11 Ways To Know That You Are A Blog-a-Holic!

Are you a Blogaholic? Take a look at this post for 11 ways to know if you are a blogaholic

Ever since I started blogging just over a year ago I have turned into a blog-a-holic! Yup that's right I'm one of those bloggers who blogs daily, checks their blog stats regularly (sometimes daily or even 3 times a day) and also blogs in the early hours of the morning. It is more than just a hobby it has become an obsession! If you are a blogger you can probably relate to most of these at some time but I thought it would be fun to share my top ways to know that you are a blog-a-holic!

1. You refresh your blog homepage at least 10 times a day - I constantly go to my blog homepage when I'm bored...even though nothing has changed! I can't stop looking at it. 

2. You're partner/children say to you that your laptop is glued to your legs 24/7 - Andy always says I'm glued to my laptop... I can't say I disagree. 

3. You're eyes go blurry regularly! - I think I need glasses haha! I'm tempted to go and get my eyes checked even though I don't like glasses I could always get contacts. 

4. You find your belly rumbling and think it's time to get some lunch... 2 hours later you're still sat in the same place starving! 

5. The living room is a mess after you've let the little one run riot, you've been writing a blog post and haven't even noticed that they have pulled everything out of the draws and shelves. 

6. You don't have a bed time - I find that I blog silly o'clock in the morning as I can't seem to turn the laptop off. 

7. You have no social life... your internet social life is amazing yet your real social life is non existent. - I speak more to friends I've met through blogging than some of my best friends lately! 

8. You don't read books or magazines anymore, you read blogs! - I've never been much of a reader but I now find myself reading blogs daily. I love it! 

9. You take pictures everywhere you go... and tell yourself or who ever you are with "This will make a great blog post"

10. You carry a little notebook around to jot down blog ideas or even use the notes app in your phone. -  I jot things down all the time when they come to mind so I don't forget. 

11. You have a ridiculous amount of draft blog posts written but not yet published - I have 176!!!! I know... ridiculous. I tend to find myself just writing the title so I don't forget what I want to write about or have half written posts. Will I ever publish all of these? Probably not! 

Do you have any to add to the list? Let me know what your ways of knowing you're a blog-a-holic are below!

  5. so funny and... so real! i run my blog since more than one year but now that i can "meet" people, see my visitors growing slowly, have followers, well.... i can say i'm a blog-a-holic! and the best part is that i love it!!

    ReplyDelete
  6. I do a few of these, but I guess overall I'm not really a blog-a-holic. Maybe that means I have to try harder :p

    ReplyDelete
  7. I definitely am guilty of a few of these. Right now I need a coffee refill desperately, but I probably won't go get it until the baby gets up and then I'll never get to drink it haha

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love blogs, so fun and full of information and interesting ideas too x

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ha ha when I first started I was addicted, you eventually spend less time on it - although there's always something new to learn which hooks you back in again!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I found myself nodding to all of these!! Except number 11 - I haven't got to that many drafts.....yet!!

  35. Lol, such a funny post

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm about to start a blog... I suspect I too will become a blogaholic :P

    ReplyDelete
  37. This post might as well be talking about me, my husband and little boys are always talking about Mummys laptop time. I am always coming out with random bits of information and advice that I have acquired from the many blogs I read online. My magazine suscription now often goes unread, and the new magazine drops through the letter box and I haven't yet read the previous copy.
    I also have soooooo many draft blog posts that I start but never finish, as I need to add photos or research a little more.

    ReplyDelete
  38. lol this is sooo true! I end up going to bed far too late, hubby tells me I am addicted too! Love it. Good points!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm terrible for just 'nipping' on my phone and being there for hours! I do feel guilty but I can't help it!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Im not a "blogger" but enjoy reading the blogs lol :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. lol similar to a facebook aholic!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I look at mine once a day, I just don't get time :(

    ReplyDelete
  43. I don't blog ... yet ... but I am seriously considering starting so I can see I am heading for a slippery slope!

    ReplyDelete
  49. hahah love this

    ReplyDelete
  50. I love this...I wish I wrote on my blog more because I love writing it and posting pictures but it often gets pushed to the back of all the other things that get done.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'm not quite there yet... I will try harder :) x

    ReplyDelete
  52. I wish I had time for my blog. Unfortunately it has been much neglected this year!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm quite new to blogging but yes, I find myself spending more and more time reading and commenting :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Every day when I go through my emails, I flag the ones from bloggers and go through them all later in the day. The ones I really want to read I leave there and now I have hundreds to go through. One day I will eventually get round to reading them. But by the end of the day I feel shattered

    ReplyDelete
  55. I must admit a fair few apply to me but I am a closet blog- aholic try saying that once you have had a few :)

    ReplyDelete
