Am I a Blogoholic?

February 5, 2009 at 9:41 am 7 comments

I was surprised when a friend (who shall remain unnamed) asked if I didn’t think I had become “too fond” of blogging. I asked what she meant by that, and she said “Well, do you think you are addicted to blogging?” I responded that I didn’t think so, and she said “See, you are in denial!” Hmmm … this got me thinking.

I decided I would take a test and see if I was indeed a blogoholic – just so I would know. And here is the result.

addictedSigh! Okay so I enjoy blogging. What is wrong with that? Do I cause anyone any harm? I wouldn’t think so considering that the traffic on my blog has been increasing. Some of the discussions that posts generate also indicate that at least a few of the topics are of some interest to my visitors. Also it keeps me away from mischief. 😉

It was suggested that I consider therapy – you know something akin to Blogoholics Annonymous. Why would I do that? I find blogging therapeudic. I enjoy sharing things I have seen or read about, photos I have taken or videos that are out there which may be of interest to others. I love talking about the innovation that exists in Pakistan and highlighting products and initiatives that catch my eye.

Okay I could perhaps sleep more if I didn’t focus on blogging at night and in the early mornings. But hey sleep is highly over-rated. 🙂

    Interesting how the exercise of expressing yourself in words becomes a habit: but why should this be negative? Is it intrusive for others? No, it is not forced upon anyone, that’s the wonder of the Web and pull media.

    Does it reveal too much of yourself? Many stories have been told and retold about the dangers of the Web and the persistence of anything published here. Victims are said to include children, so there is some smoke, which may or may not signal a fire somewhere. Your blog, however, paints a nicer picture.

    Apart from documented cases of stalking, the Web remains mostly harmless, so don’t panic. One is tempted to posit that as often happens with technology, it is people who are at fault, not the technology itself.

    And it is people like you, who refuse to be bowed down by naysayers, who help to keep the Web open for all to learn from, and to enjoy.
