  1. Yes!

    I’ve experienced point 9 (my wife has her doubts I’m actually blogging every night….) and point 5 (guilt when I spend two hours during the working hours)!

    But, then again, I’m blogging about my industry!

  2. LoL at “your lunch hour becomes your blog hour”, I tried that a couple of times 😉

    And point number 8 is so true, I just wish I could actually post all those things that I mentally blog while driving, taking the bus, and multiple other occasions.. hehe.

    I don’t think I can stop anytime though!

  3. Well, can’t say I’m an addict. But if you would have published this list 12 years ago when I was doing my undergrad and replaced the word “blog” with “IRC”, I wou soooo be screaming “guilty” right now….

  4. I guess the time I was forced to spend away from my blog kinda cured me from some of these symptoms and I am doing my best to stay on the wagon 🙂

  5. 10. Check my status? Would be guilty if I knew how.
    9. N/A. But “Mama” complains a lot.

    7. Guilty
    6. Guilty
    5. Guilty
    4. Not Guilty… so far.
    3. Stop? Why?
    2. Guilty
    1. Not guilty,,,

    I don’t want to divert this serious topic on blogging addiction, so I will email you! (you may not really care, but i am yet to respond to the other one! I am still trying to form a counter argument… just kidding!)

  7. I think I’m having some symptoms! I couldn’t sleep last night and, at 5:30AM I headed to the computer with that craving to check my blog!
