With a gestation period of a mere two months, I seem to have also turned into a BAT. I know I should join the BA (Bloggers Anonymous): I neglect chores, forget to make up my bed, clean the kitchen, leave mail and newspapers behind - all due to the urge to read or write blogs all day long. Why get addicted to heroin or meth when you could blog?

Which got me thinking... Hm... Bloggers Anonymous!
I can hear the radio ads now, "Hi, I'm Dr. A, I'm not only a doctor, I'm also a client!" How about this as a slogan, "Join BA today! It's no BS!" Or, "Think you're addicted? Well, let's blog and find out!" There could be t-shirts, mugs, posters, mouse pads, key chains, etc --this could be HUGE!
But, alas, when it googled it, I found this article from the Wired magazine website. Don't get me wrong, funny stuff. But, I think I'll keep my day job. How about BATS Anonymous? Or, Idiots Anonymous? Would those work?
Here are the "minutes" of the previous Blogaholics Anonymous meetings:
I like to call it "blogaholics anonymous!"
"Hi, my name is DP, and I'm a blogaholic . . ." ;o)
Actually, I think we all seem to manage our lives without letting our blogs take over. It's like keeping a journal, only we get to journal together.
I vote for DP's tag line ... and I cast my vote for Dr. A as the first chairperson!
Not sure about Dr. Engel's "addiction" though ... I know he spends just as much time eating as he does blogging ...
Dr. A, Seventh heaven! You are the very first blogger who has actually quoted my blather! Dire warning... that means that you are now another victim of BA.
"I'm Artemis, and I'm a blogger"
does anything else really need to be said?
Looking forward to more terrific insights/links
I love this ! Dr. Engle described me perfectly.
I second Moof's vote!
my name is May, and i have BATS. now, pass the tissue :)
by the way, welcome to the blogosphere...
You mean you guys only just started neglecting the rest of your life due to blogging? I've been neglecting chores, cooking, cleaning up, making the bed, and well...organizing for my entire life! haha Of course, starting a blog didn't help... Now I walk in the door, pet my cat on the head and race straight for my laptop...it's sad, I think I've been home for an entire 3 minutes. LMAO
Who else gives up socializing so they can socialize on a blog??
"Hi, I'm Carrie...and I'm a blogaholic...." Yup...if the shoe fits. :)
Thanks everybody for stopping by today. I think that we had a good first meeting of BA. We only have eleven steps left to go on this journey. I know we can do it. One blog at at time....
Found you through moof.
I must admit, that this blogging thing which was supposed to be a way to inspire my writing has taken on new life.
I actually have two blogs now. Ack!
