Do read through the following description (extracted from the article) and see if you fit most of them. Then, you will know if you are a Blogging Addict or not.
You want to blog about every minute of your life, even if it’s just about doing your daily chores.
My Answer: I am not there yet.
If your Internet gets disconnected even for a minute, you become anxious and worried. You start throwing tantrums and blame every single official who is responsible for the downtime.
My Answer : I am not happy but not worried. Unfortunately, I do blame the internet provider for no connection even when I was not a blogger.
You take the comments on your blog far too seriously and irrationally.
My Answer: I take comments seriously but not irrationally. I appreciate the time my readers take to comment but so far, I am very lucky. There was not one mean comment so far.
You feel good and relaxed about the recent article that you posted, but the feeling melts away quite fast as the time for the next article approaches.
My Answer: No, I don’t feel like that. When some thoughts come to my mind, I will jot them down and I only write a post when I feel like it. There is no pressure but pleasure.
The more you write, the more connected and light you feel about opening up your personal life to your readers. The feeling of ‘I am somebody’ spreads over your mind overpowering you of all your real life aspects and bounties.
My Answer: I agree with the first part. Yes, I do feel more connected to my readers as compared to a year ago when I first started my blog but I never once feel I am somebody. In fact, I don't want to be. I want to be me.
You give more priority to your laptop than your girlfriend or boyfriends
My Answer: I can be guilty of that. In this case, not my boyfriend but my Quay Lo. Maybe m Quay Lo should answer this.
You want isolation from the world so that you can be with your computer and blog. Noise annoys you just too much.
My Answer: I don’t think I will ever want isolation. I have so many friends to catch up with. On the other hand, I don't think I can live without my computer. I love my blog and my readers so it is not likely that I will give up blogging either.
People around you and your family complain that you don’t give them enough time; they say you have changed dramatically.
My Answer: So far, so good, no one complains yet. My family felt the change in me but they are happy with the change because I feed them homecooked food instead of store-bought like before I started food blogging.
What do you think, am I a Blogging Addict? I hope am not and I really don’t want to be. A piece of good advice from the article that I will definitely heed. Good advice for all bloggers.
Blogging is fun, only when it is filled with good content that has been written by a healthy and happy blogger. Don’t let blogging take over your life, because you only live once. The need to ‘be somebody’ is prevalent in all humans but that should not let you compromise with your health and everything else that is good in your life. Your spiritual, social, emotional and personal well-being is the real ‘YOU’ in the right context and this defines you more beautifully than a blog.
So for today, I won’t tell you a story of my life or share a recipe. I am taking a break but can I share with you pictures of what we had for lunch? LOL!
Everyone knows how to make biscuit, bacon and eggs with gravy. There you go!
Biscuit, bacon and eggs with gravy
My Quay Lo said the biscuit was a bit dense this time but he still finished it all! Maybe it is Lucy! She might have used the wrong measurement of baking powder and baking soda.
For those who really do not know how to make biscuit and would like to have the recipe, please leave a comment and your email address. I am very happy to email you the recipe that I use. Have a wonderful weekend!
