S Is For Signs You Are Addicted To Blogging


Day 19 of my A to Z Challenge. S is for Signs You Are Addicted To Blogging.
If you don't know how this works, I've posted the link back to the rules of the challenge at the end of this, along with a link to yesterday's post. If you want to read my full alphabet, just keep following the links. Each day has a link back to yesterday's post.

Ever think you might be addicted to blogging? Read on and find out!

You know you are addicted to blogging when:

1.    You switch on your laptop/pc/iPad, and check your blog stats before you even open Facebook, email or your personal Twitter.

2.    You start going out more because you need material to write about in your blog but at the same time you feel you don’t have time for a life for blogging about your life!

3.    You realise mid conversation that what you are talking about would make a great blog post then lose track of the conversation writing the post in your head.

4.    You see other bloggers talking about writer’s block and for all you know it will happen to you at some point, you can’t imagine ever being stuck for something to say.

5.    People think you are writing a ridiculously long text message when you're using your phone in public – you are actually writing that great idea that just came to you that you are scared you might forget!

6.    You pre-write a post you for another day then get all excited and want to post it now.

7.    You suddenly start smiling/laughing a little mid argument with someone because that argument will make a fab blog post (the beauty of this is it usually stops the argument too!).

8.    You read other blogs more than you read anything else.

9.    You debate starting a diet/fitness plan/juice cleanse just because you want to write a “my journey” style series of posts.

10. You identify with all or most of these points and you love it!
How many of these do you agree with? What would you add?

    1. Lol we are all so similar in the crazy things we do for our blogs! I'm thinking of starting adding a few pictures to my posts, so I'm sure I'll be taking random pictures soon too! Thanks for stopping by :)

  3. So true, all of these. I'd add, that you spend as much time if not more time blogging and doing social media around your blog, as you do in your full time job. No wonder I don't get enough sleep.

  12. I started my blog last year but have only really been blogging properly the past couple of months and can already see how addictive it can become. I keep losing track of what I'm meant to be doing at work because I'm sneakily reading posts!

  17. Definitely agree with the majority of these! Especially the writing a blog post the day before - I'm so impatient, I just love being able to click publish straight away so very rarely have posts lined up! Thanks so much for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday

    1. It' so hard not to post isn't it, especially when it's something you feel particularly close to. Thank you for hosting :)

  18. These. Are. Too. True. And. So. Relatable.

    I'm hooked to my phone when I'm amidst a group of people. They think I'm ignoring them when I do this. But when I tell them I'm a blogger, they often ask for custom-made blog posts. Some even willingly volunteer to be subjects of my next blog post! :D

    Worth a share!

    1. Oh wow really that could work either way - if they are super interesting then it could give you great material. If there's nothing you particularly want to write about them though it could get a bit ugly! Thanks so much for commenting :)
