WHEN BLOGGING GOES BAD

“NOT TONIGHT DEAR, I HAVE TO BLOG”

I found this interesting… Did you know that according to Reuters latest surveys, surfing the net has become an obsession for many Americans with the majority of U.S. adults feeling they cannot go for a week without going online? Amazingly one in three are willing to give up friends and sex for the Web.

A survey asked 1,011 American adults how long they would feel OK without going on the Web, to which 15 percent said a just a day or less, 21 percent said a couple of days and another 19 percent said a few days. Only a fifth of those who took part in an online survey said they could go for a week.

Just for fun, here are “Ten Signs you’re Blogging too Much! Number 8 still makes me laugh. Have a great weekend.

  3. Brandon Voss says:

    Tulsa Workshop is going to be awesome! Books everywhere, plus good speakers (I am bordering on becoming a groupie. Sigh.) and my favorite restaurant in the whole world.

    Computers are addictive little life-sucking monsters. Now, please excuse me while I comment on another blog and plan how to get my last couple of bubbles before I hit my next level…

    :)

    yeah, I was talking to my wife, melissa last month about something like this.

    oh wait, it was two months ago, and her name is Marisa, and I think we were actually talking about something else.

    Of course for us single folks… reading about IT on your blog is all we get! :)

    I didn’t mean “get” I meant – oh heck! I meant – no, I can’t say that either. It always comes back to ‘you know’ – you know?

    Oh, dear. Trey, you have me pegged. I have actually had serious thoughts about this; I’ve had to make sure I wasn’t addicted to blogging. I’m not necessarily an online junkie, but certainly spend some time on the blog AND if it can be researched on the web, I will spend literally HOURS finding the answer to something without getting anxious or frustrated or bored. It doesn’t surprise me ONE BIT to hear these statistics…because I contribute to them. HOWEVER…I would never consider giving up friends or sex for blogging. Maybe that’s how I will check myself from now on…”I’ve been on my blog for an hour now; is it taking away from friendship or intimacy with my hubby?” AND…I LOVED # 7, too! Because I’ve done that…more than once…and not just at night when I wake up…I do it driving down the street, in my classroom, on the treadmill…I even have a term for it. I ask myself, “is it blogworthy?” Maybe that will become a new adjective, like “google” has become a new verb!

  8. TREY MORGAN says:

    Brian … too funny!

    That Girl … you poor single folks. No wonder you have so much time to blog. (sorry)

    cdj – I love the term “blogworthy.” I’ve used it many times too. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one constantly thinking, “that’ll blog!”

  9. Brandon Voss says:

    p.s I know and understand “That Girl”

  10. Timbra Wiist Owner/Photographer says:

    okay, so now you post a sex life blog and some boy is trying to get with “that girl” . . . is this secretly a singles networking site? we’ll be at the workshop, you must come!!! nowadays it’s gotten to the point that if our friends don’t get online and communicate with us within 2 days, then we think they’ve died and we begin harassing them, so none of us can feel comfortable with more than two days because either 1)we’ll be harrassed, or 2)people might think we’re dead. . . . ha!

  11. Dwight says:

    Blogging is highly personal and private, something to be kept between a person and their computer, and I don’t think you should be talking about it in a blog that could be read by little children. It seems like that’s all we hear on TV and the radio…blogging coming at us from all directions. Our culture is going “blog-crazy,” and I’m afraid it will be the doom of our nation. So, clean it up Trey!

  12. TREY MORGAN says:

    That’s a big 10-4, Dwight! Good point.
