That awkward moment you realize that blogging is taking over your life…
When I first saw the topic I immediately said to myself “blogging hasn’t taken over my life.” But the more I thought about it, the more I realized it isn’t true. Sure, the physical act of blogging hasn’t taken over my life, but all the things associated with it have.
I spend a lot of time obsessing over the fact that I don’t blog enough as between school and Taekwondo (which I’ve also been neglecting lately) I have barely any free time. I really wish I had the time to blog more and hope that over the summer I can post more regularly. I also worry about followers and what books I need to review. In fact, I’ve begun to think of writing a review as ‘homework’ as its the only way I’ll ever get it done.
Before I blogged, I never had to think about why I liked/disliked a book and never questioned the number or type of books I was reading. Now I think about both of these things. A lot.
I don’t think its a bad thing that blogging is taking over my life either. I’ve become a lot better at expressing myself and have become open to a variety of opinions. I’m also a lot more aware of new releases and book news and have found many books that I wouldn’t have otherwise known about.
So though I’m not constantly blogging, it is a big part of my life.
What about you? Do you feel like blogging has taken over your life?
