My Name is Carol and I'm a Blogaholic...

I am not alone. I found this post which had a huge response from people stating their blogaholic symptoms. The whole idea was for fun but is any addiction harmless?

So, how do you keep your blogging under control? Or are you?

Like most other things, moderation is key. I love to blog, read blogs, look at my stats, add cool things to my blog, etc. But I think of it more as a hobby. I wouldn't want to, but if need be, I could stop blogging. But, man! It's just too much fun!!

Sometimes I spend more time blogging than I mean to, but with a husband and two teenagers in the house, all vying for one computer with internet accessibility, it's a self-limiting thing!

Right, it's one choice after another, not a pathology.

Ooh, like my word verfication. ltegluty (light glut-ie) :-)

I pray thou shalt hear the Angels singing all around you, thou encourager of the brethren!

I loved the post....I saw several things in the true confessions that were "a little close to home!"

Hi Erin,
Thanks for the comment. I hear you saying moderation and thinking it as a hobby.
Could I stop? Yes, now how to stop just in moderation.
I think attitude is important, it is just blogging after all.

Hi there, Mompoet,
Try with 3! Thanks!

Hi Pearl,
With an addiction, choices are taken away, so maybe I am not addicted. I can and will make sensible decisions.
I did that random blessing:
"Take comfort, O thou who trusteth in the Lord, for you will fall into the arms of Jesus!"
Nice.

Hi Kathy,
I think it is good to be aware of.

So, have fun but don't overdo it. Remember your family need computer time too. Make good choices and be aware!

Apparently, I amn ot a blogaholic yet. Which is good, because I have enough vices as it is! ;)

I try to stick to a plan and not wander around.

Hi Jennifer,
Can you tell me what you do to not spend too much time blogging?

Hi Barbara,
Great advice. Thanks!

Oh dear, I am going to need to go to rehab . . .

Anita,
That would be a fun-a computerless institution for the holidays.
