blogaholic

A blogaholic is someone who’s addicted to blogging. Most of the time, this is true for someone who is new to blogging and for some it’s hasn’t changed a bit even after several years of blogging. What are some of the characteristics of a blogaholic? Checking your blog stats every few minutes, checking for new comments and your daily routine includes reading your favorite feeds and checking your Adsense earnings.

What’s with the title of this post? Well, after reading Jonathan Deamer’s list of “50 Signs You’re A Blogaholic”, I couldn’t help but ask myself “Am I A Blogaholic?” I didn’t count how many of the signs listed that I exhibit but after my wife read the article she said that it describes me. Hehe..

Here are some of my favorite signs. These were the ones that made me laugh:

  • You’re considering naming your first-born child Scoble.
  • You’re listening to the travel news and get excited by the phrase “heavy traffic”.
  • Your breakfast of choice is toast, cornflakes and Google reader.
  • You care more about what Technorati says about your authority than what your children do.
  • When asked to feed the dog, you think “RSS or Atom?”
  • Your lifetime goal is achieving a Page Rank of 10.
  • People in the street recognise you from your MyBlogLog photo.
  • Under the hobbies section of an online dating profile you just put “Googling myself”.
  • Your lifetime goal is achieving a Page Rank of 10.

    @BigDadGib – You’re welcome! I know it’s not an easy task. I can’t see myself go through that even only for a day. Hehe :D

  • BigDadGib, July 18, 2007 @ 10:12 AM

    Thanks JP,
    Yes, I am blog free now.

    I’s not easy.

    I am posting my progress two or three times a day on my blog. LOL When I’m not checking my CSS file. LOL

    @Ade – If that’s the case, then you should date a lady blogger so you’ll have something in common and she likely won’t mind talking about blogging on your dates. ;)

  • Ade, June 13, 2007 @ 10:51 PM

    I think I am addicted to blogging. I sometimes bore my dates because I talk about blogs all the time. :(

  • JP Habaradas, June 12, 2007 @ 4:54 AM

    @mr nice ash – Finally, someone who admits to being a blogaholic! Hehe

    @SexyMom – You’re not the only one. I think most of us do get excited with “heavy traffic” and I’m sure your blog gets a lot of it. :)

    @christian – I guess I am. It’s all good, I might be mistaken but I do remember sending you a message. Anyways, thanks for linking me up.

  • christian, June 12, 2007 @ 12:32 AM

    Lol. You must be a blogaholic! Seriously, those made me laugh. Oh, I haven’t received any mail from you (or did I just miss it? Haha). Nevertheless, I’ve already linked you.

  • SexyMom, June 12, 2007 @ 12:01 AM

    i don’t know, i am not telling, but am excited about heavy traffic (LOL)

  • mr nice ash, June 11, 2007 @ 10:36 PM

    I certainly am a Blogaholic.

  • JP Habaradas, June 11, 2007 @ 7:55 PM

    @Joni – I guess Jonathan Deamer is also a blogaholic because it takes one to know one, right? Hehe :D

    So what will you use to feed your hamsters? Google Reader? LOL

    @ron – Hehe..oo nga eh, ang kulet ng list. Thanks! Bago pa lang, since last week lang. :)

  • ron, June 11, 2007 @ 7:49 PM

    hehe. kulet. I’m not a blogaholic. nice new layout. kelan pa to?

  • Joni, June 11, 2007 @ 6:59 PM

    Haha that's a good list. I think I'm borderline blogaholic too. Should I feed my hamsters with RSS or Atom? lol

  • JP Habaradas, June 11, 2007 @ 8:30 AM

    They said that the most difficult thing to control is your appetite. If you can’t be addicted with food, I guess you most likely won’t be addicted to blogging too, right? But from what you mentioned, to me those are sure signs that you are indeed becoming a blogaholic! Hehe :D

  • fruityoaty, June 11, 2007 @ 8:15 AM

    Nope, I’m definitely not a blogaholic… simply because I don’t have an “addiction” type of personality, lol… even with food.

    Although lately, I did notice something which might be an indication that I’m turning into a blogaholic, haha. The food I’m eating is getting COLDER AND COLDER, hahaha… because I always have to take pics of them before I eat. :lol: My first thought is not eating, it’s always, “Oh, this would be good for my blog!”

  • JP Habaradas, June 11, 2007 @ 7:45 AM

    @koolitz – So what do you call yourself then? A surfaholic? browsaholic? Hehe :D

  • JP Habaradas, June 11, 2007 @ 6:00 AM

    @Ana – I only exhibit a few of the signs listed so I’m also not a blogaholic. Hehe :D

    Btw, long time no see. I thought you forgot about my blog already. Thanks! I had a good laugh after I first read this article that’s why I wanted to share it with you guys.

  • koolitz, June 11, 2007 @ 7:35 AM

  • Bonita in Pink, June 11, 2007 @ 5:40 AM
