I recently read a post Pondering the Weirdness of Blogging that inspired me to write my own post about how blogging has changed my life.
A year and a half ago, blogging was just something that existed in other people’s daily lives. I didn’t bother much about reading blogs either. Today I find myself jumping online every free moment to check my email for new comments, and I get myself lost in multiple blogs as I try to find out what other people like me are doing and writing about. I really do spend a lot of time with blogs these days.
- My laptop may as well be part of my legs, though I would have very hot legs all the time.
- My browser often has more tabs than it can display as I keep clicking on links to other posts and blogs. They just multiply like rabbits.
- I have LOTR syndrome. Ok, I just made that condition up. It comes from the story of my mother-in-law immersing herself in The Lord of the Rings novels and unintentionally ignoring the children.
- I know some people only by their screen name.
- I am interested in what avatar I get when a blog generates one for me.
- I stare blankly sometimes, wondering what I can blog about next.
- Instead of watching TV, I listen while reading stuff online. Then I ask hubby what happened. Again.
- I lose track of the time and only care when baby needs me, I’m hungry/thirsty/tired, or I need to pee.
- My laptop has more crumbs stuck under the keys. I can hear them crunch when I type.
- I take photos “for my blog”. I have an excess of photos now.
- I have become more creative, and more motivated to share my creativity with all you lovely folk :D
Thank you blogs, bloggers, and readers!
(Was going to take a photo for this blog, but the camera battery is dead. Another thing that blogging is to blame for. Although I admit it was my fault for plugging the glue gun in yesterday instead of the charger. Camera battery still dead but I had a super warmed up glue gun this morning.)
