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!
I am taking part in Ronovan and Colleen’s Writers Quote Wednesday Challenge, and this week we have been given ‘obsession’ as our prompt word.
I felt that the following quote by sculptor, Henry Moore, pretty much sums up how I feel, and will be the subject of my poem.
“The creative habit is like a drug. The particular obsession changes, but the excitement, the thrill of your creation lasts.”
I have a bit of a problem
That I really ought to confess
Whenever I find a new hobby
I suddenly start to obsess!
First of all, it was sewing
I spent loads of money on that
But sadly, most of my creations
Were nothing better than tat!
I also get caught up in knitting
Stockpiling mountains of wool
With so many projects unfinished
I really am such a fool!
I had a go at card making
Buying up lots of supplies
I made a card for my daughter
After five or six tries!
And then I discovered blogging
As a way to cope with depression
I have slowly formed an addiction
And have yet another obsession!
