20 Ways You Know You Are Addicted To Blogging

Alright fine, you want me to admit it? I will then, I'm addicted to blogging. I know this may come as a surprise to some of you as this is only my 829th post ever written, but it's true, I am. How do I know? Well, you will see below. The clever "Daily Tay" and I came up with a list of how we personally know we have become addicted. Some you may recognize, others you may still be in denial about. Just you wait though, all of the below will happen to you at some point in time.

Sit back, read, and come to terms with the fact that you, yes you, are also addicted to blogging.


Are you addicted to blogging? If you find yourself nodding your head to any of these I hate to break it to you, but I think you might be. If the blogger shoe fits...

1. You've had dreams about other bloggers.

2. If you see it on a blog, you buy it. Clothes, jewelry, vajajay deodorant, etc. It doesn’t matter what it is but if another blogger has it, you need it. 

3. You plan your day around when you can fit in a post.

4. You break out into a cold sweat when you realize the pictures your husband just took of you while you stood outside in negative twenty degree temps turned out blurry, cut off, and of absolutely no good use. 


5. You sometimes catch yourself doing things just so you can blog about it.

6. Time is no longer measured in minutes, hours, days, and weeks, but rather by blog posts and blog posts only.

7. You get anxiety if you see you have an error in your post but aren't around a computer or phone to fix it yet.

8. You occasionally use your dog as a prop to pose with you during awkward public photo shoots.


9. You check your stats more than twenty times a day.

10. You stop responding to your name but rather only when somebody calls you by your blog title.

11. You respond to reader comments before you respond to family emails.

12. Your meals are a result of what you just saw on Instagram.


13. You spend hours on creating what you believe will be the one pin that will go viral, only to result in three repins.

14. You sleep with a notebook next to your head, just in case.

15. You read blogs right before you go to bed... And again when you wake up.

16. You suddenly want a new cool camera even though you know you'll probably never really figure out how to use it exactly right.


17. You sometimes think you know bloggers you've never met more than you know people in real life.

18. You trade out your WWJD bracelets for OOTD and WIWW.

19. You spend hours in front of the mirror because you will master that perfect messy bun look if it kills you.

20. You spend ridiculous amounts of money on a planner because Heaven forbid you forget to write down that you need to post a picture to Instagram at 2:34 pm on Wednesday afternoon. 


It's okay fellow bloggers, we're here for you. Now let's all go grab a glass of wine (and put it on Instagram of course) and then we can tweet about our problems together.

  1. I read this as I drink my wine, before I go to bed. Classic post & so correct. Glad I am not alone. Actually, I made a to-do list during my class.. in my class notebook. Only to rewrite it in my blogging notebook.

    Hi. I'm Kailagh and I'm addicted to blogging.

  3. Hahaha! This is great! I am new to blogging and basically have all 20 "symptoms" already. I think I have been blogging for the past 5 hours. Whoever is in the picture below #5 must live on the same street as my sister because that is her road!

  4. Not only did I fiercely nod my head to so many of the things on this list, but that last sentence made me pretty sure you were sitting right next to me, because the glass of wine in my hand is already on Instagram and my Twitter feed is open in the next tab over...

  5. Yes times 20. I can't decide if I love it or I'm ashamed of it. haha

  6. 13, 14, 15. And I definitely do things for the blog. Regardless of whether we're an alien species, at least we have each other!

  10. #4 and #6 so true! At least being a blogger makes you a bit more adventurous, got to do new things so you can blog about it!

  11. Oh my gosh so funny! My dog is in every post, I cant get a good photo for anything, and the first thing I do is read blogs in the AM. I don't do Facebook because I would just be addicted to that too. Thanks for the laugh! Susan

  12. You have to ask your significant other to take a solo shot picture "sorry you're not invited" of yourself before you leave the house for dinner/movie/date/daytime outing/you put on makeup/got out of sweatpants for once....on a daily basis.

  16. Me in a nutshell. I definitely refer to bloggers as "so my friend told me... I mean, well we're not actually friends. Just this girl I know... she's a blogger..." I think people are starting to question whether or not I have any IRL friends.

  17. All of these are too true.

    I have my running/fitness blog, and as I was getting sick during my last marathon, I thought to myself, "well at least this will make for some good content on the blog!" I am an addict!

  18. Yes , yes and yes . These points are SO accurate! I write blog posts at 6 am sometimes , right before leaving for school #sigh

  19. I knew I should've avoided this post like the plague. Now I can no longer lie to myself about this addiction. At least now I know where to find support! :)

  20. Dying...you two nailed it...what have we all become? Are we going to be okay? I mean, are we normal? The whole dreaming about other bloggers has to stop...I feel creepy.

  21. I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels incredibly awkward about blog photo shoots. Must remember to add doggy :)

  22. I love this! Can we add the following....#21 - The deep depression you feel when you click on your favorite blogs and realize you already read the post for the day.

    Oh, just me?! =)

  24. I'm not a blogger...but can I admit that I'm addicted to reading various blogs. And I totally buy stuff just because my fav bloggers recommend it (Husband hates that).

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love this list, and the blurry pic of you! It's nice to see some of the "behind the scenes" photos like that :) And, apparently I have an addiction, because I have been buying the crap out of what bloggers are advertising.

    ReplyDelete
  26. so true! i check my blog before anything else!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm not a blogger so most of these don't apply to me, but I enjoy reading blogs daily, so I'm definitely nodding along to #15! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. LOL This post was awesome!!!! I love it. And I am definitely addicted to blogging!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Well now that you've admitted it for the rest of us....

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yup I do all of these. I can't sleep at night if I haven't read certain bloggers posts that day. My parents think its a little crazy, but I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  32. As I fall into this blogging addiction I only hope it leads to a trip to those super fancy rehab facilities where all the addicts are super pretty and days are filled with pools that look out over the beach and spa treatments!

    ReplyDelete
  33. "Hi my name is Sarah and I'm a blogging addict." Except for the whole having a fancy planner thing... but I'm now going straight out to buy one because I saw it on your blog and must copy immediately! ;-)

  34. hah! These are so true...

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
