I Am A Junkie


Beginning last November I developed some strange behaviors.  At times I get anxious and my palms begin to sweat. I cannot focus on the task at hand as my mind wonders. I experience moments of either euphoria or deep depression. I crave a fix. It started out as an occasional desire but more recently I need it several times a day– sometimes even several times an hour. I’M HOOKED!

I have become a blog stats/comments junkie.  I live or die depending on how many people have read me today and whether someone cared enough to say something in return.

Clarity of my condition became crystal this morning. I have been on the road with little time to access 48Facets. Definitely no time and even less energy to write a new post. Woke up late on a Saturday knowing that I had to write something to feed my modest readership before they left for good. But I was empty. I was ready to write about how empty I felt. But then my magic drug was there waiting for me. Totally unexpected and out of nowhere Pax brought me back to life with a comment on my last post. Someone in cyberspace had reached out and touched me. (Is it O.K. to use an old telephone company ad line in a 21st century on-line experience?)

Now the sun is shining and the day looks beautiful. Unfortunately this will only last until I need my next fix and someone has administered the drug.

    You are so funny….great post….yep, I know that feeling…cool thing about RSS feeds, though, is that there’s much less anxiousness about daily posts….I used to think I had to post every day….now I really don’t on the weekends, and that doesn’t matter much. But it IS fun to see how you combined the picture and the words….that’s Blog Artistry, baby!

    Frank, it is true that several readers from the last few days have been reading older posts. The Dilbert one gets a lot of hits. i don’t feel compelled to post every day but I miss it when I go several days without writing something.
