An addiction?

Don't laugh. I had a tiny freaking-out moment last night (which happens often when I am alone with only my thoughts). I thought, I've been blogging too much and people are going to stop reading! They are going to get tired of it and stop reading my blog! Yes, I know that is a ridiculous thought (not because my blog is enlightening by any means), but because it is such a selfish thing. However, right then and there I decided to take a break from blogging for a few days.

But, I can't - it has become a addiction hobby for me. I love getting my thoughts out in words. I actually plan out what I am going to blog on days ahead of time and think of what I will write long before I actually do. At first I thought, Blogging is a lame hobby, Heather. But I have thought about it more, and realize that the hobby is writing and the avenue in which I accomplish this is through my blog. Although I could write in a journal, I just have never gotten into that and I really do like the thought that someone might read what I have to say.

And so, I even resorted to blogging about blogging.

It means a lot to me that you would read my blog and even comment about it. I feel supported and encouraged every time I read what you write. I also love to read other blogs - it is a new pastime that I thoroughly enjoy.

I do the same thing - after something happens to me, I think, "This will make a good blog post." :-)

Keep at it! You're already building readership!
