Blogaholics Anonymous

Hi. My name is Matthew and I'm a blogaholic.

My drug of choice is comments but I also fiend for followers. You can often find me on the corner at 5 am, trolling for guest posts.

Today I am on Step One.

I admit that I am powerless over blogging and that my life has become unmanageable.

Tomorrow I'll share about Step Two.

Disclaimer: This post is satirical. It is not meant to offend anyone, or to belittle the integrity of 12 Step Programs anywhere, which have saved countless lives since their inception.

That is all.

KarenG said...

Funny post, but do we really want to give up this particular addiction? I'm not sure I do! btw, you made the top ten. Did you see my post from Sat?

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I need to join this. I'll get back to you after I blog for another four hours.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I guess I'm hooked, too!

Kelly said...

Ha! I really, really used to be. Now I'm somewhat recovered and am only blogging one or two times a week.
I had to make myself a schedule for reading blogs too so I didn't waste the morning away reading and commenting! (Not that they are a waste, I love them! It's entertaining and informative, but I just had to get my writing priorities straight!_)

Jen said...

Hi, I'm Jen and I'm a blogaholic. I'm still currently addicted and not sure I want help, but I'm interested in this 12 step program.

Bish Denham said...

Hi Matthew, my name is Bish and I'm a recovering blogaholic. I look forward to reading your 12 step program to help me in my continuing efforts to keep my blogging and commenting to a manageable level.

Joanne Brothwell said...

We could start up a virtual group - BlogAnon.

Clarissa Draper said...

Well, I'm not offended and I hate to say it, I'm addicted as well.

Slamdunk said...

Looking forward to it then Matthew. I think bloggers go through stages, but I want to read your satirical insights.

Hah, me want a mug!!

Jared Larson said...

I think I need to get more blogohol in my system. If I did, it'd benefit my progress. Most people are trying to get off the bottle when I'm trying to get on it. What the hell?

LTM said...

the disclaimer might have been the funniest part of that post.

not that I mean to offend anyone by saying that.

hope MI was fun~

Hi Matthew. Welcome and thanks for sharing. Know that you are not alone.

Holly Ruggiero, Southpaw said...

Bleck, me too. I should be working right now. Am I? No. I'm checking the blogs I follow.

The Alliterative Allomorph said...

LOL. I really like this. I'm such a blog addict that I think about checking them out all day long and lose concentration on my work. I have even got up way early this morning to catch up on yesterday becaue I didn't have any time! Can you believe it? This is nuts! ;o)

Lindsay (a.k.a Isabella) said...

Lol. I'm a blog addict as well. I've even started to catch up on the posts I missed yesterday while I was being dragged around Ikea.

maine character said...

I'd hate to enable your dependency on comments, but you spoke to me, man. I hear you.

Ishta Mercurio said...

Oh, man. Me, too! LOL! Posting at midnight... Dear, oh, dear.

erica and christy said...

Like your mug, but, um, we're not ready for a support group. I mean, we blog as a team and it's only an addiction if you do it alone, right? So we don't need no stinking support group, thank you very much. ;) (now, our addiction to winky emoticons is a whole different story.....)
