A Sick Compulsion
The past day or two I have had a physical compulsion to blog. The moment I come home from work, I turn on the computer and start checking. My husband opens the door to my office, grumbles, "Oh you're on the computer," and slams it shut again. My children repeat themselves trying to get my attention away from the screen. I think about blogging before I go to sleep -- What am I going to post? How many blogs can I visit today? Can I find again that cool blog I found the other day? Has anyone left a nice comment for me? I find myself not doing things I really should be doing in order blog. I can see this is starting to become a problem. Will I have to give up blogging if I can't strike a balance between the real world and the blogosphere? Is there treatment? Do other bloggers experience this same phenomenon?
