To become addicted to blogging
Is extremely easy to do
Just follow the steps I will teach you
And you will find yourself hooked on it too.
First, you must write a blog post
As without one, you can’t go very far
It can be about almost anything
From sewing to buying a new car!
Then you sit and wait anxiously
Hoping you’ll get a response
You know that it is important
Although you feign nonchalance
Next, you have to be friendly
It’s vital to have interaction
The giving and receiving of comments
Is a cause for immense satisfaction.
Blogging takes a lot of commitment
So doing it every day
Is a great way to speed up the process
As addiction will soon come your way.
Other bloggers will become your new buddies
And you learn from each other as well
You spend all your time now on blogging
You are falling under its spell.
Sometimes it becomes so annoying
When you have something interesting to say
But you haven’t the time to post it
As ‘real life’ gets in the way!
You constantly check notifications
And hope there’s a comment or two
This blogging obsession is deepening
And there’s not a lot you can do!
You have even started to notice
That sometimes when you go out
And something unusual happens
It will be great to blog about!
If you are paying attention
And are following my tips to the letter
Then you too will be addicted to blogging
I can’t think of anything better!
Ha. Very good! Recognized myself in your poem, for sure!
Love it sis! From one addict to another!!!
WE jusut can’t stop ourselves, Sis!
I am glad you about your addiction, Sis ?
It happens to the best of us, Judy. But I have never taken to doing the daily blog…a few times a week works best for me. Great piece.
Thanks Van. I don’t know how some people manage to blog several times per day, that’s for sure! 🙂
Yes, I’d say that’s about right. I love to get up in the morning and read blogs and write and come home in the evening to comments and more to read 🙂 It is demanding at times but there are great people (like you) here and I’d hate to miss out!
I think that is the reason I love it, too. The variety and diversity of the blogs and bloggers is brilliant! 🙂
Totally connect to this on all the levels haha. My blogging went from “meh…one post every week…” to posting every day and sometimes forcing myself to just take a weekend off because it’s good to have a break sometimes but omg is that an email notification?!
It was bad for a while lol. I’ve started to get a handle on it now. There needs to be a support group haha
This is me!

Hello, and thanks for stopping by. I am Judy, in my (very) early fifties and decided that life definitely gets more interesting as it goes on! I am a wife and a mum and have just finished University as a Registered Nurse, after having worked as an Associate Practitioner in the NHS. I am also a poet and the author of my debut book, 'Rhymes of the Times.' I love to laugh, and I love rhyming words too, so I joined the two together, and my book was born. I am currently working on another book in the series also. I am a prolific blogger and enjoy writing funny stories, anecdotes, and anything really that takes my fancy.
