Blogging More Than A Hobby!

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!small_4240912364

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,small__4329624449
two brothers,
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.

My name is tric,
I’m addicted to blogging.

  1. My blog is secret too, but friends and family made it that way. No one that knows about it’s existance really cared to check it out, and now that over a year has gone by and my heart lay bear for strangers they want to venture on and see what I have to say. No, thank you.

    HHAHHAA not the internet! My internet was all kinds of messed up last night, and I kept thinking, why do I pay for this?! Then I remember everything I do is via internet.

  2. That sounds like me. It took me 4 months to put my picture on my page. Now I am a bit more comfortable telling people about it. My blog is where I can be vulnerable about life and feel as though no one can judge me and if they do judge me who cares! I don’t know them. Now the addicted part I can’t say that I am. Probably because I am a single Mother of 4 very busy kids who can hardly find time to clean house. I reward myself with “blogging time” the weekends my ex has the kids.

    1. Oh dear. I have four kids who I think have social services and childline on speed dial since I found bloging! Oh well keeps me from drinking. Although I am just heading out with friends…Thanks for the comment and calling by.

  3. HI, TRIC! 😉 I’m also definitely addicted!
    I don’t share with family that I have a blog either (of course, I don’t do FB) I am happy that, on WordPress, I can really express myself in a way that isn’t necessarily typical of me. Like, I enjoy sharing parenting and marriage articles, when I wouldn’t talk about either with family. We’re a joking, sarcastic bunch, so serious talk doesn’t really fit. Kwim?

  4. Hello, my name is Helen and I am a recovering blogging addict too, I’m on a small break, but reading your blog has inspired me to get started up again. Im just waiting for the day I dare to! Keep up the good work 🙂

  5. Hello! I’m Karaboo and I’m and addict too!
    I don’t share my blog with just anyone in real life because I’m an ex wife and a stepmom and I don’t need any more drama in my life! If my exes knew I blogged about them then all hell would beak loose! Also, I’m sure my step kids wouldn’t like what I wrote about them as well….. So I keep everything as anonymous as possible.

    1. Oh thanks a million. Your very good. Not sure my kids and better half think I radiate sunshine! Thank you very much. much appreciate this.

  6. Lol! So true about the likes, comments and follow! I check my stats everyday. My blog has not been publicized yet. And I’ve not put my picture up… Maybe some day.

    1. I think you should be brave. Went out last night and had two drinks…. that was enough to down my barrier, told a few of my friends!
