Stop! You're moving the cursor toward the comment section. Yes, you!!! Go ahead, click the mouse for . . . you too are a blogoholic.
Sing along with me, to the tune of Beyonce's I'm A Single Lady except the new lyrics are . . . I'm a blogoholic, I'm a blogoholic, I'm a blogoholic!
Sorry, couldn't resist a tad bit of snark this morning. Portions of this post were inspired by Lady Glamis' post about turning it off. Go here to read the post. Her suggestion to - shudder, gasp, OMG what will I do - take a week away from the Internet (insert sound of Scott's head hitting the desk as he passes out from sheer horror) is quite inspiring and . . . FRIGHTENING.
I love the blogsphere. I love the information, the banter in the comments section, the inspiration the blogs provide for me (and hopefully others as well), and the sharing of knowledge. I love the sense of community. Still, the blogsphere has a tendency to overwhelm at times due to the vast resources available within the writing blogsphere.
There are only so many hours in any given day.
Should I be writing the next epic novel instead of following so many blogs? Should I be doing 100 extra crunches rather than commenting here, there, and everywhere . . . in a house with a mouse, in a box with a fox, on a train in the rain (woo-hoo for Green Eggs and Ham)? Should I be interacting with friends/family instead of my fellow bloggers? Well, probably, but what fun is that?
Kidding! Still (yes, repetitive use of that word in this post), my name is Scott and I'm a blogoholic!
There is hope for me, and my fellow bloggers. Go here to Lady Glamis' post and read her outrageous (brilliant, perhaps) suggestion. Take a chance and step away from the blogs . . . but not forever, for you will be missed!
Have a great Friday!
