Hello ladies and gentlemen, my name is Marvin and I’m a blogaholic.
I don’t know about everyone else but it seems like there are not enough hours in the day, especially for someone working diligently on a side business. Maybe its just me and I need to suck it up and drive on but I’m find spare time more and more scarce.
Case In Point
I use to be an athlete and after that a soldier, needless to say physical fitness has been paramount for the majority of my lifetime. However, over the past two years I have seen a steady decline in my diet, sleep, and consistency of workouts. Obviously a lot has changed in two years, we have a daughter and are expecting a son any day now but I find myself wondering how did I get to this point. My father says my priorities in life have changed, which I agree and can see his reasoning. I just wish priorities changing didn’t add 20 pounds to my waistline!
Today was the day I was going to stop complaining about not having time, get up off my butt and go the gym to get a good sweat in. Well…. I actually just got back from the gym and all I could think about during my “brief” workout was:
“I wonder how many unique visitors I have today?”
“Did I forget to properly categorize the article I wrote last week?”
“Do I have anymore fans on my Facebook Page?”
“Oh no! I still need to submit my article to the carnivals!”
“Will my Google Page Rank go to 3 today?”
“I still need to check my Alexa Ranking”
“Who has emailed me in the last 45 minutes? I should go check my phone after this set!”
“Has anyone tweeted one of my articles?”
“Can I keep up with this blog once my son is born?”
I’ll stop there, but trust me there were many more questions running rampant in my head at the gym this morning.
Are any of you out there blogaholics? Possibly recovering blogaholics? If so, I’d love to hear some of tips and tricks you’ve done to streamline your efforts while blogging.
