Hi My Name Is Phil And I'm A Blogaholic

0 comments suggest edit

I think it’s about time to found a group devoted to helping blogging addicts deal with a new and pervasive addiction. This occurred to me the other day when my wife needed help putting away the dishes and I mumbled something about “Only 86 more entries to go in Scoble’s link blog.”

Let’s just say that she was not amused.

So to help others out there who may suffer from the same affliction, I offer some scientific indicators that you too might be a blogging addict.

  • You’re name is Robert Scoble
  • You subscribe to Scoble’s link blog
  • You’re reading this post and it’s still Thanksgiving.
  • You’re blogging about your addiction…on Thanksgiving
  • You try to regale your friends with interesting stories, but they’ve already read it on your blog.
  • These same friends only email you with interesting links hoping to make your blog.
  • In order to get you to take out the garbage, your wife posts a comment on your blog.

Take heed of these indicators and if you identify yourself to be a blogaholic, join in my new Blogaholics Anonymous group. We’ll be meeting in the comments section of this post. Oh, and go help your wife with the dishes.

    Is there any feed reader in Windows that can rate the blogs (something like itunes ratings). I have a lot of feeds and something like that would be very useful.

    Spoiala, we may be adding that feature to RSS Bandit soon. However, I have an AmphetaRate plug-in that works.

    To think.... I might have been one of the first dealers to turn you on to blog-crack.

    Hey Phil, saw you checked out hubby Chris's blog and thought I would drop by in a reciprocal manner and see yours. So here. Cool stuff - I think I'm a bit behind the times, but can I add my email addiction to your anonymous group?

    Susan, your neighbor.

    PS: We love Twiggy!

    Of course Susan! We welcome all comers. Especially Twiggy Lovers.

    However, I have to warn you, if you ever let me set you up with an RSS Aggregator, you'll soon obtain another addiction. ;)
