I think one of my favorite posts that I’ve written has been the one titled You Know You’re a Blogger When. Here are a few of things that I wrote in that original post:
“You have a conversation with a girlfriend or your husband or even a random stranger & half way through the convo you realize that this could be an amazingly, AWESOME blog post. So you excuse yourself, go running as fast as you can to your blogging notebook & start jotting down the idea–and whoever you were talking to at the time thinks you’re nuts. But you don’t care because you like totally know you’re going to get like a gazillion comments from the brillant idea you just scribbled down!“
“You lust after google followers like you do Calvin Klein models.”
“The baby is asleep. The house is quiet. It would be the perfect time for a bubble bath & a good book. Too darn bad your computer can’t go in the tub with you because let’s face it you’d really rather blog!”
You’re doing the dishes. You are just thinking to yourself about how you can’t wait to have a second baby in a couple of years and then you get a panicked thought runs through your head, “Oh Gosh! Think of all the blog time a 2nd kid would eat into! That would be awful!”
You’re still thinking about that second baby and your next thought is, “Oh Gosh! Think of all the blog material a second baby would bring!”
You have friends in real life who tell you that they love your blog. At which point you start telling them how they absolutely must start a blog! You go on and on and on about how much they will simply adore blogging. And some of them listen to you! Trust me, when you are promoting blogging during a football game party at your house, then you are a serious blogger.
It’s 11:08 pm, you should have been in bed 2 hours ago, but instead you’re writing a list about how you know when you’re a blogger in a BLOG NOTEBOOK, not even in your drafts, and you carry this notebook around with you every.where.you.go.
You check your email every morning to see if you have any new comments on your post for the day. You get your email open, you’re ridiculously excited, & boom, that’s when you see it. No Comments. At which point you freak out, “PEOPLE HATED IT!” Then you go to your blog & see that blogger didn’t schedule your post like it was supposed to. $#@!& blogger!
This was too funny, because right now I am sitting at my computer blogging instead of being in bed like I should be LOL. This is all too true! I hope you have a great week and I am so glad that you are going to see me as your first comment on this post tomorrow morning =)

I think this is hilarious DD because it's just so true. There is nothing worse than stopping your friend half way through a sentance and asking them to repeat what they've just said so you can it down on paper exactly how they said it.
Ok maybe I need to live a little more and then post better blogs about it later lol.
Take care thanks for sharing KC xx

Sooo true! I find myself doing all of the above. If I don't have my notebook I write notes on anything I can find. When I clean out my purse I have notes all over the backs of receipts!
i love that you found a cartoon about blogging!

This made me laugh so hard and it is so true!!!
So true!! I think the latest I stayed up to blog is 2am. Actually, I was already in bed at 11pm then inspiration hit! And I couldn't let go of it. Let me tell you, I regretted it in part in the morning because it was so hard to get out of bed. But I was happy that I was able to write that post without having a hard time recalling how I wanted to say or structure a sentence. LOL.
Yes, I'm a tad addicted.
Too funny!! I still blog on the anon, where I even have to hide from the husband. Yah. It's not easy ;p
Love it. Where did you find the monkey pic. It's awesome.

I've had this post in mind for a while about how much easier it would make life if I could just hyperlink during conversations.
So many times I'm talking to someone and I think, "Geez, I wouldn't have to explain all of this if they would just read my blog."
I think that thought could make part 3!
