A Blog Addict!

It's been a while since I last posted anything, actually its only been 3 days but to me that's like a long time and that makes me sound like a blog addict, rite :) I'm not really sure If I'm addicted to blogging but I would say I love blogging (sure does sound like an addiction ... hehehe).

I started blogging about four months ago, somewhere around early February I think. Before that I used to wonder what the big deal about blogging was? When the undersea cables snapped some months back, some felt lost, suicidal, hysterical even (okay, okay, I'm making that up .. hehehe, the hysterical part atleast).

Then one day my wife decided to start a blog of her own. I didn't give it much thought. In fact I even think I ribbed her about it (sorry honey). Then, I decided to help her with her layouts (I may be in client service but I'm actually graphic trained). It turned out to be quite fun and I decided to try starting my own blog and before I knew it, there I was with my own blog and I must say that if the undersea cables ever snapped again, I'd scream bloody murder with the rest of you ... LOL!

I don't really know what it is about blogging that makes me want to log on everyday (when sometimes I should really be working instead ... hehehe) and check on my blog or even just to visit the blogs of the many new friends I've made out there. For me, I guess it's a place where I can put thoughts to words, an avenue to rant, rave and ramble about whatever I feel. Besides it is kinda cool to actually read the comments my fellow bloggers leave about my incoherent ramblings :) Not to mention visiting their excellent blogs and leaving my own crazy comments on their postings as well ... LOL! In fact the numerous blogs out there are so well done and so well written, I feel like a novice (but you are a novice, Nick!).

There's never a day that goes by nowadays that I don't log on for a minimum of 30 minutes to check my blog and the blogs of my buddies before I start my work in the morning or when I have some free time in the office cos at home I have to 'fight' with my beloved for blog time on the laptop .. hehehe ... she's also an avid blogger :) She's helped me a lot with loads of advise about my blog. She has the patience to find all those cool widgets and stuff and I'll just steal it right off her (yeah, I'm the guy who posted about plagiarism ... hehehe).

So, I guess that makes me an official blog addict huh? (Ok, ok, I'll admit, I'm an addict already ... hehehe)

  3. White Crystal - No, I've never really thought about getting rid of it. Maybe when I'm bored with blogging I might.

    Janice - I guess there are lots of people with the same feelings. I may like blogging but I try not to let it interfere with my regular life.

  4. Welcome to the club. Chill. You didn't go as far as to buy your own domain name!

    Me? My blog is like a mistress. Not a wife or girlfriend!

    Hope you're much better now after all that illness.

  5. Hey Hui Sen, nah, I'm not up to the point of wanting my own domain name. I don't think I'd have the time and energy to maintain it consistently. And I'm much, much better now, thank you :)

  7. I share the addiction! I am not sure why but if there were no computers and I had to write in a journal/diary on paper everyday I probably wouldn't. Amazing huh?! Although my grandfather wrote in a journal ever night. He started when my parents adopted me (I was 2 1/2, up until he passed when I was 20 yrs old. My grandma was thinking about making them into a book but I think it was to hard for her to read. Lots of love and memories there.

  8. Marzie - yeah, sometimes it's hard to 'drag' myself to getting work done. But then, I used to be like that even before I had a blog!

    Diamond - Your grandfather sounds like a real cool and romantic kinda guy. you're right though, if there were no such thing as a blog, I would never write things down on paper.
