I Just Had An Intervention....

In response to the picture I posted here, I was reminded that I did not properly confess my addiction. So, ChicagoLady, this one's for YOU!

*standing*

Hello, my name is Shan and I'm a blog-aholic. I have not stopped blogging. I am not sure that I can or even want to. You see, I have all these fabulous friends that live in the box on my desk. The only way I can talk to them is through that box. I love reading their blogs. I love writing my own blog and reading the comments people leave me. It's like getting hugs through my inbox.

I love meeting new people. I am a very social person, although not many people "get" me here in my neck of the woods. So I had to branch out of my comfort zone to find those in far off lands (like Georgia, Illinois, Utah, Texas, Arizona...) who do, in fact, get me. I am expanding my horizons, so to speak. I am a Stay~At~Home~Mama to an amazing, nearly 4 year old girl. I love it. She can also drive me thisclose to the Nut Hut.

You must see my dilemma and need for adult conversation while my Husband is at work, right? And, since I do not have the ability to astral-project (I have heard it is very hard on the body & mentally draining) nor do I have super powers that would allow me to go and physically visit them, the box on my desk is my window to the world, well the virtual world, anyway. Besides, unlike the other 99.99% of the free world, we have only had a home PC since July of '08. {Stop laughing} So this is all new to me. I'm still learning the ropes. I have a very large learning curve. I am a technological idiot.

It takes time to concoct compose something witty and coherent enough to get perfect strangers my friends to follow along, especially with the near constant interruptions from The Diva. And when the mojo is flowing, you can't just abruptly stop it. Did anyone ever try to stop Monet or Steinbeck's creative grooves? No, right? See, I knew you would understand. I'm not trying to be Dooce or that Prairie chick. I actually want interaction with my readers. But I would like to be able to make just 1/10 of what Heather B. makes off her blog, if only to prove to my husband that my blogging is both productive AND creative.

So, no, I don't need a sponsor. I will not be getting any 30 day blogging sober chips....

My name is Shan and I am a blog~aholic...AND I LOVE IT! You can't make me stop! You can't! You can't! YOU CAN"T!! SO THERE! HMMMPPPH!

*sticks out tongue. blows raspberry. turns around and runs after her preschooler, who is playing duck, duck, goose with unwilling participants*

Very well done. The first step to being cured is admitting you have a problem.

Wait, you don't want to be cured? You're enjoying it too much?

Welcome to the club. I have been a blogaholic since Jr. High, only back them I remember everyone calling them Online Journals. LOL! I was on DeadJournal, LiveJournal, Xanga, etc. My addiction has gotten way out of control since switching to Blogger about 2 years ago. Not sure why. Again. Welcome to the club. :)
