Addicted - I Think Not!
Two people who I sometimes call friends (hmphf!) were teasing me yesterday about being "addicted to the internet". First of all I am a work-at-home mom who does the majority - 99.9999% of my work on the computer - internet and email. That puts me on the computer a lot of hours. Secondly, my main uses for the internet are checking my bank statement, occasionally shopping online and blogging. I may be addicted to blogging in the sense that I do it regularly. Like right now, when I have about a trillion tasks to accomplish today, I thought I'd take a wee moment to shoot my thoughts out here into blogland. Okay so maybe I'm "addicted" to blogging. I don't say anything when others are absorbed in sports, work, gaming, television shows, etc. We can all decide how to invest our time. Also consider the fact that I moved a year ago to a place where I don't even have one single girlfriend yet - I have a few great prospects, but not one that I can just call and say, "Hey, let's go somewhere, I just need to get out." Anyway - I know they were just teasing - but I disagree - I am not addicted to the internet - I am a blogaholic!
