10 SIGNS YOU’RE SPENDING TOO MUCH TIME BLOGGING

  1. Your spouse carries a picture of the back of your head in their wallet because this is what they normally see.

  2. Sitemeter goes down and you have a panic attack.

  3. The first thing you do when visiting a new blog is to see if your blog is on their blogroll.

  4. Your spouse’s lawyer serves you with divorce papers by leaving a comment on your blog.

  5. One of your children walk up to you while you’re at your computer and you ask, “Now, which one are you?”

  6. Your mom finds out you’re having another child by reading your blog.

  7. You find yourself thinking, โ€œThat’s a great blog idea,โ€ so you get out of bed in the middle of the night to write the idea down.

  8. Youโ€™re putting off going to bed with your beautiful wife so that you can think of number ten on your top ten list.

  9. You decide to take a sabbatical from your blog for a full day.

  10. You have more friends in the blogging world than in your real world.

    Man,

    I am ashamed to even comment on this one.

    Thanx… I guess.

    Yikes.
    I think you could add (since most of us have done it):
    “You actually spend time making a list of the characteristics that make you a blog-addict.”

    Trey, #4 is funny! No comment on the rest.

    None of the above, but I did get my husband to copy the post on “How to Handle Criticism” to use as reference material for a lesson on “Wounded by Friendly Fire” he is to give next Wednesday evening at Rock Hill, SC. Don’t know what David Pharr originally had in mind for this topic, but Lon thought your list was an excellent tie-in. Hope you don’t mind, Trey. I am sure he will give credit where credit is due.

    Those are great, Trey! Number 6 is my favorite.
    How about……..

    you have to be away from the computer a lot and start to feel withdrawal.

    I have been having that lately. Have a good evening!

    That’s right Neva, fess up!
    It is funny that at the beginning of January I was asking her that very question. See what kind of friend she is…

    Trey, most of these were funny, some sad and some I’d never confess to..

    Hum….I’m Monalea and I read/write blogs…

  21. Neva says:

    ummmmmm, what’s “fess up”?

  22. NB says:

    # You’re out with your friends in the real world and you start wishing your blogging friends could be there too.

    # You’re out on the interstate and you see all the out-of-state license plates and you think how cool it would be if one of your blogging friends from that state would drive up next to you.

  23. Neva says:

    nb

    I like that last one. That would be cool

    neva

  24. NB says:

    I kept waving at all you guys but you just kept driving! hmmp.

    Sorry,
    I didn’t recognize you. I thought you just were some crazy person.

    :)
    please forgive me. :)

    peace neva

  26. AncientWanderer says:

    You feel the need to add a #11 or even #12 to a Top Ten List ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  27. lisa says:

    SO FUNNY!! All of you!

    NB, you cracked me up — I do the same thing, always hoping I’ll amazingly run into a blogging friend. How cool would that be? I always think about blogging friends when I’m with my normal friends too.

    Uh, I meant, “when I’m with my regular friends” — um, physically present friends??

  28. lisa says:

    How about this one: “You burn your kids’ breakfast because you just had to get in this one comment first.”

  29. DJG says:

    Recently I was accused of going to events just to meet more of my blogging friends…..

    GET OFF OF ME!!!

  30. NB says:

    How about: You’re late to work because you’re waiting on a new post.
