.....

Isn't it funny how we get wrapped up in things?? One minute I'm thinking I'll blog while the kids watch Arthur the next minute it's dinner time and I'm supposed to cook. *L*

my4kids said...

I need to join too.
Hi my names my4...um Terri (is it bad when you identify yourself with you blog name?).....I've been blogging for a little over a year now. It was all good in the beginning some posts here and their about the kids then people started coming by to see what I said and its all gone down hill from there. 9 months ago I had like 3 blogs linked to me now my sidebar has.....oh 38 and I have to check each one....daily.....its bad I need help.

Overwhelmed! said...

You're in good company! It's 6 a.m. and I got up early just so I could blog before I go in to work. :)

In case you want another blog to read...stop by and check mine out. I'm giving away a free book this week to one lucky winner. It might be you! :)

Overwhelmed! said...

Melanie, thanks for stopping by to enter in my book drawing. To qualify for the drawing on Saturday, I just need to have you post about this giveaway on your blog before Friday!

Thanks again!

Hailey's own grandmother said...

Hi I'm your Blogaholic reader. I am constantly checking your blog just to see how you are all doing and to see pictures of Hailey -lest she grows up before I see her again. I LOVE your blog. Keep up the GREAT work.
