How to Become Addicted to Blogging

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!

 

Writer’s Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – Obsession.

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.”

-Henry Moore

 

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!
