I'm Addicted

Okay, I'm going to admit it, I'm now addicted to the blogging world.  What have I gotten myself into?  Is there a Blogger's Anonymous?  Don't laugh; I'm serious, I need help.  See, it all started on February 1, 2011.  I was looking for something in my bedroom and came across a newsletter that I was supposed to be starting.  You guessed it, the name of the newsletter was going to be, My Sista's Voice.  I brought the four year old project to my dining room table where I have my laptop set up.  After taking care of some important business, I picked the newsletter up and had the bright idea to, instead of a newsletter, why don't I start a blog; another one.  Well, I took some of the contents of the newsletter and posted them as a blog, yes, this blog.  Can anyone say, "The rest is history?"

Me blogging on a daily basis is something that I have desired for a very long time.  I mean, I have all kinds of blogs out there on Word Press, several on and probably a few other ones.  I started them, then abandoned them.  Could have had something to do with the fact that the desire was not strong enough at the time that I started them.  If it had been strong, like it is now, who knows what place I'd be in life, right now.  Four years ago when I put together my official website over at, I guess I had no idea the impact that a daily blog could have on my life.  If I had known, perhaps I wouldn't be enrolled in online classes, working on an Associates Degree in Criminal Justice, which by the way, since I've started blogging, I haven't been applying myself as much.  That's why I'm posting this post.  I should be working on an essay for my composition class.  But what am I doing???  Yep, I'm blogging.

When I'm not blogging, I'm reading other people's blogs.  I went from daily reading an entertainment blog, so that I could keep up with people who could careless if I knew about their happenings or not, to reading about people who were more like me than the celebrities who had the kind of money I could only wish for.  All the time wasted reading gossip that someone else was getting paid to spread, I could have been blogging my own self and making friends with real people, who had similar interests as myself.  Anyway, here I am blogging my heart away when I should be at school.  I'm definitely going to have to create some kind of schedule for myself now.  I was thinking about creating one a while back, before I even started this blog, but now, with the addiction, if I want to stay on top of everything else that's going on in my life, I better get to scheduling.  Me with a schedule; that's pretty funny.  Ms. My Time Is My Own Now, yeah that WAS me. 

I have fifteen followers now, including myself, so my time belongs to you.  If you took the time to even follow me, even if you don't visit me everyday, the least I can do is have something fresh for you to read when you do stop on by.  I am committed to you, my dear readers.   That is scary when I think about it.  I guess it is kind of a good thing that I'm addicted, that will ensure I keep delivering, right?  I don't like to let people down, so the addiction will certainly keep me on my chosen path as a blogger.  I wish I could be this committed when it came to my writing projects that I've started and that need finishing.  I wish I could be this committed to my school's writing projects, I'd still me making them straight As I was making when I was freshly enrolled.  I guess I should work on developing an addiction to school too.  Speaking of school, I better get off of my blog and log into school.  That essay isn't going to write itself and I only have four more hours to get it done.  Until next time..."Live your life by loving yourself."
