I think I have a problem.
I came home from work at ten last night,
and my husband met me at the door,
His face telling me something was wrong.
He said “What is the worst thing that could be gone in the house?”,
“Oh no!” I said “not the internet!”.
He looked at me blankly for a moment,
then he said,
“No! the heat!”.
This was a big realisation for me.
Blogging is not my hobby,
Its an addiction!
I couldn’t tell him,
but I was thrilled it was not the internet.
I am sitting here freezing,
And I am still happy its not the internet!
I think wordpress have a lot to answer for.
The sight of that little star,
Or better still a follow,
And best of all a comment!
You bloggers have a lot to answer for too.
I love humor,
I love to laugh,
I have become accustomed to getting up,
saying good bye to my husband,
(I just stop short of pushing him out the door),
and turning on my laptop,
for a good laugh.
A joke, or video,
a story, well told.
I get completely absorbed.
If I had a tablet it would look better,
however my family are now used to seeing me,
do what needs to be done around the house,
whilst carrying my laptop,
just in case I miss something.
I am a month blogging now.
I have a new dilemma.
I am a private person,
and only went on facebook,
to get addresses of two friends abroad,
whom I had lost contact with.
Apart from my own husband and children,
and a handful of friends,
I have told no one about my blog.
When I first blogged,
I ticked the box publicize.
Then a week later,
my son showed me that my thirteen friends,
who had added me on facebook,
(yes all thirteen)
were able to see it.
I took immediate action.
well my son did!
Every day I read,
“Get more traffic to your blog”
This is hard to do when it is still a secret!
I’m not sure why I don’t just tell,
maybe I will in time.
However until then,
I have faced up to it.
