What Has Blogging Done To Me?

My goodness. This whole blog experience I now have in my life was totally in response to starting to seriously write The New Century Notebook. It was supposed to be an on line journal about the book writing process and learning how to blog and all sorts of interesting things.
"I don't feel like I have acheived any of that."

So what have I achieved? Well I now have FOUR active blogs I write on nearly daily. I have excuses for these like The Blog of Lists is my blog for fun to just have a blog that in some small way contributes to recording events in my life but in a slightly creative and non identifying way ... Then there is Journal Writing Tips which came from wanting to give back to regular readers who are really keen on journal writing ... and just because I am genuinely excited about journals and want to share with others (whether I get paid to or not) ... and then because I had feedback from those readers about journals and blogs having different techniques I started the sister blog Blog Writing Tips ... I mean it does all SEEM to be reasonable.
But I have FOUR BLOGS. That's ridiculous isn't it? Or greedy? Or something? It has taken me right off in to a new world ... and a new hobby ... it wasn't meant to do that!!!! (Ok all you blog addicts out there ... stop smiling at me knowingly!)

LOL--why you just can't help yourself. You love to write. You want to share what you know. You are a giver and in the process you get to do what you love. What's wrong with that? Go for it.

It does take over, doesn't it? Then there are lots of blogs to visit, little adjustments to make, traffic sites... etc, etc!

I can't imagine having FOUR blogs. Yikes! Of course, I post an awful lot, so sometimes I guess it seems as if I have more than one. I can write enough for two, apparently...

Oh Jeannie - thank you for that comment. I always feel like it is so selfish to write because I love it so much! You are cool!

The great thing you can always depend on from other blogger addicts Anji ... is support! Thanks!

Mr Fabulous ... I am obviously just a plain and simple addict! Actually I was doing fine until this week when I have been computer free for FOUR WHOLE DAYS! The withdrawls have been horrific ... am getting over them now the PC is back (damn virus!)
