Is there such a thing?
I was following a link this morning and some how I ended up in a Blogging Addiction Quiz! Of course, I took the questions as a grain of salt, but it was humorous AND intriguing, and it has made me think!
Not very often have I posted to my blog more than once a day, and usually I have something I want to share. First and foremost I think of my blog as my own journal. Back in junior high and high school I think you could probably call me a journal addict too. I kept notebooks for thoughts, ideas, letters ---they are still in a box somewhere. I need to remember where so I can go burn them before my kids find them.. LOL!
So back to blogging….let’s see how I did shall we?
((Is 57% good or bad? I have no clue!?))
But this is something that I DO talk about a bit in my lecture. There is so much available to us as Quilters! Blogs, email lists, chat forums, facebook, yahoo chat, gmail chat, terrific websites with how-to-videos, subscription quilting channels…and give-aways! How we love to chase down the give-away blogs just in case we might win something! I’m guilty of it too! Both in the giving, and of the leaving of the comments! It’s All great! But when is too much too much? How do we find balance?
For me, if blogging severely cuts into my quilting time, it’s not a productive thing. I am really finding the need to spend what little time I have actually SEWING something, than reading about everything else that is out there. I know there are some great things I am missing! But it’s like reading a great cook book, but only reading it…and reading the next recipe and the next recipe, always afraid there might be a better one down the line --- and never actually getting off my keester to go COOK SOMETHING. What good does it do?
So! I’m offering up a challenge weekend! This weekend…let’s see what we can sew away from the computer. Let’s try to find a bit of balance. The computer will be here Monday --- are you up for it? Really! Any posts you missed will be here Monday too, you just have to scroll down the page to find them!
