The Obsessive Blogger

You know you're an obsessive blogger when...

You check your own site at least 20 times a day to see if counter has changed yet.

You can't fall asleep at night thinking about what you'll write next (every, even insignificant, detail of your day is scanned for possible topics).

Your children start to have jealousy toward the computer just as they would toward any new baby in the family.

You contemplate making anonymous comments to your own posts.

You dream not in black and white or in color, but in html.

You have calluses on the tips of your fingers from typing too much.

Your children start to lovingly refer to the tv as "Mommy".

The term "clean laundry" comes to refer to those garments having only been laying on the top of the hamper for a day or two (as opposed to those you have to dig for).

The floor around your computer desk is covered with food and drink stains from frequent mealtimes spent there.

You keep your digital camera in your pocket just in case you come across anything you want to blog about while out and around town.

If more than 3 of the above situations apply to you...

Everything is going to be okay. Just slowly put the mouse down, place your hands behind your head and step away from the computer.
